Ty Capel,
SY20 8NS


Our delightful open plan holiday apartment was newly completed for the 2018 season. Ty Capel Studio is the first floor of what was originally the caretakers cottage for the adjoining chapel, where the hosts now live. Though small, the apartment provides our guests with all they need for a relaxing holiday. From the private entrance, stairs lead up to the apartment, which features a small kitchenette, bed/sitting room, shower room, and separate WC/washroom.

The south facing garden has incredible views overlooking the northern hills of the Pumlumon Massif in the Cambrian Mountains. Our guests are also free to explore the rest of the chapel garden, with a few more seating and viewing options. We have off road parking, and secure storage is available for bicycles.

Near to Wales' old capital, Machynlleth, and a short walk from Glyndwr's Way, it's ideally placed for walkers, days out in Snowdonia, trips to the coast, or discovering the Cambrians. Perfect for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors.
