SN7553 : Ty'n Cornel Youth Hostel, Ceredigion

taken 11 years ago, near to Gouallt [other Features], Ceredigion, Great Britain

Ty'n Cornel Youth Hostel, Ceredigion
Ty'n Cornel Youth Hostel, Ceredigion
Now being operated as an independent hostel but still bookable through the YHA. A rusty old shed has been replaced this summer with the new green one shown. Ordnance Survey maps (2007 edition) have omitted the red triangle, but this action will be reversed for future printings.
The horse-rider friendly gate in the corner of the field shows where the (almost non-existent) bridleway enters the field en route for the river. It does not go between the sheds or through the large sheep-shed parking area as shown on the maps.

Please see LinkExternal link for the latest status regarding this hostel and Dolgoch, just five miles away.

Update 23.10.2011 Ty'n Cornel is open for most the year (February to October). Dolgoch is open throughout the year (Restricted water facilities in mid winter - contact the trust before going!).
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".
