The Old School Lodge, originally the 19th Century Village School, was extensively refurbished prior to its opening in 2001.

Set in large wooded grounds with a gently flowing stream and a breathtaking view of the mountains beyond, the Lodge is situated four miles from Llanberris and the foot of Snowdon itself. Bangor and Anglesey are also nearby.

The Lodge does not provide or organise Leaders or Instructors. Those who conduct activities are responsible for ensuring that they have the appropriate training and qualifications to do so, relevant to their own organisation. The owners of the Lodge accept no responsibility for any such activities.

However, the friendly on-site Warden is always available to offer help and give advice on activities available in the area.
