Welcome to Aberdovey

Aberdovey sits on the northern bank of the River Dyfi estuary and is home to just over 1,000 people.

We’re lucky enough to experience everything the area has to offer every day – it’s our pleasure to welcome you to enjoy it too.

Coastal bliss

Aberdovey’s beach is a four-mile stretch of stunning golden sands and lapping waves.

The beach and harbour area offer everything for watersports fanatics, including paddleboarding, windsurfing, kayaking and rowing,

Further into the estuary, enjoy deep sea fishing or yachting.

For the children, or adults seeking a slower pace, crabbing from the harbour jetty, ice creams and sandcastle-making are all on offer.

The wilds of Snowdonia

Away from Aberdovey’s beach and harbour, you’ll find some of Mid-Wales’ finest countryside.  Enjoy panoramic views from The Willow Hill, taking in the natural beauty of the surrounding area.

Snowdonia offers adrenaline-packed experiences, but also the kind of idyllic scenery best photographed by memory.

If you’re feeling adventurous, take in a hike up one of Wales’ three peaks – and Southern Snowdonia’s tallest – Cadair Idris.

Or, if you prefer your Snowdonia experience to be less strenuous, spend some time relaxing at the breathtaking Dalgoch Falls.

Culture, sport, food and drink

Aberdovey and Southern Snowdonia are packed with history and no visit is complete without a trip on the village’s narrow gauge stream train, Talyllyn.

Pass through stunning countryside and hop off to spend some time in some of Mid-Wales’ quintessential rural villages.

The best of the area’s history is captured in the abandoned slate mine at Corris, while the market town of Machynlleth features quaint antique shops and street markets, as well as the Museum of Modern Art.

Of course, there’s no better way to dine than al-fresco at your Willow Hill pod.

But if you fancy venturing out, there are some excellent restaurants and pubs in Aberdovey and the surrounding area.
