Sarah & Darren


We, Darren & Sarah purchased the Old Weather Station in July 2017.  Since then we have been refurbishing the building and bringing it back to life. 

We love the great outdoors and have fallen in love with Mid Wales and what it has to offer. 

We want your stay to be an enjoyable one, we love to chat to our guests before they arrive to make sure they have the best experience when visiting Mid Wales.

If your a group booking, or an individual booking ask if we can help with organizing your stay. 


Darren is an experienced walker, and holds the Mountain Leader award, he is happy to discuss the area with you and help you with your route planning or if you wish he can lead your group. 

We have immersed ourselves within the community to ensure we have local knowledge of whats available to our guests when they stay.  

We can arrange activities for you, and speak to the providers to make sure you have the best experience you can. 

We have arranged group weekends and family weekends providing activities to meet their needs, you just have to ask and if we can, we will arrange it. 

A Warm Welcome Awaits You


We have worked hard making sure our accommodation is homely but practical.  Hot showers, comfy beds and a cosy lounge.  

Our kitchen is fully equipped and our dining table has the best view in the bunkhouse.  

We know how important it is to eat well after a long day out in the great outdoors so we offer to cater for you, but for those who prefer you can also self cater or mix and match.   

We make up the beds for your arrival, and make sure your room is ready for you.  We pride ourselves on making sure our bunkhouse is clean and tidy and we welcome you on your arrival to show you around and make sure everything you need is available to you.  

Please visit our Facebook page to see our most up to date reviews about our affordable accommodation, that offers a warm welcome in a beautiful part of the countryside.
