Great location, homely and comfortable, well equipped.
2 families of 4 weren't crowded at all in Awelon. Its homely, comfortable, well-equipped and even in August, the wood burning stove came in handy in the evening.
Great location, 2 pubs literally on the doorstep, shop over the road for essentials (very expensive!), Porthmadoc only a 10 minute walk away through woodland or 5 minutes in the car.
With so many great places to visit within an hour's drive, this cottage did have it all for us, location and comfort. Highly recommended.
Great Little House
Overall this was a great house. Its showing its age a little around the edges and needs some improvement works, especially round the bathroom areas. But don't let the rustic nature put you off, it was great for a weekend stay and we all enjoyed the house. Also, the pub next door does a great breakfast.
Awelon is a lovely property, but had to mop kitchen floor , due to tea stains.
Overall a great stay to visit my family and do some reminiscing with the next generation, will hopefully book again next year.
Lovely warm home from home!
With a three generation, eight member family coming together for a weeks holiday we found Awelon the perfect base for hiking (us), the coast (my parents) and all the other activities snowdonia has to offer such as the railways and Zipworld activities (the kids). The house was warm and comfortable with plenty of room for us all to socialise together and find our own space, with the kids overjoyed with the discovery of all the toys, books and dvds about the place. Tremadog square with a coulple of friendly pubs is a bonus and only a short walk into Portmadog where you can easily find shops, Purple Moose brewery pub (fab beer!) and the steam railways - an important element to our holiday as my Dad helped to design bridges and build the Ffestiniog years back.
In all a lovely weeks holiday in a comfortable and welcoming home. I hope we'll be back one day!
McGonagle Clossick visit to Tremadog Awelon
We had a thoroughly enjoyable family holiday of three generations. The house was very spacious and ideal for our needs there was plenty of room for the children to play games of cards and scrabble and television for the inevitable early mornings with a three and five year old. Our eldest granddaughter loved being able to escape her brother by going up to the top floor room. The dining room was great as we are firm believers of all sitting down together to eat our meals the large table and chairs made this possible.
We ate out a couple of times at the Golden Fleece very handy to walk to and they were very accommodating. We went into Porthmadog a couple of times and the short cut through the woods was very interesting lots of muddy puddles and we spotted many squirrels. I had purchased a town trail of Porthmadog that was very taxing but we saw parts of the town never seen before including the nature reserve with its many birds. The carrot to get them round was a visit to Cadwalladas for the biggest ice cream. We also had a days in Portmerion, Criccieth and the Beacon climbing center and an afternoon on the beach at Borth-y-Guest. There is no shortage of things to do in the area.
The house was very tastefully set out with some lovely prints on the walls and unusual pieces of furniture. The house could have done with a sweeping broom! the natty hand cleaner for crumbs was OK but not good on grandma' s knees!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already recommended the property to other members of our family.
Lovely cottage; great location.
We loved our stay at Awelon cottage near Porthmadaog. There were a couple of pubs a stones' throw away, it provided us with easy access to Snowdon and the facilities at the cottage were just what we needed. (The BBQ was a nice touch.) We would recommend it to others wanting to explore North West Wales.
The Snowdonia National Park is on your doorstep offering a magnificent experience for walking, climbing or just enjoying the stunning scenery. It offers numerous cycling and mountain bike trails.

This beautiful harbour town offers an array of shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs and tearooms. Both the Ffestiniog Railway and the Welsh Highland Railway can be boarded here. Visit the Maritime Museum and the Motor Museum. Enjoy a round of golf at Porthmadog Links Golf Club or turn your hand to sailing with the Porthmadog Sailing Club. Portmeirion is an Italian fairytale village with colourful cottages, shops and cafes standing on a cliff top overlooking Cardigan Bay. It is surrounded by acres of woodlands and miles of beautiful sandy beaches. It is famous for it's pottery and is also the location where The Prisoner was filmed. Borth-y-Gest is a pretty Victorian village with colourful houses lining the promenade, just 5 minutes outside of Porthmadog. Walk from the village along the well maintained coastal path leading to several beautiful beaches and coves. Further along and you stumble across Black Rock Sands with its long stretch of sandy beach which if you adhere to the 10 mph speed limit you can even drive your car on! Castles; Criccieth and Harlech both cliff top medieval castles are worth a visit. Also further afield is Caernarfon Castle.
