Situated just under 35minutes from Hafan y Mor are the magical tunnels and chambers of the Sygun Copper Mine. Not only can you journey into the heart of Welsh history but above ground you can pan for gold, go metal detecting for coins, try your hand at pottery painting, let the kids loose in the adventure playground and meander along the beautiful lakeside walks. I fully recommend a visit; it is definitely on my list for when I’m next in Wales!
