  • "Another fantastic stay at Kynaston Thank you Matt for making us so welcome the whole family had a wonderful time."

    The cottage as usual was clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could wish for. The location is perfect for access to the village, the various shops and pubs and obviously the beach!

  • "We have just returned from Kynaston Cottage and just can't praise it enough, just perfect in every way from location, comfort (the beds are sooo comfy and quality of bed linen/towels is luxury ) everything provided."

    We have a Mini and it fitted on the spot in front of the cottage ( although we were told, by a passing gentleman that it must be OFF the yellow lines or you get a fine? ) Only thing I would say if you have a dog take something to secure the gate, we took cable ties but anything will do. We enjoyed it so much that we booked another week before we left :)

    Well equipped and surprisingly spacious for a cottage of that type. Car parking outside property is a plus. Excellent communication with owner. Would recommend.

  • "Top quality!"

    My partner and I stayed here, with our dog, for a long week in mid March … there are not many places in Aberdyfi that offer off street parking but no problems here. Location was brilliant, only a couple of minutes walk from the beach and a number of pubs, cafes and restaurants offering local delicacies. Everything inside the cottage was too quality from the roomy power shower to the comfy furniture. The beds and the linen where reminiscent of a five star hotel and to top it all off a log burner! If we ever return to Dyfi we would definitely hope to stay here. Andy & Paula North Wales

  • "A nice stay at short notice."

    The cottage was well placed for the town, restaurants, beach, and access to the coastal path. The parking outside the house was very tight, but just about do able for a biggish car. The back yard was usable, but small. The house itself was well equipped and comfortable. Overall a very nice stay.

  • "A very warm comfortable, well equipped cottage, within easy reach of the beach and shops."

    We ended up using the parking permit and put the car in the main car park as the off-road parking at the house is quite small, but looking around at other properties they seem to have the same issue, so it wouldn’t deter us from booking again.

    Parking was a bit of a problem, we took a very small car so managed to park in front of the house but with a medium size car this would have been difficult. The owner was extremely pleasant and helpful and we would happily stay there again.

  • "Kynaston Cottage in Aberdyfi is a wonderful holiday home."

    Two minute walk to a fantastic clean beach but far enough away to be quiet and restful. The cottage has everything you would need for a holiday and is very clean, superb comfy beds, plenty of hot water, clean towels, clean sheets and good heating. We love staying in this property. It is easy to get to any local tourist spot from here and there is plenty to do and see in the area. Fantastic views of Aberdyfi and right out to sea from the top of the hill which should be a must for any traveller. The owner is extremely helpful, we can park our car right outside the cottage and if we have visitors, they can park for free in the car park at the beach, because the property comes with one free parking space. We will be coming back to this property for sure.

  • "There are a couple of things that need attention The waste pipe from the bathroom upstairs was not in place on arrival, when the shower and wash basin were used the waste ran out across the path onto the road, this was also the case from the sink in the kitchen."

    We have a dog, the gate to the side of the property was not secure. The door handle on the double bedroom to the front of the cottage was very loose and we couldn't pull on it to close the door. It would be very useful to have some kind of washing line outside to dry laundry, or a washer/dryer in the property, there is a very good washing machine but no facility for drying which when travelling with dogs and children is essential. There is a clothes airer which we did use but when placed outside it was blown over on most occasions. None of the above issues are major and would not prevent us from re-booking, most are basic maintenance, which could occur on any property.

  • "Kynaston Cottage is a wonderful, cosy and comfortable place to stay, in an ideal location within easy walking distance of the beautiful sea front at Aberdyfi."

    The cottage was beautifully clean, with super-comfy beds and a brilliant wood burner. The kitchen and bathroom are both recently fitted and excellent. The owner has provided a good selection of guides to the area, books, games and DVDs, and there was everything we needed to make our holiday a good one. Just as a PS: there were no spare bin bags or cloths to use in the kitchen, and very little loo paper (no spares), so a note to owners to be a tad more generous with these basics might be an idea. It certainly didn't spoil our stay, obviously - there's a shop down the road - but a little supply of household essentials is always good. Overall, a fabulous cottage. Really handy to have the use of a parking permit for the week too.

  • "Fantastic location."

    The cottage had very comfy beds and good storage. The cleaner was still there when we arrived at about 3.15 which wasn’t ideal but she very quickly finished up. The shower was very good and kitchen well equipped. Would have benefited from a tumble dryer but other than that we really enjoyed the holiday. Sadly the view from all windows was poor but that didn’t effect our holiday at all.

    As always it is clean, well looked after. Matt is very friendly and helpful. It is centrally located a couple of minutes walk from the centre. There are many walks/runs that within minutes have you in the country. I can thoroughly recommend: Tallylyn railway 4miles away in Tywyn Seabreeze Restaurant (booking a must) Penhelig hotel is worth the walk round the coast for a good beer and possible food (booking a must) Red Kite feeding station near Aberystwyth. To see birds, but also has a number of walks, runs and bike trails as well as a couple of kids parks and a cafe.

  • "Lovely cottage in the heart of Aberdovey."

    3 minutes walk to the beach. Everything we needed was there. You would struggle to fit a large car in the parking space, I have a Suzuki Celerio and was just able to fit but a permit for the car park is provided as well. Milk, bread and butter were a welcome find when we arrived, very thoughtful. The only thing we would change would be the cleaners, it maybe because it's the end of the season but the house needs a spring clean. The Seabreeze does wonderful food. Despite having visited in the wettest week this year, it was enjoyable.

    The shower tray sealant was mouldy and the water outlet had black mouldy muck around it. I think more mention should’ve made regarding how close the railway line is to the cottage and that the first train goes past at bedroom height around 6.30 each morning’ The seagulls need a mention also as the start their noise around 3.45 am on the roof for around two hours.

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.
