Lodge Dinorwig is right on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. Entering the building you can still find features of its previous use as a school. The 4* bunkroom sleeps up to 14 people and all beds are equipped with curtains, plug sockets and reading lights. Lodge Dinorwig will look after all your catering needs during your stay. A cooked breakfast is included and you can book dinner if you wish. Overlooking Snowdon and Llanberis, Lodge Dinorwig is the perfect base to plan your route up the highest mountain in England and Wales. With North Wales being the Adventure Capitol of Europe, Lodge Dinorwig is conveniently located for many adventures. A short drive will get you to the fastest Zip Line in Europe and many activities like mountain biking, coasteering, surfing, climbing and trampolining are just waiting right outside our front door. The on-site Cafe gives you the perfect excuse for that slice of cake after a day spent in the mountains.

October 6th 2020

Every walker’s dream is a hostel directly on their route. Lodge Dinorwig in Caernarfon has the Slate Trail passing the front door.

What could be more perfect?  No bus to catch, no taxi to order, nor the demoralising trudge off-route to your accommodation.  And joy of joys after your breakfast the next morning you are right on the route again ready for an early start.

Visit the new normal in Snowdonia with your household bubble

August 13th 2020

We are finally re-opening our bunkhouse at Lodge Dinorwig again. Things will look a little different but we can promise you, it’s still as idyllic and charming as before.

For the time being, Lodge Dinorwigs bunkroom will be available for sole use groups from one extended household (household bubbles). We have put cleaning procedures in place in line with the current Government guidelines to minimise the impact and risk of Covid-19 during your stay.
We have changed our usual pricing structure as we anticipate to have smaller groups staying and ask you to get in touch with us directly for more details.
