Description

It might stand in the foothills of mighty Snowdonia. But this contemporary apartment may as well have been transported straight from Scandinavia, thanks to its relaxing use of warm softwoods, white tones and minimalist, yet practical furniture.

A room with a view


When designing the apartment, which is set in a former stable block, the focus on its surroundings was never forgotten. That’s why a picture window is the focal point of the open plan living area, with comfortable seating from which you can gaze out over the Dyfi Estuary. An internationally important habitat that borders sand dunes and mudflats, many wetland birds migrate thousands of miles to feed and roost here. There are stunning displays of flowers in spring and colourful fungi in autumn.

You’ll reach the apartment through a charming courtyard laid with pretty flagstones and planted in a semi-formal style. Climb the external staircase to Apartment 4’s dedicated entrance on the upper level. You enter into the hallway, before revealing that stunning living area. The kitchen, which is fully fitted with integrated appliances, is the height of sophisticated, deceptively simplistic style. Patio doors open onto decking and a second aspect toward the tree-lined valley below you.

That Scandi-inspired sense of style is on show once more in the bedrooms. Sloping ceilings with interesting architectural features, recessed gable windows and a whitewashed palette that feels light and airy all contribute to the European way of life. Yet this is an authentically Welsh location that never forgets its roots. The apartment is set in landscaped grounds above woodlands packed with native trees and an ecosystem that has existed here for thousands of years.

Bedrooms and bathrooms


There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms in Apartment 4, The Old Stables. The master bedroom has zip and link beds that can be configured as super-king or standard twin when booking, while the second has a kingsize bed and en-suite shower room. There is also a shower room off the master bedroom to complete the accommodation.

 

Reviews

Beautifully appointed apartment with simply stunning views. In a great location that was just a few minutes drive from Aberdyfi. We absolutely loved it! There are quite steep steps up the the apartment front door but to have that view, they are well worth it!

Mrs F,

We had a wonderful stay in the gorgeous apartment. The views of the Estuary were outstanding and changed every day! The place was spotless on arrival. Its about a 5 minute drive to the gorgeous town of Aberdyfi with its fantastic beach. Would definitely recommend and hope to return some day. Thank you to the property owner Richard who was great all the way through with regards to emailing and information. Thank you.

Mr B,

We really enjoyed our time here the views were fantastic. It's also very well fitted out, clean and tidy. Its a great place to relax and use as a base to visit the area.

Mr P,

Fantastic accommodation & fantastic views, would highly recommend! Everything in the apartment was quality! The owner was extremely accommodating to our very last minute request, which we were so grateful for. We hope to return some day.

Mrs W,

Quality apartment and very clean. Beds very comfortable.

Mrs H,

We have stayed at The Old Stables before but not in this apartment. This was very well furnished, very light and clean, with beautiful views from the picture window.

Mrs D,

Incredible location and wonderful accommodation. The views over the estuary were fabulous and the little woodland area next to the balcony was alive with birds, it was hard to know where to look - at the oystercatchers and egrets etc on the estuary or the woodpecker in the trees or the buzzards hunting overhead. The accommodation itself was clean, modern, very comfortable and included everything you needed for a lovely relaxing holiday. We received excellent, detailed information about the property, how to get there and the local area before we arrived. The owner was very responsive and friendly, available on email and phone if you needed him (but we didn't because everything was fantastic). If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful accommodation, views and wildlife entertainment at the property, then there is a fantastic, very quiet RSBP reserve 20mins car journey away, alive with more wildlife. Aberdovey itself seemed a very friendly place with picturesque buildings and lovely beach/ harbour area and walks onto the Welsh coast path. In the accommodation information it recommended a trip to Ynyslas beach near Borth, which was a wonderful, quiet, long stretch of sandy beach with views back to Aberdovey and we were lucky to watch horses riding along the beach and into the water. On the way back from the beach we stopped off at the Furnace in Machynlleth (definitely worth a visit) with a beautiful waterfall and amazing water wheel. There was plenty more to do around the area but after sitting on the balcony, glass of wine in hand, relaxing watching the birds and taking in the view it proved very difficult to leave the accommodation! We will be returning as soon as we can! Thanks to the owners for a fantastic holiday to remember.

Dr W,

This is a really lovely apartment with the most amazing views over the Dyfi estuary, it’s actually breath-taking. The apartment is finished to a high standard and was very clean. There are some nice touches from the owners including a parking pass for local public car parks. There was excellent information shared in advance of our stay and I’d absolutely recommend the property. We are already looking forward an opportunity to revisit!

Mrs H,

We were wowed from the moment we walked into the accommodation, it was lovely! Beautifully refurbished to a very high standard and comfortable too! The view is absolutely stunning, I could have spent hours just looking out those windows at the Estuary, so relaxing. I had great communication with the landlord prior to arrival, he very kindly had given us information about the local area and also made all the provisions to make sure the property was clean and safe, we were even left a little COVID pack with our own cleaning products. Local area is lovely, we visited Aberdyfi beach a few times and Ynyslas sand dunes and beach. We also visited Dolgoch falls and The Mawddach Trail which is a short drive away. We hiked up Cader Idris in Snowdon national park, all the way up to Llyn Cau, a large glacial lake nestled between the walls of the mountain. A day trip to Portmeirion was also worth the drive, so unique and pretty. We really really had a wonderful holiday, which really goes to show you don’t need to travel abroad to have a memorable time!”

Miss Luci S,

Beautiful property in a peaceful location with wonderful, ever-changing estuary views. Ideal place to relax, well-equipped, extremely comfortable and stylish. We will be back!
