PA DDILLAD FYDD ANGEN AR GYFER YMWELIAD AM DDIWRNOD?

Mae Ynys Hywel yn darparu’r holl ddillad amddiffynnol angenrheidiol gan gynnwys dillad gwrth-ddŵr ac esgidiau addas. Os oes gennych rai eich hun, mae croeso i ddod â nhw gyda chi. Gwnewch yn siŵr bod y dillad yr ydych chi’n gwisgo oddi tano yn addas ar gyfer yr awyr agored (h.y. esgidiau a sanau nid sandalau, dim jîns tynn neu ddillad ffansi.) Hyd yn oed gyda dillad amddiffynnol, byddwch ychydig yn fwdlyd a gwlyb. Dewch â dillad i newid a lliain, mae hyn yn hanfodol ar gyfer teithiau cerdded ceunentydd neu ogofa.

AI’R CYNGOR SY PIAU YNYS HYWEL?

Na. Prynwyd Ynys Hywel yn 2011 gan ACT Training, darparwr hyfforddiant mwyaf Cymru. Mae ACT Training yn rhedeg y ganolfan er budd eu dysgwyr yn ogystal ag yn fasnachol ar gyfer ysgolion, grwpiau ieuenctid, datblygu tîm corfforaethol ac elusennau.

Dwy afr (o’r enw Socks a Sandals), day fochyn, tua tri deg iâr, deg twrci a chwch o wenyn.

BETH YW UCHAFSWM/ISAFSWM MAINT Y GRWPIAU?

Codir tâl am y rhan fwyaf o’r sesiynau fesul grŵp. Rydym yn argymell isafswm o 2 gyfranogwr am resymau diogelwch. Rydym yn argymell grŵp o 12 ar gyfer ansawdd a gwerth, ond gallwn gymryd mwy ar sesiynau penodol. Gellir trafod hyn wrth drefnu’r ymweliad.

SAWL GRŴP FEDRAI DDOD Â NHW?

Fel arfer, dau grŵp ar gyfer gweithgareddau preswyl ac oddi ar y safle, ond medrwn ddarparu ar gyfer mwy yn ystod dyddiau adeiladu tîm, preswyl cynradd a round robin.

A FEDRAI DDOD Â BWYD FY HUN?

Gallwn ddarparu ar gyfer pob gofyn deietegol a wnawn ni ddim gadael i chi lwgu. Os ydych chi yn dod â bwyd mae gennym le i’w storio yn y gegin. Peidiwch cadw bwyd yn yr ystafelloedd am resymau hylendid. Dylid nodi hefyd nad ydym yn caniatáu diodydd egni ar y safle.

A OES CYFYNGIADAU PWYSAU AR GYFER GWEITHGAREDDAU?

Yr unig gyfyngiad maint yw maint gwast. Mae ein harnais mwyaf yn “56.

FAINT O STAFF SYDD ANGEN I MI EI DDARPARU AR GYFER FY NGRŴP?

Dim ond un aelod o staff fesul grŵp sydd angen i chi ei ddarparu, fodd bynnag, chi sy’n adnabod eich grŵp felly dewch â staff i fodloni eu anghenion. Rydym yn argymell o leiaf 2 aelod o staff ar gyfer gweithgaredd preswyl am resymau diogelwch. Yn ddelfrydol, un gwryw ac un benyw.

A OES ANGEN I FY STAFF GYMRYD RHAN?

Rydym yn argymell yn gryf y dylai staff gymryd rhan yn y gweithgareddau. Nid yn unig yw’n creu ymddygiad cadarnhaol ar gyfer eich grŵp, ond cânt brofiad llawer mwy pleserus. Os oes gan aelod o staff rheswm da dros beidio cymryd rhan, megis rhesymau meddygol, bydd angen o leiaf un aelod o staff i fod yn bresennol yn y weithgaredd.

ALL FY NGHYFRANOGWYR BEICHIOG GYMRYD RHAN YN Y GWEITHGAREDDAU?

Yn anffodus, oherwydd y risg, ni allwn adael i unigolion beichiog gymryd rhan yn unrhyw un o’n gweithgareddau.

A YDYCH YN DARPARU AR GYFER CADEIRIAU OLWYN?

Mae’r adeilad yn addas ar gyfer cadeiriau olwyn, gyda drysau llydan a lifft rhwng lloriau. Serch hyn, darpariaeth gyfyngedig sydd gennym yn y sesiynau. Ffoniwch ni er mwyn trafod yr opsiynau.

Rydym yn ymdrechu i gynhyrchu bwyd di-glwten pryd bynnag mae’n bosibl ac rydym yn fwy gofalus ynghylch rhwystro halogiad. Mae ein sgôr hylendid pum seren yn glod i ni. Os cawn ddigon o rybudd, medrwn sicrhau ein bod yn paratoi bwydlen at anghenion a chwaeth pawb.

BETH DDYLIWN I WNEUD OS YW NIFEROEDD FY NGRWPIAU YN NEWID?

Peidiwch â phoeni; rydym yn deall ei bod yn anodd cael niferoedd pendant ar gyfer digwyddiad. Oherwydd hyn, rydym yn codi tâl fesul grŵp er mwyn darparu rhywfaint o ryddid gyda’r rhifau. Os credwch y gallwch fynd yn uwch na’r gymhareb (fel arfer 12:1), cysylltwch â ni fel y gallwn naill ai ganfod gweithgaredd amgen a fydd yn addas neu ychwanegu tâl bach ychwanegol i ddarparu ar gyfer eich niferoedd newydd.

A OES GENNYCH LEFYDD PARCIO?

Rydym yn darparu trafnidiaeth a gellir trefnu hyn pan yn bwcio.

A FEDRAI DDOD Â GRŴPIAU HYDD A IÂR?

Oherwydd natur ein busnes a’n polisïau, ni fedrwn ddarparu ar gyfer partïon hydd a iâr sydd am gynnwys alcohol. Heblaw am hynny, gallwch!

A OES GENNYCH DRWYDDED AALA?

Oes, rydym wedi ein trwyddedu’n llawn. Gallwch weld manylion ein trwydded yma

A YW GWOBR JOHN MUIR WEDI EI HACHREDU?

Nid yw gwobr John Muir yn gyfleuster achrededig, serch hynny, caiff ei chydnabod gan gyflogwyr ac mae’n ateb nifer o feini prawf y cwricwlwm ac ESDGC.

Team Building Theme Days

Bring your team together with our unique programmes designed to give you an incredible experience.

THE HEIST

Come together to plan, execute and succeed in the Heist. As a team you will need to crack the safe. The only way this can be done is to successfully complete all challenges that you face in the Ynys Hywel embassy! Teams of agents will face each other and race to open the safe. Be careful not to get caught by the patrolling guard.

ALLIED FORCES

How efficient is your team? You and your team will face up to 15 different challenges that are positioned around Ynys Hywel. You have the option to complete the challenges with another team or brave them alone. Sometimes extra hands make light work but also too many cooks spoil the broth! All challenges are timed and you will not know who the fastest team is until the end!

THE YNYS TUCKER CHALLENGE

Our take on the popular show “I’m a celebrity get me out of here!” You will be competing against fellow challengers to get stars! You will need to overcome mental obstacles along with physical challenges. Getting muddy, wet and eating bugs are quite likely!

SERENDIPITY

Your mental agility and communication will be tested! Teams will face many obscure challenges. We will test your ability to think outside the box and skills to communicate effectively. Serendipity will challenge all aspects of team work and camaraderie.
All teambuilding days will receive a review of achievements and winners will receive prizes!

Team building with a difference

Ynys Hywel aims to make team building accessible to everyone. Varied tasks make the most of everyone’s skills and mean that your team is not doing something they’ve done many times before. We try to set up our days so individual choices are as much a part of the day as the activities themselves. The choices available range from tame to wild with each day featuring at least one onsite activity to get your blood pumping.

Varied tasks make the most of everyone’s skills and mean that your team is not doing something they’ve done many times before. We try to set up our days so individual choices are as much a part of the day as the activities themselves.

The Heist

A great rainy day activity, this game pits you against each other in a game of international espionage. As a team you must move stealthily around the Ynys Hywel Embassy avoiding detection by security and be the first to crack the safe and lift the top secret documents. To do this you must complete challenges in different rooms whilst collecting recon to gain advantages over other intelligence agencies.

Serendipity

Serendipity has much more varied tasks that can be photographic, linguistic, theatrical, physical, skill based as well as the more traditional team building games. Teams can divide up to make better use of their individual skill or work together. Some tasks are short and sweet with incremental rewards; some are big gambles and investments of time.

This day will give you a clear reflection of how you and your team work as well as a great project management experience. There are so many different ways to play this game that only the savviest workers will triumph.

Allied Forces

Allied Forces is a tactical game of wit, politics, and guile. We give you a vast array of various ‘Timed’ and ‘Adventure’ team building tasks that challenge mind, body and spirit that will be marked on how well you do in comparison to other teams. Your challenge is to decide when it is advantageous for you to go it alone and when you should join forces with another team; be it to exploit their skills, make up the numbers or even sabotage their efforts. How will you win the day?

This team building day will challenge and develop organisation, time keeping, planning and teamwork as well as push boundaries and give new experiences. We will adapt the day to meet your needs so have a look at our onsite activities to see what you would like included in your day.

The Ynys Tucker Challenge

 

The Ynys Tucker challenge will make a monkey of you. Our muckiest most challenging team building day yet. Push your team to the limit and get the most out of them. Tougher, Muddier, Bolder, Faster. Been here before or just have a team that like jumping in the deep end. Get some nuts, there will be Bugs.

Activity days

We can always tailor make you a day. Why not take your team Gorge Walking and come back to Ynys Hywel for some Pizza Making at the Outdoor Pizza oven? Have a look at what we offer to put together a day that suits you.

Mae Ynys Hywel yn cadw’r hawl i ganslo eich archeb o ganlyniad i dywydd gwael neu oherwydd ffactorau eraill sydd allan o’n rheolaeth.

Os oes rhaid canslo eich archeb, byddwn yn ymdrechu i drefnu gweithgaredd neu ddyddiad arall.

Diogelwch A Ffitrwydd Corfforol

Rhaid i gyfranogwyr 18oed a hŷn lenwi FFURFLEN GWYBODAETH BERSONOL. Rhaid i’r holl gyfranogwyr 18oed a iau ddarparu FFURFLEN CANIATÂD wedi ei chwblhau gan riant neu warcheidwad. Rhaid dod â’r ffurflenni, wedi eu cwblhau, gyda chi ar y diwrnod cyntaf. Mae’r rhan fwyaf o weithgareddau Ynys Hywel yn gorfforol iawn. Dylech sicrhau bod gan y cyfranogwyr lefel ffitrwydd digonol ar gyfer y gweithgareddau a gynhelir. Rhowch wybod i ni am unrhyw gyflyrau meddygol fydd yn effeithio cyfranogiad eich grŵp wrth archebu. Dylai cyfranogwyr ofyn am gyngor meddygol os oes angen. Nid ydym wedi ein yswirio ar gyfer cael cyfranogwyr beichiog ar y safle. Gall ymddygiad anaddas arwain at gyfranogwyr yn cael eu heithrio o sesiwn neu o weithgareddau pellach. Yn y sefyllfaoedd hyn, caiff ei drafod gyda arweinydd y grŵp neu rieni/warcheidwaid ac efallai bydd angen iddynt gymryd y cyfranogwr o’r ganolfan. Bydd penderfyniad y rheolwyr ar ddyletswydd yn derfynol ac ni ddarperir ad-daliad. Mae diogelwch yn hollbwysig ac mae’n rhaid i’r holl gyfranogwyr dderbyn bod penderfyniad yr hyfforddwr gweithgarwch yn derfynol a rhaid iddo gael ei dderbyn gan y cyfranogwyr bob amser. Ni fydd Ynys Hywel yn derbyn unrhyw atebolrwydd am broblemau sy’n deillio o fethiant i dderbyn a/neu ymateb i awdurdod a chyfarwyddiadau’r hyfforddwyr.

Yswiriant

Mae gan ganolfan weithgareddau Ynys Hywel yswiriant atebolrwydd cyflogwyr ac yswiriant atebolrwydd cyhoeddus ac mae dim ond yn derbyn cyfrifoldeb am golled, difrod neu anaf sy’n deillio o esgeulustod Ynys Hywel.

Eich cyfrifoldeb chi yw trefnu yswiriant priodol yn erbyn canslo, cwtogi, damweiniau personol, atebolrwydd personol, colled, difrod a lladrad.

Parcio Ar Y Safle

Mae llefydd parcio ar y safle yn gyfyngedig a lle y bo modd, rydym yn gofyn i ymwelwyr drefnu i rannu lifft. Cyfrifoldeb y perchnogion yw cerbydau a chynnwys a adewir.

Ysmygu

Er cysur, iechyd a diogelwch eraill, ni chaniateir ysmygu yn ystod gweithgareddau. Cewch ysmygu yn y mannau ysgmygu dynodedig yn unig.

Anifeiliaid

Ni chaniateir anifeiliaid o fewn y ganolfan nac ar y safle oni bai fod hynny wedi ei gytuno gyda’r rheolwr ar ddyletswydd wrth archebu.

Cyfryngaua

Gall ffotograffau, fideos, neu ddeunyddiau eraill sydd wedi’u recordio gan Ynys Hywel gael eu defnyddio at ddibenion marchnata neu hysbysebu heb gynnig unrhyw daliad na iawndal a heb i unrhyw gais gael ei wneud. Gadewch wybod pan fyddwch yn archebu os nad ydych yn derbyn y telerau hyn.

Difrod Neu Golled

Rhowch wybod i staff Ynys Hywel am unrhyw golled neu ddifrod i eiddo Ynys Hywel cyn neu yn ystod eich ymweliad. O ganlyniad i ddifrod a achosir i eiddo neu gyfarpar gan gyfranogwyr, ag eithrio traul teg, bydd y grŵp yn gyfrifol am y costau amnewid llawn.

Camddefynyddio Alcohol a Sylweddau

Ni fydd unrhywun, o dan unrhyw amgylchiadau, yn cael cymryd rhan mewn gweithgaredd os o dan ddylanwad alcohol neu gyffuriau heb bresgripsiwn. Gellir trafod yfed alcohol yn gyfreithiol, os nad yw’n effeithio ar eich cyfranogiad i weithgareddau, gyda’r rheolwr ar ddyletswydd.

Cwynion A Phroblemau

Os bydd problem yn codi yng nghanolfan weithgareddau Ynys Hywel neu oddi ar y safle gyda Ynys Hywel, rhowch wybod i’r rheolwr ar ddyletswydd neu hyfforddwr Ynys Hywel cyn gynted â phosibl. Dylid anfon cwynion yn ysgrifenedig at y rheolwr oedd ar ddyletswydd yng nghanolfan weithgareddau Ynys Hywel yn ystod eich ymweliad, a byddwn yn ymateb o fewn 5 diwrnod gwaith. Bydd yr ymateb yn cynnwys manylion ynghylch unrhyw gamau y bwriadwn eu cymryd.

Cyfyngiadau Oedran

Rhaid i’r holl gyfranogwyr fod dros 8oed ar gyfer ein holl weithgareddau. Gallwn ddarparu rhaglenni ysgolion ar gyfer plant o dan 8, ond byddai angen trafod hyn yn ystod camau cychwynnol yr archeb. Gall methu cydymffurfio â’r telerau a’r amodau uchod arwain at y cyfranogwyr yn gorfod gadael y safle heb ad-daliad.

Lawrlwytho Ffurflenni

Ysgolion Cynradd

Dysgu ynghylch sut mae bywyd yn gweithio y tu allan i amgylchedd yr ystafell ddosbarth yw’r hyn y dylai addysg awyr agored fod. Profi’r holl uchafbwyntiau ac isafbwyntiau; dysgu i ddelio â heriau a goresgyn rhwystrau, ond mewn amgylchedd diogel a chefnogol. Yn Ynys Hywel, credwn fod plant angen cymwysiadau ymarferol i osod gwaith ysgol yn ei gyd-destun, rydym am gadw’r byd yn gyffrous a sicrhau fod plant yn ysu am wybodaeth.

Mae ein diwrnod unigryw a phersonol ac ymweliadau preswyl yn sicr o ysbrydoli a chymell plant, gan feithrin cariad tuag at antur. Gallwch ddewis o amrywiaeth eang o weithgareddau hwyliog ac ysbrydoledig a threulio un neu sawl diwrnod (a nosweithiau) yn ein canolfan. Gellir teilwra’r holl raglenni at eich anghenion.

FAQs

WHAT CLOTHING SHOULD I BRING FOR A DAY TRIP?

Ynys Hywel provides all necessary protective clothing including waterproofs and boots. If you have your own, please feel free to bring them with you. Please make sure the clothing you wear underneath is suitable for the outdoors (i.e. shoes and socks not sandals, no tight jeans or fancy clothes.) Even with protective clothing you will get a bit muddy and wet. You may want to bring a complete change of clothes and a towel, this is essential for gorge walks or caving.

WHAT ANIMALS DO YOU HAVE AT YNYS HYWEL?

Two goats (named Socks and Sandals), two pigs, around thirty chickens and a hive of bees.

WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM/MINIMUM GROUP SIZE?

Most sessions are charged per group. We recommend a minimum of 2 participants for safeguarding reasons. We recommend a group of 12 for maximum quality and value. We can cater for day groups as large as 60. This can be discussed upon booking.

CAN I BRING MY OWN FOOD?

We can cater for all dietary requirements and we won’t let you go hungry. If you do bring food we have storage in the kitchen for you. Please do not have food in the rooms for the sake of hygiene. It should also be noted we do not allow energy drinks on site.

ARE THERE WEIGHT LIMITS FOR ACTIVITIES?

The only size consideration is waist size, our biggest harness is 56″.

HOW MANY STAFF DO I NEED TO BRING FOR MY GROUP?

We only require you to bring one member of staff per group, however you know your group best so bring staff to best meet their needs. We recommend at least 2 members of staff for residential for safeguarding reasons. Ideally one male and one female..

DO MY STAFF NEED TO TAKE PART?

We highly recommend that staff get stuck in with the activities as well. Not only does it model positive behaviour for your group, they’ll also have a much more enjoyable experience. If a member of staff has a good reason not to join in, such as medical reasons, we will require at least one member of staff to be present on the activity.

CAN MY PREGNANT PARTICIPANTS TAKE PART IN ACTIVITIES?

Unfortunately, due to the risk involved, we cannot allow anybody who is pregnant on any activity.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY GROUP NUMBER CHANGES?

Don’t worry; we understand it’s hard to get definite numbers for an event. If you think your groups size is likely to change, contact us as quickly as possible so that we can either find an alternative activity that will be suitable or add a small surcharge to accommodate your new numbers.

.

DO YOU HAVE PARKING?

We have limited parking for about 10 cars. We would recommend car sharing or getting a mini bus. There is additional free parking at the bottom of our hill.

Team building with a difference

Ynys Hywel aims to make team building accessible to everyone. Varied tasks make the most of everyone’s skills and mean that your team is not doing something they’ve done many times before. We try to set up our days so individual choices are as much a part of the day as the activities themselves. The choices available range from tame to wild with each day featuring at least one onsite activity to get your blood pumping.

Varied tasks make the most of everyone’s skills and mean that your team is not doing something they’ve done many times before. We try to set up our days so individual choices are as much a part of the day as the activities themselves.

The Heist

A great rainy day activity, this game pits you against each other in a game of international espionage. As a team you must move stealthily around the Ynys Hywel Embassy avoiding detection by security and be the first to crack the safe and lift the top secret documents. To do this you must complete challenges in different rooms whilst collecting recon to gain advantages over other intelligence agencies.

Serendipity

Serendipity has much more varied tasks that can be photographic, linguistic, theatrical, physical, skill based as well as the more traditional team building games. Teams can divide up to make better use of their individual skill or work together. Some tasks are short and sweet with incremental rewards; some are big gambles and investments of time.

This day will give you a clear reflection of how you and your team work as well as a great project management experience. There are so many different ways to play this game that only the savviest workers will triumph.

Allied Forces

Allied Forces is a tactical game of wit, politics, and guile. We give you a vast array of various ‘Timed’ and ‘Adventure’ team building tasks that challenge mind, body and spirit that will be marked on how well you do in comparison to other teams. Your challenge is to decide when it is advantageous for you to go it alone and when you should join forces with another team; be it to exploit their skills, make up the numbers or even sabotage their efforts. How will you win the day?

This team building day will challenge and develop organisation, time keeping, planning and teamwork as well as push boundaries and give new experiences. We will adapt the day to meet your needs so have a look at our onsite activities to see what you would like included in your day.

The Ynys Tucker Challenge

 

The Ynys Tucker challenge will make a monkey of you. Our muckiest most challenging team building day yet. Push your team to the limit and get the most out of them. Tougher, Muddier, Bolder, Faster. Been here before or just have a team that like jumping in the deep end. Get some nuts, there will be Bugs.

Activity days

We can always tailor make you a day. Why not take your team Gorge Walking and come back to Ynys Hywel for some Pizza Making at the Outdoor Pizza oven? Have a look at what we offer to put together a day that suits you.
