Holiday Rental House
Estuary View is on a site of about 80 chalets and bungalows set in 40 acres of sloping woodland within the SNOWDONIA NATIONAL PARK.. It has one of the best positions, facing south and looking out over the lovely Dovey Estuary towards the mountains beyond. The track up is steep, winding and very rough in places so it is necessary to drive with care to avoid damage to your car, but when you get up to the chalet you are rewarded with wonderful views. The past 12 months or so of very variable freezing/wet/hot dry weather has left the track in poor condition and if you have a low-slung or very old car you might like to send me a booking enquiry before booking to stay. This is a precautionary warning: lots of people use the track every day without a problem and I am not aware of any guest having...Estuary View is on a site of about 80 chalets and bungalows set in 40 acres of sloping woodland within the SNOWDONIA NATIONAL PARK..

The past 12 months or so of very variable freezing/wet/hot dry weather has left the track in poor condition and if you have a low-slung or very old car you might like to send me a booking enquiry before booking to stay. This is a precautionary warning: lots of people use the track every day without a problem and I am not aware of any guest having damaged their car, you just have to be careful. If you put out birdfood a wonderful variety of birds will visit the terrace, and badgers often come at dusk if you encourage them with peanuts. It is quiet. Few cars pass, and road calming measures ensure that they drive slowly. This small but charming cedar chalet sleeps four people in basic comfort. The accommodation is on one floor and consists of a double bedroom and a twin room (3ft beds). There is a family shower room with wash basin and loo and off the twin room is a small ensuite comprising a WC, wash basin and small bath. There are extractor fans and wall heaters in both wash rooms. The living area is open plan. There is a sofa and chair, colour TV, DVD/CD player, radio. At the dining end there is a folding table with four chairs; patio doors open onto a small terrace with a picnic table. The views from the dining and picnic tables are stunning, and it is very peaceful. There is a 3ft drop onto grass from the terrace, so little ones need to be watched. The open plan kitchen looks onto woodland at the back. it is fitted with full-sized electric cooker, fridge and microwave and well supplied with crockery, cutlery, pans etc. There are plenty of electric heaters for the chilly days - electricity is from a £1 coin meter. The beds are fitted with electric blankets. Water is from the site's private mountain source and is sterilised at the chalet by a UV treatment unit and filter to ensure purity and safety. Towels and bedlinen can be supplied for an optional additional fee of £12.50 for the double bed and £6.50 each for the single beds. We welcome well-behaved pets for an additional fee of £5. The property is not specifically geared for children under five but lots of parents have found it fine. The chalet is all on one level so is suitable for most people with limited mobility. There is a shallow step on the path and a step up to to the front door. Sorry but Estuary View is for non- smokers only. There's plenty to do in the area and good co-op supermarkets within 7 miles. The delightful resort of Aberdovey is only 2.5 miles away. If you enjoy train journeys the Cambrian Line is a real treat - choose from Barmouth, Aberystwyth, Shrewsbury, Harlech ........so many wonderful destinations! At Tywyn, about seven miles away, you can pick up the Talyllyn narrow gauge steam train for a trip into the mountains, and several other steam railways are within easy reach for a day out. Although the chalet can be used at any time of year it is not insulated and in chilly weather requires heating whenever you are in it. The access road is steep and winding and the surface is poor, so we do not normally let out the chalet over winter. If you are hardy and relaxed about possibly difficult driving conditions and would like a winter let contact us. You will need a car to access Estuary View. It is about 2.5 miles to Aberdovey and 7 miles to Machynlleth and Tywyn. Parking is adjacent to the property. More

Thanks Kylie, it is lovely to hear your appreciative comments! My 15-year old Renault has never complained about the drive up, but I do take it carefully and like you, enjoy the views when I get there.
