Barmouth’s Bunkorama – BACK OPEN
April 27th 2021
We are so pleased to have been able to welcome guests since reopening at the start of April….However Covid has meant that we are open ….with a difference
Bunkorama is small and cozy. That means we have previously been able to let sole travellers drop in and share a dorm and a Kitchen. Sadly since 2020 Covid has meant we can only open to one party and all the members of that party must come from one household. So we now only take bookings for a minimum of 4 beds and we cannot accept travellers who are only able to book one, two or three beds.
Some good news is that our lock down project was to build a camping pod near to the bunkhouse. That is now available and means that families up to 4 can have their own self contained accommoadtion right by the bunkhouse. So two households can holiday together, one in the bunkhouse and one in the POD and be able to get together outside. The other good news is that we have kept the pod pricing in line with our bunkhouse so it is just as good value. For the moment we have closed our campsite, but groups that book the bunkhouse can also ask about bringing an additional tent and we will do our best to facilitate this. We look forward to seeing you some time in the near future if you are coming to Snowdonia and Mid West Wales.
Barmouth has more long and middle distance routes passing through it than anywhere else in Wales.

And Bunkorma is the place to stay if you want great value bunkhouse accommodation with a view to die for.
Bunkorama is a mile from the Wales Coast Path, and the start of the McMillan Cross Britain route between Boston and Barmouth. We are also close to the beautiful 25 mile Ardudwy Way. For cyclists the magnificent Lon Las Cymru (national route 8) passes through Barmouth on its stunning Journey from Holyhead to Cardiff/Chepstow. One of the worlds greatest long distance challenges is the Cambrian Way. We increasingly have visitors from across the Globe who have walked from Cardiff, Across the Brecon Beacons, through the beauty and wildness of mid wales, camped on top of Cadair Idris, then after taking on supplies at Barmouth they stop at the Bunkorama for a comfortable night before wild camping in the Rhinogs and then on to Snowdon before arriving at Conwy Castle
Barmouth Viaduct will get its £25m Restoration
May 27th 2020
This Grade II timber railway viaduct, across the stunning Mawddach Estuary, is an essential route for many long distance paths, cycle routes and the train network. Well worth the biggest upgrade in its history.
Network Rail said it had worked with heritage body Cadw and Gwynedd council on the planned redevelopment.
Bill Kelly, Network Rail’s route director for Wales and Borders, said: “Barmouth Viaduct is one of the most celebrated and recognisable structures in Wales and is the only major timber-built bridge still in use.”
“We are investing £25m to give Barmouth Viaduct the biggest upgrade in its history, protecting our industrial heritage and ensuring this vital transport link can continue to serve local people and visitors, when the time comes, for generations to come.”
James Price, chief executive of Transport for Wales, added: “As our services will be affected, it’s important for anyone travelling on the Cambrian Line to check before you travel, in case of any changes to our timetables.”
