Property code: DY011

Situated on the cusp of Aberdovey, this homely abode boasts a lovely fire for chilly nights, but in warm weather, the raised garden is a treat for admiring the views.

This homely cottage sleeps four and is positioned close to the heart of Aberdovey with its iconic beach and array of pretty shops and eateries. The traditional harbour village is positioned on the northern reaches of the Dyfi estuary, surrounded by Snowdonia’s spectacular landscape yet also forming part of the Ceredigion Coastline. Embrace a seaside holiday with all the trimmings whether you are tucking into fish and chips at sunset or spending the day crabbing and building sandcastles. For a more active holiday, there’s a championship golf course, opportunities for water sports and an abundance of walks leading right from your doorstep.

Ascend the stone steps leading up into the property and head inside to find an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner characterised by beamed ceilings, wooden flooring and an open fireplace that houses a coal-effect gas fire. Natural light pours in through the double doors, revealing a glimpse of the bay beyond the patio. The rustic furniture comprises decorative storage for glassware and DVDs, and there is also a TV, DVD player and CD player for entertainment. Gather around the table for mealtimes, sampling excellent local fare obtained from Aberdovey’s impressive range of shops. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven, gas hob and fridge, and you’ll also have a handy utility cupboard that contains a freezer and washer/dryer. From here, steep stairs lead up to the first floor where you’ll discover your sleeping quarters. There are two bedrooms, one elegant double with sea views and storage and a delightful bunk bedroom suitable for two children or an adult. Please note that the cupboard in this room houses the boiler. Completing the property is a bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC.

Immediately outside is a suntrap patio equipped with a folding table and chairs. You’ll also have some comfortable canvas chairs available should you wish to borrow them. Across from the property is the Memorial Gardens, an open garden commemorating the heroes of WWII with mature shrubs leading down to a vast expanse of grass studded with benches for you to pause and admire the sea views before popping into the friendly pub. You’ll have your own private viewpoint to enjoy too, which is reached just a short walk away. Climb the shared access steps that run alongside a neighbouring property and up into the hillside to find a raised terrace and picnic area amongst sheltered woodland. Bring along a few treats and drinks and sit back to soak up the marvellous views of the estuary, Cambrian Mountains and the sea from the terrace. A permit is provided for one car to use in a nearby car park.

Loved it! Just what we needed, comfy and cosy. Beautiful, ever changing views. A short walk to the shops and pubs and an even shorter walk to the railway station to explore further afield! Would love to stay again.

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.
