Plas Caerdeon is owned and operated by Liverpool Hope University. We deliver outdoor education and personal/team development courses for university students, schools, colleges and youth organisations throughout the year.

Our facilities are also available to all types of community and family groups, youth and sports clubs. We custom build course programmes to meet the needs of each group, and can cater for a wide range of ages and abilities. The facilities are also available for self led courses.

The magnificent Victorian mansion, set in 18 acres of oak woodland and historic terraced gardens, sleeps 65 across 15 rooms. The fully equipped catering kitchen has a grade 5 food safety standard, and serves a diverse menu to suit all tastes.

In addition, the Cottages/Stables annex sleeps a further 19 across 8 rooms, including fully accessible facilities for disabled visitors.

Our grounds provide an excellent resource for a range of activities - archery, orienteering, low ropes, zip wire, bush craft and team challenges are all delivered on site.

We are perfectly located between the mountains and the water. Activities including rock climbing and abseiling, canoeing and kayaking, off road cycling and mountain walking are all within easy reach. In addition, the local area provides a broad range of high quality environmental study sites: sand dunes and beaches; species rich marshes and woodlands; rivers and estuary; raised bogs and salt marshes; classic glacial and peri-glacial landscapes; quarries and mines. Our professional tutors allow you to access challenging environments and study their diverse environments.

The centre and grounds, and all activities are fully risk assessed.

The views from the front of the house across the Mawddach Estuary to the imposing north side of Cadair Idris are stunning. In summer the evenings bath the mountains in an orange glow, whilst in the winter the peaks are often capped with snow, and the sun sets over Barmouth Bridge.
