Elegant yet family-friendly townhouse overlooking the seafront, excellent abode for up to eight guests seeking a traditional seaside holiday with beach games, crabbing and seaside fare.

Beautiful Aberdovey is a fantastic destination for a seaside holiday with all the trimmings, whether you envisage lazy days on the beach building sandcastles, crabbing off the jetty and tucking into ice cream, or you foresee a more active holiday filled with adventures. Water sports such as paddleboarding, windsurfing and sailing are all possible, and the local area is renowned for its 18-hole championship golf course. Follow winding trails along the River Dyfi and challenge your inner adrenaline enthusiast with rambles through stunning mountain ranges or soak up the views as you amble along the popular coast path. However you spend your days, your impressive accommodation is the perfect haven to return to for hearty meals and relaxing with your loved ones.

Spread across four levels and boasting a cheerful exterior, this attractive townhouse overlooks the bustling seafront yet offers a comfortable retreat for large families. Step inside via the entrance hall, dusting off your sandy shoes, ready to relax. The kitchen/dining room is tastefully finished with tiled flooring and fresh decor, offering a dining table and seating in the bay window for settling down to enjoy family meals. The kitchen features an electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher and microwave for rustling up delicious meals and clearing away afterwards, and an archway leads through to the utility room. Equipped with a fridge/freezer, a washing machine and a tumble dryer, this room has ample drying space and benefits from an additional doorway leading out to an alleyway for easy access. The first flight of stairs reveals a handy shower room with a shower and WC and a separate WC to save any squabbles over bathroom queues. Three further steps lead up to the first floor where you will discover a marvellous living room that’s perfectly tailored to socialising with its comfortable sofas, TV, DVD, two SONOS Bluetooth speakers and seating in the bay windows. Prepare to watch your favourite films over a bowl of buttery popcorn, or simply sit down by the window and gaze out to sea. The first of the four bedrooms is also on this level, a pretty twin room with bedside storage and a small cupboard. The landing also features a rear door that is for emergency access only. Upstairs, the second floor reveals an elegant family bathroom with a bath, a WC and separate walk-in shower for a spot of pampering, and a double bedroom with useful storage and impressive views. Take care when ascending the next set of stairs due to the limited handrails, but the climb is well worth it when you reach the two remaining bedrooms at the top of the house. The first is a twin room with bedroom furniture, and the second is a double with a TV and storage.

There may not be a private outside space, but you are excellently located for the beach as well as Aberdovey’s array of amenities including a selection of shops and a public green immediately below the property, A permit is provided for one car to use in the nearby ‘Pay & display’ car parks.

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.
