Our Cottage Holiday To Aberdovey

Last week my partner and I decided we deserved a little getaway. We love going on weekends away and exploring new places in the UK. The last time we went away we went to Howarth in the Yorkshire Dales which I posted about HERE which was a beautiful countryside village surrounding by the Yorkshire Moors so this time we decided we wanted to go coastal and we chose a beautiful property to stay in in Aberdovey, Mid Wales.

"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."

I have holidayed in North Wales many, many times but I had never ventured further South so this was a brand new place for me to explore. We chose a beautiful property on Sykes Cottages called Bro Dyfi which couldn't have been more cosy and comfortable for our week away. Without knowing before booking, we were the first holidaymakers to stay in Bro Dyfi since it was renovated in February which was a real treat.

The property had been renovated to a very high standard but it kept it's welsh charm with the dark dressers, drawers and tables. The property, which slept 5 people, cost £378.00 for 7 nights which works out as a bargain price of £54 per night, and this is without any hidden costs, so all of the bed linen, towels and power was included. Our hosts, Jenny and Bob were extremely friendly and were on call if we needed them.

So what did we get up to I hear you ask? Not much, which was exactly what we wanted! We did some walking in the beautiful, unspoiled Welsh hills and we explored the clear, sandy beaches of Barmouth, Fairbourne and Tywyn which are all within an hours drive of Aberdovey. We ate a lot, most of which we cooked in the gorgeous open plan kitchen in the cottage, but we did sample a few (by a few I mean one a day) homemade ice creams from a shop on Aberdovey high street which did the most delicious flavours, my favourite being satled caramel - I think i'm addicted to the stuff!

There is so much to do in the area; water-sports, seaside towns and villages to visit, a plentiful selection of cafes and restaurants to sample or you could do exactly what we did and enjoy your surroundings and do as much or as little as you like. Wales is definitely a place where all of the family will find something to do and enjoy.

I really enjoy renting a holiday cottage or apartment as you have so much more flexibility rather than staying in a small hotel room! We had a brilliant time in this picturesque park of the country.

Have you ever been to Mid Wales?
