The hostel is on a hill - so no matter where you go, there will be "up" - some more than others!

Nestled above Rhiw Farm, looking out on the Conwy Valley is our venue for the weekend - a beautiful spot, easily accessed from the North Wales Expressway (the A55) but offering seclusion and privacy that rivals most hostels in the UK.  With no light  pollution around, it is great for stargazing and being on the edge of the Carneddau Mountain range, there are some wonderful walk options too.

A modern hostel, Rowen has a mix of two bed to 8 bedded rooms with a number of toilet and shower rooms plus a very good drying room - though, hopefully the rain can stay away! 

The hostel has the benefit of an open fire, so as this is winter, we should likely be able to retire with the fire on in one or both of the reception rooms across the hostel.  

Alternatively, we have the benefit of an external fire pit so bring your wood and lets make a fire and sit out under the stars! 

This weekend offers so much - seclusion and access to wonderful walks either mountain or local countryside but be mindful, the hostel is on a hill so no matter where we go, there will be hills! 

We have lots of OutdoorLads members who have applied to become hostel leaders, so we will be using this event as an opportunity to assess one of them: John will be taking on most of the leadership tasks during the event, under Danny's watchful eye ;)

See you there :-)
