Four Bedroom Sea Front Holiday Cottage in Aberdovey | Aweldyfi

Four Bedroom Sea Front Holiday Cottage in Aberdovey | Aweldyfi

My happy childhood holiday memories of sandy chips and wooden forks meant I really liked this four bedroom sea front holiday cottage in Aberdovey 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 The wooden forks have been replaced by blue plastic ones but my chips drenched in vinegar tasted every bit as good.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.

Four Bedroom Sea Front Holiday Cottage in Aberdovey | Aweldyfi

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.

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.

    As a group of friends we were so comfortable at AwelDyfi that we have booked to return in October! Our holiday marked our return to Aberdovey after nearly ten years. We have always thought of it as a special place, but this was the first time that we have had accommodation with such tremendous views. The house was very well equipped and relaxing, we’re looking forward to October whatever the weather!

  2. Michael & Iris Jay says:

    Aberdyfi is one of our favourite beach holiday resorts which we have been coming to for many years.Awel Dyfi is a fabulous holiday home in a super location overlooking the sea. The accomodation meets all our needs as a family of 8 and on our visit this year we were blessed with superb weather.Third week in April and we were in the sea -fantastic.
    We will return and can highly recommend it as a great place to relax and get away from the hectic lives we lead ,albeit for too shorter time.

  3. Sandra Soares says:

    I came here to celebrate my birthday. We stayed for 4 nights and there were 4 generations of us, aged ranged from 6 to 77 years old. We all had a fantastic time and the accommodation was great. Location great, weather was not great but there was still lots to do. We would definitely recommend this place and can’t wait to return.

  4. Rob Hart says:

    Great house, everything you need for a high standard self-catering stay. Very spacious and well laid out. Great views from all rooms. We would definitely go back again.

  5. Liesl Marchand says:

    A beautiful house in a stunning location and we were blessed with sunshine for the whole week. When we weren’t relaxing in the house, which mostly meant sitting in one of the window seats watching the boats bobbing about in the harbour, we indulged in ice cream – cones of chips while walking on the beach – ice cream – crab fishing off the pier, oh and did I mention the ice cream. A thoroughly enjoyable & relaxing property that we are already planning our next visit to.

    We have long loved Aberdovey and have been frequent visitors over the years, so we were very much looking forward to our stay at Awel Dyfi and we were not disappointed. As soon as we arrived we felt at home in this wonderful, spacious house. Its location on the seafront is perfect and waking up each morning to the stunning views of the estuary was a real treat. I have no hesitation in recommending this house and thank the owners for sharing. We are already making plans to return again next year.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. Kate, Lichfield says:

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

  11. 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…

  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.
