Gwern Gôf Isaf is beautifully situated on a traditional hill-farm between Capel Curig and Llyn Ogwen, close to the base of the well-known peak of Tryfan. Set in the heart of the mountains it is ideally situated for walking or climbing the surrounding peaks of the Glyders, and the Carneddau. This site is popular with families, groups, and individuals, and provides:
Washbasins with hot & cold water.
Chemical toilet facilities.
Tents, dormobiles & touring caravans taken.
There are also 2 bunk houses (see left). One sleeps 16, and the other 6 people. There is disabled access into one of the bunkhouses.
The bunk houses are in converted traditional farm buildings. Mattresses and pillows are provided, but please bring your own sleeping bag. There is a kitchen and dining area with cooker, microwave, fridge and kettle. Please bring your own pots, pans, crockery and cutlery.
Secure storage is available for mountain bikes and canoes.
The campsite is perfect for outdoor activities, with climbing & abseiling available on site. Sir John Hunt stayed here while climbing on Tryfan in training for the ascent of Everest! The National Mountaineering Centre at Plas-y-Brenin is only 3 miles away, and mountain bike hire and pony trekking are available within 10 miles. The site is on the long distance 'Sustrans' cycle route, and the bunk house is perfect for the first night stop on the Cambrian Way long distance footpath.
