Dolgoch Hostel in Cwm Tywi, Ceredigion
Having been dumped by the YHA together with many other small remote hostels which did not fit the required glossy image, this hostel has been bought by and is operated by the Elenydd Wilderness Hostels Trust. In the last two years the building has had a new roof, and new toilets and showers, together with solar water heating for kitchen, showers and dormitory wash basins. A wood burning stove keeps the inside a lot warmer than the former inefficient open fire. The warden's annexe seen here on the end of the stone building has been fitted out with accommodation and toilet/shower facilities for a group of disabled visitors. The solar panels, including one below the chimney which provides lighting for the disabled visitors'/warden's room, and lighting for the main hostel showers, can be seen on this south-western end of the hostel. Visitor numbers are far higher than in YHA's day. Now why couldn't they do that? They had the volunteer base to do so. LinkExternal link

Note: for those in the know, George passed away peacefully in his sleep in his "mushroom shed/shepherd's bothy" (his words!) on 21 April 2011 aged 93.
