YHA Ennerdale  gives a true taste of the Lake District. Situated in a remote wooded valley and surrounded by fells, ridges and famous peaks, the converted forestry cottages make for a cosy rural retreat.

This Welsh hostel is perfectly located for anyone wanting to explore the coastal resort of Llandudno or an activity break in Snowdonia. It’s a 10-minute walk from the centre of Conwy, just outside the historic walls, and enjoys panoramic views of the medieval castle, the mountains, and the valley.
