The people have put a lot of effort into this property (there is a dvd with pictures of the work) it has been done to a high spec as well. I met the land lady and she is a very friendly and helpful person.
The propery is open and spactious upstairs with most the bedrooms down stairs. he views are stunnign and breath taking with a view of snowdonia from the front door (weather dependent)
Only down side was the internet in the area is shocking 200k but there just waiting for bt to install fiber in the area so once that is done the property would be perfect.

"WOW!" every one of us used that word on entering. It is perfect for a large group, very communal with it's open plan living area & huge table that seated all 16 of us together plus two toddlers. Plenty to do in the area & a brilliant café nearby too ( though a group of walkers thought we were the café & sat down ready to order on our outside table!). We never tired of taking in the stunning views from the Chapel windows too.
The biggest downside was the lack of mirrors, sounds petty but with a large number of females staying it did prove a real issue! None at all in most bedrooms so all of us formed regular queues outside the three bedrooms that had them so we could do makeup & hair! Seemed so strange to of thought to of put a small shelf under a mirror with a plug in these rooms ( ideal for straighteners )& yet they didn't bother to even put just a mirror in all the others, yes there were mirrors in the bathrooms but these steamed up and couldn't use electrical items near them. One big communicable full length mirror in the hallway would be good too, not a single one of those to be had anywhere! Perhaps vampires own this property???
The showers were fantastic but an addition of caddies to hold soap & shampoo in them would be useful. The hot water ran out sometimes but there were a lot of us having showers at the same time so to be expected.
Dishwasher is a nightmare as rack falls off the bottom runners when full, despite, earlier reviews telling them this, owners have still not repaired it , drove us all mad!
Seems sad to complain about these things as the property is gorgeous and the owners have put lots of thoughtful additions into it, like the toys and toddler kitchen. It is spotless and kitchen is well equipped. But if they put the above problems to rights it would be perfect!!! We would come again and recommend it highly (already have done and friends are booking it ) but would tell people to take mirrors and extension cables which really you shouldn't have to do.
We never got to use the gorgeous looking fire, we had fantastic weather!
A group of friends recently stayed here. What a gorgeous setting, beautifully renovated Chapel.
Sauna, games room, lounge had stunning views out over Snowdon. Plenty of room for 16 people. The bedrooms with their ensuite bathrooms had very comfy beds and soft bedding.
Location although very rural, was fine. It was easy to visit surrounding towns, plus some great walking areas too!
I'd love to stay here again some day.
There was just one niggle, it's a shame to even mention it, but the dishwasher was a nightmare, the bottom rack wouldn't slide into the washer, even only lightly loaded. It's something that needs repairing as when there's a big group staying, it really is needed.
On the plus side the kitchen had everything else you needed.
It is with great reluctance that we post a review on this holiday rental for fear of not being able to book this again because we know how popular it will become. This is really a very special place - clean, beautiful and lovely. We stayed just for a short time and we're all mortified to leave. It offers such an amazing space with plenty of lovely bedrooms all with really comfortable duvets and pillows and such comfortable beds too- the en suite shower rooms for each of the rooms downstairs are wonderful and we all had hot water in wet room style showers. It also has a sauna which is wonderful to use when you have been out walking all day. Washing facilities were great too. The dining room boasts an amazing table which fits everyone and the kitchen comes fully equipped with everything- even a fantastic coffee machine. The lounge also fits everyone in, around a log burner that sadly we didn't get chance to use as we were lucky to have good weather- we would definitely recommend it to anyone and look forward to going back with our dog Charlie in tow very soon.... But Shhhh don't tell anyone
