But it now boasts planning permission to give it a new lease of life as a holiday let.

Cooper Green Pook, who are taking care of the sale, have also confirmed that the guide price of this beautiful property has dropped considerably from £124,950 to £104,950.


A spokesperson said: “A unique opportunity to purchase this attractive detached former chapel, which currently has planning permission for conversion to provide what will be very popular holiday rental accommodation.”

The property is nestled within the 'charming hamlet' of Morton, close to the Welsh border, and has easy access to the countryside, which includes Lake Vyrnwy, Bala, and the stunning Snowdonia National Park.

Morton Chapel was inaugurated for religious services on October 28, 1838. It is understood to have been closed for the last four years.

Planning permission to convert the building was granted in August, this year, to offer an open-plan living area with a kitchen, featuring a vaulted ceiling.

Additionally, it includes a separate shower room and a mezzanine double bedroom on the first floor.

Outside, there is approved consent for a parking space (with an already installed dropped curb) and a cosy private courtyard garden.
