There are lots of great places to eat out, but you will have to book well in advance in the summer. Our favourites in Aberdovey are the Penhelig Arms in the fisherman’s bar and Seabreeze. The Coast Deli on the corner does great breakfasts and lunches as well as evening meals and it now has a sister business further along called Coast to Go serving a large selection of hot and cold food. 

If you want pub grub then the Dovey Inn and the Britannia both have decent menus. Our kids love The Fridge in the daytime for burgers, hot dogs nachos & shakes and of course the pink ice-cream shop with its many flavours is tremendous! The Medina Coffee Shop also has some great sandwiches and cakes. 

The fish & chip shop lets you eat in or take-away – be prepared to queue in the evening as it gets very busy in the peak times! There is an Indian restaurant the Bay of Bengal in the square that also does takeaways. They don’t have a liquor licence but you can take your own beer and wine and they only take cash. 

There are a number of good restaurants in Tywyn now – our favourite being The Salt Marsh Kitchen which has won several awards and across the road The Retreat is great for home-made burgers, pizzas and cocktails. 

For a very special treat, there is the Michelin Star award winning Ynyshir between Machynlleth and Aberystwyth and in Aberystwyth there is a fabulous Spanish deli & restaurant called Ultracomida.

If you want to do an online shop before you arrive, both Asda and Tesco deliver to Aberdovey, but we do like to support the local shops where possible. There is a reasonably well stocked shop on the front – Aberdovey Village Store – as well as a Post Office/ General Stores just past the railway bridge (the bridge you can see from the park at the end of the beach). There are 2 good sized Co-op stores – one in Machynlleth and one in Tywyn (the Tywyn store will deliver your shopping for you if you don’t want to bring it back yourself, – handy if you’re walking along the beach!) 

If you need cash, there is a cash machine by the pedestrian crossing in the village, but it charges for withdrawals. You can get free cashback at the Post Office (mentioned above) and we’re told that both The Dovey and Britannia both do cashback but we’ve never tried. The nearest Bank cash machine is Tywyn, then Machynlleth and Aberystwyth, as Barmouth have lost theirs now. 

The Coast Deli sells bread, eggs and milk as well as lovely cheeses etc and there’s a great butcher yards from the cottage – their Laverbread Sausage and Short-back bacon is delicious!.
Dovey Marine sell all sorts of beach stuff and hardware.

• Go crabbing on the jetty… bait is available at the butchers, the RNLI shop at the lifeboat station and the gift shops.

• Go to the Literary Institute (on the left-hand side on the way to the village centre – look for the anchor at the front) and read a book or use the free Wi-Fi overlooking the sea (wet days?)

• Go to the Craft Centre at Corris – there’s a Gin distillery, Welsh Jewellery shop, wooden crafts and children can make and paint pottery, candles and chocolate bars. There’s also an underwater boat ride through caves – King Arthur’s Labrynth (they don’t open in the winter months, so check online before you set off)

• Go to the Penhelig Arms and have a meal in the Fisherman’s bar.

• Walk The Roman Road – just walk turn left outside the gate until you reach a gate to the park, then walk along until you see a path along the cliff side, it’s such a pretty walk with Roman steps cut into the rocks up to picnic island.

• Enjoy a drink upstairs on the balcony at the Britannia Inn – watching the boats go by.

• Choose an ice-cream from the many flavours at the Pink ice-cream shop you can ask for half and half if you like!

• Walk along the beach to Tywyn – it’s around four miles there or get the train for around £2.30 return!

• Go to Magic Lantern cinema in Tywyn – it’s like stepping
back in time!

• In Tywyn, we love eating at the Salt Marsh Kitchen.

• Take the train to Harlech and see the castle and lovely little shops.

• Play Tennis, Crazy Golf, Shuffleboard, Table Tennis or Quoits at the municipal park in Tywyn.

• Eat at Blasau (The Royal House) in Machynlleth – lovely little black and white painted deli/coffee shop right by the crossing, just past the clock tower.

• Visit old curiosity shops (& Ian Snow shop) in Machynlleth.

• Go to swimming pool in Tywyn – they do family float fun sessions and a gym.

• Jump off the jetty (you’ve not really visited if you don’t do this!).

• Go and see the waterfalls at Dolgoch – you can pick up the Tal-y-Llyn railway in Tywyn to Abergynolwyn, which passes over the path to the falls. It’s a beautiful walk but not suitable for very small children or pushchairs as there are some steep drops.

• Go to the Honey Ice Cream shop in Tywyn.

• Have a latte at the Medina Coffee shop (up the little alley next to the Pharmacy) or No 8 which has nice little gifts.

• Go to Barmouth for the day (you can park at Fairbourne – follow signs for steam railway – & get the water taxi across the bay) – try the Mermaid Fish & Chip shop near the railway station. There is a great Indian restaurant at Fairbourne too.

• For bird enthusiasts & RSPB members there are a number of places to go –
– Just out of Machynlleth, on the road towards Abersytwyth is the Osprey Centre – the guides are very knowledgeable.
– 10 miles east of Aberystwyth on the A44 you can see the Red Kites being fed – 2 pm daily and 3 pm when it’s British Summer Time.
– There is a RSPB reserve at Yn-Y-Shir (also on the road from Machynlleth to Aberystwyth).

• Build a fire on the beach with driftwood at night & toast marshmallows or eat fish & chips.

• Have BBQ or picnic on the beach.

• Take the train to Minfford and visit Portmeirion – a great day out but no dogs allowed.
