Aberdyfi / Aberdovey

The picturesque harbour village of Aberdyfi / Aberdovey is renowned for its mild climate, sandy beaches, sailing and a championship 18-hole links golf course (rated in the UK's top 100). The village is often referred to as “an artist's paradise” with its pastel coloured cottages, small shops, inns and excellent restaurants which specialise in local seafood, all helping to create a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Aberdyfi / Aberdovey boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with four miles of golden sand-dune backed shoreline running north to Tywyn, home of the world-famous Talyllyn narrow gauge Steam Railway, crab fishing and the famous Dyfi Donkeys. The beaches are popular with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen while the estuary attracts a wide range of water sports enthusiasts.

The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complemented by the charm of the Dyfi, Dysynni and Tal y Llyn valleys nearby. An ideal area for walkers, climbers and wildlife watchers, and a wonderful all-year-round location.

Comments from the Visitors' Book

This is our fourth visit in Aberdovey; we love it more each time. Such a friendly easy-going place, with a convenient location.
'Wow'. What an amazing place to stay - Hauldy has been beautifully renovated, and the views are simply breathtaking! Well done in creating the most amazing holiday home that quite simply makes us feel very relaxed and happy. Can't wait to come back very soon.

We have had 2 weeks of great summer weather in a lovely house with a beautiful view. The house was perfect for four generations of us. We take back lots of good memories. Thank you.

Wow-what a house had such a great time, will be back. Loved the views and little details. Thanks.

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend, the views across the sea, the comfort of the beds and the thoughtful detail that has gone into every corner of the house has made it a trip we'll never forget! We will be back!

Wonderful again (our second stay) we'll look forward to the 3rd.

Fantastic holiday. Just what we needed. Amazing house, everything we could have wished for. Fantastic weather, leaving here refreshed and relaxed - we shall return. Thank you.

Beautiful house in a great location. We were all in awe of the view from the balcony. We were blessed with great weather until the last day. Fireworks on the beach were a great finale to a wonderful holiday!

We have stayed in many self-catering cottages in Aberdovey over the years. Hauldy has got to be one of the best. We weren't blessed with great weather, but the location and comfort of the house went some way to ensure we still had an enjoyable holiday.
