Our first trip to Mid Wales and Aberdovey - a special town with great location and fabulous beach walks. A great cottage and incredible landscaped back garden.

John and J,

Our family has been visiting Aberdyfi for about 40 years, so it feels like home from home. This is the first time we decided to do self-catering (much easier with a toddler) as we usually stay in a hotel. The house is so warm and cosy, very easy to settle in to, and it has everything we need! We absolutely love the original features, the decor and the appliances all worked a treat. Thank you for helping to make this yet another very special stay in Aberdyfi.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for a wonderful stay in Aberdovey. We loved the stunning walks, beautiful beach and friendly town. We hope to return to Snowdonia again for another family holiday
