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.
"Good holiday spoiled by nit picking attitude of owner"

We are 13 golfing pensioners who had a wonderful week in this superbly appointed house. The booking procedures, key collection etc were straight forward and much thought had obviously gone into providing such a beautifully equipped holiday home. The location is excellent and the only real problem we encountered was trying to sort out the intricacies of the refuse and recycling scheme in the area.
We fully understood the reason for asking for a £200 good housekeeping bond and assumed it would be used to cover any breakages which might occur. Unfortunately the reasons that Mrs Zitron gave for keeping £37 of the bond (a paltry amount in the general scheme of things) left us completely gob smacked. While I admit that we did forget to switch the second dishwasher on and put out the small amount of rubbish accumulated on the final morning (the main rubbish went on Thursday), it was impossible to empty the first dishwasher which had not finished its cycle by 10am when we had to be out, especially as the cleaning contractor was hovering in the garden at 9.40am. We had representatives of 7 different families in our party some of whom I am sure would have rebooked the house for family gatherings and having had 12 years experience in the holiday trade there is no way that I would have jeopardized 7 potential bookings by having such an attitude which left a nasty taste in the mouth. I did write to Mrs Zitron regarding the matter but it might be worth pointing out to her that the last impression is usually the lasting one. A pity when so much effort has gone into the house.
Thank you for your 5 star rating and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your holiday. We are so glad that you did not allow this matter to overshadow your stay and thank you once again for your feedback.

"A great family holiday"

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.

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!

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!

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.
"A perfect family house in a perfect holiday place."

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!

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.
