Surrounded by lush green countryside and woodlands to roam, Capel Soar is the ultimate rural retreat.

A unique Methodist chapel conversion, this property is perfect for families or groups of friends seeking to explore this magnificent part of Wales.

Capel Soar is situated in Taicynhaeaf near Dolgellau in a remote but accessible location for your idyllic escape.

There are numerous walks from the doorstep of the chapel including the New Precipice Walk, Cwm Mynach and Coed Garth Gell Reserve.

Also nearby is the Clogau gold mining area.

As you arrive at the property, marvel at its characterful exterior before stepping in to find even more delights internally with an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional chapel charm.

Enjoy spending quality time together within the spacious sitting room with a seating area around the warming woodburning stove and another around the television - you can choose how best to spend your evening when you're not out exploring.

Move through into the dining room and raise a glass to your terrific retreat as you tuck into a tasty homemade meal, the kitchen hosting all you could need for a week-long stay when you're not out sampling the delicacies of the local area.

Also on the ground floor you can find a handy utility with both a washing machine and tumble dryer, perfect for those longer stays, as well as a shower room where you can freshen up after a day of rambling amidst the beautiful countryside.

Follow the stairs up to the first floor to find the family bathroom with both a bath and a shower to take your pick from, as well as four welcoming bedrooms consisting of a master king-size with a TV and its own en-suite shower room, a second king-size, a double and a twin, each room hosting a lovely interior and a snug spot to rest between adventures.

Start the day by soaking in your surroundings from the private gravelled garden before pulling on your walking boots and venturing out to explore the local area by foot.

The Mawddach Trail can be accessed via a steady stroll for those seeking adventure where you can also reach the local pub, George III, a truly scenic spot to enjoy a refreshing beverage on the estuary, or take the car to the nearby market town of Dolgellau where you can find a wider selection of pubs as well as shops and eateries to while away the hours.

Dolgellau is also the perfect spot from which to admire your surroundings; perched between the Cader Idris mountain range and the sea, there's no better spot for a holiday base.
