Capel Pentwyn - 19th-Century Village School Turned Into A Rental HomeCapel Pentwyn  

In Wales, there are a lot of stone Victorian public buildings that are no longer used. Rather than tear them down, people have been converting them into homes. Capel Pentwyn is such a property and is available to hire for self-catering groups. Revamped while keeping original features, the interior is stunning, as you can see from these photos.

The local area of Wales is a holiday favorite attracting around 13 million visitors per year. It is sparsely populated compared to the rest of the UK but is full of mountains, myths, and beaches. The converted chapel is near the Royal Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley, an area popular with outdoor enthusiasts. Bird watching, hiking, and cycling are all fine ways to spend your idle holiday days, and the trails often go via gorgeous country pubs serving the best Welsh lamb and the national vegetable, Leeks. If you want to experience the land that birthed the wizard Merlin, this is the way to do it.
