Having stayed at Idwal Cottage yha several times over the last two years I wish to highly recommend a stay here on 3 levels. Firstly it is situated in a very beautiful part of Snowdonia tucked away in an idyllic spot with ample parking and easy access to the mountains. The Hostel is cosy and has a well stocked kitchen. I love all the old yha history to be found in the hostel. However the reason I chosen to do this review is because of the staff. As a Life member of the yha I have been staying at yha's for over 40 years beginning aged 15. Every time I have stayed I have found Saskia really helpful and prepared to help make my visit as enjoyable as possible. You feel very welcomed by her friendliness and approachability. She was also able to recommend places to visit in the area. Highly recommend a stay at this yha.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Stay below the impressive Glyder mountains with views of the Nant Ffrancon Valley at this former quarry manager’s cottage. Recently refurbished and great for families, you can be sure of a warm welcome at this environmentally-conscious hostel. All levels of walks can be found in the immediate area, and you won’t need to travel far for world-class mountain bike trails. It’s perfectly placed for strolls to see Rhaeadr Ogwen Waterfalls or Cwm Idwal nature reserve (with its dramatic lake) and Devil’s Kitchen. ... more less
