Once on Copperhill Street you will see Fat Face (in the square) – a few yards further up on the left-hand side, between 11 and 12 Copperhill Street, you will find a small alleyway, which leads to the cottage. 

We have provided a car park pass, which can be used in 2 car parks in Aberdovey (left in the cottage for you) or you can park for free in certain places – either further up the road under the railway bridge, where there are often spaces along the roadside, or down on the front opposite the main church & Britannia Inn. (Not the spaces at an angle marked 45 mins max!)

In the key safe on the wall to the left of the front door. Your access code will be given to you ahead of your stay. PLEASE REPLACE WHEN YOU LEAVE. If you lose a key call Louis for a spare and please get one cut at Dovey Marine.

All bed linen, towels and tea towels are provided for you.If you have any problems with the cleanliness of your property or if any bed linen or towels are missing on arrival, please call Scrubadub Cleaning on 01654 767143 or Louis on 07816 863667. They will happily ensure you have all you need.

The recycling trolley needs to go to the bottom of the alley every week on a Thursday evening please. The green bins are only emptied every 3 weeks (such a pain!) If this is during your stay, we will text you to ask if you could pop it at the end of the alleyway on Thursday night.

Household waste: Inside the wooden bin store between No 3 & 4 – please note the green bins are for general waste and the blue boxes are for recycling.

Non-Recyclable waste – Place in sealed plastic bags inside green bin – if this is full please take the black bags down to the bins along the front on the Wharf gardens

Bottle, Tins, Card & Paper Recycling: Place in appropriate blue boxes (in stack of 3)
There are also public waste bins on the grassed area on the Wharf which are emptied several times a day.

The boiler is in the cupboard in the bedroom. Please use the keypad on the wall inside the cupboard (top left) To put the heating on, press the small ‘menu’ button (3 dots and lines) below the big circular dial, then turn the circular dial to select ‘BOOST’ press the dial in again and turn the dial for as many hours as you need and then press the green tick – the temperature for the heating and water can be adjusted on the front of the boiler. There is also a heated towel rail in the bathroom to help dry towels – this only works when the heating is on – in the summer you can turn the radiators off individually using the thermostat valves on them.

It is a combi boiler, so the hot water is instant and there will always be plenty for you.

Above the front door

There is a hob and oven with grill. You have to use the timer function for the oven and grill to come on. There is an under counter fridge, with a small ice box, Tassimo pod coffee machine, kettle, toaster and a microwave. Please feel free to use anything that is in the cupboards and just replace anything substantial.

Living room
There is a SMART TV with BT TV & Sports package and a Netflix account. Netflix account email is and the password is aberlovely – then select 3 Evans terrace.

Remember after you turn the TV on to use the BT controller and turn the TV hub on too. Please be extremely careful if lighting the log burner; especially if you have small children with you. There is a temperature gauge on the flue to help you select the correct temperature to burn your fuel. We don’t supply fuel but it is available at Dovey Marine and Aberdovey Village Stores. Please remember you will need firelighters and kindling too J If you’re arriving late, maybe pick some up on the way.

The main bedroom is very spacious and has a king-sized bed. An optional single bed is available – please ask in advance if you require this so that we can prepare the bedlinen. The TV is Freeview only. There is a large chest of drawers and small wardrobe. You will find a hairdryer in the bedside drawer. The very old (joys of a listed property!) windows sometimes rattle in the wind – just wedge a folded bit of paper between the frame to stop this.

The bathroom has a walk-in shower, wash hand basin and WC. There is a heated towel rail that only works when the central heating is on. In the summer turn the radiators off at the valve and you can then use the towel rail to dry towels. The mirror lights up if you pass your hand underneath the right-hand corner. There is a supply of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in a wall mounted dispenser.

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 (dogs allowed) and Seabreeze (no dogs). The Coast Deli (dogs allowed) on the corner does great breakfasts and a varied evening meal menu, but be aware there’s no toilet on site, so you will have to pop over the road to the public toilets if needed. If you want pub grub then the Dovey Inn (dogs allowed on the hard floor area) and the Britannia Inn (dogs allowed in bar but not the restaurant) both have good varied menus. The Medina Coffee Shop is hidden up an alleyway next to the Pharmacy – they do fabulous sandwiches and lovely breakfasts, lunches and cakes too. 

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 are a number of good restaurants in Tywyn now – our favourite being The Salt Marsh Kitchen which has won several awards, The Retreat (great for home-made burgers, pizzas and cocktails). For a special treat, there is the Michelin Star award winning Ynyshir between Machynlleth and Aberystwyth and in Aberystwyth there is a fabulous deli called Ultracomida.

If you want to do an online shop before you arrive, both Asda and Tesco deliver to Aberdovey, but we do hope guests support the local shops where possible. There is a reasonably well stocked shop on the front – Aberdovey Village Stores – 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 Aberystwyth, as Barmouth and Machynlleth 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 Lavabread Sausage and Shortback bacon is delicious! 

Dovey Marine sell all sorts of beach stuff and hardware, as well as logs and firelighters.

• If you’re in Aberdovey for a while it’s well worth using the trains to visit the surrounding areas, if you’re only there a short while there’s plenty to do in the village 

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

• Visitors are welcome to try sea rowing at the rowing club at 10.00 Sat morning (small fee applies) meet on the jetty in front of the blue double doors.

• Go to the Literary Institute (on the right-hand side on the way to the Penhelig Arms – 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 Penhelig Arms and have a meal in the Fisherman’s bar.

• Play golf at Aberdovey Golf Club – booking required

• Play bowls, putting or tennis at Aberdovey Bowls Club.

• Use the putting green or tennis courts at The Treffedian Hotel (they simply ask that you buy a drink in return) 

• Opposite the Penhelig Hotel find The Roman Road – just walk along the lovely row of houses 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 and something to eat upstairs on the balcony at the Britannia Inn, watching the boats go by it’s the best seat in Aberdovey! 

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

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

• Have a latte at the Medina Coffee shop it’s up the little alley next to the Pharmacy

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

• Have BBQ or picnic on the beach  

• Walk the four miles along the beach to Tywyn. It’s around four miles there (or get the train to 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 (they do a pre Cinema menu if you’re going to The Magic Lantern). 

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

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

• 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 it has the loveliest whippy ice cream & fab toppings. 

• 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 Labyrinth (they don’t open in the winter months, so check online before you set off). 

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

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

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

• Take the train along the coast to Minfford and visit Portmeirion – it only takes 1hour 40 mins and is such a lovely journey. There’s a bit of a walk (1 mile) up to the village but it’s worth the effort – it’s such a magical place to visit for all the family. You can ask for a Ranger ticket on the train which means you can stop off at Barmouth or Harlech on your way back too. 

• 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. 

• For bird enthusiasts & RSPB members there are a number of places to go –
– Just out of Machynlleth, on the road towards Aberystwyth 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)
