Property code: DY033

Nestled in an elevated position overlooking the Dyfi Estuary, this stone hideaway enjoys a tranquil woodland setting yet is just 3 miles from Aberdovey’s multiple attractions.

This cosy property is studded amongst ancient woodland that once formed part of the Welsh Celtic Rainforest, offering a tranquil base for up to six guests. Whether you are seeking a homely retreat for a special family holiday or a quiet space to unwind with friends, you’ll soon find yourself navigating the spectacular landscape that the Snowdonia National Park is famous for. You’ll be positioned just above the Roman encampment of Frongoch, an interesting place to visit and commemorate the events that took place last century. Discover a myriad of winding trails leading through mountain ranges and along the banks of the River Dyfi, visiting the beautiful village of Aberdovey to enjoy the beach and many attractions this village is best known for.

Enter via the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner to find a delightful open-plan living space characterised by slate floors, high vaulted ceilings and rustic wooden beams. There’s a chic farmhouse-style kitchen equipped with an electric oven, halogen hob, under-counter fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, plus a Nespresso Krupps coffee maker and milk heater for an extra treat. Rustle up delicious meals using local ingredients, then pull up one of the quirky chairs to eat around the table. Two arched doorways reveal the lounge in all its hygge-esque charm thanks to the exposed stone wall, large patio doors, wood burner (pellets only) and wooden floors. Snuggle up under a blanket on the deep sofas, switch on the TV or rummage through the games drawer to choose your evening entertainment. Back through to the entrance, you’ll find a shower room with a stepped-access walk-in shower and WC and a separate WC. The first bedroom is also located here with its king-size bed, and it is excellent for accessibility as it has a large sliding door to the kitchen, a handy option should you need wider access. Steep open-tread stairs ascend to the mezzanine landing with its seating area. You’ll also discover a pretty bedroom with a double bed, sloped ceiling and built-in storage. A separate annexe can be found adjacent to the property, a delightfully private spot with a double bed and an en-suite shower room and WC.

Outside, the gravelled terrace sweeps around the perimeter of the property and is shaded by mature trees. It is still a suntrap on warm afternoons, and you’ll revel in the impressive vistas across the Plynlimon mountains and Dyfi estuary from the south-facing viewing point above the property. Off-road parking is available for up to four cars.

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.
