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.

We had a great week in your beautiful house. Lots of lovely walks, great food as usual at the Seabreeze, Riverside & Phil’s Deli. We have been up a few hills, up to Portmeirion and off to Aberystwyth Arts Centre 

What an amazing house you have! Thank you for letting us stay. We have had a brilliant time visiting Aberdyfi and celebrating our friend’s wedding. We will be back.

Thank you once again for our lovely long stay. We’ve had a fabulous week with lots of beautiful weather and new walks. It’s countdown until Christmas now – can’t wait!

Dovey delightful – what a splendid time we had in the sunshine (yes really) in your slice of wonderfulness. Thank you for sharing this special place with us.

Thank you so much for accommodating us in your wonderful home. We have all had a fantastic week with fantastic weather. There has been so much for the children and us to see and do. Dovey-Fest was fantastic as were the lazy days on the beach. Your house had everything we could need for our stay. We are also going to put a speaker in our bathroom at home! Very much looking forward to coming back.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful house. We have been coming to Aberdovey since 1970 – and this is our first stay on the front. We visited Titan and would recommend it – great fun. Lots of crabbing on the pier and a couple of days on the beach. Hope to visit you again soon.

We’ve had a fabulous week in a fantastic house!! Don’t really want to go home. Lots to do locally but we did experience Titan Zip Wire + Surf Snowdonia which is well worth the trip. Can’t wait to come back here again. Just Perfect

Thank you for allowing us to be the first to stay in your fabulous holiday let! We’ve had a wonderful week here, so much so that we’ve booked another week in September. We’ve been coming to Aberdovey for years and feel we’ve found our perfect place. We’ve had a mixed bag of weather which has been great, while it's sunny we’ve walked and chilled here dodging the showers. It’s been so relaxing and comfortable. Looking forward to September already!
