The property

A beautiful bolthole resting at the centre of Criccieth town, which is often described as the 'Pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia', Llawenfan is ideally situated for a romantic escape to Wales.

In easy reach of both coast and countryside attractions, this characterful cottage is an ideal base for a couple's retreat at any time of the year.

Step in off the road and into the snug living/dining area sitting behind the oak door; take a seat at the dining table, admiring the characterful exposed stone wall which runs throughout the property as you slurp on a warming cup of tea, or unwind in the sitting area of the room, separated by a charming board in the shape of a beach hut to tie in with the maritime theme of the property, here a wood burning stove awaits you to settle down with your loved one in front of the Smart TV for a relaxing evening in.

Make your way into the monochrome kitchen to be greeted with all the essentials for a self-catered stay, its beautiful slate worktops making the perfect place to prepare a romantic meal, while to the back of the room you can find both a convenient utility and cloakroom.

Straight off the staircase you will find the king-size bedroom, carrying on the quirky maritime interior with its fish-themed bed stands as well as also boasting exposed stone walls, this eclectic mix makes a lovely place to snuggle up beneath the crisp linens each evening, the en-suite shower room offering the perfect spot to get ready for your day each morning too.

While away your mornings soaking up the sun in the front courtyard, before taking a short stroll to see what Criccieth has to offer.

A popular coastal town, here you can find a good selection of shops and eateries catering for all your cuisine needs, as well as the historic wonder of its 13th century castle sitting atop a rocky outcrop, offering beautiful views of Tremadog Bay and the Snowdonia Mountains.

Be sure to spend a day on one of the town's beaches too, where you can try your hand at a new water sport or simply enjoy the warmth of the rays for the ultimate seaside experience.

Hop on the train and explore wider Wales, Portmeirion being well-worth exploring and accessed via nearby Minffordd's train station, this Italianate village is home to exotic gardens, award-winning restaurants, an authentic ice cream parlour and much more, offering a fun-filled day for all tastes.

Explore the wonder of the Snowdonia National Park, the summit of Mount Snowdon offering spectacular views which can be accessed via foot, bike or even railway, while the historic Isle of Anglesey can be reached by a scenic car journey, with plenty of attractions and even ferry rides over to Ireland for a day out with a difference.

Llawenfan is a perfect holiday home for exploring the coast and countryside of North Wales.
