At 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 for the wood burner. Dogs welcome by prior arrangement.

This accommodation is featured on our map of Snowdonia and North Wales and here is its own website.

Everyone loves staying at Bron-y-Gader

May 21st 2021

We offer an affordable solution for groups of friends adventuring in and around Snowdonia. Our remote location has jaw dropping views right from the window, inspiration for where to explore next. Despite this you won’t have to go too far to reach civilisation. Conwy with its vibrant atmosphere and many great places to eat and drink is just 8 miles away. Just on from that is Llandudno, a favourite of Lewis Carroll. And when you get back you’ll be safe in the knowledge you can light the woodburner and have a cosy night in with friends.
