The OMC club hut, Cefn Garw, in North Wales


Our hut, Cefn Garw (known fondly as "Cefn"), is the OMC's base in Snowdonia. We call it a hut, but it is an old stonebuilt farmhouse that has been refitted as a bunkhouse. It can be found just off the A5 at Pentrefoelas.

It is available for hire by outside groups as well as OMC Members. Please contact the club if you'd like to book it. Bookings by external groups or individuals require advance payment in full at the time of booking.
