Ty'n Cornel Youth Hostel, ESE of Llanddewi Brefi
This former farm stone built cottage which had been YHA accommodation since 1968, is now in the care of Elenydd Wilderness Hostels ( LinkExternal link ). All lighting and cooking used to be powered with bottled gas. Electricity, with EEC grant was installed in 2004. SN6854 : Electricity at Last!! Cwm Brefi, Ceredigion The next habitation eastwards, is Soar y Mynydd, 4km. STOP PRESS.....The new edition (2007) of the OS 1:25000 Explorer Map has deleted the red triangle which indicated the position of this ex YHA hostel. Rest assured, the hostel is still there and open from February to early November.
Ty'n Cornel Youth Hostel
It will soon be noticed that reference to Ty'n Cornel and its companion hostel at Dolgoch will disappear completely from all YHA publicity during May 2017. These, and some other basic traditional hostels no longer fit the YHA's money spinning glossy "holidays for kids" image. Young TRAVELLERS of limited means are no longer what the YHA wishes to encourage. Ty'n Cornel and Dolgoch are thriving and comfortable upland bunkhouse style hostels, open for most of the year and full booking information can be found on the Elenydd Wilderness Hostels website.

In the meantime, please do not be off by anything the YHA says if you have problems booking through 2017 and beyond. The Elenydd is a wonderful remote area for walking away from "the crowds".
