This hostel is a favourite with OutdoorLads members, as it offers access to some of the less walked mountains in Snowdonia, whilst being within around 10 minutes of the walled town of Conwy, the National Trust's Bodnant Gardens and also near to Adventure Parc Snowdonia. 

For those of you who've been to Big Spring Camp, the hostel is a little further up the valley towards Conwy and set up in the hillside. The event has sometimes been referred to as the the "Edge of the Carneddau weekend", as the hostel is positioned adjacent to that part of the National Park.

The hostel is located 250m above the Conwy Valley with panoramic views out across the valley itself. It makes a great location for walking Tal Y Fan and the Carneddau mountains in North Snowdonia. 

On Saturday there will be at least one local walk/activity on offer, depending on the abilities and desires of the group and the availability of leaders. This could include a mountainous walk (for which we might need to catch a bus or use our cars) into the wilderness on our doorstep. Alternatively, there are gentler options such as Tal Y Fan Mountain, which is accessible to any mountain bikers who may wish to come to event. The event leader will publish more details closer to the time.

There are also choices for those members who want to do something different to hiking up mountains. The stunning National Trust Bodnant Gardens and the historic walled town of Conwy are both nearby. 

Also, Adventure Parc Snowdonia with its surfing lagoon, indoor climbing/caving/zip slides etc, outdoor climbing, zipline etc and a newly opened spa is a short drive away. Note: This is not included in the event cost; costs are dependent on the chosen activity.

Dogs: Four dogs are permitted at this venue at an additional charge. Please contact the office on or 0161 420 0001 to book and pay for a dog space.
