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.

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

The house is beautiful! The decor is very stylish and the kitchen has everything you would need. the views are stunning and it's ideal for walking, a short step to the beach or to any of the delicious restaurants in town. I stayed with a group of friends but I can't wait to go back and stay with my family, I know they'll adore it too! I would wholeheartedly recommend this stunning house - definitely one of the nicest holiday homes I've ever stayed in.  

The house is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much for letting us stay

We had a very happy stay in Sarah and Andrew's holiday home. It was a wonderful space for a family gathering. The house was beautifully decorated and the beds were so comfortable! We loved walking on the beach or taking a picnic up on the hills. It's a perfect location for exploring. Thank you for having us, we will definitely return. 

We had the most brilliant stay. The house provided a really lovely base for our walking holiday with plenty of bathrooms and comfortable beds. We had the top bedroom which provides stunning views over the estuary. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped and it really is a home from home. We couldn't have found a better place for our holiday. 

Thank you for a lovely week in your well-equipped house with a nice atmosphere and the most beautiful view!!!
