The PdOC Hiking trip returns to Wales this August bank holiday weekend.

This time we are heading to Dan-y-Gyrn in the Tarell Valley, part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. We will be staying at one of the National Trust's beautiful bunkhouses.

Tickets are £40 per head to cover your accommodation for 3 nights. Transport and food are not included in the trip price and places are limited to 15 so sign up early to secure your place.

We will leave Cambridge in the afternoon of Friday the 25th August, so you will likely need to leave work a little early. We will return on Monday evening.

The bunkhouse has a fully equipped kitchen. As this is a small group we would like to trial group cooking! You can of course bring your own meals, but if you would like to be involved in the group meals just indicate your willingness on the sign-up form. We will try out a rota with ~3 cooks and 3 dish-washers on the Saturday and Sunday nights. Meals will be decided in advance and can be tailored to suit dietary requirements. These will probably be pasta, burritos, jelly, salad etc. but I am open to suggestions. Please share your ideas! Breakfast and lunch are up to the individual and there is ample fridge space for storage.

The bunkhouse is relatively easy to reach by public transport (by train and then a shared taxi for the final part). We expect this to cost ~£75 per head for the return journey. If you would like to go by train, just indicate that when you sign up, and you will receive all the details by e-mail. The total journey time is around 6 hours.

For anyone preferring to drive, PdOC will assist with buddying people up and providing suggested routes. However, following these is at the discretion of the individual and PdOC does not bear any responsibility for damages or other unexpected costs incurred during the trip.
