Accommodation at the venue

Sadly the accommodation at the Neuadd Henllan is now fully booked (as at 18th April 2019).  There may be some rooms released about two weeks before the event, so keep an eye open for a "newsflash" on the home page nearer the time.  Beverages and evening meals are still available (see below).


All camping at the venue is available free of charge for the rider and crew provided that stabling has been booked for your horse, but only for the same number of nights.  Please see the Entry, Stabling, Corralling and Camping Fees under the "Ride Info" menu item for the stabling charges.


Toilet and shower blocks are available free of charge for all riders and crews for the duration of event.
