The property

Salem is a picturesque, three-bedroom holiday retreat resting in the quaint coastal village of Llwyngwril in Gwynedd.

A converted chapel boasting stunning features, tasteful décor retaining much of its original charm, and a superb location just a stone’s throw from the closest shop and pub, Salem makes an idyllic base for a family, group of friends, or even sharing couples looking to book a relaxing, self-catered escape within the magnificent Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park.

Park up in the public car park near Salem, your wonderful new home-from-home, taking a moment to breathe in your surroundings before heading indoors.

Once inside, be instantly welcomed into a historic, bohemian-styled hallway, before unloading your belongings in the ground-floor bedrooms.

Continue upstairs to discover a fully-equipped kitchen, where the chosen chef can get to work preparing a delicious, home-cooked dinner, whilst the rest of the group can kick back and relax in the living/dining room.

This is a non-tech entertainment space, where you can have a go at a number of things; learn to play an instrument, write a song, choose a book from the provided selection, play poker and board games, or slip in to chill out mode in the zen corner and listen to hours of zen sounds and meditations.

There is also a small blackboard den in the lounge for kids to sit inside and draw with chalk, so there’s plenty to keep you occupied!

The utility room doubles up as a dog den and includes a washer/dryer so you can easily freshen up your wardrobe.

On warmer days or evenings, head outside into the courtyard with a glass of your favourite beverage to bask in your tranquil scenery, unwind into the infrared sauna or step onto the balcony to gaze out upon unrivalled views of the village and the sea on the horizon.

When sleep calls, head downstairs to refresh with a revitalising shower before hunkering down for a much-needed slumber in one of the home’s three bedrooms, including an impressive king-size with a gorgeous carved headboard and accompanying en-suite bathroom.

If you can tear yourself from your lovely new lodgings, set out on foot to discover the beach, accessed via a short walk along disused train tracks or uncover the delights of Llwyngwril, bisected by the shimmering waters of the peaceful Afon Gwril.

In the heart of the village, you will find the Riverside Stores, which sells homely essentials, and the The Garthangharad pub, which serves up traditional Welsh grub for those nights when you fancy a break from cooking.

Llwyngwril also has its very own train station that connects the village to other noteworthy locations dotted along the coastline, such as Tywyn to the south, home to the Talyllyn Railway - Tywyn Wharf Railway Station and the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum, whilst to the north, the bustling setting of Barmouth awaits, a popular tourist destination where visitors can enjoy serene ambles along Traeth Abermaw Beach, browse independent boutique shops, and savour Welsh cuisine at The Last Inn and Foxglove.

For the ultimate escape to North Wales, choose Salem.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
