Many people will write about the beautiful location however, I would like to comment on John - one of the many wardens who keep Ty Cornel and Dolgoch functioning with such love and care. We arrived at Dolgoch, late, tired and wet and were met...More

We were there for one night only during Girls Offroad Weekend in September. Lovely setting, very basic but charming. No electricity and shortage of hot water due to cloudy weather but that doesn't matter. Time has stop in that place. We truly love it.

About
Description
The Elenydd is an area in the southern Cambrian Mountains of mid-Wales, between Llanwrtyd Wells and Tregaron. It is a wild and beautiful place, with silence broken only by a gurgling stream, the bleating ...More of sheep or the call of a bird. It is a wonderful area for outdoor activities like walking and cycling, an ideal place to escape from the pressures of the modern world.Simple youth hostels have provided accommodation here for many years and have always been popular with walkers and cyclists. They are in isolated and stunning locations and have been run by volunteer wardens for many years.The Youth Hostels Association closed the last three of these hostels in 2006, but we have managed to save two of them - Ty'n Cornel and Dolgoch. They are both converted farmhouses in the hills and are full of character. And you can help to keep them open by visiting them! Less
