Things to do in Corris

Updated: Apr 28, 2022

The Old Vicarage is in Corris. Whilst we sit on the A487 on the approach to the village, the vicarage has been firmly part of the community for all of it's 150 years.

Slater's Arms - You can't come to Corris without staying for a pint (or a few) at the Slater's Arms. Great pub food, amazing beers, incredible cider selection, and always a local or two to ask for more recommendations of things to do

Bike Corris - Cycling tours around the Dyfi and wider. Dave is passionate about not just leading treks but improving cycle access through our local forests and running courses for youth groups. It doesnt matter if you are a novice or you're out to shred, Dave and team will tailor trips to your skill/fitness level

Corris Craft Centre - Just round the corner from The Old Vicarage, this award winning craft centre has more to offer than any craft centre you'll have visited before. An experiential high-street, all vendors have hands-on courses or demos for you to get involved. There's also a cafe that sells top notch food.

Dyfi Gin Distillery - ok so this technically IN the Corris Craft Centre but I thought it worth calling out separately. As BBC Food & Drink legend Joe Wadsack said "This is the best gin in the world". Go and chat to the family on site and discover why they win award after award after award after award after award after award... Oh and they do tasters...

Corris Mine Explorers - Corris Mine Explorers offers multi award winning underground mine exploration trips. Make sure to let Mark, the lead guide, know you've come up from The Old Vicarage.

King Arthurs Labyrinth - Great for family visits, group visits and school visits, on this day out you sail through a magical waterfall into the mountains of Southern Snowdonia and to a mysterious land of legends and storytelling. Being underground, this is a great day out on a wet day in Mid Wales and a great day out on a hot day in Mid Wales as the caverns are really cool.

The Mach Loop - What could be more famous than Corris Corner?!

The Old Vicarage B&B is situated directly under the flight path of The Mach Loop, where you can observe the passing aircraft whilst you enjoy breakfast, from your bedroom window or out on our terrace.

The Mach Loop is named after the town of Machynlleth and is a low level flight training path through a series of valleys in mid Wales. East of the loop is Dinas Mawddwy, West is Dolgellau, South is Machynlleth.

Idris Stores - Great spot to grab lunch and some local food supplies, art and cool merch.

The Shack - Based in the layby opposite the craft centre this is a treat to go to and grab some lunch. Hearty jacket potatoes, chilli and more, plenty of vegan/veg options. Sit in or take out

Holy Trinity Church - A bit of local history, go and have a wander around the grounds of this little gem

Corris Railway - The Corris Railway is a narrow gauge (2' 3") railway whose origins date back to the 1850's. The line was initially built as a horse-and-gravity-worked tramroad to carry slate from the quarries of Corris Uchaf and Aberllefenni. View the timetable online

Corris Walks - The 3 Corris Walks. Although there are perhaps hundreds of walks to do due to the sheer scale of forestry to ramble through, here are a few to get you started
