The Emily Kelly Hut is in Nant Gwynant below Snowdon (GR SH 653541). When the club acquired it in 1932 it was just a shell. We are proud of how the club has transformed the hut over the years into a comfortable little cottage with electricity for cooking and lighting, a well equipped kitchen, a hot shower, drying room and comfortable alpine bunks for 22 people. A barbecue is available for outdoor cooking and a wood/coal stove plus storage heaters for winter warmth. You could bring your own carbon free alternative to coal; you must bring kindling. There is parking for about 10 cars a 150 metre walk from the hut.
Clubs and organisations are welcome to make group bookings at our discretion. We are keen to encourage groups fostering women’s discovery and enjoyment of hills, mountains and the outdoors. Please note that the Pinnacle club reserves 2 bed spaces in case needed by members so the maximum group size is 20 people.
Unfortunately we are not able to take bookings for school parties and similar youth groups due to child protection legislation. With reference to BMC guidelines, our hut isn’t suitable to comply with child safeguarding requirements and the liability risks.
Only full Pinnacle Club members and Kindred club members can book the hut as individuals.
There is a £50 non-refundable deposit for group bookings to secure a booking once accepted. If a group wishes to book for fewer than 15 people then the hut will usually remain available for a shared booking by others.
