Things to Do in the Local Area
The National Mountaineering Centre at Plas-y-Brenin is only 3 miles away, and mountain bike hire and pony trekking are available within 10 miles.
The nearest start point for Snowdon is Pen-Y-Pass, located about 7 miles from Gwern Gof Isaf.
The site is on the long distance ‘Sustrans’ cycle route, and the bunk house is perfect for the first night stop on the Cambrian Way long distance footpath.
