  • A cosy holiday apartment near the sandy Aberdyfi Beach
  • Within easy reach of the village’s cafes, restaurants and pubs
  • Providing a great base for exploring the southern part of Snowdonia
Property code: DY017

Occupying two floors above a seafront ice cream and sweet shop, this light and airy apartment makes a lovely central holiday home for couples and families enjoying this charming seaside spot.

The picturesque seaside village of Aberdyfi (also known as Aberdovey) is known for its colourful pastel buildings and its wonderful long sandy beach which curves up along the coast of Cardigan Bay and round to the bustling coastal town of Tywyn (4 miles). This pretty apartment is set in a fabulous central position just above one of Aberdyfi’s more popular shops selling an array of sweets and ice creams. The beach is just a short stroll away, and there are plenty of great pubs, cafes, shops and restaurants along the seafront. Featuring its own championship golf course, Aberdyfi is also a fantastic base for a range of activities along the River Dyfi including sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, nature spotting and fishing.

The apartment is accessed via the main sweet shop entrance, with stairs leading up to the living accommodation on the first floor. Entering the apartment, the pretty lounge/diner makes a lovely, cosy and welcoming space to unwind in at the end of a great day out. The windows overlook the harbour green and the estuary beyond, providing a lovely space to sit back and watch the world go by. The lounge has two sofas, a feature gas fire, TV and DVD so you can watch a favourite film in the evening. Set by the window, the dining area is a relaxing space to share a family meal which you can rustle up in the small galley-style kitchen where you will find a range of equipment including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave and a fridge with a small ice compartment. The first floor features the shower room. The shower room also houses the washing machine/dryer. The separate WC is just at the top of the first-floor stairs. Further stairs lead up to the second floor where there are two delightful bedrooms: the double bedroom which overlooks the estuary, and a bunk bedroom for children to the rear of the property.

Guests staying at the apartment will be provided with a free car pass which can be used in the pay and display car parks throughout Aberdyfi. The nearest car park is just 200 metres away by the beach.

Lovely spot right on the seafront. It was spotlessly clean but is looking a bit tired and could do with a few minor renovations

The location is amazing. The views are excellent. Parking pass a great saver. The bed was too firm for me so used pillows to compensate.

The view from the lounge and main bedroom is breathtaking. The apartment was just right for us. It was light, clean and very comfortable. Long stay parking was close by and convenient which was a concern when we booked. We used the local bus services on two days out and the neare bus stop was conveniently close by. The local restaurants, pubs and tRead moreakeways were very close and gave us a good choice. The ice cream from the shop on the ground floor was delicious. Hide

we have stayed here for the last 3 years and love the convenience of the location and the views from the lounge and bedroom. It is a bit shabby which is a shame but is very comfortable and we will probably come back next year, when hopefully we will be able to get the TV to work for us!
