Crashpad Lodge is a unique off-grid mountain lodge situated in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park making it a perfect base for your getaway in North Wales. Located on the wild slopes of Snowdon you are close to the amenities of Llanberis yet still very much in a mountain environment.

The traditional farmhouse is called Yr Helfa meaning “The Gathering” in Welsh and has been carefully restored to its former state, sleeping up to 18 guests in three bedrooms comfortably. Most of the interior items such as the soft and hard furnishings have been hand made from recycled local materials by the owner and friends.

The mountainous location of the lodge means that it is completely off grid and self-sustained meaning that there will be a little bit of maintenance and up-keep on your stay but nothing that we feel would be too inconvenient
