  • "For a four person apartment it was a shame that the table was very small and there were only two chairs."

    In every other way the apartment was brilliant, especially the interaction with the owners and manager.

  • "The apartment is well appointed with two good sized bedrooms (one en suite), a massive living/kitchen/dining area and a family bathroom."

    Our holiday was perfect for having somewhere so lovely to return home to every days . Gail (the property manager) is amazing - really good communication, helping out with local recommendations and providing a low table for the kids (as an alternative to the breakfast bar and stools). She also opened up extra parking spaces as other residents had more than one car each, which was really helpful as often on returning home our youngest was asleep! Thank you Gail! A luxurious and lovely place to stay and explore Dyserth and beyond.

  • "We had the most wonderful and memorable stay-my two little girls adored the apartment and beautiful gardens (as well as lovely Dave) where they spent hours doing handstands, cartwheels and chasing bubbles."

    Gail was superbly supportive and went above and beyond to ensure we were happy and comfortable; travelling as a solo parent can be daunting sometimes but it was the perfect destination for this. Gail recommended some great places; it’s a great base from which to explore and we will definitely be back!

  • "We had a lovely stay at The Breathe Residence."

    The apartment is beautifully appointed, with lovely rockstar touches, like the guitar and record player, complete with a selection of vinyl LPs! Location is beautiful, directly opposite Dyserth waterfall. So much to see in the surrounding area. We had a lovely day out in Conway; the castle is amazing and we'd also recommend a visit to Plas Mawr, a truly fabulous Elizabethan townhouse on the High Street. Lovely beach at Prestatyn. We're looking forward to our return stay!

  • "A beautiful property."

    The breathe residence is modern, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed and more for 2 adults and 2 children. We stayed for 7 nights and the apartment and town were the perfect base to explore North Wales. Everyone we encountered in the town was very friendly and welcoming. Gail was very helpful with suggestions for places to visit and made sure we had all we needed during our stay.

  • "We had a fantastic stay in Dyserth and the accomodation was beautiful."

    The apartment had everything we could possibly need and was decorated and maintained to a very high standard. The beds were extremely comfortable and very cosy and the gardens were stunning. Gail, the apartment manager, was so attentive and friendly and made sure we felt very welcome and at home during our stay. It was a great location as a base to visit many different places and attractions including pictureque walks right on the doorstep.

  • "We stayed for 4 nights from December 23rd 2021."

    We are 3 adults including our 22 year old son and the apartment was superb. It had plenty of space for the three of us to relax whilst still being cozy and warm. The bedrooms were a good size with ample room for all the things that we had "over- packed", comfortable beds and large, modern bathrooms. The apartment was equipped with everything that we needed The hospitality from the owners and Gail the manger was spot on with the right level of support without being intrusive We almost don't want anyone to know about it so that we can always guarantee availability but that would be selfish and no doubt, counterproductive. Our only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay.

  • "My partner and I have just had a lovely one week stay at the Breathe Residence at Bethal Chapel, Dyserth and definitely recommend it."

    Gorgeous, spotless, stylish, contemporary accommodation with everything you need and there's a great pub a few doors down (New Inn) serving a good choice of meals. It was our first trip to Wales and Gail, the lady that greeted us to give us our keys, was sooo helpful, kindly writing us out a list of places of interest around and about the area, along with post codes for the satnav - which proved invaluable to us novice Wales explorers! Thank you very much Gail. One thing I would mention is that the accommodation is at the foot of a steep hill and the local shops (Spar, post office, corner shop, butchers, chemist, cafe and another pub) are at the top which might possibly be an issue for some. The New Inn is on the same level though, so you won't starve! (typical price for a main course there was about £12).

  • "We loved the apartment - very well equipped; beds comfortable and showers hot."

    It was really really clean too. We’d gone as a mini break for my wife’s birthday & I’d bought a cake. I could have baked a cake in the kitchen! The location was great - easy to travel all around North Wales coastline. Thank you for a lovely find - the waterfall nearby makes a fabulous backdrop to the building. The garden is also a little gem. Gail who met us with the keys was very friendly and really helpful with local knowledge and guidance. So thank you to her too.

  • "We felt that for four people a dining table would be useful and mirrors in the bedrooms."

    The breakfast bar was ok, but not quite as comfy as sitting at a table. The beds were very comfy. The apartment is ideal as a base for travelling around

  • "Probably not suitable for couples with small children but great for adults, teens or couples with babies."

    Lots of cutlery, glasses etc. You even get towels. Directly opposite the falls and yards away from the New Inn which served good food and beer.

  • "Excellent apartment."

    Exactly as it appeared on the description. Clean and modern. Gorgeous windows. Basic kitchen equipment, enough for a short stay. Greeted by Gail who helped us with our stay and booking excursions. So helpful a no really welcoming. The garden was beautiful. Waterfall and walk straight over the road. Location was really central to beaches, local attractions and close by to some lovely villages. Would highly recommend.

The property

Located in the ancient village of Dyserth, known for it's mention in the Domesday book of 1086, is this first-floor apartment, The Breathe Residence Abode.

Nestled within a historic chapel that is owned by the lead singer of The Alarm.

The Breathe Residence is an ideal base for those who wish to discover this part of North Wales, with easy access to the coastline, the mountains, castles and all The Peters’ favourite spots.

After ascending the stairs, through the delightful converted chapel, to the first-floor apartment, you are welcomed into the property by an open-plan living space, where guests can relax on the sofa and enjoy some television on the flat screen 4K Ultra HD Smart TV if they can take their eyes off the views from the floor to ceiling windows.

Alternatively guests can use the contemporary kitchen to cook up a storm to enjoy round the Italian breakfast bar as you toast to a wonderful holiday; you can also find hints from The Peters' Family about The Alarm's rock and roll history and their favourite places to visit in the area.

The stylish property has two super-king-size bedrooms which can be set up as twins to offer guests a flexible sleeping arrangement, one of the bedrooms is lucky enough to have an en-suite shower room for that extra bit of privacy, and there is also a further bathroom where guests can choose to relax in the bath or wash those sandy feet in the shower.

The bedrooms, open-plan living rooms and kitchens still benefit from the original chapel windows, stretching from floor to ceiling and boasting natural day light.

Outside guests are welcome to one off-road parking spot on the shared driveway, but if you need more spaces, the waterfall car park is just across the road and is free!

For a perfect getaway to North Wales, choose The Breathe Residence as your base.

Note: Property can be booked with Refs. 1079446, 1079457, 1079459 and 1079460, together sleeping 22 guests.

The Waterfalls Apartments

The Waterfalls Apartments are beautifully finished inside a historic chapel that dates back to 1823, (owned by local couple Jules and Mike Peters), situated opposite the stunning Dyserth waterfalls. Mike is the lead singer of The Alarm, the renowned Welsh rock band, appearing on stages around the world with U2, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen and many more. The Alarm Chapel is also the site of many recorded Alarm albums over the years and when The Alarm are not touring the world, you will find Mike and Jules pottering about the village of Dyserth where they reside (and where Mike was born) with their two children, Dylan, Evan ap Michael and Golden Retriever, Ziggy Stardust. The Chapel has been lovingly developed by Mike and Jules over the last few years, transforming this special holy place into five modern apartments with Italian furniture and finishings. All the apartments come with off-road parking as well as flexible sleeping arrangements, for extra convenience. The village of Dyserth, which was once recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086, lies below the slopes of Moel Hiraddug - designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1985; its wildflower spaces harbour such rarities as white violets and orchids while overhead you may see buzzards wheeling and, if you are very lucky, peregrine falcons. The name Dyserth has evolved from the original Dissard which means “hermit’s cell”, the village is steeped in history and the remnants of previous dwellers are dotted around the landscape - from an ancient pre-Roman hill fort on the top of Moel Hiraddug to the industrial heritage of quarries and lime kilns. Visitors have been coming to Dyserth since the 18th century to enjoy the fresh air as it is situated several hundred feet above sea level. The village is renowned for its spectacular waterfall (situated opposite the Waterfalls Apartments) which cascades seventy feet from the River Ffyddion in the centre of the village near the Parish church of St Bridget with its superb stained glass windows. Within walking distance from the Chapel, you can visit the local Waterfall Shop as well as local pubs, The Red Lion and New Inn, whilst further up the hill in the upper village is the Bod Unig Pub (where Mike was born) and Frankies Coffee Shop (all favourites of the Peters’ Family). An award winning butchers is situated on the High Street as well as a chemist, beauticians, hairdressers, gift shop, barbers, 2 convenience stores and Post Office plus a Chippy and Indian Takeaway! Nearby there is the dramatic ruins of the 13th century Rhuddlan Castle, where Mike and Jules promoted Rhuddlan Castle Rocks, a concert featuring The Levellers and Ocean Colour Scene as well as being the location for the award-winning film Vinyl, filmed at the Castle and the Chapel, featuring acclaimed actors, Phli Daniels and Keith Allen; in Rhuddlan there is also a stunning golf course (discounted green fees on request as the Peters Family play golf). A short drive or walk takes you to the coast, (the Peters’ Family are avid hikers), and you can explore the local seaside towns of Rhyl and Prestatyn which boast miles of golden sandy beaches and stunning new hip beach bars, including the KiteSurf Bar, The Pavilion 1891 Restaurant & Theatre and the funky Nova Beach Cocktail Bar where you can watch the sun go down after a memorable day spent between the mountains and the sea. Further afield, the Chapel is the perfect launch pad to enjoy the scenic majesty of Snowdonia National Park plus the gateway to adventure and all that local firm Zip World can offer, be it Treetop Nets, a Forest roller coaster, or the fastest zipline in the world; not to mention Surf Snowdonia where you can enjoy the surreal and invigorating experience of surfing in the mountains! The island of Anglesey beckons in the distance, less than an hour’s drive away with sandy bays, rocky coves, windsurfing and the best parts of the North Wales Coastal Path which leads you all along the coastline from The Chapel and beyond. Head inland to the lakes and the market towns of Denbigh and Ruthin, set against a backdrop of castles that have to be seen to be believed. Whichever direction your staycation takes you, the Waterfalls Apartments are a splendid base whilst you explore the beauty and diversity of all that North Wales has to offer. The Peters’ Family tour the world every year but have a passionate love affair with their local Village and are excited to welcome you to share in all their favourite experiences of Home entwined with their experiences from distant shores. There is a welsh word called ‘hiraeth’ with no direct translation other than a ‘longing’ or a ‘desire’. We hope that The Waterfalls Chapel will stir this feeling in you and create a holiday of a lifetime.
