Aberdyfi / Aberdovey
The picturesque harbour village of Aberdyfi / Aberdovey is renowned for its mild climate, sandy beaches, sailing and a championship 18-hole links golf course (rated in the UK's top 100). The village is often referred to as “an artist's paradise” with its pastel-coloured cottages, small shops, inns and excellent restaurants which specialise in local seafood, all helping to create a relaxed welcoming atmosphere.
Aberdyfi / Aberdovey boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with four miles of golden sand-dune backed shoreline running north to Tywyn, home of the world-famous Talyllyn narrow gauge Steam Railway, crab fishing and the famous Dyfi Donkeys. The beaches are popular with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen while the estuary attracts a wide range of water sports enthusiasts.
The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complemented by the charm of the Dyfi, Dysynni and Tal y Llyn valleys nearby. An ideal area for walkers, climbers and wildlife watchers, and a wonderful all-year-round location.

Comments from the Visitors' Book
Loved the house – so lucky with the weather! The front patio is a complete sun trap. Had some of our best ever beach days with the family, the house is so central to the village and beach but feels nice and private when you are there! Kids loved the space inside and outside the house – outdoor shower was a godsend for showering off all the sand! We loved it so much we have booked another week in August! Thanks Again'
Aberdovey at its best, never seen the sea so clear as it is at the moment. Frondeg was the perfect venue - Open Living space in kitchen, dining, living room was great – the kids loved the other lounge which meant adults got some quiet time! Enclosed patio meant kids and dogs couldn’t stray too far. 7 bedrooms gave lots of space for everyone - the kids took over the top floor of the house and loved it! Being able to park next to the backdoor made unloading the car and packing up painless. Great house in a great village – cant wait to come back.
