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.

In view of recent events with COVID,  there will be extra measures to prevent the spread of the virus; cleaning protocol and 72 hour gap (Please see below regarding cancellation). We have to switch off' Instant Booking' to implement the changes, please send us a request or enquiry, and we will answer promptly.

The space
It is a 2 bedroomed end of terrace slate built miner’s cottage in a central location, with 1 double bed and 2 single beds. It has all the home comfort with central heating, a very well equipped kitchen including dishwasher, a bathroom with bath and shower, and internet Wifi access. 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.

The village is a very friendly quaint neighbourhood, full of peace and tranquillity. It is truly away from it all. 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 essentials and local produce. Many guests have already enjoyed having their breakfast and afternoon teas there. The institute nearby also serves tea and cakes. There are two pubs 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. Nearby are local attractions for children and the whole family.

The host provides laundry service (additional fee), or you can use the washing machine 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 or in the front terrace of the cottage (we would suggest donating something into the honesty box for both laundry and bicycle storage if you use the Youth Hostel).

Where you’ll be

Gwynedd, United Kingdom

Nearby is Machynlleth, the nearest market town which is 10 minutes by car. The market day is Wednesday, with an emphasis on locally grown produce. There is a theatre, the Museum of Modern Art, many galleries and a number of book shops, including antiquarian. The Centre for Alternative Technology is even closer, and is a good place for children, as are both Kings Arthur's Labyrinth and Corris Craft Centre.

There is so much to do in the neighbourhood to suit everyone. The famous walk up the 'Giant Seat' Cadair Idris is about 15 minutes away. Aberdyfi (Aberdovey), the quiet seaside resort is only 15 miles away. The RSPB Ynys Hir nature reserve is 20 minutes by car. There are various golf courses in the area. The Unesco world Heritage Caernarfon Castle (where Prince Charles's investitute took place in 1969) is just over an hour away, and the highest mountain in Wales Snowdon is just under an hour away.

Recommendations:
If you like walking: Corris is situated only 2 miles south of the Snowdonia National Park, Cadair Idris is about 15 minutes away, Snowdon itself just under an hour away, and a plethora of superb walks start on your doorstep. There are also the two coastal paths, see “if you like the sea” below.

If you like food: the market in Machynlleth is Wednesday, with an emphasis on locally grown produce. Fresh fish is available from the market on Wednesday, or from Aberdovey. It is lovely to meander the promenade in Aberystwyth and there are lots of restaurants. Our favourites are Ultracomida, Little Italy and Fish & Chips takeaway by the promenade.

If you like the sea: Aberdovey (Abertyfi in Welsh) is a delightful quiet seaside resort, and is only 15 miles away. Ynys Las nature reserve has mile long beaches. Bala is a well known family watersports lake resort. The Welsh Coastal path runs through Machylleth, only 10 minutes away and the Ceredigion coastal path begins 22 miles away.

If you like trains: Corris steam railway is literally minutes away. There is also the Narrow Guage Railway museum in Tywin

If you like wildlife: the RSPB reserve of Ynys –Hir is only 12 miles away

If you like mountain biking: nearby trails include Mach 1,2,3, Climach-X and the Holey Trail

If you like photography: not only do you have the Snowdonia National Park, but also the Mach Loop if you are interested in low flying fighting planes.
