  • Ideally situated above a fantastic local cafe
  • Perfect for exploring the beautiful Dyfi Estuary
Property code: DY004

Named after a galleon from the Spanish Armada which was stranded in Church Bay opposite the apartment, this bright, fresh and airy seafront property makes a lovely retreat for families and couples.

Enjoying a fantastic central position along the beautiful seafront, this refreshing apartment occupies two floors and makes a spacious and relaxing base for couples and families exploring the southern part of Snowdonia National Park. The quaint and historic seaside village of Aberdyfi (also known as Aberdovey) is known for its colourful buildings and glorious long sandy beach which curves around the coast of Cardigan Bay and up towards the picturesque resort of Tywyn. Aberdyfi offers a fantastic choice of friendly restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops, as well as its own championship golf course, and the Old Roman Road which leads to Picnic Island. Local activities on offer along the River Dyfi include sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, nature spotting and fishing.

Entering the property, a flight of steep cottage-style stairs curves up and leads you into the first-floor accommodation. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner provides a lovely, airy and welcoming living space, perfect for unwinding in at the end of a fantastic day. The lounge features plenty of seating, TV and DVD so you can snuggle up in the evening to watch a favourite film. The dining area is by the window, and the galley-style kitchen has a wide range of equipment including a dishwasher, under-counter fridge with small ice compartment, electric oven and hob, microwave and washer dryer. The first floor also has a stylish shower room complete with shower and WC. A further flight of stairs leads up to the second floor where you will find two coolly decorated and cosy bedrooms. To the front of the property is a double bedroom overlooking the estuary, and the charming twin room is to the rear. There’s also a handy second shower room complete with shower and WC.

French doors lead out from the kitchen to a small, decked area. Featuring a small bench, this is a pleasant spot for a morning coffee as you plan the day’s activities. A free car parking pass is provided, which can be used in Aberdyfi’s pay and display car parks. The nearest is just 200 metres away by the beach.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
