This is Snowdonia’s Original Bunkhouse, that I started in 1966, and now celebrating its 50th year. It's gone from a Camping Barn to an Outdoor Pursuits Centre and now an Independent Hostel, a base for your own activities. There are various grades of accommodation with helpful flexibility, and all you need is your own sleeping bag – and food, since it’s totally self-catering. Each section is equipped for cooking and eating. Our water comes from the Carneddau mountains -take some home in your poly bottle.
It's on the A4244, but it still feels like Sleepy Hollow. I keep it that way as “ A Centre of Lo-Tech Pragmatism” . It reflects my attitude to life – keep it simple, so long as it works. Here it really does – come and see!
As a retired instructor and mountain rescue leader I’m usually around for a chat and advice. There are good pubs and eating places nearby. Llanberis about 3 miles away, by road, cycle track, or lovely cross country paths. Your own drink brought in is fine, if it goes with responsible behaviour. (I take a drop, too.)
