Property code: DY033

Nestled in an elevated position overlooking the Dyfi Estuary, this stone hideaway enjoys a tranquil woodland setting yet is just 3 miles from Aberdovey’s multiple attractions.

This cosy property is studded amongst ancient woodland that once formed part of the Welsh Celtic Rainforest, offering a tranquil base for up to six guests. Whether you are seeking a homely retreat for a special family holiday or a quiet space to unwind with friends, you’ll soon find yourself navigating the spectacular landscape that the Snowdonia National Park is famous for. You’ll be positioned just above the Roman encampment of Frongoch, an interesting place to visit and commemorate the events that took place last century. Discover a myriad of winding trails leading through mountain ranges and along the banks of the River Dyfi, visiting the beautiful village of Aberdovey to enjoy the beach and many attractions this village is best known for.

Enter via the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner to find a delightful open-plan living space characterised by slate floors, high vaulted ceilings and rustic wooden beams. There’s a chic farmhouse-style kitchen equipped with an electric oven, microwave oven, halogen hob, under-counter fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, plus a Nespresso coffee machine and milk heater for an extra treat. Rustle up delicious meals using local ingredients, then pull up one of the quirky chairs to eat around the table. Two arched doorways reveal the lounge in all its hygge-esque charm thanks to the exposed stone wall, large patio doors, wood burner (pellets only) and wooden floors. Snuggle up under a blanket on the deep sofas, switch on the TV or rummage through the games drawer to choose your evening entertainment. Back through to the entrance, you’ll find a shower room with a stepped-access walk-in shower and WC and a separate WC. The first bedroom is also located here with its king-size bed, and it is excellent for accessibility as it has a large sliding door to the kitchen, a handy option should you need wider access. Steep open-tread stairs ascend to the mezzanine landing with its seating area. You’ll also discover a pretty bedroom with a double bed and a sloped ceiling. A separate annexe can be found adjacent to the property, a delightfully private spot with a double bed and an en-suite shower room and WC.

Outside, the gravelled terrace sweeps around the perimeter of the property and is shaded by mature trees. It is still a suntrap on warm afternoons, and you’ll revel in the impressive vistas across the Plynlimon mountains and Dyfi estuary from the south-facing viewing point above the property. Off-road parking is available for up to four cars.

  • 3 bedrooms – 1 king-size, 1 double with mezzanine area, 1 double located away from main house in annex

We had a fantastic half term family break in this beautiful cottage. The owners have thought of pretty much everything. Access is via a very steep track and on arrival you feel in the middle of nowhere surrounded by beautiful forest and views over the estuary. Beds super comfy, kitchen equipment fabulous. Great to all be together even at meal prep Read moretimes. Would definitely recommend the area, particularly the gorgeous old fashioned seaside town of Aberdyfi and nearby Machynlleth for shopping.

The property was lovely and set in an elavated quiet position. There was plenty of room for our party of five inside and with better weather we could have enjoyed the seating provided outside. I feel a few more essentials could have been provided such as hand wash, kitchen roll etc.

We have had a fabulous week in this cottage, it is a beautiful location and really comfortable but just to be aware the road that leads to the cottage is not great, it is not a tarmac road, and there are pot holes, loose stone and tight corners.

The Aberdyfy area is beautiful and the small town and beach are excellent. Lovely house for a weeks stay. Very secluded spot. It was useful having the annexe for some of the party to sleep in. The property is at the end of a steep drive and disappointingly there is no opportunity for walking direct from the property. Local recommendations - Coast DRead moreeli and Dinning, The Black Lion at Derwenlas. Be aware Wales seems to be closed on Mondays :-) - every restaurant and pub we tried was closed! Hide
