We would like to thank everyone who took the time to write us a review following their trip, it really means a lot”.

“Congratulations to all the winners of the 2021 Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “I know the past year has been extremely challenging for tourism businesses. What has impressed me is how businesses adapted to these challenges, implementing new cleanliness measures, adding social distancing guidelines, and utilizing technology to prioritize guest safety. The Travelers’ Choice Awards highlight the places that are consistently excellent – delivering quality experiences time and time again even while navigating changing customer expectations and new ways of working. Based on a full year of reviews from customers, this award speaks to the great service and experience you provided guests in the midst of a pandemic.”

Corris Mine Explorers in Mid Wales, allows visitors to explore and discover the virtually untouched and disused workings of the old Braich Goch slate mine. The slate mine was worked from 1836 to 1970 when finally the mine was abandoned, the door creaked shut and everything was left in place.
