Trigfan means 'Home' in Welsh . We would love to welcome you to a 'home from home' holiday cottage in the quaint friendly village of Corris in mid Wales, UK.
It is fantastic for walking all year round; beautiful wild flowers in spring, perfect walking climate in summer, amazing autumnal colours and snow capped mountains in the winter. There is a wide range of walks, from local walks at your doorstep, to short walks like Dolgoch Falls and mountain walks like Cadair Idris nearby. The popular Ynys-hir RSPB nature reserve is only just over 20 minutes away. There are miles long beaches and water sports opportunities in Aberdovey and Bala.
It is a 2 bedroomed end of terrace slate built miner’s cottage with 1 double bed and 2 single beds. We have made it as comfortable as your own home with central heating, a well equipped kitchen including dishwasher, a comfortable bathroom with bath and shower, internet Wifi access and a central location in a quiet village. It has also got character features like a multi fuelled stove and original fire place. Stair gates, travelling cot and high chair are available on request.
There is no washing machine available on the property, but the host provides laundry service (additional fee). Or you can use the one in the Youth Hostel, which is in The Old School round the corner. Regarding bicycle storage, there is a covered area behind the Youth Hostel which you can use (we would suggest donating something into the honesty box for both laundry and bicycle storage).
The village is a very friendly quaint neighbourhood, full of peace and tranquillity. It is truly away from it all. The institute nearby serves tea and cakes. There is a pub serving food within very easy walking distance. Corris steam railway is only a few minutes walk away, as are the beginning points for very many excellent walks. There are art and pottery lessons available. Nearby are local attractions for children and the whole family. An award winning corner shop and cafe has opened round the corner from our cottage since 2015 and it is run by our friends in the village. It sells the daily essentials and local produce. This would make it very convenient for your short break grocery shopping and many guests have already enjoyed having their breakfast and afternoon teas there.
It is easier to have your own car but there is a bus from Machynlleth to Corris, stopping very near to Trigfan. There is free street parking or in the village public car park which is less than 2 minutes walk away (free of charge).
This is our home and we let it out when we go travelling (which is as often as possible). Your host lives in the village, she is happy to provide any assistance and answer any queries. Otherwise your privacy would be respected.
If you are interested to rent the cottage, please drop us a line. Thanks.
