The property

Chwilog 1.5 miles.

This superb medieval barn has been carefully converted by the existing owner into a wonderful 5-bedroom holiday cottage, on the rural outskirts of the small village of Chwilog, 5 miles from Pwllheli on the Llyn Peninsula.

Nestled in beautiful countryside and enjoying distant sea views over Cardigan Bay, this Pwllheli cottage boasts a superb 10-metre long heated swimming pool, full-size tennis courts and delightful secluded gardens with orchard and lawns ideal for croquet.

This Pwllheli cottage is split into three wings, with a super king-size room and bunk room in the west wing, and a super king-size and twin bedroom in the east wing.

The third wing is a self-contained one-bedroom cottage, accessed through its super king-size bedroom and down a spiral staircase, which leads into a cosy lounge and dining area with woodburner and kitchen with separate entrance if required, making this an ideal Pwllheli cottage for couples who wish to holiday with family yet retain a little more privacy.

The main house boasts an impressive sitting room with high galleried, beamed ceiling, central woodburner and large banqueting table, with a further breakfast table in the fully fitted kitchen.

French doors lead from the sitting room of this Pwllheli cottage onto the patio, which incorporates a woodburning pizza oven and a gas-fired Mongolian hot plate for BBQs.

The heated swimming pool is fully enclosed for safety, but has the bonus of a retractable canopy, for those superb sunny days that this coastline regularly experiences.

With all these amenities available for your holiday you will not want to leave this superb Pwllheli cottage, but should you choose to, the spectacular coastline with its walking trails and sandy beaches awaits, as does the stunning scenery of Anglesey and the Snowdonia National Park.

A very special Pwllheli cottage for a memorable break with family and friends.
