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

Bunkorama accommodation overlooking the Stunning Mawddach Estuary
January 13th 2019
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 (voted the most beautiful Estuary in Britain) 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.
Barmouth Hurly Burly Outdoor Swim
October 2nd 2018
Late September is the time when the Outdoor Swimming Society with over 800 participants dash into the water at Barmouth and swim the 10K up the estuary to Penmaenpool.
Its a spectacular and popular event with many swimmers and runners seeking hostel and camping accommodation in the area. The Bunkorama has been a popular choice over the last 2 years and I guess that the HYB and Kings Hostel will also be great places for participants to stay at. Check out our video of the 2018 event.
Amazing dedicated MTB trails through the forest.
March 22nd 2018
Bunkorama is ideally placed for Coed Y Brenin in South Snowdonia.
I’ll bet if you’re a keen mountain biker then you already know about Coed Y Brenin. The UK’s first dedicated MTB centre offering amazing trails through the Welsh countryside. As a cyclist and father of adventurous cyclist I’m excited by the range of challenge they offer. I can’t be the only person who enjoys riding the trails with his kids, can I? They’re colour coded like ski runs, with black being the toughest. I reckon we’ll try the Minotaur trail which has berms, downhills, some tricky jumps and a track of shiny hoofprints to remind you there’s a minotaur about!
Bunkorama is ideally placed for Coed Y Brenin. A traditional bunkhouse converted from a stone stable. Its got a simple kitchen, toilet block and drying facilities – just as you’d expect.
“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.” Their blurb says. After an adrenalined race round the hills – I think so too!
