Welsh Bunkhouses : Self catering bunkhouse in the heart of Snowdonia


Caban Cysgu Gerlan Bunkhouse, Ffordd Gerlan, Gerlan, Bethesda, Bangor, LL57 3ST

Caban Cysgu offers comfortable, purpose-built accommodation at the foot of the Carneddau in the Welsh-speaking village of Gerlan. A warm welcome is guaranteed at this community run bunkhouse. An ideal location for walking in Snowdonia, providing a great base for the ‘Fourteen 3000ft Peaks’ long-distance challenge and The Slate Trail. For the adrenalin junky, it’s just a 5 minute drive to Zip World; the longest and fastest zip line in Europe, “The Nearest Thing to Flying!!” Brilliantly located for mountain biking with plenty of off-road trails nearby. And for road cyclists the bunkhouse is ideal for exploring Snowdonia, whilst for leisurely rides the hostel is within a mile of Sustrans route ‘Lôn Las Ogwen’. Rock-climbing at Idwal is close at hand, as well as Ysgolion Duon for the dedicated winter climbers. The nearby Afon Ogwen provides a popular venue for canoeists. For more leisurely pursuits, try visiting Coed Meurig, Penrhyn Castle or the Greenwood Centre. Shops, pubs and cafés in Bethesda are within walking distance.
