Nestled on the north banks of the Dyfi Estuary, Aberdovey is the definitive peaceful Welsh seaside village. A popular holiday resort with families and those keen to explore the surrounding Snowdonia National Park, the village also boasts a lovely harbour with excellent marine services. Along with various events organised by the local yacht club there are also superb opportunities for fishing, sailboarding and, of course, cruising on the wonderful blue waters of Cardigan Bay. The nautical highlight of the year is the annual regatta, which attracts yachtsmen and pleasure cruisers from all over the UK.
Outdoor enthusiasts would be hard pushed to find a more idyllic base from which to discover the surrounding countryside with itís spectacular mountain ranges, seemingly endless forests and myriad wildlife. Other attractions include an excellent 18 hole championship golf course, the famous Talyllyn Railway and a virtual treasure trove of historical sites peppered throughout the area, all within easy driving and often walking distance. And if you just want to chill the beaches are simply beyond criticism.
Accommodation in Aberdovey ranges from caravans and chalets to farmhouses and first class hotels. And you are always guaranteed the very best in warm Welsh welcomes and hospitality. The village itself has plenty of character with pleasant shopping, a good choice of dining and some truly magnificent pubs. In truth Aberdovey has everything you would expect from a premier Welsh Holiday destination. In fact it has everything you want plus that extra bit of magic.
The Talyllyn Railway is a historic narrow-gauge steam railway, set in the beautiful Mid-Wales countryside.
