Early Summer Exploring

We’re going back to nature and celebrating the turn of Spring to Summer. The hills are alive at this lush time of year and we want to get out there and explore the wilds with you. Join us in the mountains to enjoy the abundant light, where we wander all day then return to our off grid base for a seasonal feast by night.

At a Glance

The true joy of exploration is having the confidence to take the path less travelled. We believe in getting to the top with a sense of curiosity, so trust us when we tell you you're in for an adventure.

Ideally situated to enjoy full mountain days and clear starry nights, Crashpad Lodges is as authentic as they come. Set in the heart of North Snowdonia, we've chosen this unique off-grid bunkhouse as a bolt hole and launch pad for our mountain adventures as it really is magic. Accessible only by foot or 4x4 (there's a river crossing) the adventure begins on the approach.

With simple but comfy bunk-style beds, there is ample space to cosy up or enjoy the fresh air in your down time. A communal dining area is where we join at breakfast and dinner before retiring to the comfy lounge or outside campfire to share adventure tales under starry skies.

Located in the foothills of Snowdon, our adventure bolt hole Crash Pad Lodges is fully off-grid so requires an adventurous approach! Whether you're travelling by car, train, bike (you legend) or a combination of them all we'll give you more detailed travel options on booking. The nearest train stations are Betwys-Y-Coed and Llandudno, both of which require a taxi or bus to get to the village of Llanberis which is a short journey from us.

Kit List

There's no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing (or so they say!) Yes, we prefer clear skies and a gentle breeze, but we get out there come rain or shine and believe it's part of the learning experience. That being said, ensuring you have the right kit will make everything a lot more enjoyable so we've thrown together a list for what we think you'll need on the mountain.

We'd be happy to suggest our fave brands, bits and bobs so do drop us a line if you'd like any advice. We recommend ticking off your items as you go and doing a test wander in your gear if it's brand spanking new.
