A fantastic church converted to a B&B.

It’s fair to say you’ve probably never stayed anywhere quite like St Curig’s. The church was deconsecrated in 1992 and taken over and converted by current owner Alice Douglas, and results of her labours are an astounding blend of modern style and religious heritage, with the added bonus of an outdoor hot tub among the tombstones in the garden. The views from it over Snowdonia’s mountains are incredible, and you’ll also get a good view of Brecon – not the famous Welsh town but the family dog of course. They don’t charge anything extra for dogs and have fantastic walks directly from the church, both in the mountains and the nearby forest. There's a well-equipped kitchen on the mezzanine level, and a dining room and lounge area in the former apse, which features stained glass windows and an impressive mosaic ceiling and provides a fantastically atmospheric environment for tinkling the keys on the grand piano or an impromptu game of pool; there's also a guitar, table tennis and plenty of books and board games. 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 a drying room with a washing machine and plenty of boot storage and a stable which can be used for storing bikes or kayaks,  and this becomes, hands down, one of the best self-catering places to stay in North Wales.
