    There is ample of hot water, there are three good showers. The open space kitchen living area is excellent and works well. There are books and games to keep you entertained if needed. There is a play park short walking distance, suitable for young children. Asda do online delivery. The village shop is opposite. Otherwise there is a Co op at Tywyn, about a 10 minute drive. Aberdovey is a further 10 minutes and worth going to. Short walk to railway station and a pleasant walk to a pebbly beach. The parking for a single vehicle outside is tight but there is a nearby car park, which can also be full but you should be able to find somewhere nearby. There are no plastic plates bowls, cutlery for younger children. The children bedrooms on same floor as living area so open to noise. There is only one set of keys. The key safe does not operate correctly. The village pub had just closed down. There is no outside patio or garden. A stair gate would be useful. One of the cots had a base missing.

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!
