Saron is a beautiful, recently renovated former chapel in a rural spot within the Snowdonia National Park. It is blessed with heavenly countryside views, yet it is just a short drive to some of North Wales' best attractions. The owner has carefully restored this lovely holiday house, keeping many of the original features which add to its wonderful charm.

In the slate-floored entrance hall there is plenty of space for outdoor clothing and boots. The gothic windows make the most of the dramatic view.

The mix of old and new in the sitting room is wonderful! The more time you spend in this lovely room, the more little features you will notice. It is fitted with a wall-hung flat screen TV and DVD player, and furnished with pink sofas. The woodburning stove will keep you warm and cosy whatever the weather. The dining table has chairs and original pews.

The well equipped kitchen has a microwave, electric hob and fan-assisted oven, a separate grill oven, washing machine, dishwasher and a large fridge/freezer.

A double bedroom on the ground floor has a standard double bed, fitted wardrobes and overhead storage. There are two ground floor bathrooms. One with a loo, shower, wash hand basin and heated towel rail, and another with a bath, loo, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

The open tread wooden stairs lead to two more bedrooms. One spacious double and one twin room. The double has gorgeous views across the Welsh countryside. The beautifully decorated Jack and Jill bathroom/dressing room can be accessed from either bedroom. This has a heated towel rail, loo, wash hand basin and full length free-standing mirror.

There is a lovely slate seating area with garden furniture overlooking fields and views to Moel Hebog and the rest of the valley. There is parking for two cars to the side of the chapel.

Fishing permits are available from Cath and Dave who live at Tyddyn Mawr 200 yards up the road. Prices vary from £8 in the evenings to £45 for the week.

From the doorstep you can take a walk around Llyn Cwmystradllyn. This natural lake has been enlarged to form a reservoir and lies in a basin between the wild mountains of Moel Hebog and Moel Ddu.

The busy town of Porthmadog is only a short drive away and has everything you will need from shops, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and pubs. It's also home to the Welsh Highland Railway and the Italianate village of Portmeirion. A little further away you will find all the attractions of south Snowdonia including Dolgellau, Beddgelert and Ffestiniog, to mention a few. And on your drive to Saron, look out for a remarkable edifice, originally built as a slate slab mill, which now resembles a ruined monastery.

Please note that there are six steps up to front door and open tread stairs to first floor. A car is recommended due to its fairly rural location. There is wifi at this cottage, however speed can be slower than usual at times.

Three bedrooms: 2 x double, 1 x twin. Two bathrooms: 1 x shower, loo and basin, 1 x bath, loo and basin, there is also a dressing room on the first floor with a loo and basin. Sitting room with wood buring stove.
