South Wales I
We’ll stay at Godre Pentre (Welsh for
end-of-the-village) in the village of Ystradfellte between Abadare and
Brecon. The hut is bunk-style accommodation. A great picturesque
village, a short drive to OFD area, also local caves – Porth yr Ogof,
LNRC, etc. Additionally, the cottage is extremely well placed for the
Waterfalls Walk and for climbing at Dina’s Rocks.

South Wales II
We have confirmed space for 10 people at the SWCC hut,
which is at a stone’s distance from all the OFD cave complex and is a
fantastic venue for newer and older cavers alike.
The hut is in a great location for caving and walking. There’s also some
climbing (Dinas Rock is not far away and has 272 routes) and the
Penderyn distillery. Most of the caving here does not require any
specialist gear, and there are loads of beginner friendly options.
