This is a straightforward circuit that starts from the footpath next to the church and you can do it at almost any time of the year. Starting from Capel Curig, the route travels over moorland, into two beautiful valleys containing lakes, and finally some forestry. Its highest point is only about 340m, and the distance about 15km.

This is a shorter version of the above walk and only goes to one of the lakes. It’s also a great run.

If you’d like to walk up Siabod which is a mountain right in the village this is the best route.

This is the classic route up Snowdon and starts from Pen y Pass which is near to the church.

The Snowdon Horseshoe is a wonderful hike but not for the fainthearted as it’s exposed and fairly long. If you are thinking about this then please read the route description carefully to check that all your party are capable.

Reviews

  • I hired the church for 15 friends and we all had an amazing time, with everyone commenting on how much they enjoyed the property. Comfortable bedrooms and fantastic communal areas - a big living room with fire, pool table and grand piano, and a large mezzanine kitchen area above which could fit us all in for dinner. The garden was a great bonus and we all enjoyed the jacuzzi even when it was drizzling!. Alice and her husband were brilliant hosts, making us feel immediately relaxed and at home

  • We hired the whole church for my 70th birthday celebration and stayed five days. There were eleven of us and three dogs. The ambiance is fantastic and the bedrooms are very comfortable all with modern en suite bathrooms. The host, was very helpful when needed and she should be immensely proud of her achievement in creating such a wonderful and spacious environment for relaxation.
