NOTE - EVERYBODY needs their own proper sleeping bag, not just a sheet inner. Pillows and slips are provided, but some bring their own. (Teddy Bears come free with their owners !)
It's all self catering, and 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. Remember - first night frozen meals need de-frosting, and large numbers of pizzas are best thawed overnight and eaten next day. Pre-cooked fresh stews/pasta sauces are first night favourites.
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. There are two spinners if you get dripping wet...but a house full 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 4, 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 the kitchen/diner 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 unless they're a Bunkhouse overflow.) 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. Tables, lighting, no neighbours - have a party!
