Harbour View Cottage was originally the home of a working Aberdovey family. Boats were built in the small bay by the “Penhelig Arms” and the local fish merchant had his home and shop just five doors down the terrace by the small jetty. Built somewhere around 1850 on the bank of the Dovey Estuary the cottage enjoys stunning views, both out to sea and across the estuary to Ynyslas, Borth and the Cambrian Range beyond.
Today, Harbour View Cottage has been restored to a high standard by the current owners and enjoys one of the most beautiful views to be found in the area. Within 100 yards of the cottage are the Cambrian Coast railway halt and the welcoming “Penhelig Arms” which is a pub with an excellent selection of beers & wines, and an outstanding restaurant.  The cottage overlooks the Memorial Garden where the Heroes of WW2 are commemorated. This is an excellent place to start a walk, along the historic Roman Road towards Picnic Island, or along the road and foreshore (at low tide) to the village centre less than half a mile away. Walking, fishing, sailing, windsurfing, eating and drinking are all pursuits to be enjoyed locally. Alternatively, just sit and enjoy the view.  It’s your holiday after all.

Further afield you can explore the Ynys-Hir RSPB Reserve which is a wildlife haven in the heart of Wales, made famous by the BBC Spring Watch programme, The Dyfi Osprey Project (please follow the link to watch live:, The Ceredigion Heritage Coast along Cardigan Bay, the Cambrian Mountains and not forgetting the lakes, small towns and villages, picturesque resorts and harbours.
