Glanaber is a superb modern self-catering holiday apartment on the banks of the Dovey Estuary. The property retains most of its original features with stunning seaside views.

Located next to the foreshore of the Dovey Estuary 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.

This south facing cottage is spacious and comfortable with outstanding views from the principal bedrooms and sitting room across the estuary to the mountains beyond. It is approached from the road by a flight of terraced steps, which also lead to a row of small, former fishermen’s cottages to the rear. The apartment is near the pretty local park with superb views of the bay, a small railway 'halt' and the Old Roman Road providing a wonderful walk along the estuary. The Penhelig Arms Hotel is situated nearby offering an excellent selection of beers, wines and outstanding restaurant.
