OverviewAt an elevation of 290m (950ft) in the foothills of Snowdonia, with direct access to many paths and tracks leading to the mountains of the Carneddau range, with its seven peaks over 3000 feet, Bron-y-Gader Bunkhouse has an enviable position. Remote and isolated, yet just 8 miles from the bustling town of Conwy, 10 miles from Betws-y-Coed and 2 miles from the village of Tal-y-bont with its pub and shop. The beaches of Llandudno and the many high adrenaline attractions of Snowdonia such as Zip World, Surf Snowdonia and Adventure Parc Snowdonia are just a short drive away. It is also conveniently located close to the end of the Welsh 3000s Challenge route and is within Snowdonia's International Dark Sky Reserve. Owned by small registered charity, the Blackburn & District Outdoor Pursuits Centre Trust, the bunkhouse is run entirely by volunteers and offers great value accommodation for groups of up to 37 across 6 rooms. All groups have sole use of the bunkhouse which has a fully equipped stainless steel kitchen, a small dining room seating 12 and a large hall which doubles as a dining room for large groups and an activity room. There’s a separate cosy living room with a wood burner and there is also a well equipped drying room. BYO sleeping bags, pillows and logs/coal for the wood burner. Dogs welcome by prior arrangement.

We are currently still closed due to COVID-19 but we will re-open for multi-household groups as soon as possible after the Welsh Government regulations allow. Watch this space.
Bron-y-Gader Winter Closure.
December 13th 2020
We will be closed from the beginning of December 2020 over the winter period. We will re-open in early March, provided that the Coronavirus situation and Welsh Government regulations allow.
Whilst we are closed over winter 2020/21, we will still be accepting future bookings via our Make a Booking page.
Booking availability during 2021 will be restricted because, for everyone’s safety, we will be leaving a gap of at least 72 hours, or disinfecting the building by ‘fogging’ with a virucidal fine mist, between bookings until the government COVID-19 restrictions are removed.
All bookings are subject to the Welsh Government regulations that apply at the time of the visit, which may result in alteration, postponement or cancellation of bookings . See our COVID-19 Terms and Conditions regarding our offer of full refund of deposits paid if cancellation due to the virus.
Bron-y-Gader is open and ready to welcome you.
November 5th 2020
If the latest Government guidelines say you can come to stay with us, we will welcome you with open arms. If you are not allowed to come now, book in for the future!
