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

What a fantastic apartment, with a fantastic view & and even fantastic weather!!  We will definitely be back...

Only 1 wet day in a week – can’t be bad!!  Spent a lot of time walking in the hills but it was great coming back to the apartment sitting at the window taking in the view.  P.S. Loved the big bed!!

We’ve had a lovely holiday!  A homely apartment with fantastic views.  Had a few ice creams – very nice!  We will be back! Thank you

We have had a wonderful week, with some sunny warm days as well as a couple of windy ones.  The apartment is lovely. We have enjoyed the views and a lot of people watching!  Wonderful to wake up to the fantastic views every day.  Returning to Aberdovey is always a pleasure and to stay up above a sweetshop has made the kids holiday!  Caught over ‘500’ crabs to boot!  Tip use mackerel from the fishmonger around the corner!!  We hope to return again soon.

What a delightful apartment! We have had a lovely weekend. The weather has been perfect, the start of summer! We have enjoyed the ever-changing scene outside, the patterns in the water, shifting clouds, the mountains and people pottering about. This is a new area for us and would like to return sometime.

Very enjoyable stay, fab accommodation. Clean and comfy. Great views! Perfect place to recharge your batteries. Thank you.
Thank you for a lovely stay, the apartment was wonderful. We picked the right week, the weather was amazing. We will definitely be back.  

We really enjoyed our mini-break, would certainly come back. Had a lovely time at Aberdovey beach as well as New Quay, which was worth a visit for the crabbing and dolphin spotting. Ice cream below the apartment and the Bistro a few doors down were amongst the highlights.

Great place. Had a wonderful holiday. We've eaten our body weight in ice cream from downstairs! Diolch.

We have had a couple of lovely weeks, catching up with friends and eating at some lovely pubs. We can recommend visiting the home of the Dyfi Donkeys on their open days (Wed & Sun) in the summer at Commins Coch, Machynlleth.

Another lovely stay at the Sweetshop Apartment. Weather lovely, plenty of time on the beach and crabbing. Perfect!
