Arrival and Departure times

The hostels are available for occupation from 2.00pm on the day of arrival and should be vacated by 11.00am on the day of departure, unless previously agreed.

Vehicle parking

Please park in the car park at the side of Eryri for the hostels.

Cars and Mini-buses are able to drive onto the campsite but, in the interest of safety, we would request that vehicle movement be kept to a minimum.

Canoeing & Activities

Canoeing is available on Llyn Padarn, LLanberis.

We have 8 canoes with paddles, life jackets and helmets for hire – possibly with instructor – but you must arrange your own insurance.

Contact Jill Stott – Jill.Stott21@btinternet.com for general enquiries.

Please note

Snowdonia is classed as Wild Country by the Department of Environment and not merely fell walking country. Any expedition should be registered before departure and must have leaders qualified for the type of excursion planned. All members of the party must have appropriate clothing and footwear and be properly equipped.

When planning activities please take into account that Felin Bach is within a farming community and that the country code needs to be observed at all times.

Safety, Terms and Conditions

Health and Safety

Please note

Girlguiding Caernarfonshire has a written Health and Safety Policy that is displayed in both hostels. This includes Risk Assessments for general use of the buildings and campsite and also Fire Risk Assessments. Please make yourselves familiar with these as soon as possible after arrival. The hostels have a comprehensive fire safety alarm system with emergency lighting together with fire extinguishers and fire blankets. There is lighting for the courtyard and sensor-controlled lighting around the outside of the hostels.

Wood Fires

These are permitted so long as the turf is removed and replaced afterwards. There is also a campfire circle for use.

Damage and breakages

These must be reported to the warden and be paid for.

Rubbish/Recycling

As much as possible should be burned, tins flattened and bottles washed. We now have our own general recycling facilities. Any rubbish that cannot be burned or recycled must be put into plastic sacks, the top tied, then placed in the wheelie bin provided. This is collected from the lay-by early morning of each Monday.
