Pet-friendly cottages & accommodation in Aberdovey, Wales
Aberdovey, or Aberdyfi as it is known in Wales, is an enchanting little harbour town on the coastal edge of Snowdonia National Park. The River Dyfi flows into Cardigan Bay here, and the waters provide a playground for water sports enthusiasts, with sailing, rowing, kayaking and fishing just some of the activities on offer here.
When it comes to adventures with your pooch, there’s plenty on offer too. The beach at Aberdovey is dog-friendly all-year-round, with the only restriction being in front of the car park between 1st April and 30th September. The backdrop of the Snowdonia National Park makes the coastline here a spectacular place for a dog walk, and venturing into the surrounding mountains offers yet more awe-inspiring scenery.
Aberdovey’s train station links the town with other destinations along the coast, as well as inland and to England. A jaunt along the North Wales coast could be just the ticket for a dog-friendly day out with a pooch who enjoys exploring as much as you do. The nearby seaside town of Barmouth is worth a visit, and has a section of beach that is dog-friendly year round.
There are numerous dog-friendly attractions in the area, including Talyllyn Railway (4.1 miles), Bird Rock (9.5 miles – home to an astonishing number of breeding cormorants and the increasingly elusive chough) and Tal-y-Llyn Lake (13.5 miles).
For adventurous pooches and active owners, a climb up Cader Idris (16 miles) will reward your efforts with breathtaking views.
With so much to see out and about, a comfortable base is a must, and Aberdovey holiday cottages that are pet friendly provide just that. Some dog-friendly cottages welcome more than one dog, so nobody in the family needs to be left behind. Features such as enclosed gardens make holidaying with your pet stress free, and with so many dog-friendly things to do on the doorstep, you’re sure to have a memorable time - see our dog-friendly guide to North Wales for some doggy-approved advice.
