Holiday Rental House
Ancient and modern stylishly combine in this self catering property set within a 19th century church in the mountain village of Capel Curig. Where else can you sleep beneath a carved stone pulpit, enjoy a hot tub under the stars or play table tennis beneath a fabulous 19th century mosaic ceiling? And all with lovely views of Snowdonia’s mountains from every window… This was the vision Alice Douglas had when she first came to the village twenty years ago and decided to make the church the most wonderful place for visitors to Snowdonia.

And all with lovely views of Snowdonia’s mountains from every window… This was the vision Alice Douglas had when she first came to the village twenty years ago and decided to make the church the most wonderful place for visitors to Snowdonia. St Curig's Mountain Church is a holiday rental for families, friends and groups celebrating an important occasion. The church sleeps 14 in 6 bedrooms and also has a sofa bed if you'd like to squeeze an extra few people in. The Church is a very unique house and the perfect venue for a special occasion. There are four stylishly designed, comfortably sized, en suite rooms, two with hand-carved four-poster beds and two twin rooms. The property also has another twin room and a basic bunkroom with four beds, which is a favourite with teenagers or mountaineers and has wonderful view towards the Carneddau Mountains. The church also has a sofa bed in the main lounge and two trundle beds for larger groups. The kitchen is on the mezzanine level giving a bird’s eye view of the glittering mosaic ceiling in the apse. It is very well equipped and has a large oven, American fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is a washing machine, drying room and plenty of boot storage. The property has a hot tub in the garden with views of the Snowdon Horseshoe, the most photographed spot in Wales. It has a zip wire, pool table, grand piano, guitar, table tennis, dressing up box and various board games. The property has a stable which can be used for storing bikes, kayaks or horses. It’s probably true to say that there’s nowhere else quite like St Curig’s in North Wales. The story of the conversion, a rollercoaster ride through planning regulations, builders and love affairs was described in Alice’s fortnightly Sunday Times column. If you'd like to eat out then the village of Capel Curig has two fantastic pubs serving meals in easy walking distance and there are good restaurants within a 20-minute drive. The nearest pub the Bryn Tyrch Inn also provides a take away menu or large trays of pre-cooked meals for guests staying at the church. We also have a list of chefs who can be booked if desired. More

The deconsecrated church is immensely historic and tastefully resdesigned with a warm and comfortable interior- set amongst soaring mountain peaks of beautiful Sniwdonia.

About the neighbourhood
Snowdonia is a haven for adrenalin junkies. We have some great activities like Go Below a caving challenge which is a full and incredibly exhilarating day (the extreme is awesome). The fastest zip wire in the world is only about 6 miles away and can be booked through Zip World (make sure it’s the one near us). Another new attraction is Surf Snowdonia and also Bounce Below is good fun, it has huge trampolines inside underground caverns. We obviously also have climbing, hiking, fishing, kayaking, horse riding, canyoning etc…. If any of these things sound interesting then I can send you links to the right websites. Plas y Brenin is only about 200 meters away and they do taster days which include kayaking and climbing etc..
