The Old Weather Station, Cambrian Mountains, Powys, sleeps 28 in 6 bedrooms.

The Old Weather Station has recently been refurbished to a high standard. There are 6 bunk rooms sleeping between 3 and 8 in modern bunks (equipped with duvets, pillows and bedding).

The large comfortable lounge area has laminated flooring, 6 settees and satellite TV, as well as table tennis. The dining room can comfortably seat 28, and gives access to the garden through patio doors.

The adjoining full catering kitchen is served by a large gas range and is well equipped to serve large groups.

Two shower areas provide a total of 6 electric showers and toilet facilities including a disabled toilet. There is a drying room for hanging outdoor kit and storing boots, with a large washing machine and a tumble dryer.

One bunk room can double as an office with access to a fax machine and phone by arrangement.

The Station is all on one level, making it fully accessible for disabled guests. It is centrally heated with hot water on demand.

The centre provides an ideal base for walking, running, mountain biking, kayaking, wildlife watching, family groups and parties. We can offer a wide range of adventure and developmental activities, and this is a great training base for the serious walker or cyclist.

The Old Weather Station is approximately 2 hours drive from the major cities of Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Cardiff but is in fact a world away. It sits on the edge of the Hafren Forest with its recently opened footpaths and cycle paths; there are walks which will take you to the sources of both the River Severn and the Wye. The spectacular lake Llyn Clywedog with its huge dam is a few hundred yards away and provides opportunities for sailing, fishing and walking.

Many birds of prey and other bird life can be spotted close to the centre, and The Hafren Forest and surrounding hills are home to owls. Osprey are spring and autumn visitors to Clywedog and have nested at one site in Mid Wales. The rivers support otters and other wildlife abounds.
