1 Prospect Place
1 Prospect Place is a chic and stylish town house in one of the most chic and stylish seaside resorts in Wales. This former Victorian grocers shop is right in the heart of Aberdovey and only a short hop from boutique shops, a la carte restaurants and sandy beaches.
The kitchen-diner is small but perfectly formed. Hardwood worktops combine with modern appliances and stainless steel fixtures to make a thoroughly modern and functional kitchen-diner. The adjoining lounge has a similar contemporary feel. The original large picture windows have been retained. As the property commands a prime corner location, this living area is bathed in light throughout the day. There are however, some very expensive looking wooden shutters to ensure a bit more privacy during the evening.
From the lounge you step into a central hallway. There’s a ground floor WC, as well as steps leading up to the bedrooms and down to the cellar. Half the cellar has been converted into a bit of a utility room with washing machine and freezer etc. The other half provides a great storeroom for wet and muddy gear. Wetsuits, surfboards, buckets and spades etc. There’s access directly to street level from here, so it’s perfect for those planning a more active holiday. Limited headroom, so take care!
Two bedrooms on the first floor, one double with shower en-suite and one single. There’s also a separate shower room on this level. The owners have years of experience in the tourism industry so everything you need is included. Bed side lamps, plenty of storage and seating etc. But more importantly the rooms have been furnished with taste. Cath Kidston linen, some nice pictures from local artists and more designer radiators.
Up one more flight of steps to the 2nd floor. One standard double rooms and one double room with an en-suite shower room (no wc). A separate wc is accessed from the landing.
As mentioned, Aberdyfi is a very fashionable town with some fantastic pubs and restaurants, as well as all the usual shops. The town, somehow, remains untarnished from the neon commercialism that has spoilt a lot of British seaside resorts. We enjoyed an afternoon crab fishing on the old wharf and we must have built hundreds of sand castles on what is a fantastically clean beach. I’m told that the yacht club is very active and that the links golf course is among the best in Wales.
The more energetic out there also have plenty to choose from. Kite surfing, white water rafting, sea kayaking and mountain biking are all available. Tywyn and the famous Tal Y Llyn steam railway is 10 minutes to the north and the city of Aberystwyth is about 30 minutes to the south.
So, in conclusion, if you decide to stay at 1-Prospect-Place, I’m confident you’ll have a nice time. But drop us an email or give us a ring if you have any questions.
