About the property

Mid Terrace Cottage in Aberdovey, Gwynedd, Wales - Peaceful location, 5 minute walk to the beach and acess to footpaths for scenic walks.

This attractive three bedroom Welsh stone terraced cottage with its interior decor created by the local company Seld Design, is ideally situated on the edge of this beautiful village just 5 minutes’ walk from the centre, harbour and beach. With the Penhelig Arms Hotel close by and its wide selection of beers, wine and restaurant makes this cottage the obvious choice to stay. If a quality holiday is what you are after then look no further. The property has gas central heating on three floors, with a log burner for those cosy winter nights, after a stroll along the beach; it is both warm and very comfortable with ample seating on two leather sofas with throws and cushions to accommodate all. For those rainy days why not take advantage of Bose speaker .There are also a good selection of board games to keep the family entertained. We have sky TV for the rainy days and Wi-Fi for people that need to connect with business or relax and chat or discover the area on Google .

You can Pre-order your food from the local butcher to make your stay even more relaxing, or book yourself into some of the iconic local pubs and restaurants.

Please note we are having renovation work in the back garden and therefore outside seating is unavailable until further notice. We do however have a location where you step outside the front door to the sea and promenade walkway and to the left is a beautiful garden area where you can sit, read the paper, take in the views or have a picnic.

Fishing - Sea fishing can be enjoyed from the shore or on a fishing boat trip. Catches can be quite varied but mackerel, bream, pollock, skate and even sharks are quite common. The estuary is home to several types of flatfish and also the famous Aberdovey bass - the fighters of the fish world.

There simply isn't room to cover everything, but rest assured within the area are facilities for pony trekking, clay pigeon shooting, quad bike riding. There are several leisure centres within easy reach with the usual sports facilities and indoor swimming pools.


We invite you to come and experience the charm and tranquility of this ancient little seaport. This quaint little village is unspoiled with miles of clean golden sand and sheltered dunes. This is always a favorite with children whether they be innocently paddling, building sandcastles or crabbing off the jetty.

In the heart of the village you can browse the special boutiques and galleries and dine in some fantastic restaurants and inns. Alternatively you can just come to relax.


The train station is immediately opposite the cottage.

We had a lovely time, cottage is lovely everything we needed, would definitely recommend!

Only problem we had was with HomeAway themselves, there communication was not very good, they failed to let people know we were arriving, so when we got there at 4.30pm with our children (time stated for arrival) the cottage was not cleaned from the last people, so no beds made no towels etc! Impossible to get hold of HomeAway but luckily I had the owners number.

Jayne was very helpful and thankfully got things sorted within the hour.

But apart from that hiccup I couldn't fault the cottage or owner and would definitely return, but definitely go through the owner next time!

Beautiful cottage set in an idyllic Welsh Seaside village just 44 steps to the nearest pub! 🤗

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful Welsh village. Very well equipped property with every extra you could wish for. Jayne was the best person I've had the pleasure to deal with when organising a holiday. I sent Jayne a text message to ask what time we could arrive on check in?

To my surprise she told my the cottage was empty I could go now an extra night. But most of all helping us beat the daunting Easter traffic jams. Jayne thank you for your hospitality & generous offer can't thank you enough! "We all can't wait for a return visit back to Aberdovey!"

Great home from home

  • 5 of 5

Great location for walking and taking the kids to the beach, with all the essentials needed and catered for. Owner of the property hospitable and the car park pass an added bonus and useful, wifi made my daughters week being able to keep in touch with friends. Close to all amenities with a wealth of leaflets and guides to help choose.

Accommodation clean and well presented all when the garden is finished will make the property even more desirable. A lovely stay will return and recommend to friends and family
