    “The facilities available for use in ‘Awelfryn’ went beyond the description, we had taken towels for the hot tub (we did use our own), & lots of kitchen items ( tea towels, oven gloves etc) & really we did not need to.”

    The house was beautiful & catered for our every need. The views were amazing & the outdoor furniture was positioned to make the most of these views.

The property benefits from parking and a nice front, back and rear garden to choose from, ideal for evenings spent dining alfresco whilst some members of the family soak in the luxury hot tub.

Be welcomed into the spacious sitting room, featuring a lovely outlook of the sea, where you can relax on the sumptuous seating in front of the gas fire, as your favourite show plays out on the TV.

Just off the kitchen is a handy utility for your convenience.

Completing the ground floor is a sleek bathroom, where you can freshen up under the overhead shower or with a soak in the small bath after an adventure-filled day.

Follow the stairs up to the first floor, where you’ll find a well-appointed shower room and a cloakroom, along with four beautifully decorated bedrooms, a super-king-size with en-suite shower room and breath-taking sea views, two doubles, and a single.

Explore the town, where you can visit the impressive Castell Criccieth, spend a day on the golden sands of the beach, test out your swing at the excellent Criccieth Multi Golf, sample fresh seafood at Dylan’s, British classics at Poachers, and hearty pub fare at Prince of Wales.

Nearby, you’ll find Black Rock Sands, home to a gorgeous beach, the Greenacres Nature Reserve, and the popular Black Rock Sands Beach Club, serving award-winning cask ales, cocktail and wines, as well as a tasty seasonal menu.

Often described as the 'Pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia’, this delightful seaside town is situated just 5 miles from Porthmadog. The town’s 13th-century castle perches majestically on a rocky outcrop, dominating the skyline and offering superb views of Tremadog Bay and the Snowdonia mountains. Watersports enthusiasts will be delighted by the two beaches, whilst walkers and bikers are spoilt for choice by the proximity of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. Stroll along the beaches, watch porpoises playing in the surf, or relax in the various pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, sampling the famous Cadwalader’s ice cream. Further afield, attractions such as Portmeirion’s wonderful Italianate gardens, the Ffestiniog railway in Porthmadog, Harlech Castle, Caernarfon Castle and the beautiful beaches and renowned golf courses of the Llyn Peninsula are all within an easy drive.
