Cosy Fisherman's Cottage in the very heart of Aberdovey -Pet Friendly

Cottage in Aberdovey with fireplace
Cosy one bedroomed cottage nestled in a private terrace right in the centre of Aberdovey just set back from the main square. All amenities are in easy reach including the pet friendly beach and numerous restaurants, pubs and shops.
This charming cottage retains many of its original features including a wood burning stove with slate fireplace and oak flooring. It has a terraced enclosed separate rear garden that overlooks the village and estuary.

This cute, cosy cottage is ideal for couples- it has a light airy feel to the layout but a lovely wood burning stove cosy up to in the evening. Whilst it is tucked away in a secluded Terrace you are still right in the heart of the village just steps away from the dogs allowed beach, the restaurants and the lovely pet friendly pubs.
There is also an enclosed terraced garden which overlooks the village towards the estuary a real sun trap in the summer!

Once on Copperhill Street drive straight up and when you see FatFace on your right look for a small alleyway on your left in fifty yards between the two white houses. You can park to unload at the end of the alley but then you will need to move your car either further up the road under the railway bridge where there are often spaces along the roadside or down on the front opposite the main church if there are no spaces there there are two main car parks in Aberdovey one opposite the beach and the other next to the Penhelig Arms just past the railway bridge.

There will be a car park permit on the table for you to use whilst you are at the cottage. It is valid in both pay & display car parks in Aberdovey and any other Gwynedd Council run car parks.

Check in is 4pm and check out at 11am we can sometimes change these if requested in advance.

Key found in key-safe to the left of the front door.

Recently refurbished to a high standard, this beautiful former Fisherman's cottage at Evans Terrace will provide you with the perfect seaside holiday in the heart of Aberdovey - a picturesque coastal village.
Situated in a secluded terrace, set back from the main square, you will be a hop, skip and a jump away from all this village has to offer and the local beach. The sandy beach is segregated into a family friendly area for building sand castles, water sports or a spot of crabbing off the ever popular jetty whilst further along is a pet friendly beach stretching for several miles. You will be in easy reach of shops, pubs and restaurants, whilst far enough away to remain undisturbed at night.
This charming cottage retains many original features, including a wood burning stove and slate fireplace. It also has many modern amenities including oak flooring throughout the ground floor, Wi-Fi and a fully equipped modern kitchen and bathroom.

Number 3 Evans Terrace 1 Bedroom

The boiler heats water on demand and so there will always be hot water available.
There should be plenty of cleaning products under the sink for you to use during your stay.
There is a Tassimo coffee machine and microwave.

Living room:
we don't supply fuel for the log burner but you can buy everything you need just across the road at Dovey Marine.
Please be extremely careful if lighting the log burner especially if you have small children with you.

The boiler is situated in a cupboard in the bedroom with instruction booklets in the top drawer should you want to set the heating on a timer. Please remember to turn this off when you leave.

The heated towel rail works when the central heating is turned on (see notes above).

If you misplace a key there are spare ones kept at Scrubadub or call Louis.
Please remember to lock the doors, close windows, turn off central heating and turn off all light switches when you leave the property.
Household waste: The bin is in the wooden bin store.Place in sealed plastic bags inside the green bin if this is full please take the black bags down to the bins along the front so there is room for the next guests

Unfortunately rubbish is only collected once every 3 weeks in Aberdovey please ask the neighbours if you are there on Thursday if the bins are going to be collected next morning and wheel down to the bottom of thie alleyway. IF IN DOUBT PLEASE PUT THE GREEN BIN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ALLEYWAY EVERY THURSDAY EVENING

Bottle Recycling: Place in the stacked recycling box trolley in between the bins in the bin store.
Collection day and point: Early every Friday morning at bottom of the alley
There are public waste bins on the main car park by the children’s play area

All bed linen, towels and tea towels are provided free of charge.

HEATING: There is central heating throughout, each radiator has a thermostatic control and the heating is switched on inside the boiler cupboard in the bedroom. Simply turn the dial to the required heat be careful not to set the radiators too high if you have little ones. The heated towel rail only works when the central heating is on so in the summer just turn the radiators off with the thermostatic controls and that will leave just the towel rail on.
Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi is BTHub6-PT5X Password iQmtpFm3YyWb. It works best downstairs. You can also get free Wi-Fi at the Literary Institute, Dovey Inn, The Britannia and The Penhelig Arms. Depending on your network the phone signal is quite poor but good spots are along the front by the car park and near the Dovey Inn.

Aberdovey you are lovely!
Great time, perfect cottage and lovely location. Aberdovey exceeded my expectations. What a fabulous place, definitely one of my favourite coastal towns. Cottage was very cosy and we loved the fire place. Perfect size for a couple with golden retriever :)

5/5 Excellent

What a disappointment
Unfortunately we were unable to go for this much-anticipated weekend away due to the beginnings of the Coronavirus crisis. Lisa was very understanding and helpful and we will look to re-book as soon as things get back to normal. I have had to rate as if we stayed there in order to submit this - but from what I saw online and the helpfulness of Lisa I know we missed out on a great weekend at a lovely property

5/5 Excellent

Nice cosy cottage - will definately be back.
The cottage is small but just right for us and our daughter.
