Property code: DY010

This elegantly decorated and stylishly furnished apartment is set in a pretty spot on the shore of the Dyfi, and makes a relaxing holiday bolthole for a family exploring this lovely area.

Close to a charming local park and the Old Roman Road which leads you along to the delightful Picnic Island, this fantastic apartment is ideally situated along the foreshore of the Dyfi Estuary. Crossing the road you will reach a stony stretch of beach which makes a pleasant spot for a picnic or for spotting wildlife along the river. The apartment is on the outskirts of Aberdyfi (also known as Aberdovey) where you will find a championship golf course, some fabulous pubs and restaurants, and a glorious sandy beach which stretches for miles along Cardigan Bay to Tywyn (4 miles). Perfect for exploring the southern parts of the breathtaking Snowdonia National Park – local activities include sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and fishing.

A short flight of terraced external steps leads up and round to the entrance into this pretty south-facing apartment which occupies the first and second floors of the building. Stepping inside, the hallway features polished oak flooring and leads you through to the spacious and coolly decorated lounge/diner. This fresh and airy space is perfect for sitting back at the end of the day, watching a film on TV or taking in the views across the estuary. To the rear of the room there’s an inviting dining area perfect for gathering together for a family meal. A step leads down into the stylishly designed kitchen/diner which has a dishwasher, electric double oven and gas hob, microwave and fridge as well as an additional dining table and a handy breakfast table. The freezer and washing machine can be found in the utility room. There’s also a shower room with a shower and WC on this level, along with the first of the property’s three refreshing bedrooms: a light and cheerful twin room which is reached via a step down. Heading upstairs, the upper floor offers two cosy double bedrooms with plenty of storage space and views out over the river. You will also find an invigorating bathroom complete with underfloor heating, a shower over the bath and a WC.

Very well equipped and comfortable cottage. Love the location as just a little way from the heart of the town with a little beach opposite which is great for the dog first thing in the morning! The cottage is very clean and has everything you need. Have stayed twice and have booked again!

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.
