Who can book the hut?

Bookings may only be made by:

  • members of the University of London Mountaineering Club (ULMC)
  • members of another University-affiliated mountaineering, climbing or walking club
  • members of the University of London Graduate Mountaineering Club (ULGMC)
  • members of another BMC (or equivalent national body) affiliated club
  • individual members of the BMC (or equivalent national body)

Anyone entitled to book places can book for guests who do not need any of the above affiliations.

Equivalent national bodies to the BMC (British Mountaineering Council) include Mountaineering Scotland, Mountaineering Ireland and other international mountaineering bodies (including the national Alpine Clubs).


Hut fees


individual and small group bookings

Hut fees from 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2023 have now been agreed and are set out below.  We will review and may have to increase the fees later in the year, depending on how badly inflation and particularly electricity prices affect us.  But we will honour the fees set out below for anyone who books places in 2023 before we review our fees.

1-17 sleeping spaces can be booked on the understanding that it may be necessary to share a mixed dormitory with other individuals and/or groups. Fees are normally charged per person per night for up to 17 places as follows:

  • £7 for ULMC/ULGMC members
  • £9 for full-time university students who are not members of ULMC/ULGMC
  • £12 for all other guests who are not ULMC/ULGMC members or full-time university students
  • Children are charged at the rate of the accompanying adult who takes responsibility for them

If privacy is important or essential (as is likely to be the case with children), this can only be guaranteed by booking the exclusive use of a dormitory or sole use of the hut.

6 places are usually reserved for members of ULMC/ULGMC other than when sole use is granted (by booking all 3 dormitories).


Booking whole dormitories (and sole use of hut)

If 18 or more sleeping spaces are required, whole dormitories must be booked. There are three dormitories which can be booked individually or in combination to accommodate a maximum of 6, 20, 26, 40 or 46 people (subject to availability). Charges per night for booking dormitories are as follows:



Maximum capacity (sleeping spaces)

ULMC / ULGMC groups

Other student clubs/groups (including school, college and youth groups)

 Other clubs/groups

Dorm 1 (downstairs)





Dorm 2 (upstairs)





Dorm 3 (upstairs)





All three dorms (sole use)






Car park charges and midweek discounts

A fee of £3.00 per vehicle per night for up to 8 parking permits will be charged and a midweek discount of 20% will be applied for dormitory (other than bookings for just the small 6-bed dorm) or whole hut bookings that do not include a Friday or Saturday night or a night immediately preceding a Bank Holiday.

Current bookings are shown in the embedded Google Calendar below. The booking dates shown on the calendar are for the nights that have been booked and therefore include the date of arrival but not the date of departure.

Hut rules

To confirm a booking, a deposit of 50% of the total fee is payable within 7 days of a provisional booking being accepted, otherwise the provisional booking will be cancelled unless otherwise agreed beforehand. All places booked must be paid for within 7 days after the stay. A charge of 10% of the outstanding balance will be charged for each month or part of a month that fees are overdue, unless otherwise agreed beforehand. Charges will be levied if any cancelled places are not re-let. Full fees are payable if cancellation is within 2 weeks, and half fees between 2 and 6 weeks of the booked dates.

Caseg Fraith is a privately owned mountaineering club hut. All persons using the hut do so at their own risk. No responsibility is accepted for personal injury, loss, or damage to property, however arising.

The person booking agrees to indemnify the Trustees in respect of any damage to the hut or loss or damage to fittings equipment, or injury to any other person. We reserve the right to levy a charge of up to £100 if the hut is not left in a clean and tidy condition for the next party or if electricity is wasted because heating or lighting is not switched off on departure.

It is the responsibly of the accompanying adult to ensure that children for whom they are responsible are safeguarded and well-behaved at all times while at the hut.

Parking is strictly regulated and spaces are allocated before the visit.  We reserve the right to levy a charge of up to £100 if any of the parking instructions are not followed.

As the hut is surrounded by a working sheep farm and the farmer does not allow anyone on his campsite or staying in one of his bunkhouses to bring a dog, we regret that dogs are also not permitted at the hut.

All guests are expected to follow all the instructions in the hut user information which will be provided.
