Self Catering Aberdovey Aberdyfi | Central Location

Self Catering AberdoveyMy 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 The wooden forks have been replaced by blue plastic ones but my chips drenched in vinegar tasted every bit as good.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, take great care of 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.

Self Catering Aberdovey


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.

    An excellent, peaceful idyllic seaside town and a brilliant place to stay.

  3. The Carlsons & The Makens says:

    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.

    Yacht Masts in Aberdovey
    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!

  5. Tracy Coates, Shrewsbury says:

    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.

  6. Jones/Nicols from Birmingham says:

    Wonderful large, light, well appointed house in fabulous place, perfect for 3 generations of our family to enjoy a lovely family holiday this summer. One person described sitting looking out of the front windows as ‘like being on board a ship, you only see the water and sky and hills in front of you’.

    This lovely house is very well appointed. In additions to everything else on the details, it even has a good sized outside ‘yard’ area with large table and chairs, and a basketball hoop – our 12 year old honed his skills happily on our quiet days :)

    Aberdovey is simply lovely for a peaceful, restoring, restful and happy family holiday, and this fabulous house is ideal. We’ll be back again next year.

  7. Peter Rowley Stafford says:

    Another marvellous holiday in Aberdovey and the perfect house to stay in.
    Comfortable relaxed and having all the amenities.
    I must book for next year.

  8. M Johnson Northamptonshire says:

    A comfortable and attractive house in an amazing location .

  9. Susan Turner, Atlanta, GA, USA says:

    This house is definately a little piece of paradise! The views of the harbor from every room are exceptional. We enjoyed the front yard on nice days and the views from the house when it was too cool or rainy to be outside. The house is very comfortable and well appointed and Keith was very helpful, stopping by to help when we had trouble lighting the fire. Aberdovey is a wonderful town and we enjoyed the pleasure of walking to the grocery and butcher shop. It was a great base for exploring the surrounding areas which are simply stunning in their beauty. I would highly recommend this house and hope that I am fortunate enough to return some day.

  10. The Tootells, Manchester says:

    We have had a fantastic stay at Aweldyfi. The views were very impressive from every room, and sat in the window with a glass of Muscadet and a selection of cheeses from the local deli, made for a very relaxing time. The kids loved the beach, even in November! Sam (10), Phoebe (8) and Libby (2) have had a ball and loved having a room each. The fish from the chippy was excellent, and we also took the kids to the Dovey Inn. Days out to Dolgoch Falls, King Arthurs Labyrinth and Harlech Castle were all enjoyed by all. For me personally, the bis surprise was just how beautiful Snowdonia was, particulalrly with all the trees changing colour at this time of year. All in all, a brilliant stay.

  11. Davina Keen, Stockport says:

    What a find ! This house was perfect for what we needed – There were 7 adults in our party and ample rooms and space. A lovely welcome pack on arrival and what views from the windows. The kitchen had everything we needed although we ate out most of the time in the lovely cafes and restaurants. We have already talked about returning next year.

  12. The Ritchies and the Hylands, says:

    Three generations; 6 adults, one 3 year old and two babies all catered for in this lovely house. To all have a stunning sea view was an unexpected bonus and that, combined with ample space and comfort, made for a delightful week.

  13. Amanda from the midlands says:

    WOW – what a wonderful house!

    WE booked this accomodation for our large family and had the most wonderful week.
    The accomodation was perfect and so close to the sea….. each morning (and sometimes during the night) I just looked out of the windows to view the boats bobbing up and down.
    Each of the spacious bedrooms had its own views of the harbour, decorated and furnished to a very high standard.
    The yard at the rear was great for our locally coaught fish BBQ, the basket ball hoop ideal for teenage boys and overall the house had tonnes of character, it even had roses growing around the front window.

    Several times we heard passers by comment on the house, some even stopped to take photos!

    We hope to visit again and highly recomend this Holiday home…

  14. Kate, Lichfield says:

    love love this house, had a wonderful Easter again in it and looking forward to 2 weeks in the summer!

  15. Anne, Solihull says:

    Having stayed in a variety of properties in Aberdovey over the past 14 years, this property is simply magnificent. With all principle rooms of sitting room, dining area and all 4 bedrooms overlooking the sea, it is a delight. Further bonus is 3 showers which is wonderful in the mornings. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped. Location obviously perfection. A truly fabulous house for us 7 ladies.

    Would just love use of the extensive garden we could see from the other road!

    We will definitely be back next spring.

  16. Ann, Ray and Family from Merseyside says:

    It is all about the location and views from every room! Loved the house which was ideal for our extended family and new baby. From other reviews it would appear that the kitchen and bathrooms have recently been upgraded and whilst we loved the accommodation, living areas could also do with a little TLC! That said we will hopefully be back next year to enjoy the lovely Aberdovey!
