Pen y Cwm is a delightful Welsh cottage nestling in the fringes of the Snowdonia National Park. It was formerly the doctor’s surgery for the small village of Corris, near Machynlleth in Mid Wales.


The cottage is one of two well-equipped holiday homes at Tynyberth Hall, near the former slate mining village of Corris. Both cottages come with the luxury of a private hot tub to soak away your troubles at the end of a venturesome walk, and plenty of fun shared facilities for an unforgettable holiday.


Spend an afternoon at the 18-hole mini golf course set amongst wild flowers for hours of fun with the kids. Take a dip in the heated, outdoor, swimming pool available from Mid-April to the end of September.


Cooler days can be spent in the communal games room, where you can enjoy a round of table tennis; darts; table football or pool.  There is a blue tooth speaker in the games room to allow you to stream your favourite music.


With original slate flooring (underfloor heated), exposed beams and cosy woodburning stoves to add warmth to a chilly winter’s evening, this cottage offers bundles of character.  A set of a dozen slate steps lead you up to the property, where you come to a boot room for storing your muddy shoes from a walk on the hills.


Inside you can fully relax in the cosy living room, with the fire ablaze as you catch up on the adventures you’ve had so far. The dining room plays host to more formal evenings with a delicious feast cooked up from the beautifully appointed kitchen containing another wood burner.


Upstairs, there is a double bedroom (king size bed) with it’s own claw foot bathtub, a bedroom with 3 single beds which ideal for children and a family bathroom.  Outside, you have a beautiful garden for soaking up the summer sunshine with private hot tub.


With plenty of attractions to suit all tastes and ages, choose to stay at Pen y Cwm for a superb break in Wales.

Pen y Cwm Cottage and Careiau Esgid Lodge are located in a quiet hamlet near the village of Corris. It is 6 miles from Machynlleth and 15 miles from Aberdovey.


Within easy reach is Cader Idris, one of the most southerly high mountains in the UK with stunning walking trails and wildlife in abundance, while Aran Fawddwy is also worth a climb for its magnificent, scenic views from the top.


This traditional Welsh village stands directly on the edge of the southern part of the Snowdonia National Park. Situated on the banks of the River Dulas and overlooking the wooded slopes of the Dovey Forest, this old slate quarrying village is perfect for mountain biking enthusiasts.


The village has a pub and is directly opposite the well-known mountain biking Cli-machX run, as well as the famous Coed-y-Brenin Mountain Bike Centre being nearby. The village also offers the historic Corris narrow gauge railway, an excellent craft centre, the Corris slate mining Explorer’s centre and the exciting King Arthur’s Labyrinth Underground Experience, along with interesting local walks that abound.


Discover The Tarrens, probably the best ridge walk in Wales as well as the wonderful mountains of Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy which are both close by.


Enjoy a good day out on the Tal-y-Llyn Railway and at the delightful harbour village of Aberdovey with its variety of pubs and restaurants, lovely sandy beach and golf course.


The bustling town of Barmouth is about a half hour drive away which has a sandy beach, a good range of shops, pubs and amusement arcades.  Fairbourne, a quaint seaside village, is just across the estuary where you can wander along the 2 mile sandy beach or enjoy pony trekking in beautiful surroundings.


For more adventure and adrenaline, head slightly further a field to Lake Bala for white water rafting; or to The Slate Carverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog which offers a breath-taking zip wire, cavern adventures and Bounce Below, a fantastic underground playground.
