How to Hire Yr Hafod & Check Availability

Our Hostel booking process and hostel availability is outlined here: Hostel Booking

Instructor Hire

All of the staff and instructors at Yr Hafod are volunteer Scout Leaders and therefore we can’t hire them out for Scout or external groups booked into our hostel.

We recommend you check your local area for permit holders using the permit search feature of Compass or search for a local instructor to hire through the Mountain Training Association, alternatively why not book on one of our Explorer Scout Adventure Weekends?

Covid 19

Yr Hafod is now closed until the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis is over. As the Covid 19 restrictions are lifted we are hopeful that we can return to business in 2021. To help you with your planning for 2021 we are taking provisional bookings for the hostel and our activity courses and there’s even better news, we won’t be asking for any deposit or payment until the Government and the Scout Association have lifted the restrictions on residential activities taking place. Please phone for your first and second provisional dates. You can continue to browse the website as normal. Click on videos or buy a Buff in the menu to prepare yourself for when we are allowed out again. Stay safe everyone and we look forward to seeing you at Hafod in 2021.
