Quirky Chapel Conversion In The Beautiful Dysynni Valley | Brynhoreb

Dog FriendlyNear BeachNear PubReal Fire

This quirky chapel conversion in the beautiful Dysynni Valley comes with a mighty mountain backdrop and is close to the seaside at Tywyn. Sleeps up to 7 guests in four bedrooms, including two ground floor bedrooms.

Located in the quiet hamlet of Bryncrug, Brynhoreb offers bright, welcoming accommodation, with plenty of room for a decent sized holiday gang. It is ideally placed for exploring the mountains and coast of stunning southern Eryri (Snowdonia).

The chapel has been lovingly renovated to preserve the original character of the building with a complementary mix of stylish contemporary furnishings. We love the luxurious natural textures – including slate, terracotta, Welsh wool and sheepskin – used throughout, and the light from the chapel’s beautifully coloured windows is just wonderful.

On the ground floor, there is a large open plan living space and dining room. A plump sofa, rocking chair and a couple of comfortable armchairs are arranged around a roaring log burner. To one end of this bright room, a dining table seats up to eight, and there is a comfortable window seat – ideal for a spot of quiet reading or daydreaming.

A handy spacious boot room can be found in the basement to store your walking boots after a day exploring this beautiful area.

The very decent-sized kitchen is smart, modern, and well-equipped. We love that the kitchen’s colour palette has been inspired by that of its beautiful window. There is a double electric cooker and hob, with all the equipment and appliances you might need.

Also downstairs are two good sized double bedrooms along with a shared ground floor bathroom with a bath and shower.

Upstairs, there are two further bright bedrooms, one double and one single. The bedrooms have been artfully furnished, in keeping with the rest of the cottage. There are also two fabulous bathrooms upstairs, both with rolltop baths and walk in showers. And just in case you need to catch up on a few emails your hols, there is a lovely bright study up there too.

This really is a most wonderful part of the world. There are some great walks straight out of the front door, taking in the slopes of Tarren Y Gesail, and stations on the Talyllyn Railway line (Rhydyronen and Brynglas are the closest), amongst other lovely places. The summit of the mighty Cadair Idris is a mere eight or so miles away, and you can be at the seaside villages of Tywyn (Towyn) and Aberdyfi (Aberdovey) in just a handful of minutes by car.

It is no exaggeration to say that – even by North Wales standards – this is an especially stunning part of the world. Renowned for its big landscapes and diverse and abundant wildlife, it is brimming with opportunities to explore.

The cottage sits in the beautiful Dysynni Valley, from which rises the spectacular peak of Cadair Idris. This mystical mountain is named after the legendary giant warrior poet who is said to sit on its summit - take a hike to the top to be rewarded with the most amazing panoramic views.

At just a couple of miles away, Tywyn is the closest seaside town to this this quirky chapel conversion in the beautiful Dysynni Valley. The Wales Coastal Path runs right through the centre of the town and onto the Blue Flag Award beach. On a clear day you’ll get great views north towards Bardsey Island and Pwllheli on the Pen Llyn (Llyn Peninsula), and south as far as Fishguard and Aberystwyth.

Aberdyfi (also known as Aberdovey), is one of Eryri's (Snowdonia’s)prettiest coastal villages and just ten minutes’ away by car. A creative hub for artists and writers, it is also a big draw for anyone who enjoys watersports like sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. It’s the perfect spot for coastal walks and cosy pubs, and there is a decent number of good places to eat out.

If you like exploring the Welsh coast, it is well worth including a trip to Barmouth (40 minutes drive) on your holiday. If you like cycling, pack your bikes to explore the Mawddach trail, which follows the course of the old railway line from Barmouth to Ruabon. It will take you through stunning scenery and over beautiful old wooden bridges. A magical – and relatively easy – day out on two wheels with a superb mountains-and-coast backdrop.

Machynlleth is around 15 miles away. This historic town offers some great independent shops, places to eat and drink, and a couple of good art galleries. It’s well worth an explore: the town has a quirky, eco-friendly vibe, with the pioneering Centre for Alternative Technology and its engaging visitor centre just a couple of miles down the road.

For a real taste of the romance of Eryri you can’t beat the magic of a steam. Take a ride on one of the heritage railways at nearby Corris, Fairbourne or Talyllyn.

Such a beautiful house, oozing style and tranquility, and we really appreciated the generous welcome basket and all the lovely festive decorations for our Christmas stay 🙂 The layout works perfectly for both together time at the table or enjoying a film, and for quiet time apart to read, or savour the views. So many thoughtful gestures and so much to enjoy – the artwork, ceramics, textiles, furniture, books, games and puzzles, even a guitar 🙂 Spacious, light, supremely comfortable, we wanted for nothing, from super reliable WIFI, to beautifully made up beds, to the most indulgent baths, even through to a special bowl for our pet. The perfect location for walks, beaches, and one of the best cinemas ever is a 5 minute drive away! Communication from our first enquiry and subsequently throughout was exemplary 🙂 Thank you for making our Christmas so special and unforgettable:)


Lovely place to stay in the Welsh countryside. Unfortunately the weather was poor so didn’t get to go on many hikes but the accommodation still made it a great place to stay whilst raining! It’s a quaint accommodation which is full of character…also with a pub 30 seconds walk down the road!


Fantastic house, and with beautiful views of the hills. Easy to access local walking, and short drive to a beautiful beach and nearby town. The pub in the village is great, servicing good food, drink, and a cozy atmosphere. The house is very well appointed with 4 bedrooms and 3 spacious full bathrooms. The kitchen and appliances were well stocked and all easy to use. The house would be perfect for families and with a well-behaved dog. We would definitely stay here again.


Beautiful property with plenty of room to relax. Parking for one car but free public car park a stone’s throw away. Several walks from the doorstep along or across the river Fathew. Local Peniarth Arms has plenty of beers and wonderful food at very reasonable prices with very friendly staff. Table booking suggested as it can get busy. Loved it here.


Beautiful house, so much space for a family of six. Everything we could need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Thank you for the clear instructions and easy contact when we needed help! The village is lovely and Tywyn is 5 minutes away.

Great stay and will definitely book again. The Chapel conversion was of a high standard with everything needed for a great stay. The only suggestion would be for more parking space as we travelled in 2 cars and there was only sufficient space for one car

Wonderful place, beautifully converted. Very clean and full of everything you need during your stay. Great location with the Wales Coast Path and Cadair Idris very close by.
