Careiau Esgid Lodge - Upper Corris

Careiau Esgid is a charming holiday lodge nestling in the fringes of the Snowdonia National Park.


Careiau Esgid is one of two stunning holiday properties located at Tynyberth Hall near the former slate mining village of Corris. Both properties are beautifully appointed, they each come with the luxury of a private hot tub to soak away your troubles at the end of a venturesome walk, and plenty of on-site facilities for an unforgettable holiday.


Spend an afternoon at the shared 18-hole mini golf course set amongst wild flowers for hours of fun with the kids, or dip in the heated outdoor swimming pool available from Mid-April to the end of September, when the climate is a little more forgiving. This home-built golf course is a lovely addition to the property, so you don't even have to leave the premises if you fancy a chilled day in. Alternatively, rainy 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 available in the games room for you to stream your favourite music.  There is also a handy laundry room next door, housing washing facilities as well as a chilled beer fridge and a set of golf clubs to use outside.


The nearby traditional village of Corris is ideal for mountain biking enthusiasts, surrounded by the Dyfi Forest you have miles of unspoilt tracks, steep descents and breath-taking scenery. There is an excellent village shop/café and village pub on offer as well as the narrow gauge railway, a craft centre and the King Arthur’s Labyrinth Underground Experience, while historians will enjoy a trip to the Corris slate mining Explorer’s centre. Within easy reach is Cader Idris, one of Wales' most iconic mountains, with stunning walking trails and wildlife in abundance, while Aran Fawddwy is also worth a climb for its magnificent, scenic views from the top. With plenty of attractions to suit all tastes and ages, choose to stay at Tyn y Berth Hall for a superb break in Wales.

Please note: Careiau Esgid Lodge and Pen y Cwm Cottage are located in a quiet hamlet with neighbouring properties; for this reason, they are best suited to families and couples, thank you for your understanding.

The Property

Careiau Esgid, which translates to 'boot laces' in Welsh, is the ideal getaway for a family looking to get out and about walking and cycling, with a relaxing base to return to.


Unwind on the sofa in the lounge area before the fire and spend some quality time catching up on the day's events with your loved ones, before moving across to the dining table to share a meal prepared from the modern-style kitchen.


Later, retire to the king-size double room, which has Jack-and-Jill access to the bathroom.


You also have an adult bunk room which is partitioned off from the main living area.  The bunk consists of a double bottom mattress with a single top bed perfect for those travelling with children.  You will be amazed at the on-site facilities available and you can easily access all the attractions of the area by car.

The Area - Corris

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 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.
