Property code: DY026

Overlooking Aberdovey’s 4-mile stretch of beach, this grand townhouse is a fantastic choice for large group gatherings and is well positioned for a traditional seaside holiday.

Studded amongst a row of similar pastel properties, this four-storey property offers a welcome retreat after exploring the surrounding coast and countryside. Tailor your holiday to surprise and delight your entire group, entertaining the youngest members first with lazy days building sandcastles, crabbing from the jetty and enjoying wildlife-spotting from the water. Thrill-seekers will be spoiled for choice with which activity to try first, taking to the water by boat or trying stand-up paddleboarding. The coast path and easy access to Snowdonia National Park is a must for walkers of all abilities, but those who prefer a quieter pace can simply browse the independent selection of shops, pop into the galleries and sample mouthwatering tea and cake in a cafe.

Return from the beach and cast aside your sandy shoes as you climb the steps and head inside to find an elegant interior characterised by wooden flooring, exposed stone and tasteful furniture. The lounge area is finished with a slight contemporary twist, inviting you to sink back into the sofas to watch TV or enjoy a book from the comfort of the armchair. There’s further seating to the rear of the room along with a table with ample space for eight, and completing the lounge/diner is a stone fireplace that houses the open fire for cosy evenings. A doorway reveals the country cottage-style kitchen. You’ll have everything you need to whip up hearty meals and clear away afterwards thanks to the electric oven and hob, fridge with three-drawer freezer, dishwasher, microwave and Krups coffee machine, and there is also a washer/dryer for all your laundry needs. There is an extendable dining table which seats ten for your family meals. The pine larder stores a whole host of useful items including cutlery. A short flight of stairs descends to the lower ground floor where you’ll discover a pretty twin bedroom with an en-suite. This room is a bonus if you have teenagers in tow as it also features a living area with a TV and a PS4, as well as additional storage space. Back upstairs, climb up another flight of stairs to reach the first-floor bedrooms, one of which is a super-king-size room complete with an en-suite bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC. The other bedroom is a single bedroom, an elegant space finished with an en-suite walk-in shower and WC alongside handy storage and bedside tables. The second-floor bedroom continues along the same vein and is a sheer treat with a king-size bed and sink, and a fabulous bathroom with WC where you can soak in the roll-top bath or indulge in a separate shower. Finally, the third floor is home to the remaining bedroom – a stylish twin offering stunning views, a TV and DVD. The en-suite bathroom boasts a roll-top bath, separate shower and WC.

There may not be a private outside space, but you are excellently located for the beach as well as Aberdovey’s array of amenities. A permit is provided for two cars to use in the nearby ‘Pay & display’ car parks.

What a beautiful house and amazing location. Three generations loved our holiday together and there was something for everyone to do. Could not have asked for a better place to spend our summer break.

A well presented comfortable base, right at the beachfront of Aberdovey. We had a great time and would definitely come again if we had the same group size.

A lovely place to relax and unwind. The views of the beach are stunning. The bedrooms are VERY spacious and comfortable. The great room gave us all plenty of space to enjoy meals and relax together as a family. The basement room was a great breakout space. The perfect property for an intergenerational gathering of extended family.
