Bunkorama, Gwastad Agnes Off Panorama Road, Barmouth, Gwynedd, LL42 1DX
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 Cambrian Way, Cycle route 8 and the Ardudwy Way.
For mountain goats the rock climbing of 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.

News & Offers
Two good two be missed – Two people can book a package of two days walking led by local experienced guides and three nights accommodation. You will have a continental breakfast and a packed lunch for two people.
The Bunkorama has always offered great value for those wanting a spectacular base for those who want to explore the mountains coast and rivers of South Snowdonia. We have teamed up with the Barmouth Walking festival to offer you two full days to experience a sample from a whole programme of walks that have developed exclusively by our own local experts who have been developing and leading the works for many years. The walks span a whole array of challenge levels, with different lengths; opportunities to explore mountains, rivers, lakes and coast; walks with a more specialist theme such as history or wildlife. And in the evenings there are a number of events such as meals, quizzes and talks specifically aimed at those taking part in the festival. Or you can simply choose from one of the many great places to eat and drink in the town. The total cost of the package is from £170 for two people. Activity holidays just don’t get any more affordable than this. Check out the Walking festival schedule of events at BARMOUTH WALKING FESTIVAL 2017 then give us a call on 01341 281134 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss what days you would like to visit, what walks you would like to book and if you would like us to book any evening events for your party.
Your walking break will include:
- 3 nights bunkhouse bed for 2 people in a 4 bed bunk room (so you may be sharing)
- 2 walks for each person
- Continental breakfast each morning that you can serve yourself at a time that suits your walk
- Packed lunch for each walk
If you have changes, special requirements and enhancements you would like to make to the package we are happy to discuss that with you and see if we can help
