The perfect base for the attractions of Snowdonia- including Zip World!

September 3rd 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. 



Explore the beaches of Anglesey

July 18th 2019

Did you know that Lodge Dinorwig is just a short drive from Anglesey Island? If you are looking for some beach adventures, Anglesey has 27 sandy beaches and rocky coves.

With over 100 miles of coast line around Anglesey, you have plenty of beaches to choose from. When the sun makes an appearance and reflects on the deep blue sea you have to remind yourself that you are still in Wales as it could be anywhere in the world. We might be lacking the tropical temperatures from down south to enjoy a play in the water without a wet suit but rock pool exploring and beach strolling are very high on the list of favourite beach activities. Enjoy some long sandy stretches on one side of the island or head over to the rugged bays with many cliffs and stunning coastal walks
