The Old Stable apartments are situated in a peaceful hillside location in Aberdyfi, at the southern tip of the Snowdonia National Park. The apartment has a south-facing terrace from which you can enjoy the fantastic views of Dyfi Estuary, an RSPB and Unesco Biosphere site and Plynlimon Hills beyond. Remember to bring your binoculars with you as Ospreys are known to nest on the estuary in the summer months.

Originally a stable block to the former Bishop of Bangor's Palace which was destroyed by fire in the 1950s, the Old Stables were converted into luxurious apartments. The apartment sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms offering either a twin or king size bed. Both bedrooms offer fabulous views over the estuary and each room have their own doors opening out onto the terrace. The apartment is fitted with underfloor heating throughout so it is nice cosy at any time of year and at the end of a busy day you can soak your tired feet in the bath.

With so much to see and do locally The Old Stables provides the perfect base for those who enjoy the great outdoors and also for those who wish to sit back and relax. You can simply take in the picturesque scenery from the comfort of your furnished private terrace overlooking the estuary. The seaside town of Aberdovey is 3 miles away. With its colourful Victorian houses it is a nice place to take a stroll along the seafront, have picnics on the beach or try out some beach kite surfing. For the sailors amongst you then you may wish to take to the water out on the Estuary. On returning to your accommodation after your busy day, relax on your terrace with a cuppa or glass of bubbly whilst you watch the sun go down in this tranquil setting.

Short Breaks
Tenancies are usually for a minimum of one week but, where agreed with Steeplehouse, short breaks can be offered. These will be charged at of 65% of the advertised weekly rental for 3 consecutive nights, 4 nights = 75%, 5 nights = 85%, and 6 nights will be charged at the full weekly rental.

In the event that the property is not re-let, then any booking fee already paid will not be refunded and you will remain liable for the full balance payment on the due date.
If any payment due in relation to your booking is not paid by the appropriate date, Steeplehouse will treat your booking as cancelled by you.
