15 places left
Join OutdoorLads for THREE nights over the first May bank holiday on an escape to a hidden gem in the Black Mountains, a 15th centuary farmhouse perched up a track above Grwyne Fechan valley and pretty village of Llanbedr.... Perth-y-Pia. Between the fire warmed living room and comfy beds, this is a lovely little hostel.
A stroll in the Black Mountains, the smaller brother to the Brecons but no less beautiful, will include nearby Table Mountain - no not the Cape Town one - known as Crug Hywel and the site of an Iron Age hillfort. With a mix of footpaths and open moutain moors, this is a little visited but charming part of south Wales.
This cosy and small event is sure to be an enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Why not come and join us for a great walk, filling meal and time to catch up with friends new and old.
This year this occurs over the adjusted bank holiday weekend (due to VE Day) and hence we're going from Thursday evening through to Sunday - so three nights! This also co-insides with the Penpont camping weekend, so we may well join forces in organising some activities.
Dogs: This event is not suitable for dogs.

What to bring
You don't need anything special for hostels: this centre provides bedding.
You always need a towel and washkit. A couple of nice to have items are a torch (so you can get into the room when everyone has gone to sleep, without turning the light on) and ear plugs.
Bring your normal day walking kit* for the days' activities- but do bring comfy relaxed clothes for wearing around the hostel! You'll need to bring a packed lunches for during the day and of course any drink you may want of an evening.
Please note, early spring in the Black Mountains can be somewhat unpredictable - could be deep snow or sun bathing weather. Come prepared with winter kit and hope to be surprised.
Food & drink
Thursday night: Please bring one item for the group buffet, something small and tasty to feed 2-3 people (and that doesn't much require prep other than heating on arrival - as the kitchen will be full). Go easy on the onion quiche, we'll all be breathing the same air...! And remember, home-made stuff will gather you much admiration !
Friday, Saturday and Sunday breakfast: Included in the event cost.
All lunches: Please bring your own packed lunches.
Friday and Saturday dinners: Friday and Saturday evening meals are provided.
Tea & coffee: Included throughout the weekend.
Alcoholic drinks: You'll need to bring these with you, but Crickhowell is not far away where you'll find several shops.
Allergies: If you have any diet related needs not specified in your account information, please do let the leader know directly.
