Two light and attractive double bedrooms (one with king sized bed). Ample hanging space and drawers provided. Wall mounted heater in each bedroom and storage heater on landing.
Modern bathroom with power shower over bath, heated towel rail, electric heater and shaver-socket.
Delightful loft bedroom with double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers all in matching pine. Large velux skylight in roof. Storage heater. NB ceilings sloping and low in places.
PLEASE NOTE that the stairs leading up to this room are steep and narrow (42 cm wide) so will not be suitable for all. Because stairs are steep, it’s advisable to descend as on a ladder. Also, because of the velux window, this room is not suitable for young/unsupervised children (even though there is a safety bar fitted across the window). There is a gate fixed to the bottom of the stairs which can be secured by parents.
REAR PATIO GARDEN
Recently landscaped using beautiful Welsh slate. Patios on two levels with stunning views over the Dovey (Dyfi) estuary. Garden areas creatively designed and planted with aromatic flowering plants and medicinal herbs which have been carefully chosen to maximise pollination. Garden furniture (three tables and ample seating for you and your guests). Garden trays, cool box, ice packs and picnic-ware all provided. Motion sensor lighting over access steps to garden and on upper patio. Solar lighting in garden.
PLEASE NOTE: Access to the rear garden is via steep steps. Even though the steps are fitted with sturdy handrails on both sides, THESE STEPS MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR ALL. Elderly visitors or those with walking difficulties will need to be accompanied on the stairs, as will young children. Having said that, please note that one regular visitor, who is in her 80s and walks with a stick, considers the supervised ascent to be well worth the effort!
Also, the garden has safety railings and handrails, however, because of its elevated position; there are steep drops beyond some of the railings. For this reason, THE GARDEN IS NOT SUITABLE FOR UNSUPERVISED CHILDREN.
Comments from visitors:
This was our first trip to Wales and will most certainly not be our last!
The cottage is as delightful as was described, and Aberdovey is simply beautiful!
The accommodation is very well maintained and equipped with just about everything you could possibly need at hand.
If you are looking for a peaceful , relaxing break, look no further because it's all here ...
Unspoilt beaches, rolling surf, inviting pubs and cafes, friendly locals, and the benefit of excellent transport links ....what more could you ask for!
You will not be disappointed!!

"Great stay. Traditional fisherman's cottage, typical of the area and just a few minutes walk from the sea. Stylish, clean and very comfortable. An ideal base for exploring the beautiful countryside and coast as well as Aberdovey itself. Perfect to relax and chill and well worth another visit!"

''This Welsh hideaway is a gem. Bright, cheery and cosy all at the same time. Well equipped and prettily appointed in every way. The views from a particularly beautiful rear garden are truly spectacular...a hills and seaside panorama. For some reason my favourite part was the front terrace where I felt tucked away but able to see what was going on around me. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and am in the process of booking next summers holiday.''
