(Aberdovey) - This is a traditional stone-built cottage a ten minute flat walk from the centre of Aberdyfi. It is set in a superb location with wonderful views over the estuary in all its changing aspects. For two to four people in three bedrooms.

The sitting room has four easy chairs, a 19” Sony flatscreen digital TV with freeview channels, a CD player and an electric convector heater. The dining room has a table and four chairs, an easy chair, a small ‘pub’ table, a radio cassette recorder and an electric convector heater. The kitchen is fully equipped with electric cooker, microwave oven, refrigerator and compact washing machine, with all the usual cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and washing materials. There is a separate larder.
Bedroom 1 has a double bed; bedroom 2 has two single beds; bedroom 3 has one single bed. Each bedroom has a wardrobe and/or a dressing table, chair and rugs.  The bathroom has toilet, washbasin, bath with shower attachment and a cylinder tank with immersion heater for hot water.
Bed linen and tea towels are provided but visitors are asked to bring their own personal towels. Water and electricity usage are included in the price.
The Cottage is less suitable for toddlers or very old people because of the steps and stairs and the proximity of the road. When costing their stay, visitors should also bear in mind the cost of parking, which is currently £2.50 per day at Penhelig car park 200 yards away; though outside busy periods there may be free space nearby. 

One can travel to Penhelig by car but an alternative is to take the Cambrian coast railway which stops at Penhelig halt 200 yards from The Cottage.  For shopping, the nearest supermarkets are in Towyn and Machynlleth. There are also shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs in Aberdyfi.
