About Claire Hales

A family of four, enjoys travelling, walking, sightseeing and eating fine food.

Claire Hales purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Claire Hales chose Aberdovey

We purchased this cottage in 2016 having spent the last 40 years travelling to Aberdovey for family breaks, firstly as children, then lately as parents of two boys ourselves. The cottage is cosy, in a great location and offers a home away from home feel for short breaks or longer stays.

What makes this cottage unique

Only minutes away from Aberdovey's beautiful beaches, great pubs and restaurants. A great location for walking, water activities, golf or cycling

Wanted for nothing like home from home. Clean, all mod cons but still cottage quaint

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped cottage and felt like a home from home.

Great location and everything sorted for you for a very detailed tourist / information folder, through to car parking and even a place identified to take the dogs first thing in the morning!

Fantastically catered for dogs including spare bowls, balls and throws (we brought our own, but you don't need to) with treats for them as a welcome gift. It was all very thoughtful and like going to stay at a friends place.

Cottage was very clean and has been refurb'd to a high standard. Lovely property to relax. We will definitely go back again. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
