Self catering bunkhouse close to Barmouth

Some places you will stay at for a short while, but they will stay with you for ever. The Bunkorama at Gwastad Agnes is such a place.

This converted stone stable provides comfortable and well equipped accommodation for cyclists, backpackers, climbers and explorers. At the end of a day's expedition you can sit at the Bunkorama, cuppa in your hands and trace your route across from Cader Idris. You can gaze out across Cardigan Bay and wonder why you had never discovered Gwastad Agnes before. You certainly won't forget it.

The Bunkorama provides accommodation for individuals or groups in Snowdonia close to the Wales Coast Path, Cambrian Way, Cycle route 8 and the Ardudwy Way. For mountain goats the rock climbing at the Barmouth Slabs is a 5 minute walk and for mountain bikers you are only 20 minutes by car to Coed y Brenin, the UK's first dedicated mountain bike centre.
And after a fun day exploring you will find that Barmouth with its beach, shops, pubs and places to eat is only a mile away

Dogs can be accommodated with group bookings. Bunkorama offers the additional flexibility of a Camping pod adjacent to the Bunkhouse that will sleep up to a family of 2 adults and 2 children. This can be booked with the Bunkhouse or on its own for an individual, couple or family who want their own space.

This place is so beautiful, it inspired the works of William Wordsworth, John Ruskin and Gerald Manly Hopkins.

January 3rd 2023

The Cambrian Coast brings together coast and mountains with several hostels that provide shelter for those walking the Wales Coast path and a base for sea kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, canyoning and rock climbing.

An idylic landscape in the summer sun but also beautiful at Easter, the time of lambs and bluebells in the fields around Bunkorama.

Explore a most beautiful corner of Snowdonia. Not only the Cambrian Coast and Mawddach Estuary (which inspired the works of William Wordsworth, John Ruskin and Gerald Manly Hopkins.) but also the lively waters of the Afon Cynfal.  These can be discovered tumbling down a dramatic gorge near to Llyn Morwynion, the legendary lake of the maidens that is a feature of the tale of  Blodeuwed. It is a beautiful area with fantastic views down the Dwyryd Estuary and near to the heart of the Welsh Slate Story.

You can stop for more than a moment and feel the full magic of Snowdonia and Gwynedd.
