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, 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 fast 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). The second floor also has a bathroom with bath, basin and WC. 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.

For lovers of the outdoors you are spoilt for choice! Explore the quieter local Moelwyn mountains where former slate mining villages can be investigated and rivers swum in or head into the main mountains of the Snowdonia National Park for lakeside strolls or mountain walking and climbing up the highest peaks. This is a superb area for mountain biking with local downhill trails at Antur Stiniog and further trails for all abilities at Trawsfynydd, Coed-y-Brenin, Betws-y-Coed and Penmachno, not to mention superb cross country trails to explore. There are nearby golf courses and fishing, water sports on the local lakes and rivers and many local companies offering day activities.
For adrenaline junkies there is Zip World zip wires and Bounce Below underground trampolines, for young and old alike, a great wet weather activity. New to the area is Surf Snowdonia a manmade surf centre complete with fun splash zone for the kids.
Away from activities, the Ffestiniog Railway follows a scenic route into Porthmadog, the Lechwedd slate mines offer underground tours, and the famous Italiante village of Porthmeirion is close by and spectacular throughout the year. Also a visit to the pretty village of Criccieth and the picturesque castle is a must.
The beaches at Black rock sands and Borth-y-Gest are stunning and good for water sports. From here you can access the Lleyn Peninsula with further beaches and coastal villages.
