Welcome/Croeso to the South Wales Caving Club!  

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - HQ Open (Members Only)

Updated  Monday 24th May 2021

As a result of the Welsh Government level-2 relaxation, the HQ is now opened up as internal accommodation for a maximum of 8 pre-booked households, using the rear bedrooms in Nos 3,5,6,7,8,9,10 and the front bedroom in No 6 on a single-household occupancy basis. These bunk rooms are available to members only at this present time but members are also at liberty to bring guests as allowed for under the club rules.  

Camping and motorhomes will be available to members without booking. Members staying outside the HQ will be able to make full use of the shared facilities. We are not able to make camping available to non-members at this time. The changing rooms and showers are now open for use by day cavers, whether members or non-members.

SWCC have put together a COVID-19 Strategy for using the HQ. Please read through this and the new Interim Guidance and Procedures for accessing OFD before visiting the HQ, both of which can be found on our COVID-19 page.

Please check our COVID-19 page before travelling to the HQ for the latest information and access arrangements.

Thank you,



SWCC is an active caving club based in Penwyllt, near Abercraf, fifteen miles North of Swansea, South Wales. We have around 300 members from all around the UK as well as overseas. Our primary focus is caving in South Wales but the club has frequent trips to other UK caving regions as well as expeditions worldwide. 

South Wales is one of the finest caving regions in the UK, directly below our headquarters lies Ogof Ffynnon Ddu and across the valley is Dan-yr-Ogof, two very extensive cave systems, with many others within easy reach. It is also a great area for walking and cycling, bordering on the Black Mountain and the Brecon Beacons.
