Welcome to Aberdovey

Aberdovey  (in Welsh ‘Aberdyfi’ – pronounced same as English spelling)  literally means The mouth of the river Dyfi’. The village is located in the stunning Snowdonia National Park, and has been a tourist attraction since Victorian times.

Aberdovey was originally founded around its natural harbour from which emerged a thriving shipbuilding community, which in the 18th and 19th centuries saw over 200 wooden trading boats launched, eventually to be seen plying their trade around the world.

The village is now a renowned tourist resort, but still recognised as a working port, with its own fleet of fishing boats. The Irish sea provides rich pickings of mackerel, sea bass and much sought after shellfish, lobster, brown crab and spider crab to name a few, which are exported all over the world.

quaint streets give rise to spectacular views

Aberdovey’s quaint streets give rise to spectacular views and the village, nestling by the sparkling water, home to independent art galleries, boutiques and excellent inns and restaurants.

The golden sandy beach and undulating dunes offer plenty of possibilities: bracing coastal walks, playing with the family, or just finding your very own spot for a bit of RnR!

Aberdovey is perfect for a host of activities from fishing charters and exhilarating watersports to perfecting your swing at Aberdovey’s award winning 18-hole links course, winner of ‘Best Golf Club’ at the Welsh Hospitality Awards 2019.
