Interaction with guests
Please ring the number given an hour before arrival so you can be met and taken to the lodges by the owner or an employee of the Lodges. This will also be the case when you depart as the lodges is in a remote location, only 4x4s can access to the front door. Your vehicles will be parked roughly half a mile away (none 4x4) 4x4 vehicles are more than welcome to drive right up to the front door. Finally due to the property being completely off grid, the owner or an employee will be on call constantly if you need assistance with any of the upkeep of the equipment.

This was the perfect location to bring a group of students to Snowdon. Not only does the house have everything you would need, but is really well done. The fire pit and BBQ outside makes it perfect for enjoying a few beers after climbing Snowdon....More
