    Had a wonderful holiday with family. Place is amazing and spacious. You will be gutted when you get home and feel as if your house has shrunk. Definitely going back. The views and walks are the best. Doggies loved it

    Excellent holiday, good location with plenty to do in the close surrounding areas. water pressure is can be an issue but only if you are using multiple showers at the same time, if one at a time then all is good. Sun is at the front all day long so we did not use the back. Pool table kept the teenagers entertained, although we did need to glue the pocket on to stop it falling off and large table meant we could all gather round as a large family, however the table is in need of some attention as anything wet sticks to it mostly our monopoly cards. Couldn't find the gas card as not in the place as per booklet, however we did find it by the gas meter, the meter mistakenly said it was as 0p so we put £25 on to then find it already had £20, no big deal, but do ensure you put the card in first to see what is on. 2 fridges and 2 freezers were ideal to store a big families needs. Overall we had great fun at the Church, the weather meant we could use the front which is safe for kids and dogs, a few beach days out, you could take your pick depending how long you wanted to travel we did Tenby which was 1.5hrs but our other beach trip was just over 30mins. Bowling and animal farm were within 30mins. Also some great walks to the waterfalls which again you can take your pick depending on how far you wanted to walk. Would recommend as a great family holiday stay.

    It was just what we wanted. Plenty of communal room to enjoy with every facility to relax or be together in the kitchen/dining area. Lovely place to stay keeping the tradition of the church and a great new modern environment.

    We chose St Albans Church as a location to celebrate milestone birthdays with the family. It had everything we look for - several bathrooms, alternative seating areas so we can spread out a bit, something to entertain the kids and a location that's not too remote as we do like to have easy access to a shop. Arranging access was easy with a key safe code provided and the directions were clear. On arrival the property was warm and welcoming bottles of milk and wine were left for us. There was not quite as much credit on the gas meter as we expected, but a quick phone call to Jason remedied this and a few other things that needed attention the next day. Unfortunately it took a couple of days to fix the spa bath that we had all been looking forward to trying, but it was worth the wait when we finally got to enjoy the bubbles after a long walk on the only dry day. Access to Netflix and an XBox was probably the highlight of the teens' week, although we all enjoyed playing pool and doing some of the provided jigsaws as well. We didn't get out and about much as the weather was not great, but that's to be expected in Wales during March and we had a very relaxing time. It was worth the walk to the waterfalls and the museum in Swansea was interesting. A great property for a relaxing week away with no pressure to be out and about everyday was just what we wanted and what we got!

    Lovely week spent here with family. lovely spacious rooms and well equipt kitchen maybe some more large mugs and a cafetière would be nice but just a minor comment. We had our grandchildren with us and they gave the place 10/10 .the large kitchen with dinning area and play area was a great hit with all the family as we could all be together while cooking . The spa bath in the master bedroom was very relaxing

    We stayed at St Albans church for New Year 2018/9 and had a very mixed experience. The property certainly has the potential for 5 stars, as the refurbishment was to a high specification, however this was several years ago and the property is in need of some maintenance/TLC. Issues reported and fixed by the owner: 1) oven was replaced as previous occupants had broken the door. 2) money is supposed to be on the meter on arrival, when we arrived it wasn’t - the owner transferred the money to my Account immediately but we did have to go straight to the spar to top up the card ourselves. Issues reported and not fixed: 1) Space Invaders game didn’t work. At all. 2) Outside rear light wasn’t working - an issue whilst letting dogs out after 4pm 3) Yale lock on front door was broken Issues we didn’t report as didn’t want to spend the week complaining and wanted to make the most of what we had: 1) Bin bags from previous occupants on the path to the property the entire week. 2) 3 showers in the property but due to low water pressure only one could be used at a time 3) Pool table - 2 pockets held on by string 4) a dining chair collapsed when sat on by a 5 year old child 5) blocked drain in the downstairs wet room 6) kitchen overhead cupboards would not stay open, had to keep open with assistance or own head whilst emptying dishwasher 7) dishwasher was not integrated to units, whilst opening drawers the whole unit tipped out towards you 8) kitchen could be better equipped with sharp knives, better pans etc Our stay was comfortable and enjoyable but could have been so much better considering the price we paid

    The Church definitely has the wow factor. We stayed there for a long weekend with family and friends for my 60th birthday at the beginning of December. It was spacious, well equipped and comfortable. There were some nice touches - a complimentary bottle of wine and carton of milk and it was decorated for Christmas with a huge tree in the living room. The pool table was a great asset as the weather wasn't great. All in all a very memorable and lovely weekend.

    The chapel is an amazing space with lots of room and style. It has bags of character but great fun touches like a pool table and x-box. The heating was a bit temperamental but once warm it was very snug. Views of the stunning hills were breathtaking too.

    Very cold, despite maxing the heating. Simple things missing that would have made a big difference, such as something to make coffee in, enough pots and pans for the number of people the place caters for, having to top up the gas card yourself. Place wasn't overly clean, roof leaked and was covered in stains, generally was a bit shabby

    The church was incredible! It had everything we needed, the underfloor heating worked great and, although I worried about it being cold in November, we were absolutely fine! Poole table was a wonderful added extra! Also, milk and wine on arrival was a lovely touch. The surrounding area was fine, shop within walking distance. The waterfalls and hiking trail nearby were fantastic! We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be booking to come back!

    The pictures do this property justice. In 12 years of staying at holiday homes, often twice in a year we have never seen anything like this one. This is the experience we paid for. Met at the gate on arrival with a mountain of rubbish, the 3 bins were full with rubbish piled on top and around them, it was there for 3 days until my husband put the surplus out on the Monday morning, but moving other people’s rubbish was not what we paid for. St Albans looked like an abandoned, neglected house in a field as the grounds were so unkempt, the grass was nearly a foot high with tuffs of grass and weeds growing on path and steps. The shower in the master bedroom was so filthy with weeks if not months of build up of dirt that had you needed to use it you’d have kept your shoes on. There was a ridiculous amount of large cobwebs hanging off the exposed beams and huge window all in the living room. The house was warm enough in the morning and afternoon but in the evening it was really cold. No doubt the house in insulated to death but that huge window with 3mm thick single glass pulled the warm air outside as evening fell. That said, had the heating been our only concern then we would have overlooked it as the rest of the house was okay, but pile of rubbish inside the front gate, the lack of ground maintenance and poor standard of cleanliness is preventable therefore unacceptable to a paying guest.
