Detached barn conversion offering a peaceful retreat for couples and small groups just 3 miles from beautiful Aberdyfi with its beach, harbour and multiple restaurants.

Escape to the southern tip of Snowdonia National Park and embrace a holiday characterised by long rambles, spectacular views and exciting opportunities for activities on land and in the water. This attractive stone barn sleeps four and is located just 3 miles from Aberdyfi, a delightful seaside village popular amongst families and couples alike. Whether you are lured by the excellent walks where the mountains meet the sea at the mouth of the River Dyfi or the excitement of the beach, there really is something for everyone here. For the white-knuckle thrill-seekers, there are water sports galore including windsurfing, sailing and paddleboarding, but you’ll also be able to adopt a quieter pace and tee off at the 18-hole championship golf course if you prefer.

Climb up the steps and cross the threshold, stepping through the stone exterior ready to unwind. You’ll discover a spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with high vaulted ceilings and timber beams. Slate tiling underfoot and glimpses of exposed stonework, together with the wood burner, create a cosy ambience for snuggling up on the sofas. Watch your favourite films on the TV or break open a pack of cards for some leisurely entertainment before supper. The kitchen area has an electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave and a fridge/freezer, and there’s a compact dining table for feasting together. In terms of practicality, the utility room is equipped with some useful drying space alongside a washer/dryer. There is a shower room with a walk-in shower and WC, and there is a separate WC too. The two bedrooms are a pleasant sight when you are weary from your day - the first is a homely and inviting ground-floor bedroom with a double bed, bedroom furniture and an oak dressing table. Accessed via a set of stairs, the second bedroom is mezzanine-style with two small 2ft 6” beds, built-in storage and bedroom furniture, as well as a TV for a bonus treat. Please take care when choosing beds, one of the twin beds is positioned next to the bannister that is open to the stairs.

Outside, the garden is a delightful spot to sip your first coffee of the day whilst you admire the mature trees and shrubs. The ornamental pond adds an extra sense of relaxation, and you may be lucky enough to see some of the resident wildlife flitting across it. Off-road parking is available for two cars.

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.
