A good array of craft shops. Particularly the wood craft shop. The café was of a good standard. The children's play area looked exciting. A good day out

Lovely little shops with unusual gifts. Our favourite shops were the jewellery shop where my daughter bought some stones to add to her collection and the chocolate shop. The fudge is delicious.

Having driven past the centre on many occasions during our week in Wales we popped in to take a look around, but I had a hidden agenda, the Dyfi distillery. The joint owner, serving behind the counter, was such font of knowledge and his passion for the subject was enthralling. You're able to taste whats on offer. Cant answer for the rest of the centre, this did it for me.

Love this place. Great for buying things actually made in Wales. I have been there on numerous occasions and taken family members when they are visiting. Still need to to do King Arthur experience. Love the wood turner and that he uses reclaimed or salvaged word from the beach and from farms. The magical 'sayings' on the wood are great. Also highly recommend the Gin makers, you can see the distillery behind. We were there at harvest time ( botanicals, juniper) Great to have some added to my bag on purchasing!! Great Gin, world class and has won awards. Many other crafts there too. Have a 'google.'

Visited today with my husband and granddaughter, spent around three hours here, plenty to see and do, all the staff in the shops were very attentive and it was lovely to see the passion in their various crafts. Corris has something for all ages and a place I’ll certainly recommend to family and friends. Thank you.

We have been here many times now and make a point of adding it to our holiday whenever we're in Wales. It has something for everyone and you can give some of the crafts a go yourself from candles to wood craft, we love it!
