Gwynedd - Aberdovey

Aberdyfi (English: Mouth of the River Dyfi), or Aberdovey (the Anglicised spelling is still in common use) is a village on the north side of the estuary of the River Dyfiin Gwynedd, on the west coast of Wales.

The village was founded around the harbour and shipbuilding industry, but is now best known as a seaside resort with a high quality beach. The town centre is on the river and seafront, around the original harbour, jetty and beach but it stretches back from the coast and up the steep hillside in the midst of typical Welsh coastal scenery of steep green hills and sheep farms. Penhelig, with its own railway station, is the eastern part of the town.

Aberdyfi is a popular tourist attraction, with many returning holidaymakers, especially from the metropolitan areas of England, such as the West Midlands, which is less than 100 miles to the east. A relatively large proportion of houses in the village are now holiday homes, resulting in high house prices. The town is located within the Snowdonia National Park. In the 2011 census, 38.5% of the population of Aberdyfi ward identified themselves as Welsh (or combined).

The property is situated 3 miles from Aberdyfi on the hillside overlooking the estuary. Otters, buzzards and red kites are all frequently seen from the terraces, and a wide array of waterfowl, waders, and seabirds are visitors at each low tide. 

The Daily Telegraph described the view from Glandyfi Castle as "undoubtedly the most magnificent view from any house I know in Britain". We would disagree as we face the castle and without doubt the southerly view from our terraces is even more breathtaking.

Aberdyfi itself has an award-winning links golf course, sailing, fishing, and a host of other watersports. The Riverside in nearby Pennal is renowned for its good food.

The BBC's popular Springwatch series visits theRSPB's Ynys-hir reserve during May and June. The reserve is across the estuary from the farm and apartments.
