Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

High Mead has amazing views and we enjoyed our stay immensely! The house is spacious and a true 'home from home'. We were very lucky with the weather as we stayed on 7th and 8th April and were even able to sit out on the lovely patjo with the gorgeous view of the sea. Just wish our stay had been longer! Would definitely go back!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

Not long back home from our third visit to this beautiful house. It really does feel like home from home as soon as you step into the large hallway. The views are stunning and the owners supply you with everything you could possibly need. Loved the addition of the new double bed, very comfortable as was the new sofa. The weather wasn't as good this year but when you have such a fantastic place to come back to at the end of your day you don't care. Love it and would happily stay permanently. Can't wait for our forth stay. Catharine, Jayne, Alfie and Maisie.

Travel:

A car is advised. Alternatively, the train station is only a 10 minute walk from High Mead. However, due to High Mead's elevated position, there is a steep hill to climb to get to the premises.

Further Details:

Aberdovey is a small peaceful seaside village nestling on the north side of the Dyfi estuary. A popular resort for many years it has a thriving little harbour and sits within Snowdonia National Park, where the river Dyfi meets the blue waters of Cardigan Bay.

Aberdovey is a haven for those wanting to spend an energetic holiday. It has watersports galore, including sailing, sailboarding, fishing, boat trips and the summer regatta. It also has an 18 hole championship golf course.

The area around Aberdovey is littered with attractions. For example, the Talyllyn Railway, which starts in Tywyn, is well worth a visit and there are numerous historical sites within close driving distance in addition to spectacular mountain and valley scenery including the peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges. This is an ideal area for walkers, climbers and wildlife watchers.

Aberdovey's 4 miles of golden sands, sheltered climate, and backdrop of the rolling hills and valleys of Snowdonia National Park, make it an ideal place for a weekend getaway, short break, or family holiday - Aberdovey really does have something for all the family.

Many people return to Aberdovey year after year. It is such an ideal place to relax or use as a base to explore the wild and rugged West side of Wales.
