The 9 craft studios are home to talented designer-makers and their range of handcrafted items including pottery, jewelry, natural forest furniture, candles, glassware, herbal lotions and remedies, personalised wooden toys and gifts, handmade chocolates and award winning artisan gin. You can have fun making your own crafts in many of the studios. Drop in to dip candles, paint pottery, make chocolates and to craft herbals. You can also book ahead to build a piece of furniture (minimum age 16). A collection of exciting attractions start from the Craft Centre including the King Arthur's Labyrinth underground adventure, Lost Legends of The Stone Circle and Corris Mine Explorers.

This attraction is linked to King Arthur's Labyrinth. Which is great. The craft centres are definitely worth visiting with plenty to do and buy. Would recommend all to visit.

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!

Lots of really lovely crafts and shops, filled with things for adults and kids to do and see and of course buy too :) Really friendly staff... More
