Outside there is off road parking for eight cars and front seating with country views and a rear patio with furniture and a barbecue. Capel Dinorwig is a wonderful base for your holiday to Wales.

Llanberis sits at the foot of Mount Snowdon and is renowned as a base from which walkers, climbers, mountain-bikers and even rail-passengers can explore the wonder of this ancient mountain. Llanberis has grown since Victorian times, in conjunction with one of the two lakes that sandwich it, Llyn Padarn. Llanberis was a slate mining town and quarried slate from the mountain across the lake itself. Now, the redundant slate quarries merge with the surrounding lakes and forests to provide something of interest for all, whatever the weather. The 800-acre Padarn Country Park is the perfect place to explore what the countryside and the local heritage have to offer, including two sites of Special Scientific Interest, a local nature reserve and a wide range of water-sports. If that isn't enough for you, you can always ascend the heights by taking the Snowdon Mountain Railway, see the Ceunant Mawr Waterfall and visit First Hydro's Electric Mountain.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Air source heat pump central heating with underfloor heating, rainwater harvest facility, heat recovery system and woodburner.

The converted chapel was stunningly beautiful as were the views through the arch windows. The games room and sauna were both well used and the overall spacious accommodation meant that everyone could totally relax and chill out. It was a wonderful holiday for us all.

Capel Dinorwig is an amazing, open-plan living space with beautiful interior throughout with spectacular views!

We found the cottage to be spacious and open plan. Each of the bedrooms had its own bathroom and very comfortable beds. We also found the addition of a drinks fridge a wonderful bonus.

Capel Dinorwig was a beautiful house, with ample space for large families and groups of friends. Very well equipped with everything you could require.

It is a credit to the owner, there is nothing you could fault about this place. We really didn't want to leave it, it had everything and more. The whole design works wonderfully. We will definitely be coming back.

Loved the location, the modern decor and high spec items (TV/audio/sauna etc.). Old school with a modern twist. Definitely will come back again with a large group. Also perfect for getting to the mountains and also the towns whilst feeling a sense of isolation. Amazing place!

I booked this amazing property for my husbands 60th surprise. The standard is superb, the owners have thought of everything. There were gorgeous personal details, quality bedding, towels and high tech equipment. In a wonderful location with stunning views and walks. This is a glorious property which has left my husband and l with fabulous memories. We absolutely adored this chapel.

We feel that we don't want to tell everyone how lovely this place is, for fear that we will not be able to book again, once the secret is out - it is truly a lovely place. Clean, neat and perfect for families.

A stunning location, dramatic scenery and so many local walks from property. A perfect base for sightseeing. The owners were really friendly and helpful. It was a beautiful property, a really sociable space. The beds and duvets were amazingly comfortable.

This is a fabulous property but after a long hard walk in Snowdonia I want a hot shower! Sorry but hot water is a must! The first night I had to boil a kettle for a strip wash and the second day even though I was one of the first of our party to take a shower it wasn't hot.

We had a wonderful family holiday at Capel Dinorwig, 3 children, 3 teenagers and 7 adults all had a lovely break. Walks in Snowdonia, trips to some of the Zip World sites, the Slate museum and Caernarfon Castle all with a warm, clean and comfortable base to return to. Would highly recommend :)

My daughter found this for us when she was staying over one weekend and we had been looking for a place to have a family and friends get-together for ages.. it was perfect! The interior of the building is architecturally very pleasing - a converted chapel with light pouring in to the living spaces from long windows that all the children in our party were utterly drawn to - they sat on the wide window sills reading, playing, just looking out at the mountains., even the 3 year old. The bedrooms are lovely; supercomfy beds, walk in showers, lots of hot water. The living spaces are well equipped for big gatherings with comfortable and sociable seating areas and long tables both inside and out for a good Viking feast , should you want one, and the kitchen is excellently equipped- we did lots of cooking and everything we needed was there -even a balloon whisk (which I needed to make a sauce on the first night and thought, will there be one? -and there it was!) This is also a big enough place for peopel not to be all in the same place at the same time - there is a games room and other space to sit quietly if you want. Looking out of the windows was one of my pleasures, every day - you can see Snowdon and you can take a lot of great walks direct from the Capel. There is a disused slate quarry (with 'Electric Mountain' underneath) round which you can take a walk just 15 minutes stroll away. We also walked down to Llanberis through the country park (bussed it back to the previous village, Deiniolen and walked the last mile to the Capel, getting fab views) but there are buses right the way back if you time it right. There is also a little playground a short walk away which the 3 year old loved. My son in law said it was probably the best view in the world for pushing a swing. This is a very special place, and Caroline, the owner, has clearly made so much effort to make great holidays for her guests (so many thoughtful touches) - several of us said we would like to stay there forever, it was so lovely. It's perfect in itself, but also well located for trips out, if you can tear yourself away- we went to Beddgelert and Portmeirion, both of which are quite easy distances. Highly recommended.

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

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.

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.

The property was fantastic and the views were out of this world. There was plenty of everything, even a sauna. I feel very lucky to have stayed in such a beautiful house in a beautiful place. We didn't want to leave!
