  • Dogs welcome
  • Hot Tub
  • Walking
There are four modern en suite rooms to choose from – two double rooms with hand carved four poster beds and two twin rooms. All the rooms come with a TV, hospitality trays and underfloor heating for when it's cold. There's also a double room with a shared bathroom along with a bunk room which sleeps four and has its own bathroom.  Drying facilities are available for wet boots and clothes.  

It's fair to say you've probably never stayed in a B&B quite like St Curig's. The church was deconsecrated in 1992 and taken over by current owner Alice Douglas.  Needless to say, the conversion was a roller-coaster ride riddled with planning permission dramas and builder nightmares, but the results of her labour are astounding. The style and modern touches to the rooms juxtaposed against the history and grandeur of the church's exterior is breathtaking.  The added bonus of an outdoor hot tub couldn't be further from the more traditional tombstones expected in the church gardens, but the views from it overlooking Snowdonia's mountains are incredible.  You'll also get a good view of Brecon – not the famous Welsh town – but the family dog of course.  The dining room and communal lounge area is located in the former apse, which features stain glass windows and an impressive mosaic ceiling.  It provides a fantastically atmospheric environment for swapping stories with fellow guests, a game of pool, or a pinball championship. But although these are all perfect activities for a rainy day, the real reason people come here, is to explore the phenomenal beauty of hiker's paradise, Capel Curig. Throw in the daddy of Welsh breakfasts and this becomes, hands down, one of the best places to stay in North Wales.

Getting There

From the north, take the M56 and then onto the A55 North Wales Freeway until reaching the Betws-y-Coed turn off exit. Take A470 to Betws-y-Coed
take A5 through Betws for about 5 miles and on entering Capel Curig 
the B&B is at the western end of the village on the A5 opposite the A4086 junction. From the south, various options are available whether or not time is a factor - the scenic route is to follow the A5 from Chirk through LLangollen to Betws-y-Coed and on to Capel Curig.  It can be quicker leaving the M6 at junction 16 and then via Nantwich and Tarporley to get on to the A55 near Chester and follow the "northern" route above.
