Glandwr is a superb modern self-catering holiday cottage located on the banks of the Dovey Estuary. The property retains most of its original features with stunning views and close to the centre of the village. The cottage has direct access to a stony beach which is a great location for a picnic during warm sunny days throughout the year, whilst watching wildlife on the river. Ten minutes’ walk away are the golden sands of Aberdovey beach and Cardigan Bay.
