A beautifully converted chapel In the heart of Llanberis within easy reach of Snowdon

Dolbadarn at Capel Bethel is a holiday house steeped in history and situated in the heart of Llanberis. Restored to the glory it deserves, for those who are prone to emotions, you are forewarned as they will run high! This light-filled Snowdonia chapel grabs at your heartstrings and makes them sing.

Sleeping six, Dolbadarn imbues a true feeling of relaxation. Heading up the magnificent stairs, bathing in the light from the stained glass window, guests are treated to an enormous open plan living area with views across to the Snowdonia mountains all should explore.

Cooks will delight at the ease of space and joy of chatting to others as huge feasts for all are created. Reach into the wine fridge to replenish and charge your glasses for celebrate you will. Appetites will be enormous with fresh mountain air aplenty. Large sofas welcome exhausted explorers at the end of the day.

Capel Bethel Dolbadarn sleeps six. There are three comfortable bedrooms to choose from - a king with ensuite, a double and a twin room, that becomes a super king upon request. With a family bathroom too, three couples can holiday together for mountain climbs and culinary delights. Families will flourish here too and for those who wish to holiday with others, then Padarn next door sleeps a further eight.

This chapel is called Dolbadarn after the historic castle on the shores of Llyn Padarn. Next door, but part of the original chapel building, sits the meeting house called Padarn, named after the beautiful lake that is within sight of the chapel. Every part of Capel Bethel has been renovated beyond all expectations - sleeping six and eight, so 14 in total, as easy as can be. With private parking for this dog-friendly chapel and a small outside seating area, should you wish to sit quietly, a happier base will be hard to find.

Climb the mountains of Snowdonia unguided or arrange a tour to gain experience. Visit Zip World and zip along the fastest zip line in the world. Velocity is an understatement, and Velocity 2 ensures unforgettable memories as you travel at speeds of over 100mph with breathtaking views surrounding you. Or Bounce Below in an incredible world of coloured lights and nets stretched across a disused mine - an experience that will make your mouths open in amazement.

Discover the local history surrounding Llanberis - hike out into the mountains and explore the lakes and secret beaches. Swim, climb, run, bike, paddle, walk, hike - the adrenaline rush is yours to choose.

Book a unique SUP nighttime adventure with Psyched Paddleboarding and let Sian and her team introduce you to this wonderful experience. Snowdonia National Park was awarded Dark Sky Status in 2015 - only 11 have been awarded in the world and this one is on your doorstep!

Once back from the day's activities, and ready to ignore the calorie count after an active day, those who would rather dine out will find plenty of inviting places to choose from, all within an easy stroll. Book in advance and dine at The Peak, the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming and the food is beyond compare using seasonal local produce aplenty.

If you are lucky enough to arrive when Mafon is holding her monthly dinner night, then book quickly. Failing that, a visit to her cafe during the day will not disappoint. Lunches to linger over, cakes to walk that extra mile for and coffee to restore even the most tired of souls.

Prefer to stay in and linger over the beauty of the chapel? Catering at Dolbadarn can be arranged easily and comes highly recommended by many.

Before your day starts in earnest, pile it high breakfasts at Pete's Eats, and incredible experiences shared by those who have explored Snowdonia before will bring smiles to all who venture in.

Stop at the dog-friendly Penceunant Isaf, a Snowdon cafe, on the Snowdon Path and time will be given to help you find the best routes while you warm yourself by the fire. Dogs will wag their tails as they enjoy the biscuits they are offered as tales are told of explorations made and peaks conquered. A friendlier stop will be hard to find and sound local advice is always a must.
