“Idyllic”
Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Super location with views over Aberdaron and the beach. The weather was kind to us so we had the opportunity to use the summerhouse for afternoon drinks in the sunshine. Just a short downhill walk to the village [a bit longer coming up!], with a great fish &chip shop [Sblash], a couple of pubs, three cafes, and a good bakery/coffee shop.

Only two downsides to the whole trip, but they didn't spoil anything:
1. There is no wifi/internet connection, nor any mobile service at Awel y Mor - you have to walk down to the village and tap into the free service there for internet, or drive towards Abersoch for about 5 minutes before you have a mobile service. So, a great place to unwind, away from modern communication devices, but a bit limited if you want to stay in touch with the rest of the world.
2. If you want to eat an early evening meal, and then enjoy a G&T in Awel y Mor's sheltered back garden, plan on eating before 2pm, or after 6pm. We were caught out thinking the pubs would offer all-day food, especially on a Saturday.

Overall, a great stay and we have already recommended it to friends.

Liked best: The views from the lounge, and the back garden
Liked least: The pump for the shower was noisier than we were used to, and we had to close the kitchen door to shut out the buzz from the freezer.

“Idyllic view in unspoilt village”
Reviewed 11 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My husband's family have been visiting Aberdaron for many years due to the beautiful village, choice of beaches and friendly pubs to visit. Awel y more is the perfect location to explore. Set a few minutes walk from the village centre with ample room for parking. The cottage itself is modernly decorated with everything you need for a comfortable stay including a high chair and fit for those with infants and a toy chest for children. The garden is large with a beautiful and warm summer house which is great for reading a book in the afternoon - very peaceful! However, the highlight for me is having a cup of tea in the morning looking out over Aberdaron bay. It really was a perfect stay.

“Lovely Holiday cottage”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My Fiancee, Daughter and i have recently returned from staying at Awel y Mor.
The cottage is absolutely fantastic, really well looked after, clean and tidy and has a great sized garden. As my Daughter is 9 Months old and crawling, the large back garden was fantastic and suited us really well.
The summer house is great for enjoying the view of the sea and surrounding landscape. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxed holiday in a peaceful location.
The Bungalow had everything we required and more, really well equipped.

“A neat and tidy and very-well located bungalow with a sea view”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Awel-y-mor is a small but neat and tidy and very-well located bungalow where we had a very nice relaxed and leisurely stay. The bungalow has all amenities, there are nice views out to sea, and this is a really good base for a holiday in the Llyn. Aberdaron village is surprisingly busy, and you will need to book if you intend to eat out there. The two pubs, the chip shop, the cafe, the bakery and the Spar are all excellent - the Ty Newydd is probably best for eating out, by a small margin, and the fish and chips from the chip shop are about the best we’ve ever had! The beaches to south and north are all very nice - Porthor/ Whistling Sands being the best for just lazing on the beach; but all the others are great for walking as of course is the coastal path. Other highlights for us this time were the trip to Caernarfon (about one hour), Plas-yn-rhiw (National Trust) and the Plas Glan-y-weddw gallery at Llanbedrog (fabulous cream teas!) We hope to be back next year!=

“Wonderful bungalow”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

Lovely cottage, in a great location with the most amazing views. The cottage was a good size with a wonderful garden over looking the bay, very well equipped with everything we could have asked for including sun loungers and a cosy sun house, perfect for having a glass of wine taking in the wonder view. Would definitely recommend the cottage which is a couple of minutes walk to the beach and 2 excellent pubs.
