To the south of the stunning Snowdonia National Park is the quaint village of Llwyngwril. In the centre of the village sits this marvellous blue chapel. Once a Methodist place of worship and then an antique centre, this truly unique accommodation was renovated in the summer of 2020 making the most of its original gorgeous gothic features. With its stellar location, numerous unique features, Moroccan courtyard, and magnificent views of both mountain and sea, The Blue Chapel promises to be a getaway like no other.
Both original chapel and gothic revival features can be found throughout the property. This includes stone staircases, artisanal wood carvings, ornate ceilings, arched windows, striking fireplaces, and even an organ gallery. The Chapel can accommodate up to eight people across three ground floor bedrooms: one king size, one double, and one containing four bunk beds. The bathrooms contain a charming combination of modern facilities and traditional fixtures. Walk up the ornate staircase to the first floor to reach the open-planned living area. This contains comfy sofas and a dining table for eight, and is illuminated during the day by virtue of the skylight windows. On the same floor is the well-equipped kitchen filled with high spec appliances and the balcony which provides arresting views of the mountains to the east and Irish sea to the west. The chapel also has its very own vibrant courtyard - with outdoor seating - inspired by the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech, Morocco.
The village of Llwyngwril benefits from overlooking Cardigan Bay, one of the top dolphin spotting spots in Europe. Its stunning location provides access to an array of lovely beaches and coastline vistas. Further afield, the area is replete with things to see and do, whether it's charming towns, quaint villages, local shopping, steam train travel, or various outdoor sports and activities, there is something for everyone. The area is very popular with walkers and cyclists, and there are hundreds of gorgeous trails to trek and bike along. The Chapel is nestled on the southern tip of Snowdonia National Park, containing the highest peaks in the UK outside of Scotland, making it the perfect base from which to explore. If you don't mind a bit of a drive, the highest mountain in Wales - Snowdon - is 40-miles to the north. Trust us, it is certainly worth the trip.

Had an absolutely lovely stay, it’s such a unique and special place, yet is also homely and relaxing. It was very clean and warm and has all the things you need for a wonderful holiday. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and there is a big table for family meals. The view from the balcony is really delightful and there is a romantic courtyard garden. The location is in a pretty village with plenty of nice walks and is very tranquil. The hosts were very responsive and helpful and left a nice hamper of fresh eggs, milk, welsh cakes, local bread and Welsh butter.

We had a wonderful week staying in The Chapel. It is a stunning, unusual refurbishment which is entertaining in itself, but it’s also cozy and comfortable to relax in (all day if for any reason you don’t fancy going outside). The little balcony has a lovely view towards the sea, and you’re able to sit sheltered from the wind, even on a breezy day, while enjoying the clean fresh sea air. On a sunny day the balcony is quite a sun trap and it was lovely to watch the sun set over the sea from it. The galley kitchen is very well appointed and we made most of our evening meals there. (However the pub just a few footsteps away was also very welcoming and served good food) For those not familiar with the area, there are several small towns worth visiting , as well as beautiful beaches and the stunning Welsh landscape to walk in and enjoy. Recommended without hesitation.

We spent two nights at the chapel and wished we could have stayed longer! The location is within a steady stroll to both the pub and the beach. The Chapel itself is just right! it offers the character that a building like this should, whilst offering modern appliances and newly renovated bathrooms. Very homely feeling! I would defiantly recommend for either a couple or a group. There’s lots of space! The only down/upside to the chapel is that it’s rural. The village is quiet but filled with friendly people. This was fine for us as we already had plans within driving distance. If you wanting a meal out of anything you will have to drive. But come on.. it’s a converted Church! Also thank you to Simon & Richard who's customer service throughout was perfect!

Truly beautiful stay with all the extras you do not need to bring anything other than food but it is worth eating in the local pub which is 10 steps away. I definitely will book again very peaceful.
