NOTE - EVERYBODY needs their own proper sleeping bag, not just a sheet inner. Pillows and slips are provided, but some bring their own.
It's all self catering, buit large groups bringing uncooked pizzas as a "quick" meal on first night arrival could wait a long time - ovens have a limited capacity. Pre-cooked stews and/or unfrozen microwave meals might suit you better. Our wide range of pans copes with most things. Cereal/fruit/wholemeal toast breakfasts are recommended for large groups - or anybody else wanting a quick morning getaway.(It suits me - at 86, and very active on hill, rock or bike)
There’s a gas ”log” fire in the bunkhouse living room, making it very warm and cosy. All other heating is gas or electric. Bring warm clothes...and a spare polybag...a houseful of wet people could overload the drying room. All sitting rooms have TV, and WIFI where the thick stone walls allow.
There's ample off-road parking. CLICK on each heading for photos
Sleeps 21 in dorms of 9,8 & 4. Student groups sometimes use the settees in the living room to sleep an extra 5, making 25. The entrance hall leads into the common room, dining room, kitchen, drying room, 2 washrooms with showers, 3 toilets.
The Chalet and The Flat - Le Flachalet
The Chalet sleeps 8 in 2 rooms, 6 & 2, with shower and toilet. It shares cooking with The Flat, or, if used as a bunkhouse overflow , chalet occupants join their group there.
The Flat sleeps up to 5 in a double, a single, and two pads in the alcove. It has a shower and toilet, ensuite. There’s TV, and a storage heater. Cooking is downstairs in the kitchen/diner shared with whoever might be in the Chalet. Together these can make a smaller Bunkhouse for up to 13, or each can be hired separately.
Castell y Gwynt
"Castle of the Winds" - sleeps 7. A double bed in the kitchen/diner, 4 single bunks in a room with the instant shower, separate from the washroom and loo. There’s a single room, too. The kitchen has 2-burner gas cooking, electric kettle and toaster, and a microwave – so don’t bring a Sunday roast! It's suitable for simple meals, and a healthy cereal-and-fruit breakfast - or for those who eat out. The entrance hall also makes a drying room.
The BBQ area is ideal for outdoor meeting/assembly, protected by trees and hedges, with a shelter.
No pets are allowed and smoking is not permitted indoors (nor in the doorways - where the smell might blow in!)
