The cottage

This stunning conversion of an old chapel vestry is beautifully presented to a high quality with wonderful pieces having been individually-sourced and hand-crafted to create a unique holiday home.

Set in the village of Penrhyndeudraeth, this uniquely-designed property is centrally located for the village amenities and is ideally located for exploring this wonderful coastline and countryside of North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park.

Tucked away behind the old chapel, this charming holiday home is perfect for couples, friends who holiday together, and families who are looking for something a little different!

Hen Ffestri, which is the old vestry in Welsh, has been designed with shabby chic, industrial and French influences and an interior which is sure to wow you and definitely not disappoint.

Upon entering you will walk into a small hallway with an Alice in Wonderland themed area.

You then walk through to a grand open plan sitting room with a high ceiling and a bespoke industrial chandelier made from old wood and metal crates with the dining area hosting a long pine table and room for everyone, with a Westminster clock located above which lights up in the evening for a glowing atmosphere.

With your own coach front bar area, this is a wonderfully entertaining area for everyone to gather together and share those holiday memories or plan the next day’s activities with a glass of wine.

The kitchen is handcrafted with a central island and all worktops are Blue Stone Marble, including the double sink, as well as a large Smeg range cooker.

Also on the ground floor is the large family bathroom featuring a freestanding double-ended bath, a monsoon shower and a shabby chic unit with a basin.

Each bedroom has been carefully styled and themed with the industrial bedroom on the ground floor featuring twin beds, brick wallpaper and industrial furnishings.

Opposite, the library room features book wallpaper and wonderful furnishings with a king-size bed.

Access to the mezzanine landing is via a beautifully-crafted, split-level double stairwell and once upstairs you’ll find interesting views through the vestry.

There are a further two bedrooms located off the landing, one features a French Chateau double bed and opposite a shabby chic double room.

At the opposite end of the landing is the Harry Potter themed mezzanine sitting area, a great place for the children to watch their favourite film or play one of the many board games available.

Hen Ffestri has its own enclosed outdoor space with a small lawn and slated patio with tables and chairs, ideal for alfresco dining or for simply relaxing and enjoying an evening of wining and dining whilst sharing memories of the day.

To the other side of the property is a small enclosed patio with a gate which leads to the parking area which accommodates two cars behind a gated entrance.

If you can bear to drag yourself away from this beautiful place and venture out for the day, there is so much to see and do in the area.

The world-famous Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion, which is also home to The Festival Number 6, is a short drive away.

The lovely harbour town of Porthmadog, home to the Ffestiniog Steam Railway, is less than three miles away, whilst a little further afield are Criccieth and Harlech Castles.

Magnificent beaches are within easy reach, as well as the Snowdonia National Park which is just waiting to be explored.

Blaenau Ffestiniog is a 20 minute drive with Llechwedd slate caverns, Zip World Titan, the longest 4-man zip in Europe, Bounce Below, an underground trampoline and Zip World Caverns all located here.

Whether you are looking for a quiet holiday with walks along the beach or something a little more adventurous, this cottage provides a great base any time of the year and is somewhere you will want to return to time and time again.
