Cosy Chapel in the heart of Snowdonia close to the seaside town of Aberdyfi. Designed by local architect and finished to a excellent standard. Nearby village of Pennal has a excellent Pub and Restaurant serving fine local food. Fabulous place for lover's of the outdoors as there are many walks, cycle paths and nature reserves on the doorstep. The Historic march town of Machynlleth is a short drive and has a wide range of quality shops and eateries.
“We absolutely loved the warmth and character of the chapel (and especially the calm and beauty of the view of the field behind, which is shared by sheep and pheasants!). It is comfortably and attractively furnished, and thoughtfully equipped by host Michael. The bed in the main bedroom is one of the most comfortable that we have ever slept in on holiday - a wonderful firm thick mattress - so extra thanks, Michael, for such good nights' sleep! And we really appreciated the big fluffy bathroom towels too! Michael gave us all the info we needed for the Chapel - and about the surrounding area. The position is excellent for exploring a corner of Wales with so much to offer - the glorious countryside of the Snowdonia National Park with its dark skies, perfect for stargazing, if only the weather is clear enough; gorgeous seaside towns like Aberystwyth and Abudovey (Welsh Aberdyfi); and wonderfully quirky and alternative Machynlleth (don't miss the Centre for Alternative Technology with its friendly, wonderfully knowledgeable and passionate staff and so much to see and learn and experience - at least half a day needed or more). There was plenty more left to see for a return visit. Judi and Steve Herman - and a very happy Bertie the Bedlington Terrier”

“If you are looking for an experience that gives inspiration and hope. You need to visit .The Narnia cottage at Blaeneinion was a complete delight. The cottage itself is very cosy and feel so comfortable .The fact that it is set in a wonderful permaculture success story is as magical as Narnia. Sharon is a delightful funny and inspiring host who has created a wonderland . The bonus on top of it all was food foraged from a garden and eaten in February. I was amazed and delighted by it all.”
