Ty Capel Studio - Serviced holiday apartment

Our delightful 1st floor open plan holiday apartment first opened for the 2018 season. Occupying the upper floor of our cottage, with its own private entrance, it features a double bed, separate shower and wash rooms, and a small kitchenette. The south facing garden overlooks the northern hills of the Pumlumon Massif in the Cambrian Mountains.

For dogs (service ended!!)

Paws @ Ty Capel - fully licensed dog boarding

We used to provide a less stressful alternative to kennels, and dogs could stay with us in our home. For just a few hours, or several weeks, they lived with us as our own. We did what they liked; we played with them, had snuggles, took them out for walks, and we let them snooze. Alas, that part of our adventure is over for the present.
