Property code: DY042

A beautifully renovated and light-filled townhouse, enjoying views across the bay, set in the Welsh coastal village of Aberdyfi, close to the village’s long sandy beach.

Escape with your friends and family to this inviting holiday home set right on the waterfront in the village of Aberdyfi. Gaze out across the water towards Cardigan Bay from the four-bedroom townhouse, which sleeps up to eight guests and is a great family retreat. Stroll less than 500 metres to reach the beautiful open sands of Aberdyfi, where you can swim, surf and paddle board. Go fishing here too or have a go at crabbing from the jetty. Dine out and shop for local provisions. Pick up the Welsh Coast Path from the village and attempt the 4-mile stretch to Tywyn or the 12-mile section to Llwyngwril. Make the most of your position on the edge of Snowdonia National Park to visit beauty spots such as Dolgoch Falls, 9.5 miles away.

Climb the steps up to the front door of the holiday home and step straight into the generous lounge. Recline on the soft seating in this light-filled space in front of the Smart LCD TV for a while. Wander on through into the spacious, farmhouse-style kitchen/diner to make a cup of fresh coffee in the machine or to whip up a tasty meal with the fresh produce you have bought in Aberdyfi. Find you have an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle and coffee machine. Lay the large table and call everyone through to eat. There is also a utility room on this level, with washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge/freezer. Venture upstairs to find the family bathroom, featuring a bath with shower above, separate shower, handbasin and WC. Take a few more stairs up to discover three of the bedrooms. These include two doubles, both looking towards the sea, and a bunk bedroom, with 3ft beds to suit children. Climb another set of stairs up to a sumptuous, king-size room, with sloping ceilings and beams, and far-reaching views. There is an en-suite shower room, with WC and some restricted head-height up here too.

Enjoy the fresh air and sea breeze from either the front patio or rear courtyard garden. Take in the views across the water from the benches at the front. Climb the stairs up to the courtyard garden at the back to light the BBQ in the evening.

We had a fantastic stay in Bodafon and a wonderful week in Aberdovey. Guy and Carla were very welcoming hosts and the property is in an ideal spot within easy walking distance of the beach and has great views of the estuary from all rooms and the terrace at the front of the property. The beds are very comfortable and the showers are very good/powerRead moreful. It is well equipped and the patio at the rear of the property is a real sun trap. Great base to explore Aberdovey and surrounding area. Hide

Bodafon is a wonderful place to stay Tastefully decorated, very well equipped and the location is perfect. We loved the views of the estuary from the bedroom windows (the top bedroom is HUGE!) and to have a courtyard area in the back as well as benches in the front meant we could take drinks outside in the evenings. Just a few minutes from pubs andRead more shops and the main beach which is big and sandy. The owners are very friendly and on hand if you need anything. Can't recommend highly enough! Hide

Location

Map
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.
