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.

Fantastically located for exploring the dramatic landscapes of the Brecon Beacons National Park, attending the Hay-on-Wye literary festival, and enjoying some time away from it all, this colourful, converted chapel is a great destination for a retreat. Sleeping eight guests over four bedrooms, with three of your dogs welcomed too, sit amid provoking artwork, characterful windows and eclectic features, and spend sociable evenings enjoying each other’s company. Less than 10 miles from the largest natural lake in South Wales and less than 5 miles from Hay-on-Wye, there is somewhere nearby to entertain guests of all ages.

Converted into a home in 1998 after years as an active gothic chapel, this gorgeous bolthole is brimming with eclectic, rich and quirky style. Head from the lobby into the large kitchen where you are met with bright colours, tall ceilings and all the space you need to cook up delicious feasts. The breakfast bar provides extra space to prepare ingredients so you can call upon others to make light work of mealtimes and it’s also a great place to gather with your morning mug of coffee. Enjoy sociable evenings at the dinner table or dish up at the large table outside for an al fresco feast. For some well-earned down time, sink into one of the comfortable sofas and switch on the TV for a moment of peace and quiet. Artwork adorns the walls throughout, beautifully complementing the rich colours and textures of this home. Rotated twice a year, the artwork adds a gallery feel to this home, making it a great place for creatives to retreat to. Climb one of two staircases to reach the four, first-floor bedrooms, decorated in cool, colourful tones and patterns, with beautiful feature windows letting natural light flood inside. Freshen up in the family bathroom, family shower room or your en-suite and get ready for the day ahead. There is parking on the nearby road, subject to availability.

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.
