Daerwynno Outdoor Centre offers basic residential accommodation and is
expanding to cater for the increasing needs of able-bodied and disabled people seeking to engage in outdoor leisure activities.
Inside, the main building has a large ground-floor room suitable for cooking and dining. This room is equipped with kitchen units containing the necessary cutlery, crockery, and cooking utensils for self-catering.
There is a solid-fuel Rayburn for cooking and heating, which is being renewed at the beginning of 2015, with a wood store on the side of the
building. In addition there is a caravan-type gas cooker. Equipped with
bench seating, this ground floor room is also suitable for classroom lessons and activities, or just socialising. Cold water is fed from a nearby natural spring, and the electric lighting is currently being brought up to date and is powered by environmentally-friendly solar panels. The lighting has now been extended to incorporate the toilet block with sensor operated lighting.
Upstairs, the two bedrooms contain bunk-type sleeping platforms to cater
for up to twenty people. Foam mats are provided, but groups must bring
their own sleeping bags. Alternatively, a camping lawn, which has room
for about twelve two-person tents, is available and is used frequently in the summer months, for those providing their own tents.
The centre has constructed the first outdoor rock-climbing boulder in the
area, which, together with the house's gable-end, makes climbing a
popular activity. Within the grounds there is a small wildlife pond, particularly suitable for the younger groups. We also have a larger pond which is used for pond dipping as well as for a variety of water based activities.
