Call them on 08456 429294
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.

Sorry, but we are not allowed to have visitors staying whilst Conwy county, which includes a big portion of Snowdonia, is in lockdown (for at least 2 weeks). Posted 2nd October 2020.
Bron-y-Gader in Snowdonia opened it’s doors on the 22nd August 2020 for the first time since March

We are now taking new bookings for sole use via our website www.bron-y-gader.org.
We are asking anyone who chooses to use the centre to agree to adhering to the Welsh Government regulations and our new Covid-19 Terms and Conditions that apply at the time of their visit. Currently these include the statement that only one extended household can stay in the centre at any one time (this will change as the Government rules change).
