The bay window patio doors from the sitting room open onto an inviting slate tiled patio garden on top of the sea wall, protected from the sea winds by glass balustrading. This gives uninterrupted views of the Dyfi estuary, looking out to sea, across to Ynyslas (Blue Island) and inland to the mountains.
The estuary and sea view is ever-changing with the tides, the wildlife, sometimes Otters, Seals and Dolphins.
The Old Lifeboat House is all on one floor level and sleeps up to four people in one bedroom with a king size bed and a double sofabed in the sitting room for additional guests. The cottage is comfortable, light with original pitch pine flooring.
Windows along the sea-side wall give near 180 degree, mesmerising views of everything from the never-ending tidal changes, the antics of the Outward Bound students, to the vast variety of coastal wildlife going about their daily business.
The sitting room has high ceilings dating back the when Aberdovey's first lifeboat sat within it's walls and now offers a comfortable area to relax and enjoy the spectacular views from the expansive bay window with doors to the patio.
