The Chapel House is a unique Victorian building adjoining what was originally the local Methodist chapel. This large holiday house has been restored to provide generous group/family accommodation, with a relaxed feel, in the Snowdonia National Park. The property has lots of original features including stripped pine doors, slate floors, wooden floorboards and pretty fireplaces. Llan Ffestiniog is a great place from which to explore the area with the attractions of Blaenau Ffestioniog; such as the famous Zip World zip wires and Bounce below underground trampolines; the Ffestioniog Railway and Antur Stiniog mountain biking centre, only 3 miles away. The beaches at Porthmadog are 10 miles away and Betws-y-Coed 14 miles.
The lounge has a log-effect stove in the fireplace, leather sofas and a large TV with Sky HD package including movies/ DVD player/ CD player and superfast WiFi. The dining room seats eight around a table, with the original chapel pew seating, and the large kitchen is equipped with a gas range and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine/dryer, slate flooring (please note AGA in photos is not operational). On the first floor are two bedrooms - a kingsize bedroom and a twin, both with feature fireplaces (not functioning) and a large bathroom with bath, separate shower, basin and WC. On the top floor is a family suite with a kingsize bed and two single day beds. This open plan room also has a leather sofa and TV with Xbox (bring your own games). This second floor also has a bathroom with bath, basin and WC. The Chapel House enjoys lovely open views to the front and is set well back from the road. The large lawned front garden has a pond (children to be supervised at all times) and a small front terrace with a bench table. There is plenty of parking available.
This area has a rich industrial heritage from the slate quarries with fantastic walking locally in the Moelwyn Mountains. There are rivers to swim in and interesting quarry workings and buildings to explore. The Italianate village of Portmeirion is close by and the stunning beaches at Borth-y-Gest and Black Rock sands near Porthmadog. The pretty village of Betws-y-Coed gives access to the popular mountains and lakes of the national park.

Situated in the heart of Snowdonia this large holiday home is ideal for exploring mountains and coast alike. Take the nearby Ffestiniog narrow gauge railway to the coast at Porthmadog and enjoy a tour of the underground slate caverns. Local activities include walking, climbing and horse riding. And the mountain bike track at Antor Stiniog is amazing. Slightly further afield you can relax in pretty Betws-y-Coed or perhaps enjoy a little fishing, golf and bird watching. Popular beaches at Black Rocks Sands near Porthmadog and of course Criccieth.
