Beautiful cottage in great location

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully renovated to a very high standard with lovely decorative touches throughout. The fixtures and fittings are top quality and there has obviously been a lot of thought and effort put into ensuring it is equipped with anything you could possibly want for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. Yes there is a flight of steps up to the house, and you cannot park immediately nearby, but we were fully aware of that, and it wasn't an issue as we were provided with a car park pass for the main car park, and often found road-side parking just up the street anyway.

Great Accomodation In Aberdovey

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and really enjoyed our stay in this totally unique property. The interior is really well designed to make maximum use of the space available and well kitted out with everything you need in a holiday cottage. For us as a family the exterior of the property was a real bonus, the large sun terrace not only provided a great space to sit out, eat and relax but also somewhere to deal with all the wet sandy items a family of five generate after a day on the beach. This outside space is something rarely available in the centre of Aberdovey.

What a wonderful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely brilliant. Immaculate accommodation and perfect for couples, families or an adult gathering for a special ocassion. The location is stunning and perfectly set in the heart of Aberdovey. The lay out is great inside and utilises the space brilliantly. The owners are very helpful indeed and will go that extra mile to ensure everything is perfect. We will definitely look to stay again.

Gem of a find....

  • 5 of 5

This holiday let is set in a very convenient part of Aberdovey, only steps away from the beach front, pier, shops and pubs but very quiet and private, with a lovely sunny patio area with comfortable seating and dining table. It has been lovingly refurbished and they owners have thought of everything. The mezzanine area is not only a great teenage hideaway, it is a very comfortable area to sit and read a book on a rainy day I should imagine. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has been kitted with everything you need. There is one parking permit provided by the owners to park on the main car park on Aberdovey front but friends also found free parking on the nearby roadway. We loved and stay and certainly hope to return.

From the Owner

When we first visited the property back in the summer of 2013 it was overgrown, derelict and in places structurally unstable. However, we all fell in love with it because of its fantastic, south facing, position in a quiet leafy part of Aberdovey. It had such a good feel we couldn't wait to get started!

From the Owner

Large south facing sun patio (quite unusual in this part of town to have a lot of outdoor space). Quirky character - it used to be the old golf club and was moved from its position on Aberdovey Beach to its current location early in the 20th Century.

  • Notes on accommodation: Greenhill Cottage has been under renovation since October 2013, and has been re-built to a high standard offering fantastic accommodation with underfloor heating, mezzanine with sea and mountain views, log burning stove, fully fitted kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Cottage was originally the old Aberdovey Golf Club which was moved from its previous life at the beach, to its current location on Copperhill Street in the 1940s (approx). Since that time it has been used as a family home, and also as accommodation for the Outward Bound Centre. We have upgraded the cottage to modern standards, whilst aiming to retain and enhance its original features to give it a quirky and individual character. Outside: The cottage is south facing and is situated in the centre of a large south facing paved balcony. Outdoor dining facilities include table and chairs, lounge beds and barbeque. Utility Room: Utility room providing washing machine and condenser tumble dryer, iron, ironing board etc. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: The cottage is cleaned at the end of each rental, we will include this in the price quoted. Linen and hand towels provided. Other: Mezzanine to provide chill out space and sea view. Access via ship's ladder (not suitable for children aged 5 or under). Young children must be supervised.
