Awel-For (Sea-Breeze) is a charming little fisherman's cottage 150 yards from the beach at Llansantffraed, Llanon in West Wales. The cottage sits virtually in the shadow of the historic Llansantffraed Church and on a dead-end road next to the river making it a quiet and peaceful location.
Awel-For is a very romantic cottage, you can come home from a lovely day out to an open log fire and roll-top bath.
The cottage is perfectly kept inside and out. There is a shingle beach near the cottage and you'll often find you get the whole beach to yourselves. The cottage is in a lovely sleepy white washed village and is an ideal location for walks or a base to explore the beautiful local beaches and area. There is a Grocery Shop, Butcher Shop a fish and chip shop, a newly refurbishes pub/restaurant and a local museum cottage all within 10 minutes walk. The beautiful Harbor town of Aberaeron is just 4 miles away with its many lovely restaurants and bars, taxis and regular bus service available.
There are fabulous walks in and around the area, including the costal paths.
NEW: Decking with Hot Tub fitted at the back of Awel-For cottage, with views to the sea, river and church. Hot Tub robes will be provided.
