  • “Had a lovely week in Kynaston Cottage.”

    Facilities in the cottage were excellent and everything very clean. Very close to seafront. Back yard not really useable.

The property

A wonderful double-fronted, end-terrace character cottage located a two minute walk away from the centre of the delightful seaside resort of Aberdovey.

Situated on the southern fringe of the Snowdonia National Park, Aberdovey offers a lovely colourful harbour, long sandy beach and the wonderful estuary; ideal for open water swimming, watersports and exhilarating walks.

The cottage offers a welcoming and cosy coastal holiday home and is perfect for couples, friends or a family.

Decorated and furnished to a good standard in a coastal theme, this cottage successfully blends modern comforts with some vintage and retro styling.

The inviting sitting room is light and boasts a dining area, exposed beams and a wonderful feature fireplace with exposed stone, which houses a warming woodburning stove, creating a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere for all the family.

The galley-style and slightly irregular shaped kitchen adds to the charm and appeal of this delightful cottage and the downstairs cloakroom will come in handy!

Upstairs are three comfortable bedrooms, with lots of built-in cupboard space and lovely oak bedroom furniture and a luxury tiled shower room is situated next to the bedrooms and includes a shower enclosure with rainshower head and handset, a heated floor, heated towel rail, sink, modern LED mirror and WC.

To the rear of the cottage is a small enclosed yard with table and chairs, ideal at the end of a busy day to just sit and unwind before the evening.

Aberdovey plays host to numerous watersports, including sailing and sailboarding, go fishing or hop on one of the many boat trips on offer and watch the summer regatta.

Take the children crabbing, they’ll love it!

Alternatively enjoy a chilled glass of something in one of the harbour and waterfront bars, or take afternoon tea at one of the many tea rooms.

The area is surrounded by stunning views, walks and cycle routes and is littered with attractions.

Within a short walk from the cottage you can explore the four miles of sand dune backed beaches that stretch up to the northern town of Tywyn.

Here you can take a trip on the Tal-y-Llyn Railway, or walk to the top of the majestic mountains that rise from the estuary.

Slightly further afield discover historic Machynlleth, the fascinating Centre for Alternative Technology, the exciting King Arthur's Labyrinth, all worth a visit and of course, the Cader Idris mountain range.

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

One thing is sure, this welcoming coastal cottage is ideal for a traditional seaside holiday or simply a romantic break at any time of the year.

About the location


Tywyn 5 miles; Machynlleth 11 miles.

The picturesque harbour village of Aberdovey is renowned for its mild climate, sandy beaches, sailing and a championship 18-hole links golf course (rated in the UK's top 100). The village is often referred to as “an artist's paradise” with its pastel-coloured cottages, small shops, inns and excellent restaurants which specialise in local seafood, all helping to create a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Aberdovey boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with four miles of golden sand-dune-backed shoreline running north to Tywyn, home of the world-famous Talyllyn Steam Railway and crab fishing. The beaches are popular with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen while the estuary attracts a wide range of watersports enthusiasts. The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complemented by the charm of the Dovey and Dysynni valleys nearby. An ideal area for walkers, climbers and wildlife watchers, and a wonderful all-year-round location.
