The North Wales region
Situated in the quaint welsh seaside village of Tywyn close to Aberdovey, Bryn Crug, Abergynolwyn, Machynlleth and within easy reach of Barmouth and Aberystwyth.
North Wales has something to offer for everyone's taste.
There are plenty of places to visit, including castles, gardens, museums and family parks.
The Tywyn area
Tywyn has a sunny west facing 'Blue Flag' sandy beach. Don't miss the spectacular sunsets over the bay. From early Spring through till Autumn, dolphins and porpoise can be spotted close to the shore, an amazing site to see! Its not unusually to see them on a daily basis in schools of up to 20. Tywyn is possibly the only place on the West Coast where you can park for FREE virtually right on the beach.
There is level access to the town where there are supermarkets, shops, cafes, banks, a post office, cinema, health centre, hospital, several churches, leisure centre and an indoor swimming pool. Just 5 minutes drive is the harbour village of Aberdovey, with the famous Aberdovey Golf Course plus several good restaurants & pubs.
For water sport enthusiasts and visitors with families, there are uncrowded, sweeping, sandy beaches in Tywyn or Aberdovey (just a few minutes away) . Depending on the conditions, Tywyn is a focal point for surfers & kayakers. Aberdovey is a well known wind surfing & sailing centre. Jet skiers are tolerated in both resorts!! Fishing trips can be arranged in Tywyn & Aberdovey all year round.
This area is full of history dating back to pre historic times. Just get slightly of the beaten track on the dozens of public footpaths and you will come across, standing stones, stone circles, abandoned farmhouses, castles & ancient churches.
Places within a just few miles NOT TO BE MISSED:
Aberdovey, lovely old fishing village, GOLF & SAILING haven, with many good restaurants, pubs & coffee shops.
St Cadvans Church in Tywyn dating back 1500 years with the Cadvan Stones, which are apparently the oldest known inscriptions of the Welsh language.
Dolgoch Falls, spectacular waterfalls and woodland walk, look out for fairies and witches!
Cregennan Lake near Arthog, stunning location, with views of the Mawddach Estuary.
The Barmouth Bridge, built by Brunel. You must walk over it and enjoy the Mawddach, then explore Barmouth, with excellent beaches and the harbour. There are good shops, numerous coffee shops & pubs. The Last Inn & Davey Jones Locker are particularly good.
Cader Idris & Llyn Cau, most walkers agree is more scenic than Snowdon.
The Bearded Lake above Aberdovey. Mystical place of legends, with amazing view of the Dovey Estuary.
The Dysynni River & reed beds. A wild life haven for, geese, ducks and herons. Fishing with a permit.
Bird Rock. 500 years ago the sea came up to the rock, but the Cormorant still breed here. Also, look out for the ruined Iron Age fort near the top of the rock.
Tal-y-llyn Lake, just beautiful!

"Fantastic property right by the beach"
We stayed at The Gables for one week at the end of July. The property is furnished to a very high standard and everything you could possibly want is provided. There were 8 of us but the house is so spacious with plenty of seating for everyone. We loved the kitchen, the reclining chairs and the hot tub. We took our little Westie along and the garden is really secure so she could go about her "seagull patrol" without us having to worry that she could get out. It's a real bonus that the house is so close to the beach and the views are fantastic. Tywyn is a very quiet town but having said that we didn't find ourselves short of anything to do. There is a lovely little outdoor leisure centre if you walk down the promenade and cross over the road. Here you can play crazy golf, skittles, tennis, pitch and putt and a game we hadn't played before - shuffle board. It's very cheap and dog friendly and stays open 'til late (even if it rains). Whilst there are very few shops on the promenade (a couple of amusements and cafes) there are plenty of gift shops and places to eat on the main high street. There is also a cinema and an indoor pool and the Co-op and Spar shops provide everything you need if you are eating in (we found the little shop on the caravan site to be cheaper for a lot of things though). We walked to the Talylln Railway Station (10 mins) and got the steam train up to the waterfalls which we all enjoyed. You can jump on and off at the different stops and you can also take the dog along. If you have young children there is a lovely playground at the stop with the café. We also had a walk out to the Ice Cream shop and sampled the honey ice cream. If you want to do some crab fishing then you can't beat the jetty at Aberdovey which is a very short drive away. The crabs were literally jumping into the bucket!! Going a little further afield I would recommend a trip to Barmouth. We made this a little more interesting by parking in Fairbourne (approx. 25 mins) and taking the ferry boat across. It's just a small boat but it's only £3 return (dog went free) and it really cuts down on the driving. You can take the steam train from Fairbourne to the ferry stop but we drove most of the way and parked in the carpark at the very end of the road. At Fairbourne you will also find the riding stables at Bwlch Gwyn Farm. We found this really good value for money with our two teenagers going on a 1 hour trek for only £20 each. They were happy for us to walk along side with the dog as well. Another fun feature of this Farm is their dog sitting service and dog agility courses which take place at the weekend. We didn't discover this until later so we were unable to take part which was a shame. Whilst in Fairbourne you should take a walk up to the Blue Lake. It is a good 30 minute uphill walk (the locals will direct you) but it really is worth the effort. If it's a warm day remember to take some swimming things so you can cool off when you reach the top.
If the weather isn't so good I would recommend a trip to the Corris Craft Centre. It's not very far away by car and children can take part in a variety of activities including candle dipping and chocolate making at reasonable prices. The King Arthurs Underground Labyrinth can also be found here.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at The Gables and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone. The bottle of wine on arrival and the phone call from the owner to ensure we were happy with everything was a nice touch. It was also good to know that the housekeeper was only a text or call away if we needed anything. The free WIFI was also appreciated by everyone.

"Home from home"
First stay at this excellent property although already booked again for next year which really says it all. Comfortable property in beautiful part of Wales and well equipted with everything you could wish for. Ice cream factory in Tywyn well worth a visit and in the words of my 10 year old son the best ice cream I have ever tasted!

"Ideal location, wonderful outlook."
The house was everything it claimed to be with an outlook to sea and sunsets above our expectations. We had a very varied group (94 to 40) and everyone was catered for.
If I had to be critical the dining chairs were not too comfortable especially for the elder relatives and the kitchen and downstairs double room shower could have been cleaner. That said I would recommend this to anyone and will go back again very soon if only to experience the hot tub and have a BBQ with that amazing view.

"Wow what an amazing house in a prime location"
We stayed at The Gables in Oct, we were greeted on arrival by Mandy the lovely housekeeper who showed us around. The house is huge and absolutely beautifully equipped , no expense has been spared. Every thing was catered for even down to an egg cup. There is a well stocked CoOp in town and a small shop in walking distance.The hot tub was a hit even in October but then the weather was very kind to us . Over the garden wall is the fantastic beach and behind the house views of the Snowdonia National Park what more could you want , we will definitely be visiting again. Thank you

I cannot recommend The Gables highly enough. Our group ranged in age from 80s to 9 and everyone agreed that the house was fantastic and that the house had everything you would expect and more. It is very spacious and relaxing. Most of us made use of the hot tub and the kids certainly enjoyed it - we were very lucky with the weather the week we were there, so the hot tub was in use every night. The house has a wonderfully relaxed feel about it, and you certainly don't feel like you are all living on top of each other. The facilities in general were fantastic, and the kitchen is lovely (much better than my own one!). The fact that the house is right on the promenade is fantastic, and it is very clean. Don't hesitate, book straight away!

"Fantastic house with a wonderful view"
The house was extremely well equiped, comfortable, clean and had the extra touch of the hot tub. The view of the sea everyday was the icing on the cake!

"Perfect location, perfect accommodation, perfect weather - just lovely !"
The Gables is a beautiful 4 bedroomed, 5 bathroomed bungalow, with the beach right at the bottom of the garden. You can stand and look over the wall and see the dolphins swimming out at sea and we saw some really beautiful sunsets. The accommodation is superb and was ideal for our extended family, everyone had their own bathroom and the weather allowed us to dine outside alfresco style most days. We strolled into Tywyn most days, and although its is not very big, there are a few pubs, a cinema and a variety of shops .For everyday food shopping the local Co-op and Spar offered good value for money. Also there is a small Nisa shop just a few hundred yards away from the Gables, that is very handy if you should run out of wine.....The train station is within easy reach and we took a train to Barmouth along the coastal route which is very scenic. Self catering at the Gables is a pleasure as the large family kitchen/diner has everything you need, with well stocked cupboards of saucepans, dishes and utensils. We prepared meals most evenings and only on the last night did we venture down to the local pub for a farewell meal. All the family agreed that is was a great holiday and we hope to return again some day.
