Discover Your Perfect Welsh Getaway

Published on 2021-01-20 / By kd@trefeddianhotel

As a hotel, the Trefeddian is situated in an enviable hilltop position just on the outskirts of the pretty seaside village of Aberdovey (or Aberdyfi - the traditional Welsh spelling for the village). It offers you a great location to discover your perfect Welsh getaway. Nestled between the majestic mountains of southern Snowdonia and the stunning Cambrian coastline, where the river Dyfi meets the blue waters of Cardigan Bay, there are a plethora of attractions and activities which make Aberdovey and the Trefeddian Hotel a favourite destination for many visitors year after year. 

If you have not been to Aberdovey before, what does it have to offer? 

The beautiful beach, with over four miles of golden sands stretching from Aberdovey to Tywyn, offers plenty of space to enjoy building sandcastles with the family, to walk the dogs, take a refreshing dip in the sea or simply take in the invigorating sea air. Just a short walk from the hotel, the beach is definitely one of Aberdovey’s most popular highlights.

There are plenty of water sports to choose from - kayak up the estuary whilst soaking up the stunning views along the River Dyfi, join sailing regattas with the local Dovey Yacht Club or, if you are more adventurous, you could try SUP boarding, windsurfing or kite surfing - there is definitely something that will get your blood racing!

Aberdovey is also known as the place where the mountains meet the sea and it has access to a huge number of wonderful walks, whether you want to pick up the Welsh Coastal Path or explore the nearby mountains. Starting in the village, you can take an easy stroll along the old Roman Road leading to Picnic Island enjoying close-up views of the Estuary and the River Dyfi. Or, if you are feeling more energetic, visit the glorious waterfalls and forestry walks at Dolgoch Falls. If it’s a challenge you are after, climb to the summit of Cader Idris, the highest mountain in Southern Snowdonia.

If perfecting your golf is more your bag, Aberdovey boasts a historic championship 18 hole links golf course rated the third best course in Wales and regularly voted into top 100 courses in the UK. You can enjoy challenging links golf at its best with the course hugging the line of the sand dunes coupled with stunning views. After your round, you can retire to the hotel which overlooks the 16th green - an envious position for any golf lover.

With so many things to see and do in Aberdovey and the surrounding area, it is easy to see why so many people fall in love and come back year after year.  

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
