  • "Gorgeous stay."

    Felt like a home away from home, gorgeous decor and well equipped in every way - from great kitchen items, to board games to some Childrens toys. Everything about this stay made us feel at home and comfortable. Even though the weather was very mixed it made the rainy days lovely and relaxed as we could switch off properly knowing our two year old enjoyed the space and those toys as well. Beds so comfy and the nice bed linen - this really made a difference compared to lots of other holiday rentals. We loved it and want to come back again in autumn/winter to cosy up with that log burner. Even the location being so rural it felt like a real switch off. The day we left our almost 3 year old asked me ‘mummy can we live here now?’ That says it all x

  • "A lovely cottage which we have visited preciously."

    Very comfortable beds, well equipped, tastefully decorated and entertainment for the little people. Great spot for exploring the beaches of the Llyn. We were disappointed this time however with the very late (6pm) check in and very early (9am) check out, which was not apparent until we had booked the cottage. This was quite a challenge with young children and made it feel like we had lost a day of our holiday. Surely this could be amended now the pandemic is over?

    Thanks for the feedback, we’ve taken the opportunity to review the change over times and have now reverted these to the pre covid times. Thank you for highlighting this. Hopefully we can welcome you back to Awelon soon. Property Owner

  • "Superb home, in a superb location!"

    So impressed by how light the living space area is, with stunning views. We loved spending time in this space. Great array of toys around for our little one, which was brilliant, and lots of thought had been put into what equipment to provide. Comfortable and well-presented bedrooms, and a lovely garden too. Thank you!

  • "Had a lovely holiday."

    Very relaxing cottage, pretty well equipped. Duvets heavy at 13.5 tog. Could have done with summer tog duvet with the temperature being hot, but that was my only issue with the cottage. Everything else was perfect .

  • "What a fabulous cottage, excellent facilities, the owners really have thought of everything."

    We spent a very warm and sunny week staying at Awelon in June. The cottage has been renovated to a very high standard, the living area was very comfortable and unique in its sense of style. The toys and games were really appreciated by both of my children. The cottage is well situated for lots of local beaches, and also for relaxing, at the end of the day. This is probably one of the best cottages we have stayed in, so good we are returning next year. The only very minor suggestions I might make are a lower tog duvet, as we were very warm at night. Also, some of the children’s furniture might benefit from being more firmly bolted to the wall. I would highly recommend Awelon.

  • "We had a fantastic last minute Easter break at Awelon."

    The property is spotless, very well maintained and has a lot of nice touches such as toys for the children, a bottle of wine and biscuits as part of our welcome pack, maps of the local area etc. The location is excellent, we visited hells mouth, abersoch and aberdaron. Our two children didn’t want to leave! Highly recommend for a relaxing break on the Welsh coast.

  • "This was our second stay at this cottage , lovely cottage a real home from home."

    Well equipped kitchen, lovely garden, but the garden furniture is in need of replacing, two broken chairs and very uncomfortable furniture. Other than that had a brilliant holiday, will return again hopefully next year

    We are glad that you had another enjoyable stay at Awelon. The garden furniture has now been replaced and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you back next year. Property Owner

  • "Awelon is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location and we would love to go back next year."

    A couple of things could be improved though. Firstly, we thought the amended check in and departure times were a bit unfair, especially as we were then contacted and asked to delay our arrival by an extra half an hour as the cleaners had been delayed gaining access to the property. This meant that we only really had 6 days when we had paid for a week. We even decided to come home on Thursday night as we would have had to be up at the crack of dawn to be ready to vacate by 9am on the Friday. We may have been able to overlook this as we understand covid has caused changes but the cottage wasn't even thoroughly cleaned. I had to hoover it myself as there were crisps and things in the sofa, cobwebs in the living room and some of the cups in the property had not been cleaned properly. This made us uneasy, especially knowing the risks of covid. Given the extra time we had to allow for cleaning, I would have expected the place to be spotless. It was a nice surprise to see a washing machine as this hadn't been listed in the facilities but no pegs were provided to hang anything out. The garden furniture is past its best and a couple of the chairs had broken spindles. The master bedroom we thought was quite dated, the furniture is old and quite musty and we had to force the wardrobe door to keep it shut, it would be nice to have some nicer furniture in there. Hopefully this feedback will enable you to make a lovely cottage even more comfortable for future guests and we hope to return next year.

  • "Great location - a short journey from beautiful beaches."

    Comfortable, stylish interior. Lots of children’s toys. Quiet and peaceful. Very useful to have a washing machine. Lovely enclosed garden. Very helpful owner who provided a cot / high chair at our request. The only things we would change would be the cleaning (it was surface clean but not spotless) and a couple of maintenance issues (dishwasher not cleaning properly and a damp smell in the main bedroom).

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We will look into your comments and get the issues rectified. We hope to welcome you back to Awelon in the future. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is fine but it doesn’t have a view to the sea and all soaps are just a little amount and there are some of insects."

    Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. Whilst we don't have sea views, there are lovely views across the countryside to the Rhiw headland. The office has been trying to contact you to get some further information with regards the insects. We've inspected the cottage twice now and can only find the usual odd spider and fly you'd expect to find in the countryside. If you could contact Menai with further information, we would really appreciate it. Property Owner

  • "Our first time visiting the Lleyn Peninsula."

    The weather was perfect for walking and the views were superb. The cottage was extremely comfortable and well designed and the little book of walks provided on the Lleyn Peninsula was extremely useful. We did 3 of them. Our favourite was around Aberdaron for the amazing views of Bardsey island The decor, furniture and bed linen in the cottage were all good quality which exceeded our expectations. We found the local people to be friendly and helpful. All in all we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend Menai Cottages and the Lleyn Peninsula.

  • "A lovely clean cottage with all the items you could want and done out to a high standard."

    Pictures on site probably don't portray this cottage as being big, but we were surprised that it was as big as it was. Would highly recommend to any one. Location being in between Aberdaron and Abersoch is quiet, but so long as you happy to drive 10 mins you can easily then find a shop, pub, restaurant or beach. For walkers great spot to. Lots of ground attached to cottage for either kids to play or just chill. Personally even little things like good wifi made a difference here. Loved just chilling in the main room gazing out of the massive windows at the views. If this cottage was based in Abersoch it would be double the price

    Would be nice if there was washing up liquid and toilet paper on arrival. Weather was great but only one chair in courtyard and one sunbed. Didn't need to use the cabin.

The property

This modern and bright bungalow has been perfectly designed to maximise space with the bedrooms at the front so as to benefit from the floor to ceiling windows in the open planned living area at the rear.

Nestled in the countryside of the Llyn but just a couple of miles from the sandy shores of Hells Mouth Beach (Porth Neigwl in Welsh), you really do get the best of both worlds!.

"What a fantastic base from which to explore...

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
