There is space for 19 people over 5 rooms. So if there are 19 of us then the price will be £63 each for the full weekend. So this will go up if less people. As there is a 20% deposit anyone that would like to go if you are able to pay a deposit of £25 each then this will be taken off the amount for the remaining balance. Each of the 5 rooms has single beds, some of which can be joined to make a big super-kingsize bed. There are ample separate showers throughout the building.

Description:
Saturday - The plan for Saturday is to do an 11 mile walk up Waun Oer taking in the magnificent ridge of Maesglase with its waterfall via
Craig Portas and Maen du. It is an accent of 939m (3100ft) but we do start relatively high to begin with. It is the 87th highest peak in
Wales giving views of the whole of Snowdonia (if not cloudy). The ridge that links the two peaks has great views on either side - if you do not
like heights then I would not advise it.

Sunday - On the Sunday it is either a 9.2 mile (or 7.2 mile if the weather is bad), climbing to the summit of Cadair Idris. We go via Llyn Cau which
is a beautiful glacial lake well worth a visit, then follow the ridge of Mynydd Pencoed and Tal-y-Llyn Lake (Llyn Mwyngil) full accent of
2,900ft. This one is steep in places on ascending but we dont go back the way we came up, instead the descent is much nicer on the knees.

Monday - The Monday is a more relaxing day travelling to Betwsy Coed for a toboggan woodland ride at Zipworld Www.zipworld.co.uk/adventure/fforest-coaster It costs £20 per rider and includes 3 runs of approx 6 minutes each, reaching speeds of up to 25mph. Please contact Jenny asap if you would like to do the toboggan ride so she can do a group booking, payment will be required in advance. For those that don't fancy the tobogganing, there are a variety of other activities on offer which can be booked separately.
