Capel Maentwrog is a wonderful piece of the North Wales’ history. An early 19th century Calvinistic Chapel, used for over 150 years as a place of worship, the chapel was very popular with local residents and a lot of wedding ceremonies took place here. The building started deteriorating in the 1980’s and was completely derelict by the early 2000. The only salvaged piece of internal decoration is the now the white painted, mahogany ceiling rose, which enhances the beauty of the nine metres high lounge. The full reconstruction began in January 2002 and was completed by May 2005. During the 41 month project, the chapel was stripped to its stone shell, which was then reinforced, underpinned and insulated.

A new roof was constructed and tiled. New floors were created and a custom-made staircase now unites the three levels. Once a rectangular, open plan building with a suspended ceiling rose, the chapel now has a variety of luxurious rooms: bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, utility etc.

, all of which are kept snug and warm using an under-floor heating system. To preserve the feeling of airiness and lightness, as well as the building’s good acoustics, the front of the property has been left open plan in a mezzanine format. There are two suspended landings on the first and second floors, each of which commands magnificent views over the valley and the surrounding mountains.

In the latter stages of the project, all the groundwork was prepared and new stonewalls erected. The area around the building was covered with paving slabs and new fire escape was added. The main and side gates are hand made and incorporate pieces of the original railing. Polished slate floors. Underfloor heating. Open mezzanine living room. Excellent parking. Linen etc., provided. 20% discount on rates given below for one/two bedroom (of four) usage (excl Christmas/New Year). Early bookings discount also available.

  • Date of Stay: Oct 2011
We were all looking forward to our stay at CAPEL MAENTWROG,and
we were not disappointed,(we being four married couples all 60 years of age or over).
On first sight the property is breathtaking,and the interior is just out of this world.It was very clean and very well maintained with top notch fixtures and fittings,everything you need for a firstclass holiday,and we
all recommend it very highly.
They are two pubs/restaurants withing a very short walk,and both are very friendly with great ale and food.The area is just great for touring
and sight seeing.A fantastic" all in" area.
We as a group visit North Wales around four times a year and are
certainly going to visit CHAPEL MAENTWROG again and again.
Many thanks to every one concerned.

Porthmadog is a short drive away, where the Ffestiniog Railway can be found. Portmerion - where the TV series, The Prisoner, was filmed, is just a few miles up the road. The village of Maentwrog - where the Chapel is located - is well-sited for the North and South of the Lleyn Pennisula. If the weather is bad on one side, it's almost certainly good on the other.

TIP - call the tourist board office in Llandudno and Portmadog/Criccieth for a weather check, and decide which side of the penisula to visit! The Chapel is around 60 minutes away from Holyhead - thanks to the A55 - which means a day trip on the ferry to Ireland is possible. En-route to Holyhead is the beauty of Angelsey, where you can find a diverse range of family attractions such as the village of Beaumaris, a shark aquarium and a butterfly farm.
