Awelon, Pwllheli

Situated in the village of Rhiw between Abersoch and Aberdaron on the Lleyn Peninsula, this beautiful five bedroom luxury cottage with spectacular sea views overlooks the six miles of sands of Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth). The period holiday cottage welcomes dogs and stands in its own gardens of a third of an acre.

Awelon is believed to date back to the 1600s and may have originally been the village Chapel. Newer parts were added in 1837 and again in 2009. It is now a superb contemporary luxury holiday cottage combining the best of old and new. The cottage is beautifully presented in every aspect and really does provide an ideal home from home.

Awelon has been designed to offer a high standard of modern living and so provides very spacious and light accommodation. The property is ideal for large groups with two sitting rooms and a large kitchen and dining area. The main sitting room boasts a cathedral vaulted ceiling, log burning stove, armchairs and sofas, CD player, flatscreen TV with HD receiver, DVD/video, stereo CD player with iPod dock. Free WiFi. French doors lead to the gardens and offer views across Mynydd Rhiw. The second sitting room has a large woodburning stove, sofas and chairs and a 40 inch flatscreen HD TV. French doors open onto the veranda and slate terrace with spectacular views for over 40 miles towards Porth Neigwl, Cardigan Bay and the Snowdonia mountain range.

Awelon has a huge flagged kitchen/diner with Aga style range and large dining table - forming the heart of the house - with slate flooring and granite worksurfaces, an 'Aga' style range, induction hob, dishwasher, microwave, American style fridge/freezer, stone fireplace with wood-burner and a refectory table and chair to seat 12. There is an additional utility/boot room with washing machine, tumble dryer, WC, basin and ample drying space and a separate shower room useful for getting rid of sand.

The luxury cottage comprises five bedrooms sleeping 10 people plus two cots. There are also two single folding beds, which can also be made up in two of the bedrooms if required so the house can sleep 12 guests plus two babies. The master bedroom is accessed via stairs up from the lounge to a minstrels' gallery with double doors leading to the lovely spacious room with super kingsize bed, stunning views over the bay and a well-appointed ensuite shower room with a large walk-in shower, WC and basin. There are a further three bedrooms and a bathroom accessed via stairs leading from the dining area - a pretty kingsize bedroom with vaulted ceiling and fantastic views across the bay, a double bedroom, a twin room with vaulted ceiling, bay views and optional folding bed and a newly fitted bathroom with rolltop bath, separate shower, WC and basin. The fifth bedroom is on the ground floor and has full-size bunk beds and an optional folding single bed.

Awelon is set in large enclosed gardens on a hillside. It has dry stone walls and a few drops - such as from the lawn onto the rear terrace - so children and dogs should be supervised. The house has a terrace with garden furniture at the front of the house to take in the breathtaking views across the sea and a ten seater dining table on the sheltered rear terrace with stone outdoor fireplace/barbecue. There is ample off-road parking for up to four cars and a boat.

Up to 2 dogs welcome by arrangement.

LocationNorth Wales

North Wales showcases some of the UK's most varied landscape, from the snow-capped mountains of Snowdonia to the beaches of the Llyn Peninsula. Indeed, it is one of the only parts of Britain where you can be in the mountains in the morning and at the seaside by the afternoon. The diverse animal life of the region reflects this, with everything from otters to ospreys and seals to dolphins.

Not many places are imbued with such history and heritage, which is reflected throughout the region from cottages to castles! Attractions abound, with zoos and farms, steam railways and activity centres. There are regular events from international cultural festivals and shows to family fun days.

The area also offers a huge range of outdoor activities; walking, cycling, fishing, golf and water-sports to name only a few. In many parts of North Wales the spoken language is Welsh, not English, although people who cannot or will not speak the latter are rare, and signposts and other notices always display their message in both languages.
