The two centres, opened by ILEA in 1970, Ty'n y Berth and Bryn Coedwig, are situated close to the village of Corris, just north of the market town of Machynlleth on the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that provides a wonderfully rich and varied learning environment.
We are surrounded by mountains carved and sculptured by glaciers, valleys with oak woodland, coniferous forests and crystal clear lakes and rivers. We are 12 miles from a coastline that offers sandy beaches, sea-cliffs, rock pools, sand dunes and two magnificent unspoilt estuaries.
The Layout - Ty'n y Berth:
A newly refurbished, converted village school, with spacious centrally heated accommodation sleeping up to 30 students in rooms of between 4 and 8, with single, double or twin rooms for staff. Ty'n y Berth has a large main room which is used as a dining room, class room and lounge. There is a small supply of leisure activities including table football and giant jenga.
This is also a converted village school, again with spacious centrally heated accommodation. Again, this building sleeps up to 30 students in bunkroom style bedrooms, with separate facilities for staff. There is a large main room that is used as a dining room and lounge, plus a smaller games room. These easily convert into classrooms.
Self Programming / Self Catering.
We can now offer either Centre as a base from which you can organise your own programme. The area offers fantastic opportunities for exploring the local environment. Mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking and hill-walking are just some of the highlights of the area, but also castles, beaches and other visitor attractions offer something for those less inclined to extreme sports. The Centres offer warm, comfortable accommodation complete with drying rooms and secure storage for bikes or boats etc.
2 converted village schools each sleeping up to 35.
