Works to convert an old chapel in Conwy into a guest house are underway.

Last year the Erskine Arms, owned by Stange & Co., submitted plans to turn the disused Baptist chapel and outbuilding that sits opposite the pub on Church Street into an 11 bedroom boutique guest house.

The Erskine Arms has gone from strength to strength over the past 12 months since its refurbishment.

Currently the Georgian Inn has 10 boutique bedrooms sitting over three floors above the pub and have proved to be incredibly popular with visitors to Conwy.

The owners said the new plans would create a luxury stay but with a more self-catering feel to the Erskine Arms offering a communal kitchen and lounge area for guests.

Planning permission was granted by Conwy County Borough Council and Cadw last year, with the chapel being a Grade II listed building.

Builders have now moved onto the site and work is well underway into developing the chapel into a self contained accommodation offer to complement the Erskine Arms.

While the building is still in its early stages Stange and Co. are hoping to have the new site open towards the end of the year.
