Tranquil Coastal Haven

Ships have been moored at Aberdyfi since 1109, although the buildings didn’t follow until 1569 during the reign of Elizabeth1.

The Penhelig Arms, originally a collection of fisherman’s cottages, now a jewel of Welsh hospitality, overlooks the stunning vista which was, at one time the ship building harbour, surrounded by the Snowdonia National Park.

Whatever your reason to visit our tranquil, beautiful part of Wales, you can be assured of a warm welcome, genuine hospitality, great real ale, wines and fine food with menus inspired by coast and country.

We’ve been here since 1750…we look forward to welcoming you.

Award Winning Hotel

At the Penhelig we have built up a name for ourselves with our welcoming hospitality and excellent cuisine. But you don't just have to take our word for it! We're extremely proud to say that several professional organisations agree with us too.


Explore Aberdyfi

We're perfectly located for sand and water based adventures.

Whether you are thinking about sailing for the first time, or you are an accomplished sailor you could consider participating in one of the sailing courses at Dovey Yacht Club.
Or for the adrenaline junkies amongst you, how about kitesurfing, powerkiting or landboarding?  We can arrange for you to be taught by our partners at Coast Riders.
