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 Wales Coast Bath, 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.

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!
Barmouth Bridge celebrates its 150th birthday with events and fireworks on the weekend of 14-15th October 2017
There are to be events held in Barmouth to celebrate the anniversary of the iconic Barmouth Bridge on the weekend of 14-15th October 2017. This iron and timber railway bridge has carried walkers, cyclists and local trains across the wide mouth of the stunning Mawddach estuary for 150 years. It is a key link in many of the welsh walking and cyclists routes including the Lon Las Cymru and the family friendly Mawddach Trail. A campaign is underway to provide a traffic free route from Barmouth Harbour and beach to join the bridge near the toll house. This would be the icing on the cakes for an already fabulous traffic free facility. Barmouth will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the iconic viaduct on the weekend of Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th October 2017. There will be a train themed treasure hunt through the town. The Dragon Theatre will be showing the 1941 film ‘The Ghost Train’ and there will be displays of art, photographs, memorabilia and model railways of various gauges. As darkness falls on Saturday evening, there will be a themed laser and firework extravaganza on the harbour and bridge. Bunkorama Bunkhouse is a great base for a visit to Barmouth and the celebrations. Find out more on the Barmouth Bridge Facebook page.
