Morlan Lodge

Region: Snowdonia Mountains and Coast

Sleeps: 2 + child


Morlan Lodge is a seaside cottage for 2 and a child, ideal for a holiday by a sandy beach, swimming, kayaking, playing golf or sailing. It’s also a good retreat for painting, writing, and birdwatching.

The Lodge was recently renovated by the owner and architect son to high standards of energy conservation and comfort. It is set in a peaceful garden with magnificent views across Cardigan Bay. Morlan Lodge is 1 mile from the beautiful and lively village of Aberdyfi, in the southern part of the Snowdonia National Park and in the UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere.

The Lodge is five minutes from the Wales Coast Path which runs for 870 Miles around the dramatic and diverse Welsh coastline. We overlook our stretch of the Path - a glorious sandy beach running beside sand dunes and Aberdyfi's picturesque golf course. We are also one mile from a new cycle path to Tywyn which we hope will soon be extended to Aberdyfi.


The Lodge is fully insulated and has good water conservation with rainwater collected and dual toilet flush.  There is an energy efficient fridge, double glazing, insulated hot water pipes, organic & fairtrade foods.   All possible waste is recycled and all garden waste is composted.

 Information is provided to visitors on public transport, cycling and walking routes, and the local countryside.

2020 is Wales' Year of Outdoors.  Wales is a place of natural drama and things to do, from the country’s beaches to walking its mountain ranges. The nation’s history is told through its ancient monuments and museums. The bold 21st century Wales is here for everyone to discover. From exploring on a short break in one of Wales’ cities or getting active in one of our epic national parks, there's plenty on offer here. 

There’s still gold in those Welsh hills, along with silver, copper, zinc and lead. Many of the old metal mines are full-blown attractions, while other are curious ruins in remote, beautiful places. There are many precious metal mines in Wales you can visit.

And imagine 216 Wildlife Trust nature reserves, 11 RSPB sanctuaries, more than 4000 sq km of national parks, an 870-mile Wales Coast Path (passing next to the Lodge), ancient woodland, lakes and river, and wide open spaces... just some of the best of Wales's natural landscapes.
