Crieff Hydro? It's hard to find a Scottish hotel that offers you more. For short breaks, family holidays and self-catering, there's plenty to do.

YHA Idwal Cottage

A warm welcome is waiting for you at YHA’s oldest location in Wales! This eco-friendly hostel offers superb Snowdonia accommodation for activity breaks in the Ogwen Valley and is surrounded by geographical wonders. Perfectly located between the Glyder and Carneddau mountains the hostel is great for strolls to the Cwm Idwal nature reserve and Devil’s Kitchen or for walking holidays on the Cambrian Way or the Welsh 3,000ft peaks. Whether you come for a life-affirming moment atop Tryfan – the north ridge ascent begins just 1.5km east of the hostel – or prefer to stay on the Ogwen Valley floor, this place will keep you coming back for more.

You can follow in the footsteps of YHA's founders – pick up a copy of the 'Idwal log' at the hostel and relive the walks and scrambles enjoyed by the Merseyside Group in those early years. Or if you've got the tourism bug visit the sites where Dr Who, Hammer of the Gods and Dragonslayer were filmed! Just ask at reception and we'll point you in the right direction.

So if you're looking for cheap family breaks with excellent self-catering facilities and a licensed bar, try YHA Idwal. And if you're inspired to visit the oldest YHA in Wales then consider taking a real step back in time with a stay in the Anglesey Hut. The quaint wooden sleeping hut from 1931 has been restored to its original purpose.

The Hostel

YHA Idwal has 36 beds in the hostel and some of the rooms are en-suite. This green hostel is perfect for the eco-conscious traveller and offers a great base for activity breaks and mountain climbing in Wales. There are also camping facilities for those who like to sleep under the stars.

Camping

Please note that camping is sold per person and not per pitch and so, during the booking process, you will need to select the number of people that you wish to camp.

YHA Idwal's campsite is located in a beautiful pine wooded area. The campsite is ideal for people who want the comforts of 4 star hostel facilities combined with the adventure element of falling asleep under the stars with Ogwen waterfall providing the background soundtrack. An intimate setting, YHA Idwal can accommodate up to seven small tents on the campsite.

Important Information

Anglesey Hut

Feel close to nature in this traditional old-style wooden hut! With shuttered windows for privacy and plenty of bunks to sleep comfortably, this simple but functional hut will take you back to your school days. The hut features electrical sockets and lights – your essentials for a rest between adventuring and sleeps six/seven people in one double bed with a single over the top and two bunks. The hut is fully furnished with beds and bedding - perfect for family breaks. There is a separate shower and toilet across from the hut for guests to use during their stay.
