Property code: DY031

Detached barn conversion offering pleasant accommodation for couples and small groups just 3 miles from beautiful Aberdyfi with its beach, harbour and multiple restaurants.

Escape to the southern tip of Snowdonia National Park and embrace a holiday characterised by long rambles, spectacular views and exciting opportunities for activities on land and in the water. This attractive stone barn sleeps four and is located just 3 miles from Aberdyfi, a delightful seaside village popular amongst families and couples alike. Whether you are lured by the excellent walks where the mountains meet the sea at the mouth of the River Dyfi or the excitement of the beach, there really is something for everyone here. For the white-knuckle thrill-seekers, there are water sports galore including windsurfing, sailing and paddleboarding, but you’ll also be able to adopt a quieter pace and tee off at the 18-hole championship golf course if you prefer.

Climb up the steps and cross the threshold, stepping through the stone exterior ready to unwind. You’ll discover a spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with high vaulted ceilings and timber beams. Slate tiling underfoot and glimpses of exposed stonework, together with the wood burner, create a cosy ambience for snuggling up on the sofas. Watch your favourite films on the TV or break open a pack of cards for some leisurely entertainment before supper. The kitchen area has an electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave and a fridge/freezer, and there’s a compact dining table for feasting together. In terms of practicality, the utility room is equipped with some useful drying space alongside a washer/dryer. There is a shower room with a walk-in shower and WC, and there is a separate WC too. The two bedrooms are a pleasant sight when you are weary from your day - the first is a homely and inviting ground-floor bedroom with a double bed, bedroom furniture and an oak dressing table. Accessed via a set of stairs, the second bedroom is mezzanine-style with two small 2ft 6” beds, built-in storage and bedroom furniture, as well as a TV for a bonus treat. Please take care when choosing beds, one of the twin beds is positioned next to the bannister that is open to the stairs.

Outside, the garden is a delightful spot to sip your first coffee of the day whilst you admire the mature trees and shrubs. The ornamental pond adds an extra sense of relaxation, and you may be lucky enough to see some of the resident wildlife flitting across it. Off-road parking is available for two cars.

Great little cottage with a pretty garden and good facilities. Would recommend for two adults wanting to explore the area. Management team were very quick to respond when we needed them and we really enjoyed our stay. Maps on the wall were very helpful! Youd need transport as walking along the main road is dangerous with no pavement. Lots to do andRead more see in the area. Hide

Lovely property, catered for all our needs. Location is ideal, away from all the hustle and bustle of other tourists , but close enough to all amenities. A real reclusive get away. Other reviews noted it being close to the road with a train track opposite. We didnt find this any problem with traffic passing as this was not continuous, and as for thRead moree train it was a 2 carriage rattler that passed a few times a day, with the view across the estuary, this just added charm to the property.

Lovely little cottage with everything you need. If you are taking a dog be aware that there are no pavements on the road that the cottage is on so walking the dog is a bit dangerous with the fast traffic Everything else was perfect and Aberdovey is beautiful

One of the cupboards in the kitchen requires adjustment to the hinges. The clock did not work. Neither were an issue for us. The garden pond needs some attention.

A lovely cottage in a great location. It is quite close to the road as others have mentioned, and the train tracks, but it always quietened down in the evenings. The log burner was lovely and we used it quite a bit as we couldn't get one of the heaters to work. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds lovely and comfortable. The garden was great Read morefor our dog, although there is a couple of places a small dog might be able to get through. The view of the estuary is stunning! Hide

This a lovely property, well maintained and with views over the Dovey estuary. It catches the sun for most of the day. It is on a relatively busy road, but the traffic did not bother us

The cottage is five minutes away from Aberdovey. The barn conversion has been nicely done. Secure garden was great for the dog with nice views across the estuary. The cottage is comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen. There is road noise, but I did not find it a problem. Bed covers inadequate, this needs to be addressed.

Another wonderful stay back in Aberdovey. Can thoroughly recommend this property as it has all the comforts one can wish for and within easy reach of amazing beaches and countryside. As other residents have commented - it is near a main road and railway line but this did not spoil any part of our break as the noise is minimal and the perimeter is sRead moreecure enough to allow any dog or small child to wander safely.

As we were aware of it the traffic noise was not a problem but it maybe in summer. Heating from the log burner was good in the main room . Maybe not a good property for a family or person with poor mobility. We had a pleasant 3 day stay & visited several places of interest. Can recommend the tour of the CAT at Machynlleth.
