There are walks from the chalet door with footpaths leading into the hills behind the chalet, ideal for dog walkers and ramblers or if you prefer easier walking on the flat,there's miles of sandy beach between Aberdovey and Towyn. For bird watchers and wildlife lovers the chalet has many different birds living in the surrounding woodland who will come and feed close by if you put out bird food to attract them and there are rabbits,badgers, squirrels owls woodpeckers and other wildlife around and the Dyfi osprey project where ospreys are breeding on the Cors Dyfi Nature Reserve on the estuary where there is a new award winning viewing observatory. Aberdovey itself has plenty of unspoilt interest to families (a small dog free area of beach), donkey rides in the sand dunes, a seafront playground with it's 'lighthouse slide', crabbing on the jetty, a lifeboat station, icecream shop, information center, various good eating out places (some of which are dog friendly) and other village shops- and then there are the many water sports it has to offer. Please note: The access road to the chalet is steep and uneven so please take care when driving. Plas Panteidal is not particularly suitable for infirm or disabled persons due to its hillside location however access to most bungalows is one the flat and easy accessible, please check when enquiring about suitability. Please be careful driving on the access road.Please note that the bungalows are situated in the former grounds of the old Bishop of Bangor's Palace, the water supply is a private supply and because the grounds are peat based the water maybe discoloured at times.

Interaction with guests
Caban Dyfi is located on the old woodland hillside estate of Plas Panteidal with a number of other dwellings all hidden away amongst the trees such that you only see the four similar chalets down the same quiet cul-de-sac lane. 2 miles from Aberdovey, it is accessed from the A493 via a winding private road which climbs steeply up the hillside from which there are some lovely views. The road is a little bumpy in places but fine if you drive slowly and it is with room to pass. Although a car is best for use at the chalet it can be accessed by public transport also. There are train stations at both Machynlleth and Aberdyfi and a 2 hourly bus service runs both ways along the estuary road

About the neighbourhood
Small garden area with table and chairs, bench, level lawn and BBQ. The front of the property is fenced and gated to ensure that dogs and children don’t run straight out onto the lane but the rear has not yet been secured. Steps lead up behind the chalet to a further outdoor seating area with table and chairs for four and more elevated views. Parking is a few metres up the lane after unloading. Lockable shed and outdoor tap. KEY FACTS • Bed linen and towels provided. Please bring your own beach towels. • Cot and highchair available. Please bring your own cot bedding. • Electric wall heaters • Electricity included • 3 well behaved pets welcome at no extra cost • No smoking
How to get there
There is no street lighting here (allowing for some wonderful starscapes) but there are outside lights by the door. You can park outside on the lane for unloading and loading anytime. There is a small parking area for 3 or 4 cars several meters away back up the lane for your use during your stay. The road slopes downhill from here to the chalet but is not steep. Although hardly any cars pass here, there is a fence and gates to prevent children and dogs from running straight out into the lane. It is not yet a fully secure garden, as the back has not yet been secured, although we hope to do this as soon as possible. It is lovely and quiet here and not overlooked - a beautiful spot!
