5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12
Rhiw, Gwynedd, North Wales, Wales
Whether you want to surf, swim, walk, climb or just relax in the peace of this beautiful headland house drinking in the far reaching views, time spent at "Awelon" will recharge the batteries. The house has just been refurbished to the highest standard and has plenty of space for everyone (10-12 people plus 2 cots) to do their own thing.
The coves and beaches all around the house are there to be explored, and the fishing village of Aberdaron and the more buzzy harbour at Abersoch are all minutes away by car, and yet the tiny hamlet of Rhiw provides the sort of silence and tranquillity that is so rare. NOW WITH A HOT TUB

Had a lovely week in Awelon, first impressions were excellent, the cottage was everything we hoped and more. Thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular views and the house was the perfect base to explore the surrounding areas.

Just returned from a wonderful week at Awelon with our extended family and 2 dogs. The house was very well equipped and very thoughtfully presented. The garden was perfect for children to play in. Stunning views from the house. We enjoyed some great walks and played on 3 different beaches . Plenty of room for all.
