Traeth Dyfi was built in 1837 as the first Lifeboat House in Aberdyfi. A total of three lifeboats were kept here until, in 1886, it was converted into a bakery and tearooms and remained this way for many years until it's conversion into a dwelling house. It now offers a totally unique spot to spend your holiday practically living on the sea.

The cottage sleeps up to four people and is very comfortable and light with gorgeous, original pitch-pine flooring. The accommodation has one double bedroom with a king-size bed. This bedroom has patio style double doors overlooking the sea, giving a fascinating way to wake up in the morning with waves lapping by your bed-side. Off this bedroom is a lovely, fully tiled, wetroom with toilet and washbasin.

The kitchen area is hand-crafted with solid wood worktops and a dining table. Windows along the sea-side wall give mesmerising views of everything from the never-ending tidal changes, to the antics of the Outward Bound students. The living area is comfortably furnished with a leather double sofa-bed for additional guests. The stunning feature of this room is the expansive bay window with french doors, giving an amazing view across the estuary and out to sea.

These doors open onto an inviting patio garden, protected from the sea winds by glass balustrading....... All-in-all, an extraordinary location to spend your holiday.
