Host Information

Host review score 9.9

Our delightful open plan holiday apartment first opened during the 2018 season. Ty Capel Studio is the first floor of what was originally the caretaker's 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 fabulous 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. We can no longer accommodate dogs. More info at https://tycapel.wales

We are Marion & Alex Burnham and we own and live at Ty Capel. We moved to Wales in late 2015 to spend more time enjoying the great wild places we love. We decided we'd like to share our space with others so they can also experience this wonderful area of mid Wales. We've never rented out holiday property before, but we know what we like to find when we go away, and we've tried to make it a place we'd love to stay. We hope you love this place as much as we do.

Darowen is a tiny village of some 20 homes and outlying farms, sitting on a short ridge between two hills. It is within a UNESCO recognised area called the Dyfi Biosphere. All roads leading to the village are up hill! The local community is chiefly made up of local farming families, and English incomers like us who love the gorgeous views. Everyone is friendly, with several homes welcoming holiday guests. While we don't have a pub or shop here anymore, we do like to meet up in each others homes for a good natter!
