The house is impeccably furnished and decorated to create well-equipped accommodation of exceptional quality and style.

The accommodation is suitable for two families or a group of friends, and this suite is ideal for providing some additional privacy or an extra garden room with storage if it is unoccupied by any of the party. The house also boasts a sitting room warmed by an open fire, a luxury kitchen, spacious dining area, and games and entertainment room perfect for occupying the younger guests with TV, DVD and PlayStation 3 - ideal for keeping younger guests amused.

Step outside into the double-level garden and you have the perfect spot for relaxing after a long day out and about. This is a superb holiday home for a UK holiday to remember with those close to you.

The pretty village of Aberdovey is often called an artist's paradise because of its picturesque pastel painted cottages, eclectic little shops, traditional pubs and speciality seafood restaurants. This lovely harbour town has relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and wonderfully temperate climate, four miles of soft golden beaches, water sports and sailing opportunities and a great golf course ranked in the top 100 in the UK. The beaches of Aberdovey stretch north to Tywyn (home of the famous Talyllyn Steam Railway) along four miles of sand-dune backed coastline. Sunbathing, surfing, swimming and fishing are all popular beach pursuits here, and the estuary is perfect for a wide range of water sports activities. The stunning peaks of the Cader Iris and Aran Fawddwy mountains are close by, and are contrasted beautifully by the valleys of Dovey and Dysynni. Whether you love walking, climbing or watching the rich abundance of wildlife, Aberdovey makes the perfect holiday destination at any time of year.

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.

We always have a great short stay at Brodawel House. First class. We will be back.
Mr Whitehouse
March 2016
A most comfortable cottage, ideal for our needs.
July 2016
Fabulous house, spacious and well appointed. Perfect kitchen equipped for capacious appetites! Fantastic views. The ground floor apartment was perfect for my elderly mum, with wheelchair accessible facilities.
Mrs Scrivens
November 2015
Its our second stay in this house and there will be a third.
Mrs Dolhun
April 2015
A fabulous house - large enough to accommodate our party of 13 without us all falling over each other. If we wanted to get away from the crowd, there was plenty of space to do so. Loved all the different elements of the garden - lots of different places to sit out. Particularly like the fact that each bedroom had its own en suite so there was no waiting around for someone else to finish in the bathroom. In close proximity to the beach and beautiful sea views.
Mrs Selly
October 2014
The property was delightful, extremely well furnished and equipped and yet it has an individual feel. Homely and yet spacious. Aberdyfi is a lovely sea-side town and you can walk there along safe paths in a brisk 20 mins. Good taxi service too. Arriving by train is a delight.
Mrs Monk
October 2014
Very comfortable beds,beautiful bed linens. Lots of space to relax without being in the same room all the time with everyone else. Very close to the beach, walkable into Aberdyfi for shopping and eating.
Mr McCann
August 2014
The location is within easy travelling distance of Aberdovey. We enjoyed the facilities and that it could accommodate and cater for a party of 16, including young children.
Prof Eland
September 2014
There was plenty of flexible space for our large party, and the children were well accommodated. The garden was also safe for them.
Mrs Smith
December 2015
This House is absolutely amazing! The bedrooms are five star - so luxurious and each one with its own state of the art en suite. There was plenty of room for our very large family, we could all sit together for meals in the huge dining room. The kitchen has everything you'd ever need and then some! We were so very impressed.
Mrs Hanley
March 2014
We were very happy with the house, plenty of space for 11 adults. The house is so well equipped you could have prepared and cooked anything! Mixers, food processors, juicer and smoothie maker, even a bread maker, not to mention the coffee makers! The bedrooms were very nicely furnished and beds comfortable. The house was far enough out of Aberdovey to feel quiet but near enough to walk in and enjoy the town, we preferred walking all the way on the beach.
Mrs Green
August 2013
Superb house, had everything we needed. Lots of room for all 12 of us. Excellent location just outside of town. Fabulous views of the rugged golf course and sea.
Mr Harvey
August 2012
Ideal location and a wonderful house, perfect for our full family of 15!
Mr Parkes
January 2013
A fabulous large house with all mod cons. Spacious and comfortable.
Mr Baggott
March 2012
This was our third visit to Brodawel House as part of a party of 12. Everything about the property is first class and it is in a prime location within easy walking distance of Aberdovey. We think it would be very difficult to find fault with any aspect.
Mrs Bury
May 2012
The house was very spacious and well equipped.
Mr Perrins
March 2013
A particularly comfortable, warm and welcoming property with every conceivable appliance in the kitchen that you could want. All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds and excellent en-suites. We almost want to keep it a secret in case they are booked up and we cant get in again.
Mr Trenery
April 2013
This is a great house for a large party and the 15 of us had a wonderful week. Would thoroughly recommend it to others.
Mrs Standley
July 2012
The property was by far the best we had stayed in as a large group in terms of size, furnishings etc. Lovely location, just minutes from the beach and easy access to the shop and pub.
Mrs Stephens
February 2012
The location and house was perfect! There was everything and more provided. The welcome pack was fantastic.
Mr Baggott
November 2011
As a group of 12, we have stayed at this property before. As with our last visit, everything about the property is of the highest standard. It is also in a fine position, close to Aberdovey town and overlooking the golf course and dunes to the sea.
Mrs Olden
September 2011
Brodawel House is very well equipped with everything you could possibly want. It is beautifully clean and comfortable. We would definitely visit this house again.
Mr Jackson
September 2011
The best equipped house we have ever stayed in. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Local shops were adequate for our needs.
Mrs Ridge
July 2011
It was a fabulous house very well kitted out. We couldn't think of anything that wasn't provided that we would need of want!.
Mr Trenery
April 2011
Brilliant house, good location just outside wonderful Aberdyfi, plenty of space for our party of 14. Stunning raised decked outdoor sitting area. Would highly recommend it to everybody except for any dates when we want to use it again!
Mr Baggott
March 2011
All aspects of Brodawel House were splendid. In a fine location nestled on a slope and looking across the dunes. The communications we received from the owners and from Sykes Cottages were efficient, helpful and friendly. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived and incredibly well equipped.
Mr Telford
March 2011
We loved everything about it but the location was perfect. There were enough separate rooms for everyone to do their own thing. In 20 years of us renting large properties this has been the best. I was just about to send the owner an email to say the same thing!
Mr Dehdashty
July 2010
Excellent accommodation for 2/3 large families to stay. Excellent easy access to the sandy beach and plenty to do in the surrounding area. Good local shops for all your normal needs (3 miles). An all round good stay.
Mr Fulford
August 2010
Everything about the holiday was absolutely Fantastic. Brodawel House is one of the best places for anyone to stay in! It is set up to the highest standards; nothing is overlooked.
Mr Chandler
September 2010
Everything was perfect. The details on the website were already glowing but the house itself was even better. The size, layout, condition and location of the house couldn't have been better.
Mrs Clitheroe
July 2011
It was a pleasure to stay in such a tastefully decorated and equipped house. It was a great location too within walking distance of Aberdovey for ice creams and the beach for swimming and long walks - perfect!
Mrs Strange
November 2009
This is a beautiful house which is decorated and furnished to an excellent standard. It contains everything and more that you could possibly need for a great holiday.
Ms Skipper
January 2010
Plenty of room and the owners had tried to think of everything. Really good. Comfortable furnishings and we all agreed that it was the best 'larger' house that we had all stayed in.
February 2010
The house was great and the welcome pack was much appreciated. Have already recommended the property to friends.
Mr Knaggs
March 2010
Amazing detail has been put into this property - breathtaking. Welcome pack super. Location so peaceful.
Ms Dove
November 2009
Everything was absolutely fantastic. Great to have every room en-suite. A great deal of thought and expense has been taken on the interior of the property. We could not find fault with anything! Have already recommended property to friends.
Mr Everett
October 2009
Brodawel House is an excellent property, equipped to very high standard. We really enjoyed our stay there.
Mr Morgan
August 2009
We found Brodawel House to be excellent self catering accommodation. The owner was most welcoming on our arrival and made us feel instantly at home. The house was exceptionally well equipped and spotlessly clean and the welcoming pack fist class. The location is very good with its proximity to the beach.
Robin E
September 2014
Wonderful week in this beautiful spacious welcoming house. Great gardens front and back - enclosed which was great for the children to explore safely. Well equipped throughout and lovely bedrooms. To top it all superb granny annex for the olds! We look forward to staying at Brodawel again.

Beautiful location, short walk to the sand dunes and deserted beach. 15 minute walk from Aberdyfi which has shops and pubs, perfect walking distance for a meal in the evening. Large dining room, comfortable sitting room and a second sitting room but we couldn't get the games console to work in there, nice for a quiet sit down though. Excellent ground floor flat for elderly or disabled. Bedrooms luxurious, all with views of mountains or sea, lovely ensuites to every room so lots of privacy. Family with baby slept on top floor so not disturbed by noise when baby asleep. Kitchen so well equipped that you could have cooked a banquet! Only minus point was that as the cupboards were full of all the equipment there wasn't any where to put the food away. Garden lovely and sheltered with lots of seating. Our grand daughter loved the miniature patio set. We all felt really comfortable here and had an amazing week in a very special part of Wales.
Jo W
July 2013
Magnificent house and location, perfect weather for our stay in this relaxing part of Wales however the house had not been thoroughly cleaned prior to our arrival including dirty toilets, bathroom and windows. The BBQ collapsed during use resulting in a very dangerous safety hazard. The recycling requirements are a headache. No mobile signal from the house. I wonder how many people get their housekeeping bond returned to them?

What a fantastic place! We had a wonderful week at Brodawel House, a very clean & homely venue five minutes from Aberdovey station. The location is excellent with the dunes, golf course and sea just minutes away; and if the weather does not co-operate, then the house is a very comfy place to relax in (-we had a lovely warm afternoon playing Scrabble in the lounge as the rain came down!) The rooms were very clean and spacious, decorated to a high standard and we were impressed by the superb welcome pack. Our party of six had a great time; in hindsight we could have easily taken advantage of the home's size and invited another one or two couples more along, which would have helped out with the cooking! Brodawel House is lovely, the owners were engaging and very accommodating, and the overall impression is that of a very professionally-run holiday home. Thanks for a very pleasant stay, we're looking forward to booking again soon!
Mrs Williams

The house was beautiful and very well equipped. We had a wonderful time.
Miss Wells
June 2009
We were delighted with this property which we hired for a Diamond Wedding celebration. The standard exceeded our expectations and we will treasure our memories from a very happy time at Brodawel House. We would particularly like to thank the owner who made us feel so welcome on arrival. We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely home from home.
June 2013
Fifteen relatives staying together for a week seems like a recipe for arguments and disputes - but not at Brodawel House. Our multi-generational group (oldest 88 youngest 6)had a wonderful time. The secret is the excellence of the accommodation (all rooms en-suite - no queueing for the bathroom); excellent lounges (all with Sky) and dining room; and a well equipped and large kitchen. Good weather and the attractions of aberdyfi make this a perfect venue, and the helpfulness of the owners is a great bonus, as was the welcome pack which included several bottles of wine. The only irritation is the limited rubbish disposal arrangements which need to be improved. But a great holiday had by all. We would fully recommend it.
January 2012
This beautiful house was ideal for my family to get together in one place for a week. Everything you can think of in the kitchen and great to have a bathroom in every room. We had a great time. The only thing I would say was the windows needed a good clean outside. However it was at the end of the season so wind and sand probably had not been kind to them!
Marjorie and Family
October 2011
Helpful,friendly service. Exceptional welcome pack.The best equipped house we have ever stayed in over many years. All ages catered for. Very pretty location and beautiful countryside in the vicinity.Aberdovey itself and Twywn just up the coast both provided adequate facilities for pleasure and shopping and fantastic sunsets!
May 2011
We were a party of twelve and the six bedrooms we used were all en suite with their own individual decor and character. The property was exceptionally equipped and nothing had been overlooked. It was so good we have already re-booked!
June 2010
Outstanding house in every respect. Remarkable level of comfort and style. Appreciated by everyone in our group from young to old. Made to feel very welcome by a collection of food and wine and even a card for the birthday girl amongst us - celebrating her 90th. Excellent location with a great beach just across the and lots of fine walking and other activities nearby.
September 2010
This is a a great house, with something for all the family. We had all the comforts and facilities of a five star hotel - (what oohing and aahing when we saw our beautiful bedrooms) - but with the freedom to come and go when we wanted. The World Cup and Wimbledon were on the television when we were there - the men were in one room - the ladies in another - the children watching cartoons in the kitchen area - and there was still a spare television for this "Holby City" and "Casualty" fan. The house was a very short walking distance from a beautiful safe sandy beach and and shopping and amenities were only a few minutes by car or within 20 minutes or so walking distance. There were places of interest to visit, nearby, and train rides, donkey rides and crab fishing to delight young children. The house garden was beautifully laid out with places to sit where we could enjoy the sunshine at all times of day. We were blessed with warm sunny weather and enjoyed most of our meals - even breakfast - outside. We all had a wonderful holiday in a great house, in a beautiful place - with great weather!
September 2010
I think its true to say that we were all pretty much blown away by this amazing house! We all ran from room to room queeling with excitement when we arrived, the size, quality and standard of the decor and fixtures and fittings etc were superb. This is an ideal house for large extended families or groups as there is plenty of room for everyone the have their own space if needs be. All of our needs were catered for including items for the children ie stairgates, highchairs - even toys! Playstation and games (for the big children). The welcome pack we received was huge and even contained a selection of gluten free products for my mother - this was really appreciated. The beds and bedding were also super comfy - something I always worry about before going away but these were great. All is all we could not find any negatives with this property and would highly recommend it to anyone.
November 2010
Wonderful house in a fantastic location. The owner's finishing touches and attention to detail made the holiday extra special.
May 2011
in 20 yrs of renting large properties for family and friends this has been one of the best from its location virtually on the beach to the quality of the rooms. we are looking forward to going back.
