A typical shared dorm room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest.

Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.

Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room. None of our dorm rooms have en-suite facilities.

Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus a wash hand basin.

Camping is sold per person and not per pitch. During the booking process, you will need to select the number of people who you wish to camp.

Meet the team

Manager recommends: A morning walk captures the scenery at its best. Take a stroll to the legendary Llyn-y-Fan glacial lake, followed by a welcoming lunch at the Red Kite café. Enjoy the spectacular display of Red Kites feeding in the delightful surroundings of Llanddeusant, whilst sheltering in a purpose built hide.
