  • Handsome stone barn conversion with impressive views out over Cardigan Bay
  • Set on a tranquil farm in picturesque rural surroundings
  • Sunny terrace with hot tub and plenty of space for outdoor relaxation
Property code: DY049

A welcoming barn conversion, ideal for a family of four or two couples, in an elevated position above Aberdyfi, capturing magnificent coastal vistas.

Make your great escape to this enticing Welsh barn conversion, situated up on a hill overlooking Cardigan Bay. Approximately 1.5 miles’ drive from Aberdyfi, the two-storey property is set on a working farm and sleeps four guests. Also welcoming two small dogs, it is ideally positioned for anyone wishing to strike out along the Welsh Coast Path, which runs close by. Head into Aberdyfi to go to the beach, play golf or take part in water sports. Venture into the Snowdonia National Park, which begins here, or take the children to King Arthur’s Labyrinth, 14.5 miles away in Corris.

Let yourselves into the barn via the front door and hall, then continue through into the open-plan lounge/kitchen. Light the wood burner in here on chilly days and settle down to watch the TV. Wander over to the kitchen area to prepare a delicious meal with the fresh produce you have shopped for, then head through into the conservatory, which doubles as a dining room, to eat together and take in the spectacular views. Also find you have a twin bedroom at this level, with a TV and DVD for anyone fancying long, lazy mornings in bed before embarking on their busy day. This room also benefits from access to a bathroom with a shower over the bath, a handbasin and a WC. Climb the stairs up to the first floor to discover a double bedroom with a TV and an en-suite shower room with WC and handbasin. Open the door to the balcony from this bedroom on sunny mornings and wander out to welcome the day.

Gaze out at the views from the glass-fronted balcony on the first floor or soak up the sunshine on the patio below. Dine out here too on warm evenings and watch the sun go down. Bubble in the hot tub as often as you choose. Find plenty of parking at the property and enjoy having a free permit for the pay and display car parks in Aberdyfi, for those occasions you want to load up and drive down to the beach.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 super-king and 1 twin (zip-and-link can be super king on request at the time of booking)
  • 2 bathrooms – 1 en-suite shower room with WC, 1 bathroom with shower over the bath and WC

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.
