Based in the heart of North Wales, our Bunkhouse is just outside the village of Waunfawr and only a 5 minute drive from Mount Snowdon with its footpaths of Snowdon Ranger and Rhyd Ddu.

We are ideally situated whether you wish to visit the mountains, numerous crags or visit the historic sites of Caernarfon and Anglesey. Real Ale Pub only 10 minute walk from bunkhouse.

We converted our stone barn in 2001 to provide self catering accommodation for outdoor enthusiasts into an alpine style bunkhouse.

The accommodation is split over two floors; the ground floor has a cooking area (with gas burners, microwaves, fridge and freezer, all pots/pans cutlery provided), seating and a dining area.

The second floor is used for sleeping and can accommodate up to 16 on mattresses on five sleeping platforms 2(5)s 1(4) and 2 (1)s. Bed linen and pillow case provided you just need your sleeping bag.

Toilets with washing facilities, showers and a drying room are provided in separate blocks across the yard.

We run a variety of adventure activity courses from taster and improver courses in Kayaking / Sea Kayaking and Rock climbing plus our adventures such as coasteering or gorge scrambling are highly enjoyed.
