A little winter escape before Spring gets here

March 10th 2019

Winter is back in North Wales

We already had a little taste of what Spring is going to be like but Winter has returned to North Wales. Snowdon is white again and the temperatures have dropped to single figures again.

We weren’t quite ready for spring yet and the change is most welcome 🙂

If you want to go walking in the snow on one of many hills and mountains or you just fancy some wintery views while walking on the beach, our little Hostel is the perfect base for your last Winter adventure before Spring gets here.


The perfect base for Snowdonia

February 14th 2019

Make Lodge Dinorwig your base to start your adventure in North Wales

There are not many places in North Wales with views like ours over Snowdon, Llanberis and Anglesey. The perfect spot to plan your route up Snowdon, psych yourself up before heading off to Zip World or just deciding which beach to explore today.

The bunkroom is very cosy, with capacity for 14 people in handmade bunk beds; bedding is provided and the beds have curtains for extra privacy. We have plenty of space for you to lounge about and enjoy our on-site Cafe. 

Our cooked breakfast (included in our rates), is perfect before setting off to hike up Snowdon and nearby peaks. The café serves great lunches and we can provide you with a packed lunch to take with you.

We don’t have any self-catering facilities at the Hostel but dinner can be booked with us as well. Why worry about cooking and washing up when we can do it for you for just £12.50 for two courses. 



Have you planned your Winter Adventure

February 1st 2019

Winter has arrived! Time to play 🙂

The mountains are a truly magnificent place all year around. But once a dusting of snow has arrived, everything becomes even more beautiful.

Come to Snowdonia and explore the Winter Wonderland around Snowdon! Make the most of the cold temperatures and head out there to see the snow-capped mountains of North Wales.

Our hostel is located in the rural village of Dinorwig with fantastic views of Snowdon and Llanberis. Want to know what it looks like? We have a webcam pointing at Snowdon, to see it, click here

Explore the mountains and come back to a cozy and warm Hostel to relax for the night. Book directly with us for the best price.
