Slate tips above Corris


Slate mining village, now a centre for walking.

Corris from the west

This pretty village in the Dyfi Eco Valley was built to house workers in the local slate quarries. Now it has a railway museum, and part of the old narrow gauge railway to the slate quarries has been re-opened by volunteers (see the Corris Railway web site for details).

On the main road towards Dolgellau are the Corris Craft Centre and King Arthur’s Labyrinth, a son et lumière retelling of the Arthurian legends in the spectacular caverns of an old slate mine.

Corris is a good centre for walking, biking and riding but accommodation is still difficult to find. As a charity, we can't recommend or advertise places to eat or stay - so these are just places we have come across. The Braich-goch Hotel has a bunkhouse - -  and there is a hostel - There are also a couple of B&B establishments in Aberllefenni.
