The cottage is well equipped for a self catering for up to 6 people, with a galley kitchen with a 4 ring gas hob, separate electric oven and grill, microwave, toaster, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine; cook up a hearty breakfast before exploring the Llŷn Peninsula and finish the day with your family's favourite home-cooked meal.

Younger guests or those seeking a quieter escape will find a that there is a charming rear snug sitting room at the back of the house with a further exposed stone wall and a Freeview TV with large windows overlooking the bay and the castle.

Catch your rest ready for the day's adventures in one of three bedrooms at Awel Y Mor, including a king-size, a twin and a bunkbed.

Energise the day with a hot shower in the convenient ground-floor wet room or sink into a bubble bath in the spacious family bathroom with access to the first-floor terrace, before wrapping yourself in a warm towel fresh off the heated towel rail.

Awel Y Mor's outdoor space makes it a wonderful summer base; dine alfresco on the patio with a barbecue and benches for seating, as well as space for storing bikes, surf boards and muddy boots, or take the spiral staircase up to the first-floor terrace, a lovely spot to soak up the views.

Admire the sparkling sea, bustling bay and village, as well as Criccieth's romantic hilltop Castle, whilst you gather around the outdoor seating or recline on the sun loungers with a good book.

You'll be situated in the centre of Criccieth for a plethora of amenities and attractions; dine in a traditional Welsh pub, grab takeaway fish and chips before heading to the sandy beaches, or climb the hill to get a closer look at the spectacular Criccieth Castle.

If you want to explore more of this fantastic region of Wales, journey east for Porthmadog, a popular coastal town with three scenic railway routes taking guests to Caernarfon and Blaenau Ffestiniog, whilst The Cob is a much-loved landmark well-worth a walk for beautiful sea views.
