Walks, hikes & scrambles
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.
This is a nice circular walk around the village.
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.
This is a link for all the main routes up Snowdon.
One of the easier walks up Tryfan.
A guide to scrambling up the north ridge of Tryfan a favourite for the adventurous.
Tyfan and the Glyders an incredible but long day in the mountains often on exposed ground.
A gentle walk around a Llyn Idwal.


  • 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.

  • This location was perfect for a fun, party weekend with lots of friends. 15 of us in total, as soon as we arrived we were greeted by owner, Alice who gave us a great tour and was very helpful with absolutely everything throughout the whole weekend. Most rooms had an ensuite which was great considering the amount of people. Although it is situated in a picturesque village with lots of walking trails and climbing to do etc, you really wouldn’t need to leave the church to have fun. Kitted out with a zip wire, hot tub, table tennis, pool table and loads of board games (for when we may have been a tad hungover), we were never bored. All in all, it was a perfect location for a group. I can honestly say the pictures do not do it justice and me and my friends will definitely be headed back.

    Weekend Getaway with Friends – Stayed April 2018
  • The best long weekend ever... need a week there really. Right what first? Amazing space tick. Perfect location, tick. Lovely hosts... tick. Hot tub overlooking Snowdon. Tick. Basically this church is the one, we had the best time here, huge kitchen and grand communal space incredible original features. Musicians would love it as there's a grand piano and guitars. We went as a big group of friends and loved it. Loads to do near by and it’s the best place to come home to afterwards. Thanks Alice!

  • I hired the church for my best friends hen do in February. We had a total of 16 ladies staying for 2 nights over the weekend and it was the perfect hen house, very spacious and complete with hot tub, what more do you need! We went to Zip world for one of the activities which was only a 20 minute drive away and would highly recommend it. Alice was a great host and couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. The bedrooms were great and most with en-suite which was perfect for our group.
