  • "Wonderful stay again at Isycraig, the views are stunning over the valley and there’s a lot to do in the area: centre for alternative technology, lots of great walks and the local railway, shop and pub are lovely too."

    We always really enjoy ourselves, it’s a tonic.

  • "The listing was accurate over the 44 steps."

    Not a problem if reasonably fit. Car parking a problem unless you own a fairly narrow vehicle. SUV's beware. Otherwise property listing was accurate and it was a very pleasant place to stay. Good countryside and plenty of good walking in near vicinity.

  • "Great holiday had by all, We went in February when there were loads of floods and the weather was really wet and windy."

    This was a super place to relax And stay warm... Also had a great little pottery studio down the road (by car) The owner was always at the end of the phone when needed. And a lovely little shop just down the road. (Pub too but we didn’t visit so can’t comment) My only slight criticism is the parking is tight for big cars but wouldn’t put us off retuning.

  • "What an absolutely superb place to stay."

    Pete(the owner) was fantastic and was always at the end of the phone if we had any questions. The local area is so picturesque and the locals are really friendly. The pub just down the road is a lovely place to go and relax with a nice drink and something to eat. The cottage is fantastic with everything you could need to make your stay enjoyable. The view from the lounge window is amazing and you could just sit there, listen to the birds and just while the hours away. Which we did a few times! It is a perfect location if you are keen on aviation, as it is a stones throw away from some great locations to capture pictures of fast jets!(They sometimes fly over the cottage!) We will definitely be returning as there is so much more we want to see and do around Corris and the surrounding areas. I would definitely recommend a stay here whether you are a keen walker, aviation fan or just fancy a chill in an amazing location. Thanks again Pete from an amazing stay.

  • "Generally the property was superb."

    The shower was adequate but not brilliant due to being fed from the hot and cold water taps in the bath. It was difficult to control the temperature of the water. The bathroom was a long way from the bedrooms with a number of flights of stairs having to be negotiated in the night. Corris was a lovely little village and people were very friendly. Craft centre, Corris railway, Slaters Arms, shop and Church well worth visiting.

  • "A manual to explain how to use various things eg boiler and recycling waste would have been helpful."

    It wasn’t clear where to dry clothes. Overall, we had a lovely stay, it was a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay with tremendous views, lovely bit outside in the garden to sit and take it all in

  • "Very comfortable and spacious."

    Bathroom, bedrooms and lounge all well furnished and had everything one would need. Kitchen spacious but could do with re-equipping in certain areas - not enough pans, some of which were burnt out and unusable. Poor knives.
