Our review of Aberdovey Hillside Village

aberdovey hillside village


Hillside Village is home to a variety of holiday accommodation options to suit all budgets and requirements – cottages, apartments and houses sleeping between three and eight people. All the properties have panoramic sea and estuary views and are less than 100m from the water’s edge. The layout and character of the twelve properties differ, including some accessible properties ideal for grandparents coming along to an extended family gathering. 


All the cottages are comfortably furnished, child friendly and benefit from the site’s breathtaking sea views. 


For an idea of prices, a seven night stay for a family of four during the summer holiday peak costs from £800 in Seal, one of Hillside Village’s smaller properties perfect for those with younger children.  A larger property sleeping 8 such as impressive Eastward, with its split level cathedral ceiling lounge/diner and full length balcony, costs around £1700 at the same time of year. For all holiday houses, there are significant discounts during off peak periods, and short breaks are possible too. 


Hillside Village is superbly equipped to occupy children young and old. Indoor facilities (perfect for the inevitable occasional rainy day) include a games room with table football and air hockey; a soft play area with ball pit and slide, ideal for safe play for toddlers; an interactive games room area with Xbox; and a full sized table tennis table. There’s also a separate pool table room, a library of books and DVDs to borrow, and a games cupboard with puzzles and so on for all ages. 


For sunny days you’ll also enjoy outdoor facilities including a play area with swings, slide and climbing frame – handily accompanied by picnic tables for the parents with superb sea views.

The overwhelming parent friendly feature of Hillside Village is the location: located at the heart of popular Aberdovey with all its facilities and miles of sandy beaches only a short walk away, and with its incredible views: where else can you sit back, enjoy an incredible vista and relax with a hot drink (or glass of wine!) while the kids occupy themselves with the range of activities available? 


Of course, with the shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs of Aberdovey on your doorstep, dinner times at Hillside are a breeze if you don’t fancy cooking – just a short stroll down the hill. Or you can easily enjoy a lunchtime picnic on the beach before returning home for an afternoon nap.  


For those travelling with younger children you’ll find all the necessary baby and toddler equipment available to borrow like cots, high chairs and stair gates, saving you valuable space in the car.  There’s free Wi-Fi provided throughout, and a useful guest laundrette is a great way for parents to keep on top of the washing pile while you’re away. Dogs are welcome in all of Hillside Village’s properties with the exception of Dolphin, and each has its own private outside space, with some properties having enclosed gardens or terraces perfect for your four-legged friends. One of the big plus points too is parking: dedicated parking spaces are provided on-site, which is yours for the duration of your holiday. So, you can confidently explore Snowdonia while relaxed in the knowledge you’ll have your parking space on return.


We don’t come across sea views as impressive as those at Aberdovey Hillside Village very often! And even less frequently with so many great facilities for keeping youngsters occupied on-site, accompanied by all the local activities, shops and beaches; not to mention the ability to accommodate large family or friendship groups. What a superb place – we can’t wait to visit.
