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. In view of recent events with corona virus,  there will be extra measures to prevent the spread of the virus. We would try to adhere to the special cleaning and sanitising protocol (recommended by scientists) as much as possible. In addition to the cleaning, we are also spacing out our guests, there would be a 72 hour gap between one set of guests and the next.

We would love to welcome you to a 'home from home' holiday cottage in the quaint friendly village of Corris in mid Wales, UK. In view of recent events with corona virus,  there will be extra measures to prevent the spread of the virus. We would try to adhere to the special cleaning and sanitising protocol (recommended by scientists) as much as possible. In addition to the cleaning, we are also spacing out our guests, there would be a 72 hour gap between one set of guests and the next. Furthermore our changeover is done by people with a UK Health & Safety 'Prevent COVID-19' certificate. There will be disposable paper towels and gloves, multi-surface cleaner, disinfectant sprays, and liquid hand soaps available.  There is a keysafe box for self-check-in to minimise physical contacts. Due to all of the above, we'd have to add a cleaning fee to cover the additional cost, and have to switch off the 'Instant Booking' option (so that we could add 72 hour gaps in between guests). Please send us requests and we will answer promptly. We have also changed the cancellation policy to 'Relaxed', the least strict one on this website. Even though our cancellation policy is ‘Relaxed’, rest assured that if there is a Covid lockdown, we will offer to change dates (additional charges might incur if there is a price difference and it depends on availability) or refund all the rental money payable to us (Please check with the website regarding their service/ administrative charge refund). 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. 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. 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 (we would suggest donating something into the honesty box for both laundry and bicycle storage) or in the front terrace of the cottage. 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). 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. Full accessibility statement is available on request. Maximum Occupancy 4 persons (Adults or children). The Guests have access to the whole living area - 2 bedroomed house with a terrace but the cellar and the attic are Private (we use them for storage). 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.More

About the neighbourhood
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 l...
