Spent a wonderful, albeit wet, weekend in this fabulous gem. It definitely isn't for those who want life's luxuries - but if your version of luxury is Mother Nature and the chance to get off the grid entirely then this is the place to think of. Sharing space with others is a given - but its worth it. Great walking and rides on the doorstep. The volunteers & wardens are champions and generations will thank them for their efforts in maintaining this type of hostel for city livers and visitors.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 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! ... more less
