The property

A well-appointed and cosy apartment, set over the ground floor of a substantial, south-facing Victorian semi-detached house, peacefully located overlooking the pretty village of Corris.

This apartment enjoys fantastic views over forestry, mountainous scenery and the wooded hills of the Dovey Valley.

These views are well worth the climb, as the property enjoys an elevated position, with 44 steps from the lane below to the front door!

Set on the very edge of the Snowdonia National Park, and with walks in abundance, this cosy property is perfect for a couple who are active and enjoy the outdoors.

This delightful apartment has all the appeal of a cottage and provides cosy, well-equipped accommodation, including a good-sized sitting room with bay window from which to enjoy those wonderful views or relax and unwind in front of the warming electric log-effect fire after a day on the mountains.

The spacious bedroom boasts a comfy king-size bed so you’re sure of a good night’s sleep, and a compact modern kitchen area caters for all your needs.

The property has gas central heating, making it suitable as an all-year-round destination and it is also fortunate enough to have a strong mobile phone signal.

There is also a lovely courtyard area at the rear of the property with furniture and a pleasant front seating area for watching the sun going down over the hills.

Situated in the centre of Corris village with the local village pub a few minutes' walk away, this is a wonderful location for mountain bike enthusiasts with the well-known ClimachX run nearby.

Alternatively, the Corris narrow gauge railway, craft centre, underground mines and the famous King Arthur's Labyrinth are all on the doorstep.

The market town of Machynlleth is only six miles away where you’ll find an array of shops, cafes and tea rooms as well as some lovely eating houses.

The popular village of Aberdovey, with its pretty harbour and beach, is just a short drive away.

This is the perfect location for walkers and climbers with Cader Idris, whose craggy summit ridge reaches nearly 1000 metres, only a few miles away.

This area will also please those who wish to explore this beautiful region of Wales with its stunning mountains and wonderful coastline.

An ideal base any time of the year.

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 boasts a village 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.
