About Dry-stone walling

Learn the art of dry-stone walling with a master craftsman.

Help us to repair a stretch of stone wall in the beautiful Ogwen valley and be taught traditional stone-walling techniques by a master craftsman - stunning views as you work are guaranteed!

About the accommodation

A restored Victorian farmhouse in an outstanding location in central Snowdonia. There are stunning mountain views including the Snowdon Horseshoe and Moel Siabod. It was built in the early nineteenth century as part of the Penrhyn Estate and is located on a working upland farm. Warmth is provided by an innovative and low carbon wood-pellet heating system. There is a patio area to the front of the cottage complete with garden furniture to make the most of the location. 

Notes for guests

Steel toe-capped boots are essential.

A standard kit list can be found on our Essential Information page.
