Tawelfan (“Peaceful Place”) is the former caretaker's flat for Gosen Chapel situated near Llandovery, Carmarthenshire. This exquisite listed property has been carefully and lovingly restored by the owners, and nestles beneath the majestic Cynghordy railway viaduct.

Tawelfan provides a real retreat which combines the comforts of modern life with a vintage twist. There is a DVD player but forget the television! There is no dishwasher, but the vintage crockery can be washed in the butler's sink; sorry we can't offer a butler!

In the sunny front garden you will hear the sound of the babbling River Bran, bird song, sheep, the occasional tractor and the distant bustle of a few little trains creeping across the viaduct. Cynghordy's station on the Heart of Wales line is only minutes away giving access to villages and small towns from Swansea to Shrewsbury.

There are plenty of fabulous walks, rides, wildlife and beauty spots on the doorstep. Just remember that the nearest shop is seven miles away in Llandovery and the nearest pub is 4 miles away in Rhandirmwyn. This a perfect location to get away from it all.
