Braich-Y-Celyn Lodge Beach Cottage description

Holiday home
This detached cottage is a former entrance lodge to a country estate and boasts wonderful estuary views. Located on the outskirts of the seaside resort of Aberdovey, this property is full of character and features beams, slate flooring, the original bread oven, a wood-burning stove, underfloor heating and original ornamental fireplaces in the bedrooms. With sleeping space for up to four people, the accommodation of this cottage has been sympathetically restored and is composed of a kitchen, dining room and cosy lounge.

Renowned for its mild climate, sandy beaches, sailing and a championship 18-hole links golf course, the picturesque harbour village of Aberdovey is often referred to as "an artist's paradise". Packed with pastel coloured cottages, small shops, inns and excellent restaurants which specialise in local seafood, the settlement offers a cosy, relaxed atmosphere. Aberdovey boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, including four miles of golden sand dunes running north to Tywyn - home of the world-famous Talyllyn Steam Railway. Popular with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and fishermen, these beaches make a wonderful spot for a day trip, whilst the estuary attracts a wide range of water sports enthusiasts. The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are also close by and offer a range of walks at different difficulty levels.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Everything about our stay was perfect. The Lodge, the views and the peaceful surroundings. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday and shall definitely be recommending it to our friends and family. It was a welcome break where we could unwind and relax in a very cosy comfortable place. Thank you for our memorable stay.

The view from the cottage is absolutely stunning, the location is perfect for a quiet holiday - and on a cold windy night the log burner hits the spot.
Mrs Johnston

Beautiful cottage in a spectacular location. Aberdovey is only a two minute drive and it's excellent for the beach and eating out.

Everyone, including the owner, was particularly helpful. A very comfortable and characterful cottage in an ideal position.
Mr Fowler
September 2011
Very quiet isolated location although it was near the main road. Traffic was very light and did not trouble us. Very good parking space for two cars. Made welcome by the owner with a bottle of wine. Views excellent from the cottage. Generally well equipped for most of our needs. We would love to stay there again.

Views were stunning and in a very good location close to Aberdovey. A particularly good base to explore Wales though not much open during our visit but this was expected.
Mr Marshall
July 2011
The weather, wildlife around the cottage, view of the estuary, beaches, the good food, how friendly people were, slower pace of life, how clean we found the towns and villages in Wales. We noticed the difference as soon as we re-entered England. Well done Wales!
Mrs Barker
October 2010
A very pretty cottage, with wonderful views from every window. Close to Aberdovey, which is a pretty little town with plenty of places to eat. Though it might be advisable to reserve a table on a busy Saturday evening. When we lit the woodburning stove in the lounge it was really cosy. The cottage is nicely decorated and we should really have counted how many decorative hearts we could find!
Mr Hewson

Mrs Jones

We loved the views across the estuary; it was amazing when the sun was shining on it when we got up. The log fire was great and we just liked the peace and quiet. A good base to travel around from with train and bus handy. A great place to wind down after all the sight seeing
Mr Tarling

A very good cottage in a lovely area.
Mr Warriner

Mrs Balson
August 2010
The cottage was very well appointed and was a good base to use for the various attractions in the area.
Mr Gelsthorpe
January 2010
The location was intimate and a perfect place for getting around Wales. The landlord had thought of everything to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as possible, even down to the little touches such as leaving the card for the video shop. There was a huge welcome pack that gave us lots of information for the local area. The decor was superb and really made us feel at home by using quality products throughout. A fantastic property all round!
September 2011
Lovely cottage with great view. Spotless and pleasant decor. Ideal spot for touring the area and very nice beach locally.

the house is well placed and easy to find, the layout was modern and well layed out with comfortable beds. For our first first holiday in Wales this was a good location to pick, we found plenty of places to go and eat, we dined out 6 out of 7 nights. We will defenently going back soon.

My elderly mother and I had a very good week staying in this cottage with plenty of room for four if needed. My mother was a little anxious about the gap in the banister at the bottom of the stairs but she adjusted and after that we just enjoyed its cosiness and superior views. It is very well equipped and has lots of little touches that show the thoughtfulness of the owner. We would stay there again in a flash as apart from its own features it is a good centre to explore and enjoy the mid Wales area.
September 2011
Our week spent at Braich Y Celyn was most enjoyable in a very comfortable cottage situated in an ideal private location. The advantage of being able to park outside is quite considerable for aberdovey, and the close proximity to the main seafront area is really convenient particularly with the free car park pass provided. The cottage is warm and comfortable with all modern conveniences apart from a microwave which would be difficult to fit in. Everything was as promised on booking and we will look to stay there again.
June 2010
lovely white cottage in a great location with amazing views. facilities are great and modern. lots of space for the little ones and also incl safety gates and cots. the kitchen was good but lacks pots and pans overall a great place to stay and will revisit in the future
