      • Ogof Ffynnon Ddu
        • top entrance is great for novices and children
        • through trip is a classic for intermediate and experienced cavers
      • Dan yr Ogof
        • tourist cave has extra stuff for the children (like dinosaurs!)
        • various fantastic routes for intermediate and experienced cavers
        • we have got a leader booked for Sunday
    • Also Pant Mawr, Pwll Dwfn and many other smaller caves nearby
    • Excellent walking, bouldering, climbing, kayaking nearby
    • The Ancient Briton always has a nice menu and great range of guest beers…

Children and dogs are welcome, but they might find it a bit cold, depending on exactly what you do.

Book early if you want to guarantee a bed space in the cottage, or a place on the Dan yr Ogof trip. Please note that it might be too wet for Dan yr Ogof, but there are plenty of alternatives…
