We don’t like to boast, but we think Aberdyfi is pretty awesome. And it’s not just because of the fabulous little shops, eateries and things to do. But also the perfectly-positioned benches (ideal to sit and watch the world go by), the beautifully manicured wharf gardens and the feeling of bare feet on the warm golden sands.
It truly is a special place - a little village with a big personality and a lot to offer.
We share with you our five favourite things to do in awesome Aberdyfi.
Walk along the beach to Tywyn
This one’s a must whilst staying with us and it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing. If it's sunny, don the suncream. But if it's blowy and wet, just wrap up. We call these dampish blowy days a natural spa. These are the days when you won’t see a single soul around, which is a very special feeling.
Forget the waistline
It’s got to be done if you’re by the seaside. Treat yourself (and your furry friends too) to a delicious homemade ice cream from The Sweet Shop. Relax and watch the world go by on one of the perfectly placed benches in and around the village and breathe in the fresh sea air.
Don't fall in
Well, that’s the aim anyway. But if you do, it’s actually good fun and part the experience. Paddleboarding is a must for those that like to get wet. Let's SUP teach you all you need to know about how to stay on your board whilst affording you a completely different view of Aberdyfi along the way.
Save your bacon
There’s a reason you will see guests asking their waiter for scraps of bacon and that’s so they can take part in Aberdyfi’s world class sport - crabbing. Grab yourself a crabbing bucket and a net from one of the little shops in the village, and away you go. Don’t forget to pop the little fellas gently back in the sea after.
You don't need a trombone
But you do need a sturdy pair of shoes. A short walk up to the bandstand affords views to die for. You can see for miles on a good day, right down to St David’s in Pembrokeshire and across to the Llyn Peninsular in the north.
