Welcome to Aberdovey
Aberdyfi is a special place and those of us lucky enough to live here know it. But it is not a secret and we invite you to come and experience the charm and tranquility of this ancient little seaport.
One of the most beautiful rivers in Wales, the Dyfi, reaches the sea here. It is a wide, calm estuary with hills on both banks and an expanse of sky which changes with the seasons. The colours almost defy description - vibrant turquoise and blue in summer, pure white snow on green hilltops in winter, the pale lemon sun of spring and fiery red sunsets in autumn. It is an artists’ paradise.
Whatever your style of recreation, Aberdyfi has something to offer, though not funfairs nor nightclubs!
The village is unspoilt with miles of clean golden sand and sheltered dunes. For children we offer innocent fun -paddling, building sandcastles and crabbing off the jetty.
There are activities for all ages, some more strenuous than others. But the main thing about Aberdyfi is the magic of the village itself. Quaint old streets rise up to spectacular viewpoints. Aberdyfi lies within Snowdonia National Park, famous for its majestic mountain scenery. In the heart of the village you can enjoy browsing in specialist boutiques and art galleries or dine in exceptional inns and restaurants. Or you can simply sit in this idyllic setting and relax. If you are stressed out by work or motorway jams Aberdyfi offers the perfect break. We even get good weather! The estuary location means mild winters and a lot less rain than other parts of Wales.
You will not forget your first sight of Aberdyfi as you turn a bend on the road or look out of the train window and see our village nestling by the sparkling water. We hope you will come and, if you do, we promise that you will return time and time again.

• Walking, climbing and cycling on paths around the village and in the Snowdonia foothills. Our local mountain, Cader Idris has spectacular scenery not to be missed.

• Shopaholics may enjoy browsing in Aberdyfi’s specialist shops and in local street markets at Machynlleth and Tywyn.
