This attractive cottage is ideally placed for couples and small groups to explore the Ceredigion Heritage Coast, placing you close to fantastic beaches famed for their water sports and scenery.

Situated within walking distance of Aberdovey’s bustling streets yet far enough removed for privacy, this traditional fisherman’s cottage is an idyllic retreat for up to four guests. The beach awaits just a 0.5-mile walk away, boasting a pretty jetty where you can try your hand at crabbing, or why not arrange to try water sports during your stay? Aberdovey is renowned for its sailing opportunities, or for the keen golfers, the 18-hole championship golf course is just 0.5 miles away too. For walkers, you’ll have the scenic coastal path to enjoy, but no visit is complete without admiring the varied wildlife at the Ynys-hir RSPB reserve. There’s so much to keep you entertained and when it is time to satisfy your appetite, there are plenty of cafes, bistros, and restaurants to choose from.

Step through the entrance to find the bright and welcoming lounge/diner, a cheerful living space that has been thoughtfully furnished with two deep sofas, a coffee table and a compact dining table with ample seating for four. There is a TV for watching films, but the bookshelves above have lots of interesting books for you to leaf through armed with a cup of tea. On chilly evenings, the flame-effect gas fire is a thoughtful addition that adds further character along with the original beams overhead. A doorway leads through to the galley-style kitchen which also features timber beams and tiled flooring. Wooden worktops, stylish units and lots of gadgets provide all the essentials for whipping up delicious meals and clearing away afterwards including an electric combi oven and hob, a fridge, freezer, dishwasher. There’s also a handy cloakroom/utility area with a washing machine, plus a lobby area with hanging space for storing coats. Steep and open-sided stairs lead up to a narrow hallway that reveals the bedrooms, both neat yet comfortable with double beds and simple storage. Completing the property is a useful bathroom with a shower over the bath and a WC.

On arrival, you’ll be immediately greeted by the pleasant outdoor space when you climb up the two steps and take a moment to rest at the garden furniture. This space isn’t enclosed, but on warm evenings you’ll be able to unwind with your favourite drink and dine alfresco. A permit is supplied for one car to use at one of the nearby car parks.

Mid-West Wales is a land full of green hills and clear seas. With the spine of the Cambrian Mountains to the east and the hidden coves of the Ceredigion coastline carving out marvellous openings all along the western shoreline, it’s a mecca for those who crave outstanding natural surroundings. There are also charming villages and quaint seaside towns dotted here and there, giving you the chance to try a regional delicacy or speak to some friendly locals.

A thriving harbour resort just within the Snowdonia National Park boundaries, Aberdovey, meaning river mouth, also lies inside Wales’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Dyfi Biosphere. With Cader Idris looming in the distance, Aberdovey enjoys a complementary fusion of dense woodland and a golden beach where the River Dyfi meets Cardigan Bay.

Also near the River Dyfi are Pennal and Cwrt, two villages which lie on the River Sychan, which feeds the River Dyfi. Small in size but with natural grandeur, these villages have walks which provide magnificent vistas and if you’re lucky, you may even spot wild otters holding hands by the river’s edge.

Moving away from the river, you can follow the ‘Happy Valley’ which leads all the way to Tywyn. You’ll pass scenic splendour as the road twists and turns past the ‘Bearded Lake’. Tywyn is a beautiful seaside base for all types of excursions. Stroll the large, sandy beach or visit the Talyllyn Railway, that journeys deep into the hills.

We have a handpicked collection of self-catering properties along southern Snowdonia on the banks of the Dyfi Estuary. Whether it’s Aberdovey, Pennal and Cwrt or Tywyn, we’ve got dog-friendly, large, luxury and coastal accommodation to suit your needs.
