Aberdyfi / Aberdovey
The picturesque harbour village of Aberdyfi / Aberdovey is renowned for its mild climate, sandy beaches, sailing and a championship 18-hole links golf course (rated in the UK's top 100). The village is often referred to as “an artist's paradise” with its pastel-coloured cottages, small shops, inns and excellent restaurants which specialise in local seafood, all helping to create a relaxed welcoming atmosphere.
Aberdyfi / Aberdovey boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with four miles of golden sand-dune backed shoreline running north to Tywyn, home of the world-famous Talyllyn narrow gauge Steam Railway, crab fishing and the famous Dyfi Donkeys. The beaches are popular with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen while the estuary attracts a wide range of water sports enthusiasts.
The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complemented by the charm of the Dyfi, Dysynni and Tal y Llyn valleys nearby. An ideal area for walkers, climbers and wildlife watchers, and a wonderful all-year-round location.

Comments from the Visitors' Book
We have had an amazing time here, which started with your welcome!! The minute we walked through the door we feet relaxed and at home. We love all the décor and pictures – such a lovely place. The sun has shone all week, and we have had many early morning and evening walks. We enjoyed the food at the Salt Mash Kitchen, Tywyn, and Medina here on the front for a good coffee and great cakes! We will be back – no doubt about it!!
A well-equipped, comfortable apartment with wonderful sea views. Weather has been perfect for getting out and about – enjoyable visits to Powys Castle, Barmouth, Taly y Llyn railway and CAT
