Property

Updated: 17-Nov-2016
3 bed terraced cottage with magnificent views and within short walk to village and beach

You can even learn to speak Welsh! Other facilities include 2 hairdryers, full length mirror and bedside alarm clocks. An iron, ironing board, slow cooker and cooking utensils. A high chair, travel cot (no linen), plug-in nightlight and a stair gate are also provided for infants. In the summer, tennis racquets, balls and a windbreak are all provided for guests use. Please note: lets are from Friday to Friday or short breaks Friday to Monday, Monday to Friday. Towels are not included (apart from Tea-towels) but are available at extra charge by prior arrangement. Please note that access to the property may be difficult for clients with mobility issues and the garden may not be suitable for very young children.

About the Owner

CARA is formed from the initials of grandson, Christopher, son and daughter, Andrew and Rebecca and myself, Annette. I have owned it since 1999 and have thoroughly modernised and improved it during this time and continue to do so. I try to get to Aberdovey to check it out every 6-8 weeks but out of this time it is in the very capable hands of my housekeeper Su and her family who live locally. I have spent many happy times in CARA and hope that people renting the property will love it as much as I do. I am very lucky to have such a lovely home in an outstanding position.

James and I came for our honeymoon, and CARA was simply perfect. Comfortable accommodation with superb views. This is the ideal get away location and the owner goes out of her way to make the cottage feel home from home. We will definitely come back x

My favourite place

  • 5 of 5

I have visited CARA on a number of occasions with my boyfriend, and it occurred to me last time I stayed that I have never left a review. CARA Cottage is one of my favourite places in the world. Curling up in the immaculate and cosy front room in front of the lovely open fire if the weather is bad, or going down to the fantastic beach is the weather is nice, CARA is the ideal base for either a winter or summer getaway. The village is a 5 minute stroll away, in a stunning location, and the cottage comes equipped with everything you may need to make your stay enjoyable. Fantastic place, can't wait to come back again in 2016 - we have already booked our summer holiday here.

We were very impressed with just about everything in Cara. It was warm and welcoming with everything you need to make it a delightful place to stay. Immaculately clean and well furnished. The views are spectacular and just a few minutes walk into the town making it an ideal holiday home even in the winter. We would thoroughly recommend it and we hope to visit again

Location

From the Owner

My first visit to Aberdovey - I fell in love with it! It was so lovely for my children growing up and I now look forward to doing the same with grandchildren.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Golf : Aberdovey at 1 Miles Nearest Train : Aberdovey at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : Aberdovey at 0.5 Miles Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The centre of the village with 3 pubs, church, sandy beach, sand dunes, children's play area and Lifeboat Station are a 10 minute walk downhill from CARA cottage.

Travel:

A car is recommended but not necessary as both buses and trains serve the village.There is a rail link from Birmingham via Shrewsbury and Machynlleth to the local station in Aberdovey. This line then travels on to terminate at Pwllheli. CARA Cottage is a 15 minute uphill walk from Aberdovey station. Buses from the village also travel the local coastline via Machynlleth to Borth and Aberystwyth.

Distances:

Tywyn is the nearest small town to Aberdovey and is approximately 4 miles or a 10 minute drive away. Tywyn has two supermarkets and is home to the famous Talyllyn Railway - a narrow-gauge railway which runs from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol and passes through the beautiful Dolgoch Falls with many walks. The mountain Cader Idris lies at the southern end of Snowdonia National Park near the town of Dolellau which is within easy reach and is lovely to climb on a fine day.

Further Details:

The village boasts 3 pubs which all serve food and traditional draught beers. All have outdoor seating and children are welcome in the pubs in family areas. There are several local restaurants serving a variety of food including Indian. Several coffee houses, cafes and the local chip shop are on the sea front. Numerous shops sell fashions, beach equipment, toys and novelties and Ice Cream. A children's play area with slide and swings is situated next to the beach. The beach has a jetty and Lifeboat Station and Donkey rides in the summer. Young children enjoy catching crabs off the jetty and local shops sell the necessary equipment such as buckets, crabbing lines, bait and nets. There are also tennis courts, a putting green and 'flat' bowling green within walking distance. Woods (Bowls) can be hired, as can tennis equipment although 2 racquets are provided. Crown Green bowling and 'Crazy Golf' can be found at Tywyn.

Facilities

From the Owner

There is nothing better than returning from a walk on the beach or hills on a cold and windy day than to a warm and cosy house. The recently installed 'Multifuel' stove will be welcomed and used all year round. In summer, I like nothing more than sitting in the garden, sipping chilled wine and watching people on the beach!
