Description

Capel Mawr is an impressive and stunning apartment forming part of a converted chapel in the centre of the village of Llanrug, which is situated in the foothills of the Snowdonia Mountain Range, only three miles from Llanberis. This stunning property is perfect if youre looking for something a little bit different, somewhere to celebrate that special birthday or anniversary perhaps? Or just a great base to get together with friends and family to discover and experience the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, stunning mountains and scenery and the superb coastlines this area has to offer. This magnificent property has an elegant ground floor entrance with two large glazed double doors opening into the entrance vestibule which immediately gives you the feeling of space. The two original staircases sweeping to the left and right, one of which leads up to the magnificent first floor apartment, and is just a taster of whats to come! Upstairs the unique circular open plan living area is immense and naturally divided into three areas, a wonderful sitting area, kitchen area and a dining area on a mezzanine platform, this is a wonderful space for socialising. Capel Mawr has been lovingly restored by its current owner, and has been a true labour of love with so many original features and attributes skilfully restored with other parts of the chapel being adapted to form integral parts of the property. You are immediately drawn to the beautiful ceiling painted in pastel shades to emphasise the ornate coved ceiling with central roses and cornices, all enhanced with spot lighting. The sitting area is so relaxing and comfortable, perfect for chilling out after a long day walking on the mountains. The dining area, on a raised exposed timber mezzanine provides the perfect place for a more formal dining experience and is dominated by a massive circular window, and to the left and right hand side of the dining area a small flight of stairs lead down to a lower, more discreet seating area providing a nice little hideaway for you to enjoy some quiet time to reflect. The kitchen area is very much in keeping with the original building where further parts of the chapel have been utilised to create a bespoke kitchen. Everything you could possibly need is catered for and the large pitch pine island and breakfast bar with stools provides a less formal place to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or late supper over a bottle of wine and reminisce over the days adventures. Three spacious bedrooms, two double rooms and a twin room, plus the family bathroom all radiate off the living accommodation. Each bedroom is tastefully furnished and individually styled and all feature the original arched windows. The main bedroom benefits from having a feature sink in a carved ornate surround and a double door leads through to a dressing room with full length wardrobes and a sofa bed, lending a little more flexibility to the sleeping arrangements and accommodation. The bathroom is beautifully appointed with a modern roll-top bath on clawed feet, perfect for a long relaxing soak after a long day out walking; nothing like it to ease away those aches, there is a separate shower cubicle and washbasin inset into the original chapel pulpit. Outside there is a crushed gravel area providing parking for 3 cars and a raised decked seating area and summerhouse, ideal for sitting out after a busy day and relaxing with a glass of something chilled. Just a short stroll from this apartment are two village pubs, both serve meals and there are walks in abundance. Llanberis is just three miles away and offers an array of shops, Electric Mountain which is well worth a visit, plus there are numerous watersports on the lake, as well as it being one of the main starting points for hiking up to the summit of Snowdon. Fancy something a little less strenuous then take the train instead, or jump on the narrow gauge steam railway that runs the length of Llyn Padarn and enjoy a five-mile return trip taking in some wonderful scenery on the way. Slightly further afield, why not visit the town of Caernarfon with its historic and majestic castle and the Isle of Anglesey is just waiting to be discovered? Whatever you fancy doing there is something for everyone and Capel Mawr provides a wonderful base from which to explore from and is a very special place to spend some quality time with friends and family. This beautiful property will have you wanting to return time and time again.
Situated in the foothills of the Snowdonia Mountain Range, Llanrug is a small village with two pubs and a shop just three miles from the famous town of Llanberis. Popular amongst walkers, this tranquil settlement is set beneath the Snowdon Massif and flanked by the Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris lakes. As one of the most popular mountain tourist centres in the Snowdonia National Park, Llanberis is an ideal spot for walkers and climbers to gather, particularly during the annual Snowdon marathon. For the less energetic holidaymaker, trains travel to the summit at regular intervals giving those unable to climb to the peak a chance to enjoy the incredible views. Back in the town itself there are a number of excellent places to eat and drink as well as a great choice of shops.

‘Beautiful conversion with a luxurious hotel feel, loads of space and areas to sit to eat or to play games or just relax. Close to many nice places but Llanrug is by no means a tourist village so the property really stands out and you feel a little like an imposter at times. Luckily the coach park opposite was quite due to covid restrictions too! The locals in the pub were very friendly and helpful, the local shop owners less so! Shame this apartment does not have access to the seating area outside as it is reserved for the downstairs apartment. There is a table in the gravelled car park but it is surrounded by building materials which is a shame as it is actually a sun trap in the afternoon! Loads of great things to do relatively locally including horse riding or water sports. We hired a guide from the local activity centre for the day and went kayaking and Coasteering. No noise could be heard from the 2 families below but they could clearly hear us which was awkward as it rather puts a curfew on things if they have young families or like an early night! A spare key would be good as the shared property entrance is on a deadlock and the key safe outside the door meaning we couldn’t leave the kids in alone if we took a key as they wouldn’t have been able to get out! Pretty risky to be honest! The owner said he was too far away to bring us one too and to just leave the door open but the other guests locked it as they had small children rightly!’

‘Had a great week at Capel Mawr. What a beautiful conversion of the upper floor of the chapel. There was plenty of space for us all. Everything was clean and tidy and everything worked as it should. Large kitchen area with large range cooker, american fridge/freezer, dishwasher etc. made it easy to cater for our clan. The owner was very helpful and went out of his way to make sure that our stay was a very pleasurable one. We will be back.’

‘A beautiful, spacious and clean property to stay in. The chapel is comfortable, warm and unique. The owner was welcoming and well informed about where to visit. It will be hard to find such an impressive property to rent for future holidays.’

‘As I drove up to the property I was expecting to see the beautiful structure that is shown in the pictures, what I actually got was a structure surrounded by scaffolding. On entering the property it was clean and tidy, but the promise of using an american fridge did not happen as it was not working, there is a medium sized fridge freezer tucked away on the left of the kitchen area looking on from the doorway in, some of the sockets did not look secure, as they where loose or had gaps at the back. The views where not there due to the scaffolding. I felt very let down and disapointed. I rang sykes the following day and they moved me to another holiday accomadation. The owner had been contacted and he offered me a miniscule reduction for the lose of the view, I felt insulted by the offer. The property I went on to was much better.’

‘Three friends and I have just returned from a weeks' holiday at this stunning apartment. Yes it is an old building, and, in places, the walls are not as smooth as a modern building, but this is only to be expected.... yes, there is a door that probably does link the apartment to the owners ' own property, but at the top of the stairs is your own front door, which is secured with your own key. We had a lovely, relaxed week, visiting Llanberis, Llandudno, Betws-y-Coed, Electric Mountain and Anglesey. We found the apartment to be well furnished and had all that you could want or need for a comfortable holiday, in a very spacious apartment. We would highly recommend this apartment, but maybe not for young families, as there is no outside space for children to play...’

‘Myself and two friends booked this cottage for the entire of Christmas. The building is beautiful and has tons of character, which original wood work. We cooked Christmas dinner and sat at a beautiful table over looking original windows. Dez, the property owner lives in the outhouse away from the property and we had the entire property to ourselves the entire stay. He is very friendly and you hardly know he's there. He talked about renovation of the building and that he's kept as much of the original features as possible. The whole stay was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone who likes character and a beautiful converted building.’

‘This is a fairly long story but I'll try and keep it as short as I can. Firstly this holiday let has it's own grave yard, if this doesn't bother you, try this. As you walk through the front door, to the left is a secret door that leads to the owners section of the building. It doesn't look like a door and cannot be locked from the accomodation side. The owner can and does come and go as he pleases. We didn't realise it was a door until we had to involve the police. Also, as I experienced first hand, the owner leaves the premises unoccupied with candles burning in his half of the building. Not very safety conscious! My son booked this let in rather a hurry and inadvertantly booked for 4 adults and 2 children, there was infact 6 adults and 2 infants one aged 2 years & one aged 10months. This shouldn't have made any difference so we weren't unduely worried. However on the Tuesday the owner decided this was over booked. My son offered to pay more, but on return from a day out at 7pm in the evening on the Wednesday the owner had entered the accomodation internally and wedged something in the key hole locking us out. He wouldn't answer his phone. Sykes cottages informed my son that the owner would open the door in the morning and may give access to the belongings locked inside. This included nappies and baby food. What kind of person throws families with infants out into the night without warning? The police were called who eventually got us into the building. This was 8.30 in the evening. It cost us in total another £645 for hotel accomodation (and we were lucky to find this) and our holiday cut short by 1 night. He has refused to give any refund. Avoid.’

‘Totally unreasonable landlord which led to events involving the police. He has a discreet internal door from his hidden residence underneath directly into your living area. He likes to let himself in when you're not home as we discovered. The place looks lovely and it is but stay somewhere else, it's not worth the hassle.’
