Pen Ceunant Uchaf (PCU)

Our base in Snowdonia


We have our own hut in North Wales for members to stay overnight for a modest fee. The hut was purchased by members over forty years ago so that the club could have a base in Snowdonia. Over the years we have modernised and improved the facility which compares favourably to most in the area. The Hut can be found off the access road above Llanberis towards Snowdon . There is a good car park at the hut with a locked gate.
From the hut there are wonderful views across the valley to Moel Eileo and also across Llanberis pass to Elidir Fawr.


A split dormitory upstairs can accommodate up to 18 guests on a combination of individual beds and alpine style communal mattresses. We also have a smaller member's dormitory that sleeps up to 4 people.
Sleeping bags and pillows are required.


The accommodation consists of a common room, dining room, kitchen, Male and Female toilets and washing facilities, a shower and a drying room.

The common room is heated by a wood burner, while the rest of the main areas downstairs have electric heaters.

The Kitchen is equipped with a gas cooker, cooking hobs, microwave ovens and sinks. There are also fridges, kettles and toasters. There are plenty of crockery, pans, utensils, cutlery, tea pots, caffetieres etc in the kitchen. All sinks are served with hot water heaters.
