Property code: DY038

An appealing, waterside holiday home, opposite a small beach and looking out over the River Dyfi in the Welsh seaside village of Aberdyfi, within Snowdonia National Park.

Lose yourselves in the views over the Dyfi Estuary when you stay at this four-bedroom cottage in Aberdyfi. Sleeping up to eight guests, and also welcoming one dog, the four-storey property suits an extended family or two families seeking a Welsh break together. Wander less than 500 metres to the village’s main, 3-mile long sandy beach, where you can swim, surf and go paddle boarding. Pick up the Welsh Coast Path and walk 4 miles to Tywyn, looking out for dolphins and porpoises in Cardigan Bay as you go. Head 10 miles into Snowdonia to see the picturesque Dolgoch Falls.

Climb four steps up and enter to find bright and airy accommodation. Discover a lounge/diner, where you can relax in comfort together after your fun days out and take in the views through the bay window. Settle on the sofas to watch a film on the TV or DVD player or sit round the table to enjoy a game of cards together. Wander through into the kitchen, with its electric oven and hob, microwave, washing machine, fridge, dishwasher, toaster and kettle, to make hearty meals for your party. Find an additional fridge in the cupboard under the stairs. Dine together in style at the long table in the dining room. Venture up to the first floor to find a second lounge, also with a magnificent outlook. Enjoy something different on the DVD player or TV up here. A twin bedroom is also on this floor. Continue to the second floor to lay your head in either a twin bedroom, or a double, which looks out over the water. The family bathroom, with bath, separate WC and handbasin, is also on this level. Follow the steep, cottage-style stairs up to the fourth floor to discover another double bedroom, with small WC. This beautiful room has sloped ceilings and low beams. Please note, there is also a raised beam along the floor.

There is a small rear yard at the cottage – please note it is not enclosed. Cross the road to the narrow beach to sit out in the sunshine. There is no parking at the property but a pass for the pay and display car parks of Aberdyfi is provided.

A really lovely period house and in a great location, stunning views across the Dyfi. The two living rooms are cosy and beautifully decorated. If you have not visited Aberdyfi before you are in for a treat, and this is a great base. It does need updating in places, the kitchen is very small considering the place sleeps eight, quite a contrast to thRead moree large rooms and high ceilings in the rest of the property. Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
