Where are we going?

We'll be staying in a bunkhouse in the Brecon Beacons, situated in the heart of waterfall country, and very near to the famous caves & waterfalls of Ystradfellte. The waterfalls of Clyngwyn are literally on our doorstep. Sgwd Clun Gwyn waterfall, the first of the falls on the Afon Mellte is only 500m from the farm so a short 5 minute walk away. We are close to the famous Sgwd Yr Eira waterfalls which are the ones renowned for being able to walk behind them.

Outside the bunkhouse there is a circular area with large fire pit and eating area (weather permitting) from where there are beautiful views of the Brecon Beacons. There's also a small stone built roofed building seating 6 people with a log burner. So we will have plenty of space both inside and out.

On Sunday we need to check out of the bunkhouse by 11am, but there will be the option to then head out for a Sunday walk, including a pub lunch, for anyone who is interested 

Bedding

Whilst quilts and pillows are provided, you'll need to bring linen (or a sleeping bag and sheet) and towels.

Or you can hire linen at £2.50 per set from the owner of the bunkhouse.

All guest must use linen and/or sleeping bag.

Itinerary 

Friday Evening: Arrive anytime after 4pm, meet the rest of the group and socialise. Welcome 'meeting' and we'll have the usual Outdoor lads buffet so please bring something that can be shared between two or three people (try to avoid too much quiche!)

Saturday Day: After breakfast (which is included in the event cost), we’ll head into the surrounding countryside for a good walk. Depending on the walk route we should be able to stop off at one (or both) of the two nearby pubs (The White Horse in Pontneddfechan and the New Inn in Ystradfellte). Depending on demand and weather conditions, there may be an option for a longer walk up into the higher Brecon Beacons.  If you prefer this, then please bring a packed lunch with you and maybe pack a flask for a hot drink if it’s cold.  

We'll confirm walking options in the lead up to the event.

Saturday Evening: Relax, socialise, and chillout. Dinner is included in the event cost, and if the weather is suitable we'll get the fire pit going outside. 

Sunday: After breakfast (included in the event cost) we need to check out by 11am. There will be a walk after this, incorporating a local pub where we can go for lunch, for anyone who is interested. 

Tea & Coffee: Will be provided throughout the weekend.

Other Drinks: Please bring your own.

Dogs

Well behaved dogs are welcome on this event although there is an additional charge of £5 payable direct to the owner on arrival.  Please let me know in advance.
