Property code: DY026

Overlooking Aberdovey’s 4-mile stretch of beach, this grand townhouse is a fantastic choice for large group gatherings and is well positioned for a traditional seaside holiday.

Studded amongst a row of similar pastel properties, this four-storey property offers a welcome retreat after exploring the surrounding coast and countryside. Tailor your holiday to surprise and delight your entire group, entertaining the youngest members first with lazy days building sandcastles, crabbing from the jetty and enjoying wildlife-spotting from the water. Thrill-seekers will be spoiled for choice with which activity to try first, taking to the water by boat or trying stand-up paddleboarding. The coast path and easy access to Snowdonia National Park is a must for walkers of all abilities, but those who prefer a quieter pace can simply browse the independent selection of shops, pop into the galleries and sample mouthwatering tea and cake in a cafe.

Return from the beach and cast aside your sandy shoes as you climb the steps and head inside to find an elegant interior characterised by wooden flooring, exposed stone and tasteful furniture. The lounge area is finished with a slight contemporary twist, inviting you to sink back into the sofas to watch TV or enjoy a book from the comfort of the armchair. There’s further seating to the rear of the room along with a table with ample space for eight, and completing the lounge/diner is a stone fireplace that houses the open fire for cosy evenings. A doorway reveals the country cottage-style kitchen. You’ll have everything you need to whip up hearty meals and clear away afterwards thanks to the electric oven and hob, fridge with three-drawer freezer, dishwasher, microwave and Krups coffee machine, and there is also a washer/dryer for all your laundry needs. There is an extendable dining table which seats ten for your family meals. The pine larder stores a whole host of useful items including cutlery. A short flight of stairs descends to the lower ground floor where you’ll discover a pretty twin bedroom with an en-suite. This room is a bonus if you have teenagers in tow as it also features a living area with a TV and a PS4, as well as additional storage space. Back upstairs, climb up another flight of stairs to reach the first-floor bedrooms, one of which is a super-king-size room complete with an en-suite bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC. The other bedroom is a single bedroom, an elegant space finished with an en-suite walk-in shower and WC alongside handy storage and bedside tables. The second-floor bedroom continues along the same vein and is a sheer treat with a king-size bed and sink, and a fabulous bathroom with WC where you can soak in the roll-top bath or indulge in a separate shower. Finally, the third floor is home to the remaining bedroom – a stylish twin offering stunning views, a TV and DVD. The en-suite bathroom boasts a roll-top bath, separate shower and WC.

There may not be a private outside space, but you are excellently located for the beach as well as Aberdovey’s array of amenities. A permit is provided for two cars to use in the nearby ‘Pay & display’ 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.
