Property code: 80464

Set within the heart of a vibrant village within walking distance of the River Wye, offering spacious accommodation finished with an eclectic twist creating the perfect retreat for family and friends.

This quirky property is the ideal escape for artistic souls or those with an appreciation for fabulous artwork. The walls of the Gothic chapel are adorned with colourful pieces which create a truly unique setting and will undoubtedly inspire you to get creative. The property sleeps eight guests, so is ideal for large families or groups of friends. If you can tear yourself away from the house, the village has a lot to offer. Enjoy wild swimming at The Bont, stride out into the wilderness of The Begwyns or simply tuck into a hearty meal at the cosy pub. The chapel has been beautifully converted to create a warm and inviting home, whilst retaining its character and charm. Stunning arched windows flood each area with natural light and high ceilings give a sense of grandeur and elegance. The open-plan living area is a wonderfully sociable space. Dine together around the large dining table which takes centre stage, before sinking into the sofa to share a bottle of wine in front of the TV. Alternatively, curl up in the snug area with a book. The four bedrooms have been decorated in a unique style, with feature wallpapers, vibrant soft furnishings, and quirky accessories. Outside, dine alfresco in the chapel gardens, overlooking the village green. Glasbury is a great base for those who love to get outdoors and explore. On a summer’s day, head down to the pebble beach on the banks of the river, where locals gather to splash in the water or share a picnic in the sunshine. The River Wye passes through the village, and you can hire a canoe to explore the magical 4-mile stretch that meanders towards Hay-on-Wye. Once you arrive in Hay, take the time to peruse the quirky bookshops, antique stores, and cute cafes.

The Chapel on the Green is a lovely quirky property in a fabulous location. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners, who provided a delicious welcome basket, and gave excellent suggestions for places to go, places to eat, that all helped us make the most of our week.

We had a great time. The chapel is a lovely space and Glasbury is very pretty. We enjoyed some wild swimming from the little beach. We even saw a kingfisher and a jumping salmon by the river one morning.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
