    “We had a great time and enjoyed some of the quirky features of the cottage.”

    We were glad that we'd carefully read the description and the upstairs rooms worked well for our group. Fabulous powerful showers and plenty of space for our group - thank you.

The property

This imposing old chapel is ideally located in a small lane, close to the River Gwril in the pretty village of Llwyngwril, in the Snowdonia National Park.

Situated in the foothills of Cader Idris, this traditional Welsh chapel has been renovated to create holiday accommodation with a difference.

The first floor provides spacious, open plan living accommodation with a wealth of exposed original beams and trusses and many of the chapel's old furnishings have been incorporated into the cottage to create a charming, cosy atmosphere.

The property’s five bedrooms include two doubles and a twin room on the ground floor, while upstairs there is a single room and a bedroom with cabin beds, each accessed by a ladder, which children are sure to love!

As well as flexible sleeping arrangements, there are ample bathroom facilities and a study area downstairs with a desk and two seater sofa.

The village amenities are just a thirty second walk away and the property is close to many riverside and hillside walks and with the beach just a ten minute walk away, you can enjoy long lazy walks along the shore and rock pooling at low tide.

Set in an area renowned for its fantastic climbing, surfing and cycling opportunities, the cottage is an excellent holiday base for an exciting getaway with family or friends!

Visit Fairbourne, with its two mile stretch of golden sands and narrow gauge railway, or explore the towns of Dolgellau, Barmouth and Aberdovey, all within easy reach from this lovely cottage.
