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

Awelon is an incredible place to stay with friends and family. From most rooms in the house you are met with breath taking views of the countryside and the bay below, it’s idyllic and the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city! I loved waking up each morning, making breakfast and spending quality time...

Management response:

Thanks so much for your kind review - the stars at night from the hottub are spectacular with so little light pollution. Many thanks Alex and Jackie

Amazing location and views over Hellsmouth Bay. New hot tub enjoyed by everyone. The house is perfect for our family of 6 adults 4 children and 2 dogs. Alex the owner really cares for his guests and house, it really feels like home to us. We were all very sad to go home! Can’t wait for our next visit!

Mid way between ABERSOCH and ABERDARON overlooking premier surfing beach of North Wales. Surfing competitions, fishing, walking, swimming,wake boarding sailing, beach combing, all available in idyllic surroundings. The Whitewashed fishing villages of Aberdaron (4 miles) and the busy and buzzy Abersoch (6 miles) plus the market town of Pwllheli (17 miles) all provide a variety of family days out. Also trips to Bardsey Island and its retreat Monastery and chance of dolphin views on the way, the manor house (National Trust) of Plas-yn-Rhiw, the Italianate Port Merion (where the filming of 'The Prisoner' took place) add to the appeal of Awelon. Many walks available direct from the house with out needing to get in the car.
Getting around
There is daily bus that does a loop from the village to Pwllheli calling at the villages on the way at 11am and returning at 4pm. There is a mainline station in Pwllheli that goes through central Wales, and an intercity line at Bangor (1 hours drive).
There is also a walkers bus that allows folk to do part of the 'Edge of Wales Walk' (that now stretches from Cornwall to Scotland) and get back home if timed correctly tho at present this only runs in the summer.
Cycle hire is available in Aberdaron.

How to get there
Railway: Pwllheli: 14.3 mi
Easily reached from Greater Manchester and Merseyside in between 135 and 165 minutes along the A55 North Wales coast road and the newly upgraded roads between Carnarvon and the cottage, there are plenty of places to break the journey, but nowadays the journey is so easy there is little need.
Both Manchester and Liverpool have International airports with car hire facilities and the trip from them is very straightforward.
There are Railway stations at Bangor (1 hour by car from the cottage) or Pwllheli (20 minutes by car). There is one daily bus service to and from the village.
