The Berwyns, Wales

Date / Time
Date(s) - 12 Oct 2018 until 14 Oct 2018 6:00 pm

I am planning to run a trip to an area little frequented by NMC, namely the Berwyns. 

Date is the weekend of October 12th  – 14th. 

We’ll be staying at Spring Hill Farm - there is a rumour we have stayed here in the dim, distant past.  

The accommodation is a well equipped bunkhouse, which sleeps 25 in 6 rooms. 22 in bedrooms & 3 ( I’m guessing ) on sofa beds.  As there is a family room  this will be a child friendly trip.  

To book the bunkhouse there is a minimum charge of £640 ( ie 16 people at £20ppn ) so we’ll need a minimum of 16 for the trip to go ahead.  The farm also has 2 cottages which sleep 6 in each, so if numbers are low, there is a chance we could book these instead.  Should we get more than 16 the owner, Sue, has said she’ll ‘do a deal’ thus making the actual cost per person less than £20. 

The plan for Saturday is to do a circular walk over the main summits of the Berwyn Range.  I have planned a 14 mile loop which takes in 16 summits, including the Denbighshire / Montgomeryshire County top.  The countryside is open rolling moor.  There are plenty of other walk options including one of the ‘Seven Wonders of Wales’ – Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall. 

The farm is also an equestrian centre for those who like that kind of thing with both trekking , and,  for the more experienced, hacking.
