We wanted to take a short break to recharge our batteries and thought nothing could be better than Aberdovey - there are plenty of things to do around, but no particular pressure to tick the boxes. We are thankful to our stars that the Crow's Nest at The Lookout was available owing to a prior cancellation, nothing could be better!...

Aberdovey never disappoints and neither do The Lookout Apartments. This was a much looked forward to return visit. The apartments are modern, very comfortable and a delight. The position on the sea front affords a wonderful view, and you can sit and watch the world go by. I cannot recommend The Lookout highly enough, we love it and are already...

We have just returned from our anniversary weekend at The Lookout, it was our first stay there, although we stay in Aberdovey a lot. Jules and Lisa are great owners, very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the lower deck which is an open plan apartment, on the first floor and dog friendly. We liked the fact that it was...

We have just got back from a week at the lower deck and we had a fabulous stay. The lookout is perfect. It has the feel of a good hotel and yet has all the facilities and space you need from an apartment. The views across the beach are stunning and the accommodation could not be better positioned. We have...

This is the second visit we've made to this outstanding apartment. The view is magnificent, the apartment clean, modern and spacious and Jules and Lisa are the perfect hosts. Fans of Aberdyfi will need no introduction to the attractions of the area but this really is the perfect location to stay. The unique aspect is the combination of comfort with...

We enjoyed a 2 night stay in the Crows Nest suite. The room was really fab, it felt really light and airy. Lovely toiletries. The views out from the room were the high point, it meant even when we wanted a break from the sun we could sit in the apartment for a couple of hours watching the kite surfing...

Fantastic apartment-fantastic views!!!!!! we stayed in the 2nd floor upper deck for 5 days. We had the most relaxing holiday we have had for some time, just sitting looking out of the window with a glass of wine watching the sun go down over the sea is something we will not forget for a long time.

We stayed on the top floor of the Lookout in the Crow's Nest for five days in July. The studio apartment has stunning views of Aberdovey beach and bay, and is finished to a high standard throughout. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly. Aberdovey itself is beautiful, with a huge beach and sand dunes, and as you look inland...
