Ancient and modern stylishly combine in this beautiful Church in Snowdonia

Bedrooms 6
Property type chateau / country house


About the property

A beautiful church set in the mountains.

It’s probably true to say that there’s nowhere else quite like St Curig’s in North Wales. Ancient and modern stylishly combine in this beautiful home 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 convert the church into her home. The story of the conversion, a rollercoaster ride through planning regulations, builders and love affairs was described in Alice’s fortnightly Sunday Times column.

We have lots of amazing things to do nearby so let me know if you’d like any help with activities. My favorites are the Go Below caving challenge which is a full and incredibly exhilarating day. 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 which 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, climbing and either skiing or mountain biking. If you want to climb mountains then let me know if you need descriptions of routes and difficulty.
