(Aberdovey) - Wonderful sea views from this North Wales holiday cottage which sleeps up to 8. Situated in a prime location in this fashionable sea side town and walking distance to the pub and shops.
My happy childhood holiday memories of sandy chips and wooden forks meant I really liked Aberdyfi from the minute we arrived. The wooden forks have been replaced by blue plastic ones but my chips drenched in vinegar tasted every bit as good. Add the harbour sounds and fresh sea and we all got that real ‘holiday’ feeling straight away.
I should talk about the house. First of all, it’s in a great position. Right on the sea front and walking distance to the pub and shops. It’s a big 3 storey house, typical Victorian architecture I guess. The huge bay windows at the front meant we had a great view across the estuary and out to the distant Cambrian Mountains.
Inside the kitchen is well equipped and has large double doors opening onto the dining room which meant I didn’t feel left out when cooking breakfast. There’s a lounge next door and four bedrooms in total. Two of which are en-suite and plus another two bathrooms. Glenn and Rachel, the owners, have only just bought the house so everything is newly decorated and gleaming. Rachel has great taste and has furnished the house to a really high standard. Glenn’s included all the necessary boys’ toys, LCD Digital TV, DVD, MP3 etc.
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 chose 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 Aweldyfi I’m confident you’ll have a nice time, but drop us an email or give us a ring if you have any questions.

"The location is , of course, perfect. So wonderful to wake up to that view – or even relax during the day, watching the tides ebb and flow. We are reluctant to tell too many people about this gem as we will be hoping to return – don’t want too much competition."
The Greens, Birmingham
"An excellent, peaceful idyllic seaside town and a brilliant place to stay."
Michelle & Roy, Llandudno
"All of our needs were catered for, even down to the little touches like stair gates and plug socket covers, which, for a group including a baby and two toddlers were very much appreciated. We wouldn’t hesitiate in recommending the house and location and will definately come back."
The Carlsons & The Makens
"As soon as we walked through the door we thanked God that we had found such a lovely house! With Imogen (4.5) and Harry (3 months) we prayed for space, warmth, comfort, a convenient location and a view to die for. We got all this and more!"
The Sealeys, Sutton Coldfield
"Myself and friends arrived and as promised the house is right on the front, in fact when you are in the dining room/living room, you can only sea the sea. What a fab house, perfect for two families, the adults had the two rooms with en-suite, they were so light & airy and once again fab views to sea, two minuets walk to the beach/shops.
Would highley recommend.
It delivers all it says in the advert, thanks very much."
