Why we recommend Little Kestrel...

Nestled on the slopes of the gorgeous Dyfi Valley, with panoramic views across flourishing woodland and the river estuary, sits the stylish and elegant wood-cabin; Little Kestrel. This tranquil hideaway is superbly positioned to visit a spectacular stretch of Welsh coastline, including Aberdovey's glorious sandy beaches, plus the world renowned Snowdonia National Park.

About Little Kestrel
Tucked away on the quarry track of an old Welsh Lime Kiln, the luxurious accommodation has been thoughtfully adorned throughout from the Douglas Fir-clad walls to the eclectic mix of leather, linen, and velvet. The Welsh slate topped sink, wood burning stove, hand painted units, comfy sofas and large farmhouse table all combine to create a fabulous homely atmosphere.

  • The jewel in the crown of this lovely abode is undoubtedly the magnificent patio garden. With private views across stunning countryside surrounds, it perfectly soaks up the sun as it arches through the valley; a magical place to sit amongst the skipping spring lambs and abundant native wildlife.
  • At night, stargaze through the pristine country air in Snowdonia's famous 'Dark Sky', while by day there's plenty to do from mountain walks and adrenaline-filled adventures to lazy afternoons by the seaside. Whatever holiday type you choose this blissful countryside retreat will not disappoint.
  • The cosy cabin is accessed through the French doors on the raised deck, leading to the well-appointed kitchen, complete with washer-dryer, dishwasher, induction hob, oven, fridge freezer, microwave and Nespresso coffee machine. 
  • The cabin is fully heated throughout with programmable electric radiators, a wood burning stove and 24-hour hot water on demand, while all beds have sleep safe electric blankets.
  • Inside you will find a 'Smart' flat screen TV with Netflix, DVD player, Wi-Fi and superfast broadband, plus USB points in every room. Bluetooth sound system, radio, games, cards, jigsaws, tabletop ping-pong, and rounders are also available to guests.

Please note the Lime Kiln walls are very low with a 15ft drop over the edge, so Little Kestrel is not suitable for children from walking age up to 10 years. Guests must take responsibility for their own safety, so please be careful.

Dog Owners must also be aware that the grounds are not fully enclosed and are surrounded by fields of livestock, so please look after your pet.
