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 afield to Lake Bala for white water rafting; or to The Slate Caverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog which offers a breath-taking zip wire, cavern adventures and Bounce Below, a fantastic underground playground.


Fantastic place to stay. Perfect location for family with kids- facilities great- especially mini golf and pool.

It was a really wonderful place. We had a great time. The location was stunning and cottage so comfortable; we didnt want to leave. We hope to return one day. The grounds and garden was lovely, great for kids and so much to do. Even in a week i felt we didnt have enough time. The jacuzzi is really well maintained and everything looked after really well. The cottage had so much warmth and character. The beds were super comfortable. The hosts are kind and thoughtful doing what they can to make it an enjoyable stay. The staff we met maintaining the grounds and cottage were all lovely and friendly and helpful. Thank you for a great and memorable holiday. It was a wonderful base to explore the nearby area. And all the info you left us was really helpful.

Highly recommended.

Really lovely cottage with great facilities in a lovely location! Perfect for days out in Snowdonia! Hot tub was ideal for soothing our achy legs after long days of walking. Would certainly recommend.

We have just returned from a week here and it was such a fantastic holiday! The cottage is beautiful and extremely comfortable, with everything you could need (whether kitchen accessories, mod cons, games or toiletries - everything was there.) We were blessed with the weather so the pool was fantastic, it was spotlessly clean, the perfect temperature and had such beautiful views. We loved sitting out at night with a fire pit watching the birds and soaking up the views (kindling and logs provided). The hot tub was also a big hit, as were the games room, crazy golf and the rope swing. We don't have a single complaint between the 5 of us, it was perfect! We met the hosts briefly and they were very friendly and welcoming. Thanks for a brilliant week - and for the welcome treats, which went down very well!

Erg genoten van ons verblijf in Pen y Cwm cottage. Prachtige omgeving, met een mooi en rustig wandelpad direct achter de tuin naar het nabijgelegen dorpje (heerlijke koffie, gebak en pasties bij Idris Stores). Zelf inchecken, maar erg leuk contact met degene die het onderhoud deed aan het zwembad en de jacuzzi's. Zeer behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Huisje was van alle gemakken voorzien en de faciliteiten op het terrein zijn te gek. Voor ieder wat wils met o.a. privé jacuzzi, verwarmd zwembad, mooie midgetgolfbaan en games room. Ook voor onze baby was het goed geregeld met traphekjes, ledikantje en kinderstoel. Heel erg bedankt voor het fijne verblijf, wij komen graag nog eens terug.

This is an awesome place - I’ve stayed in a lot of holiday rentals and I think this is my favourite. Gorgeous views of the hillsides and so many lovely walks within a few minutes walk. We stayed with our two small kids and they loved roaming the grounds. Cute Wendy house, great pool and the hot tub is lovely. Beds comfy, fire is cute and cosy. So much to enjoy!

Really is a charming cottage. Lots of space inside and out The swimming pool was lovely, swimming with such beautiful views was a joy, even though we only got 2 days use due to the weather it was a real highlight. Clear instructions on how to open and close the cover. And a lovely 37°. Games room was a great perk and handy for when the weather turned. But log fires and a playstation for the kids kept everyone happy. My 4 year old twins loved the mini golf and haven't stopped talking about it. Instructions and communication was very clear. The staff we met were very welcoming. Highly recommend!!!

What can I say other than simply perfect. Perfect location, perfect cottage, perfect pool, everything was truly amazing and everything you need is on hand.. We explored a few beaches and went to corris craft centre for a mining tour which I would reccommend but if you don't want to leave, that's the joy of this place you don't have to. There is more than enough to keep you entertained throughout your stay! Great hosts. Thankyou

A perfect week. The cottage was beautiful in both its setting, and presentation inside and out. Cosy and warm for those chillier nights, but with a delightful terrace garden and hot tub for those warmer days and evenings.
The wider grounds have many activities on offer including a large heated pool offering a swim with a vista, which was a personal highlight.

The cottage location was great for the many local walks around Cader Idris, a short drive, which offered some of the most stunning views in our opinion in Snowdonia.
There is also access from the rear of the garden, taking you on a safe (low traffic) walk into Corris, with a little local pub at the end for those so inclined. If you take the high path through the wood, it leads past a curious little model Italy village.
The wonderful location enhanced by A* accommodation. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a getaway in the Welsh countryside.

An amazing cottage in a perfect location. It has everything you need and more. The hot tub was a lovely way to relax in the evenings. By far the best AirBnB we have stayed in.

A cozy, open and heart warming home surrounded by breathtaking scenery amongst a beautiful slate mining village, with mountains, rivers and waterfalls. A magical little land. Lots of things to do nearby such as serene walks, many lovely restaurants in the heart of Machynlleth and a lovely cafe/shop filled with beautiful gifts and food called Idris stores about a 10 minute walk from the cottage into Corris Uchaf. The cottage itself is cozy and the perfect place to have a warm & relaxing time. The games room is plenty of fun not to mention the hot tub being 5 steps from the door and the bedroom bathtub is to die for. There is plenty of space for a family or a couple and the property has been well maintained and easy to live in. If we are ever in the area again we will be sure to stay.

A beautifully presented cottage, very cosy we didn’t need for anything. Very convenient for Cadir Idris and many other walks. The crazy golf is very good, and the games room is very handy if the weather is bad. Lovely place to stay and unwind.

The cottage was absolutely perfect! In a very scenic location with lots of nice local walks - if you ever want to leave the comfort of the cottage that is. Lovely private hot tub perfect on a cold evening! Loads to do in the games room and the crazy golf of course. The week flew by, we'd love to stay again!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in November and had the best time! Perfect place for a getaway, great mountain hike (Cadair Idris) is a 5 minute drive away & there is a lovely walk to some waterfalls within 20 minutes. Even if you just want to stay within the cottage/grounds it’s very cosy with the fire on or there is lots to do (pool, ping pong, mini golf & of course the hot tub). 10/10 would recommend.
