Cwm Pennant Hostel is in the perfect location for a range of outdoor activities. You can walk out of the building directly onto the back of the Nantlle Ridge and Moel Hebog.  Rock climbing at Tremadog is just a couple of miles away, and the stunning beaches of the Llyn Peninsula are only a short drive.

The accommodation is converted from the old  stables of  Brynkir Hall.  The Hall is now derelict but Cwm Pennant Hostel provides comfortable accommodation with many original features.  There is a  large dining room and self-catering kitchen to prepare your own meals, a large lounge for evening relaxation and a training room for meetings. All bedding and linen is provided, so no need to bring sleeping bags.
