About Rhulen Old Chapel

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Bedrooms: 4
  • Bathrooms: 2

Nestled in a quiet valley amidst the Radnorshire Hills four miles from the Welsh village of Paincastle, Powys, Rhulen Old Chapel offers comfortable accommodation for family get-togethers or groups of friends on holiday.

Sitting at the foot of Rhulen Hill, the chapel was built in 1861 and converted to a family home in the 1990s. Both the Wye Valley Walk and Offa’s Dyke Path lie close by, offering guests walking and hiking opportunities through the Welsh moors.

This dog-friendly cottage boasts many features of the original chapel, including exposed brick and stone walls. The well-equipped dining kitchen has the original stone floor and an open fire, whilst the rear boot room used to be the vestry. The first-floor sitting room has an open fire and rear balcony with views of the surrounding countryside.

A small sunroom to the side of this countryside cottage opens onto the patio and a cottage-style garden with a water feature and three headstones in the chapel’s small original graveyard at the far end of the grounds. Two ground floor bedrooms and bathroom with corner bath and bidet, and two first floor bedrooms and shower room with bidet allow guests to spread out comfortably.

Painscastle boasts a medieval castle built in the 1100s, with the large motte and bailey still visible today. Shop for provisions at the historic market town of Hay-on-Wye, known for its many specialist bookstores, or travel further afield to Builth Wells, home to an 18-hole parkland golf course and pony trekking centre, or Brecon Beacons National Park.
