About Laura Morris-Lloyd

Laura Morris-Lloyd purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Laura Morris-Lloyd chose Caerphilly
I fell in love with Chapel House as soon as I saw the original bread oven and the Christmas tree in the garden. David, on the other hand, took a little more persuading. I watched Homes under the Hammer before attending the auction with my daughter and came home that evening as the proud owner of this wonderful property. However, it needed a lot of TLC. Over the following 18 months we replaced the roof, installed a log burner, central heating and complete rewiring to create a luxurious place to stay. We thought long and hard about the best layout for a holiday let and are very proud of the end result.
What makes this Cottage unique
The stunning views of Caerphilly mountain and the surrounding area can be enjoyed from the personal balcony, leading from the main bedroom. There are numerous walks/activities in the area, many of which are detailed on Caerphilly town is just 15 minutes walk or you can catch the bus which will get you there in 5 minutes. The bus stop for Caerphilly is located directly opposite the front door of Chapel House. Caerphilly Castle Like the famous cheese, the castle has long been synonymous with Caerphilly. This 12th century castle, surrounded by a series of moats and watery islands was the brainchild of Gilbert ‘the Red’ de Clare, a redheaded nobleman of Norman descent. He also built the original Castell Coch, ‘Red Castle’, located the other side of Caerphilly mountain. The Black Cock Inn Telephone 02920880534 You can reach the Black Cock Inn by walking up the hill outside the house. Carry on until the brow of the hill and on the right hand side take the road; this leads directly to the Black Cock. This is a easy 5-10 minute walk but you will need a torch in the evening as the country lanes are unlit. There is beer garden and play area. I would recommend booking. Cardiff is only 15minutes away by car, bus or train.

Lovely little place
Really good nice and out the way defo recommend it
Different than expected
The cottage is quaint and the welcoming basket much appreciated. However the photograph gave us a different view. It came as a shock to find out we were on the main road to Cardiff and the traffic noise at night time kept us awake. Not having a car and learning the bus system was a challenge which we finally figured out.
The Mountain View’s were beautiful and the scenery delightful,
The stairs In the cabin were a challenge wouldn’t recommend for someone with walking difficulties or bad knees
We love this little cute cottage and this was our 2nd visit.
I couldnt recommend it enough.
Lovely weekend stay
Our family had a lovely weekend staying at Chapel House. The house had all the comforts of home and the lovely welcome basket with some extra special treats for the kids was really appreciated. Good location, we were able to catch the bus into Cardiff from just outside the front door and easy driving to the other sights we wanted to get to. Would have no hesitation in staying here again.
Thank you Laura for our stay in your cottage , It was homely warm and very clean, we stayed over the weekend for the Rugby we had a fantastic time. Weather wasn’t great but coming in to such a warm cottage made us feel at home, I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone, 😊❤️
