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.


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.
