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

Discover the World’s Steepest Street

August 6th 2019

Snowdonia has a new challenge this summer. Bunkorama is only 20 minutes from Harlech where you can find Ffordd Pen Llech, officially classed by Guinness World Records as the Worlds steepest street

Cyclists, walkers and explorers who have been staying at the Bunkorama, on the mountainside overlooking Cardigan Bay, have had a new must see event this summer and that is a trip to walk down or cycle up the steep ancient street that winds its way up from sea level almost to to the entrance of the Harlech Castle World Heritage site.. Cricket fans will know that New Zealanders must have been so disappointed at losing to England and Wales in the final of the cricket world cup by a whisker. But their upset was even greater when they found out that Ffordd Pen Llech has been officially recorded of being at a gradient of 37 per cent –a whisker of a mere two per cent steeper than the previous record holder in Dunedin New Zealand.. But the best news is that Bunkorama amazingly has plenty of space available if you want to visit the area this August bank holiday.


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.
