The property

Gwel Afon, a wonderful ground-floor apartment, is located in the lovely community of Llanystumdwy near Criccieth.

Gwel Afon is the ideal home for a family of four, as it is situated on the banks of the River Dwyfor, which can be heard from your own front garden.

Snowdonia National Park is also nearby.

There are two off-street parking spaces and a front patio with chairs for you to enjoy your morning cup of tea amongst tranquil surroundings.

Look forward to kicking back with your loved ones on the inviting, leather corner sofa and watching your favourite show on the Smart TV.

In the well-equipped kitchen, whip up a delicious meal for four to be served at the dining table or outside in the garden with the soothing murmur of the river.

Two well-appointed bedrooms await after a day of exploring: a double with an en-suite shower room, and a bunk room for the kids.

You can take a stroll along the river, visit the Amgueddfa Lloyd George Museum, or enjoy a drink at the Tafarn Y Plu bar, which is housed in a Grade II listed structure.

In Criccieth you'll find a petrol station stocking the essentials, a magnificent castle with sweeping sea views and two stunning beaches.

You can also stop at Dylan's for some fresh seafood.

Porthmadog, with its Welsh Highland Heritage Railway, great golf course, and Black Rock Llamas, is just a short drive away.

The North Wales Coastal Footpath and the Snowdonia National Park, where you may climb the iconic Snowdon Peak, is also within easy reach, as is the North Wales Coastal Path for further excellent walking and cycling opportunities.

Your adventure begins at Gwel Afon.


Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
