Erw Gwenllian is a converted farmstead nestled above Aberdovey with a fabulous outlook over the village, Dyfi Estuary and the Cambrian coastline extending to St David’s Head.
Over the centuries its view will have witnessed significant development including the localized copper mining activity immediately below the cottage, to the busy port activity – including ship-building at Penhelig, and the prominent straightening of the Afon Leri outfall to the estuary.
Nowadays you will witness the busy beaches, the coming and going of fishing and sailing boats and the occasional wild kite surfer.
With a significant tidal range the ebb and flow of the tide to the estuary makes for compelling, albeit, time consuming viewing.
The physical landscape remains unchanged for centuries and is accentuated by the dynamics of the approaching weather systems.
All rather spectacular.
