  • "I had not grasped the scale of the steps - uneven slate and particularly dangerous when being pulled down by a dog."

    No need for a gym. Property bijou but fine, though hall a little narrow when the dog permanently blocks it. Corris a lovely village. Pub and cafe well worth visiting. Also the steam railway and the Italian 'village'.

    Many thanks for your comments. We do try to be as transparent as possible with information about the steps, mentioning them in both the advert bullet point and showing them on the advert picture along with a picture of the hall so guests can see them before booking our property and we are sorry if the layout didn't suit you on this occasion. We're pleased you enjoyed Corris and the lovely local sightseeing. Thank you the top cleanliness and comfort scores, much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "The positives of the property are the location (close to the village and close to the National Park), space (bedroom and lounge), and the parking."

    Also the communication with Peter was good. The things that can be improved are cleanliness (there was a surplus of animal fur, and everything was very dusty) and it gets damp quickly.

  • "Great place if you like hiking and nature."

    Quiet and peaceful. Owner very helpful, friendly and prompt to respond to any quires you may have. The 40 steps to the premises from the parking place would be a challenge for people who are less physically fit.

  • "Fantastic cottage, warm, comfortable and well equipped."

    Great location and beautiful views from the front bench, perfect for enjoying a cuppa or beer after a day in the hills. Really handy selection of maps, walking routes and other info provided. Only marked down for cleanliness as it was a little dusty in places. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

  • "Fantastic Victorian apartment set on the side of a steep valley overlooking Corris with lovely views down the valley towards Machynlleth."

    Very spacious apartment with plenty of room for 2 people. Perfect base for exploring around Cadair Idris, the Tarrens and the surrounding forests and valleys. Would definitely stay again.

  • "Parking is difficult at times."

    Road is very narrow and not enough spaces. We parked at the bottom of the steep hill and walked up. The location of the holiday cottage was fantastic for walking and we found everyone very friendly.

  • "Having arrived at this property we found it to be dirty and infested with woodlice, spiders millipedes."

    There were lots of dead woodlice especially in the wine glasses, spiders in almost every corner of every room, and millipedes both in the living room and in the bedroom. We couldn't even stay a night. You would have thought that hygiene and cleanliness would have been a higher priority coming out of the Covid-19 lockdown. Since raising this with Sykes Cottages I have had to call and email numerous times and am yet to be provided with any kind of solution. I would not recommend.

    Thank you for providing feedback for 1 Isygraig. We're shocked and sorry you felt the property was not up to your standards. We understand that upon arrival you left the property after one hour without notifying Sykes Cottages or the owners, despite having contact details for both. Please understand if there are any problems you wish to be rectified we are more than happy to assist. Even though no party has been given a chance to fix any of the issues you felt need addressing, we understand compensation has been offered back to you. Property Owner

  • "We were delighted that the accommodation was so well equipped & very clean."

    The bed was comfortable (such an important factor when away from your own) and there was plenty of cupboard & drawer space. In addition, a multiplicity of sockets, a quality TV & WiFi that was efficient. The owners have excelled themselves in so many ways and we appreciated their efforts. I think that people need to be aware when booking that there is another apartment above which can mean small children running around letting off steam. We have grandchildren so it didn't bother us but others guests might not feel the same. Corris is a delightful little village set in a stunning and unspoilt part of Wales. We loved it all and will return!

    The owner was absolutely brilliant! The only catch was, we thought the property would have some enclosed outdoor space, but unfortunately it didn't. It wasn't a big problem but it did mean our dog had to stay on lead around the property.

About the location


Machynlleth 6 miles; Aberdovey 15 miles.

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 Cadair Idris, the second highest mountain in Wales, dine or swim at Tal-y-llyn lake, or explore Castell y Bere which is settled amongst picture-perfect rolling green fields. Further afield are the beautiful white sands of Aberdyfi, Barmouth and Ynyslas, along with the stunning mountain ranges of the Rhinogs. Discover The Tarrens, probably the best ridge walk in Wales, as well as the wonderful mountain of Aran Fawddwy close by.
