CORONAVIRUS UPDATE AS OF 19th JULY 2021

Arthog OEC is following the Guidance from both the English and Welsh Governments, and from T&WC, as restrictions are lifted for residential visits.

Arthog OEC is expecting to be open in September 2021 for all its schools.

As part of the ongoing monitoring and management of residential and non-residential operations, Arthog will continue to regularly monitor and assess the procedures and risk assessment to manage the risk associated with COVID19 with our operations. Arthog has adopted the UK Outdoors Covid-safe Charter Residential Educational Visits COVID-safe Charter (ukoutdoors.org.uk) .

During these challenging times we would like to reassure our schools and parents that Telford & Wrekin Council continues a supportive approach to bookings. Invoices will be issued after a course has taken place and will be based on the actual numbers attending. This temporary measure will be extended to end of the Autumn Term 2021.

Please be secure in the knowledge that if operating conditions do change and a planned programme cannot go ahead, your school or college will not be left with a financial liability.

For bookings from 4th January 2022 our Booking Form Terms and Conditions will apply, including the cancellation policy

If you would like to contact us about and existing booking or to make a new booking please call 01341 250455 or email info@arthog.co.uk

In the meantime, we would like to wish you all well, and look forward to seeing you return for more happy days at Arthog.

Arthog Outdoor Education Centre is a purpose built residential centre within its own private grounds in a stunning location overlooking Barmouth Bay and the Mawddach estuary. The coastline is varied, with a mix of expansive sandy beaches, rocky shores and cliffs. The seaside village of Fairbourne is close by and the small coastal town of Barmouth sits across the estuary from us - accessible on foot via the railway viaduct.

The centre has established an excellent reputation as a leading provider of adventure activities, capitalising on the diversity and quality of activity venues in this extraordinary corner of North Wales. 

From here it is a short step to the majestic slopes of Cader Idris, the stunning coastline and Mawddach estuary, the challenging trails of Coed y Brenin forest and the historic towns of Barmouth and Dolgellau.


The area abounds with opportunities for enjoying the outdoors at many different levels, but equally offers the visitor a rare glimpse of a landscape influenced by human activity over thousands of years. Ancient burial sites, standing stones and hill forts, are intermingled with more recent castles, mines and settlements.
