Lay down your anchor in this attractive cottage in West Wales that’s thoughtfully equipped, taking to the sea for adventures by boat or tackling the coastal path on foot.

This traditional cottage sleeps five and is perched at the heart of charming Aberdovey close to a range of shops, galleries and eateries. Wander down to the harbour and watch the boats, perhaps arranging a day of sailing or some fun water sports activities such as paddleboarding and windsurfing. Crabbing is a popular pastime from the jetty, and the glorious sandy beach is a sheer treat for building sandcastles. Your handy location means you could soon be discovering the diverse landscape of Snowdonia National Park and the Ceredigion Coastline, choosing between mountain ranges and rugged stretches of coast path for your daily dose of scenic walks. Aberdovey is also renowned for its 18-hole championship golf course, a must for both the experienced and amateur golfer.

Compact yet cosy with homely extra touches including underfloor heating downstairs and in the first-floor bathroom, the cottage has an underlying nautical-themed decor and is well suited to couples, small families and friendship groups. Navigate the two steps leading up to the property and head through the stable-style door, preparing to relax and unwind in the open-plan kitchen/diner. There are deep sofas, snug armchairs and an electric coal-effect fire, ideal for snuggling on chilly evenings whilst you’re being entertained by the TV with Netflix and Bluetooth BOSE speaker. There’s a dining table for social suppers, and a narrow archway reveals the compact kitchen that’s equipped with everything you need to prepare meals and take care of the clean-up operation afterwards. There is an electric oven and grill, gas hob, fridge, freezer, slimline dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer and De’Longhi cappuccino/latte maker. The stairs are steep and have a fixed stair gate attached and lead up to the first-floor landing that has wooden floorboards and a single beam overhead. The first bedroom features a double bed, bedroom furniture and built-in storage, finished with fresh decor and careful lighting. Along from here, you’ll also find the bathroom, an elegant room with a shower over the bath and WC. The remaining bedrooms are at the top of another steep flight of stairs, be sure to mind your head as you climb them. You’ll be rewarded with two pretty bedrooms – one small single room with simple hanging space for clothes and bedroom furniture, and a double bedroom with built-in storage.

There may not be a dedicated outside space for your abode, but on warm mornings there is a small bench immediately outside your front door that’s ideal for sipping your coffee and watching the world go by. A short 0.5-mile walk will bring you to the beach and Aberdovey’s array of cafes, pubs and restaurants. A permit is provided for one car to use in one of the nearby car parks.

This is pleasant cottage in a great location in Aberdovey, handy for restaurants, pubs, beach and walks. It is on three floors with a rather tight stairs, with three bedrooms, ideal for families. Modern amenities including under-floor heating and smart TV were appreciated.

Lovely home for a family, the house itself had plenty of space and everything you need to have a nice comfortable stay. 3 double beds and a nice warm shower, cant go wrong really. We used the house as a base which was perfect for us! while staying in Aberdovey we visited most the towns up and down the coast including some parts of snowdonia nationaRead morel park and the house was perfectly situated for us to come back unwind and relax after some long days exploring. 100% value for money.

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.
