An inviting, third-floor apartment, with magnificent views out over the golden sands of Aberdyfi in Mid Wales, towards the open estuary and the sea.

Survey the natural beauty around you from this enticing, duplex apartment in the heart of the Welsh coastal village of Aberdyfi. Set across the third and fourth floor of an ornate, seafront apartment building, the two-bedroom property sleeps up to four guests and is ideal for a small family or two couples. Stroll over to the beautiful, 3-mile long, sandy beach less than 50 metres away. Go swimming or sailing here or head 4 miles along the coast to the beach at Tywyn, which is popular with surfers. Venture 9.5 miles into Snowdonia National Park to see the impressive rocky outcrop of Craig yr Aderyn, a famous breeding ground for cormorants.

Climb the stairs up to the third floor of the building and enter the apartment to find yourselves in the hall. Wander on through into the light-filled lounge/diner, with its incredible coastal views. Tear yourselves away from the windows to relax on the comfortable seating and watch the Smart TV or a film on the HD DVD. Make your way through into the kitchen/diner to prepare dinner for your party. Well-equipped with a Rangemaster electric oven and gas hob, microwave, American-style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, toaster and kettle, plus a washing machine and tumble dryer. Pause at the small table for a while with a glass of wine and your book before heading back through to the main room to lay the table for dinner. At the end of the evening, climb the steep stairs, which have no handrail, up to the floor above. Choose between a double bedroom with sea views plus an en-suite shower room with WC, and a comfortable twin room with 3ft beds. The bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC  is also on this level.

Soak up the sun and sea air from the balcony to the front of the apartment but please ensure children are supervised at all times and take care as the railings are low and the decking may be slippery. The large, sandy beach is just across the road. There is no parking at the property, but guests will be supplied with one car pass for pay and display car parks in Aberdyfi. One of these is within 150 metres.

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.
