The local area


There are walking books and an OS map for you to use.

You can walk straight from the hut up to the top of Bryn Arw or at the end of our road is the car park for the Sugar Loaf. It takes two to three hours to climb and return and is worth the effort.


There are so many good places to go here, you are spoilt for choice.

If you like visiting churches please do go to Partrishow or in Welsh, Patricio which is about two miles over the valley. So remote and lovely views.
