Offering light, welcoming and cosy accommodation for four guests, this relaxing holiday cottage is set in a lovely spot near the mouth of the Dyfi Estuary as it flows into the sea.

Situated just round the corner from the heart of the picturesque village of Aberdyfi (also known as Aberdovey), the cottage is a lovely base for families exploring the southern part of the breathtaking Snowdonia National Park. The cottage is ideally situated for experiencing Aberdyfi, with a fantastic variety of pubs, shops, cafes and restaurants just a few hundred metres away. Set along the north shore of the River Dyfi, Aberdyfi is also known for its championship golf course and for the Old Roman Road leading to Picnic Island. The beach is a short stroll from the door and leads along Cardigan Bay to the bustling town of Tywyn (4.5 miles) which is home to a vintage cinema and steam railway.

The front door opens directly into the bright open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which provides a delightful living area for everyone to gather in. The light and welcoming lounge is a perfect space in which to unwind at the end of a wonderful day out, and features a TV, DVD player and two sofas so you can snuggle up and enjoy a movie. The dining table is ideal for gathering together and sharing a fantastic family meal which you can prepare in the fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a wide range of equipment including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, washer/dryer, fridge and freezer. Steep, angled cottage-style stairs lead up to the first floor where you will find the two colourful, cheerful and cosy bedrooms. The first is a double room with plenty of storage space, and the second is a charming bunk bedroom. There’s also a shower room complete with a shower and WC.

A free car pass is provided, allowing free car parking in the pay and display car parks of Aberdyfi. The nearest car park is just 200 metres away, next to the beach.

Incredibly good value for money. Ideally located to explore the village and fabulous beach. Lots of lovely walks on the doorstep. Several restaurants, cafes and bars in the village.

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.
