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. All bookings for Courses and Hostel Accommodation up to the end 2020 will not be taken. When current restrictions have been removed you will be able to book again. You can continue to browse the website as normal but no bookings will be taken. Click on videos or buy a Buff in the menu to prepare yourself for when we are allowed out again. The Yr Hafod team wish that you keep well and hope to see you soon.
