Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Machynlleth - Trigfan Corris

A 2 bedroomed slate cottage

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.

We started the holiday let in 2015 and we thank you all for visiting our web pages and staying here. We are pleased to continue to offer introductory prices; lower nightly & weekly rates with no additional charges for more than 2 guests or cleaning.

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 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. A new corner shop and cafe has opened round the corner from our cottage in 2015 and it is run by our friends in the village. It sells the 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 holiday home and we stay here frequently. Your host(s) live in the village and will be happy to provide any assistance and help with any queries. Otherwise your privacy would be respected.

If you are interested to rent the cottage, please drop us a line. Thanks.

Suitability: Families or couples, children welcome. Sorry no smokers or pets and it is probably not suitable for disabled travellers due to the steps to the front door. Accessibility statement available on request.

About Andrew Mok

We came on holiday for a week and ended up buying a place here! The village is so friendly and the walking is quite simply superb.

Andrew Mok purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Andrew Mok chose Wales

The place is so comfortable and there is so much to do in the local area.

What makes this cottage unique

We have set it up quite literally as a “home from home” with everything that we consider essential. We could come here to live tomorrow! Please come and enjoy the comfort of our home. We would welcome your comments.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comments from Our First Guests: Kat & Scott

We stayed at Trigfan over the Easter Weekend and could not have asked for anything more. The cottage was beautiful. Everything we could have possibly needed was provided (including enough tea, coffee, milk and welsh cakes for our arrival after our long drive).

The cottage is surrounded by stunning scenery and very close to some of the most beautiful walks I have done.

Andrew was an attentive host, quick to reply to emails, instructions were clear and easy to understand

Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Nice property in a charming village

  • 5 of 5

Nice property with a warm friendly atmosphere. Adam in the local shop came and introduced himself which was a nice touch, as were the waffles; and a very pleasant chatty neighbour next door too. Great base for walking and cycling. If you're a keen mountain biker and hiker you don't need me to tell you where to go - you'll find it. There's loads of forest trails, footpaths and quiet roads to get lost in - or cycle over route 8 to Barmouth and back along to Dolgellau via Creggenan Lakes. Same for hiking - the Cadair Idris range is fabulous but unless you're early there's usually other people about - whereas the surrounding peaks you invariably get to yourself. When my kids were kids we walked most all the walks in the 'Kittiwake' series of books that can be bought in the tourist centres which are great for introducing folk to the hundreds of public footpaths in the wider area if you're not so confident. An OS 1:25000 explorer map, compass and binoculars are advisable - binoculars to view the bird life and cast the horizon for those hidden stiles! www.mwis.org.uk for the mountain weather forecast.

Aberdovey is a lovely place but if you want to go on the beach then park around the corner and walk across the golf course to get away from the 'masses' - the sea is always warmer once you're in - and it's especially warm (relatively) on cold wet days and you can just about guarantee the beach will be deserted.

Back to the Trigfan - there is no covered storage area for bikes but there are steps down to a cellar at the front and I put our two mountain bikes (29'ers - you'll never go back to little wheels if you try one) in the space down there out of sight.

I see mention of the hard mattress in a review above - I expect there'll be future comments on it - my wife liked it but if I'm honest I wasn’t too enthused by it and prefer something a little softer after a day hiking.

I had no problems with the internet – I found I could bypass the installing ‘BT’ bit by accessing websites directly through google.

As for the telly being too small – we never turned it on!

Thanks - we had a great time in Trigfan

Owner's Response: Thank you Tim and Karen for your nice review which describes our place pretty well. Thanks for looking after our place too. We do prefer our firm (but not too firm, ha ha) orthopaedic mattress and trust us, we have both got a medical degree, it is good for your back. Thanks again and please do stay at Trigfan again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review and we are pleased that you had a good holiday (arranged on the day ;-))). We do like our firm double bed but I suppose this is our personal taste and we are not keen on camping at all. BT is the UK national telephone line/ broadband provider. The Wifi is usually OK but not superfast due to the rural location and they do try to advertise when you first log on. We have not got fibre broadband yet. Apologies. Hope to see you again in the future and we'd give you a discount for being lovely guests ;-)))

A great place to stay in Corris

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend break. The cottage was quiet, clean, very well equipped, and tastefully decorated -a very relaxing and pleasant place to stay. The owners seem to have thought of everything!

We enjoyed local walks (bird watchers look out for the little owl we saw in the woods just up the road!) and went to see the centre for alternative technology. Machynlleth is a lovely little town with lots of character -its worth having lunch there and a walk around. Another time it would be good to go to the great Cadair Idris which is only a very short drive away.

We highly recommend this place

Owner's Response: Machynlleth is a wonderful friendly market town with a proper market every Wednesday. A small theatre even Bryn Terfel had a concert there this year. If you are bird watchers, Ynys Hir RSPB nature reserve is only 20 minutes away. It is well worth having a go to Cadair Idris and there are loads of other good walks nearby including our favourite is Arran Fawddwy. Look forward to welcoming you back.

Quaint, comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for this lovely accommodation. We had a fantastic and relaxing time and the cottage was was well kitted out. The cottage is perfectly situated; near to towns and en route to Aberystwyth or Abersoch with stunning views from the cottage location. We would love to come back and would certainly recommend. Should you require communication/assistance in any way with the owner he is very prompt, hassle free and supportive which is what you want when your on a break.

Car: recommended

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. Cadair Idris is about 15 minutes away. Aberdyfi (Aberdovey), the quiet seaside resort is only 15 miles away, and Snowdon is just under an hour away

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. Your hosts Adam and Andrew grow their own local vegetables and sell free range pork and eggs. Fresh fish is available from the market on Wednesday, or from Aberdovey.

If you like the sea: Aberdovey (Abertyfi in Welsh) is a delightful quiet seaside resort, and is only 15 miles away. 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 Gauge 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.

There is a bus service but transport mainly by car
