Self-contained accommodation in Machynlleth

March 9th 2021

Toad Hall will be operating as self contained accommodation this spring. It will open as soon as the Welsh Government allows, with restrictions on households and groups sizes as required by the rules in place.

We plans to revert to operating as hostel style accommodation available by the room, as soon as the pandemic allows. We are also looking forward to welcoming back groups of outdoor enthusiasts.
