Whether you want to surf, swim, walk, climb or just relax in the peace of this beautiful headland house drinking in the far reaching views, time spent at "Awelon" will recharge the batteries. The house has just been refurbished to the highest standard and has plenty of space for everyone (10-12 people plus 2 cots) to do their own thing.
The coves and beaches all around the house are there to be explored, and the fishing village of Aberdaron and the more buzzy harbour at Abersoch are all minutes away by car, and yet the tiny hamlet of Rhiw provides the sort of silence and tranquillity that is so rare.
