This charming, ground floor whitewashed cottage is 3.5 miles from Aberdaron in North Wales, with two bedrooms accommodating four people.

Porth Awyr is a wonderful, single-storey whitewashed stone cottage, situated amongst beautiful countryside near Aberdaron in North Wales, on the Llyn Peninsula. The cottage has two bedrooms which can accommodate four people, including a double room, a single room with an additional pull-out single bed and a family bathroom.

Outside, the garden enjoys beautiful countryside views to the rear and ample off road parking. With North Wales' stunning coastline easy to reach, as well as the Snowdonia National Park and the Isle of Anglesey, Porth Awyr is a wonderful base for couples and small families, all year round.

Porth Awyr was very clean and tidy, in a nice, quiet area yet with shops only a few miles away . Excellent walks nearby by also.
Mr Hawker

This is a cosy little cottage in a beautifully quiet location. To give an idea of the quietness, the highest number of vehicles passing our door in one day was 4 (two of those was the postman)! We used it as a base for walking along the coastal path, exploring the peninsula and wider area. It was clean and tidy upon arrival, the key collection was straightforward. The cottage was equipped for 4 people (the max number that can stay). There was a dishwasher and washer/dryer which worked perfectly. For our comfort the double bed was far too soft, luckily as there was only three of us we could simply swap the sleeping arrangements. Aberdarron is a lovely little village nearby (3miles), Abersoch is a 'trendy' little village a little further away. We can highly recommend Dylan's in Cricceith. Part of the attraction of this cottage was that we could take our dog. We also thoroughly enjoyed stargazing at night as a bonus due to virtually no light pollution. We would certainly recommend this cottage for peace, quiet and relaxation.
