It¹s probably true to say that there¹s nowhere else quite like St Curig¹s in North Wales. Ancient and modern stylishly combine in this B&B set within a 19th century church in the mountain village of Capel Curig. Where else can you sleep beneath a carved stone pulpit, enjoy a hot tub under the stars or play table tennis beneath a fabulous 19th century mosaic ceiling? And all with lovely views of Snowdonia¹s mountains from every window

This was the vision Alice Douglas had when she first came to the village ten years ago and decided to make the church her home. The story of the conversion, a rollercoaster ride through planning regulations, builders and love affairs was described in Alice¹s fortnightly Sunday Times column. it¹s probably also true to say that there¹s nowhere else like St Curig¹s for atmosphere.

Breakfast is served at a large communal table in the spacious kitchen on the mezzanine level giving a bird¹s eye view of the church¹s glittering mosaic ceiling. A hearty full Welsh breakfast, that will power you up any of the surrounding hills or fuel you through a day of sightseeing, is served here. But lighter options are always available too. For refuelling in the evening, three pubs serving meals are in easy walking distance and there are good restaurants within a 10-minute drive.

On a typical weekend, the St Curigs is full of walkers and climbers, families, writers, photographers, romantics S and there¹s never a dull moment. This is a family home, with all the toys pets and friends that that involves. You¹re likely to be greeted by Brecon, the friendly German Shepherd, and the cats may want to curl up next to you on the sofa. But, if you¹re not a dog person, let Alice know and she will keep him inside when you arrive. It¹s also worth knowing that the atmosphere at St Curig¹s at times can be that of a house party. And, because of the nature of the building, those lying-in may hear some noise in the morning from early risers keen to get out on the mountains. That said, all guests are asked to keep noise to a minimum after 11pm when the pinball machine is switched off and the table football machine is off-limits. By then most guests are ready for their beds and a good night¹s sleep in preparation for another day out in SnowdoniaS

A little history for those who are interested - until 1848, Capel Curig formed a chapelry in the parish of Llandegai but was administered by the priest from Dolwyddelan with worship being held in the old St Curigs church which dates from the 13th century and was originally Curigs Chapel from which the village got its name. With the growing number of visitors to Capel Curig in the 19th century the old St Curigs church (now St Julitta's ) became too small to accommodate the congregation and the new St Curigs church was opened in 1883. The new church was dedicated to St. Curig, the boy martyr and the dedication of the old church was then changed to St. Julitta - Curig's mother. Whilst services where transferred to the new church the graveyard at the old church continued in use until quite recently - there are no graves in the grounds of St Curigs

St Curigs was deconcecrated in 1992 and was taken over by the current owner in 1998 to be lovingly transformed to provide luxury bed and breakfast accommodation - the story of the conversion being published in the Sunday Times ( articles continue to be published )

St Curigs can easily be found on the western side of the village opposite the junction of the A5 and the A4086
