Self catering bunkhouse in the Brecon Beacons

Stay on an idyllic Welsh hill farm in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Coed Owen Bunkhouse can sleep up to 26 guests and provides a fully equipped commercial stainless steel kitchen with open plan dining and comfortable sitting area. Coed Owen is a great place for stag, hen and family celebratory parties or gatherings. We can highly recommend our local outdoor activity providers for those adrenaline junkie weekends or places to meditate and chill. Large and small groups will enjoy this beautiful area with the benefit of direct access onto the mountains. Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in Southern Britain is just 2.5 hours' walk from Coed Owen, we are surrounded by waterfall country and Bike Park Wales is 10 minutes' drive away. Historic Merthyr Tydfil, Penderyn Whiskey and the lovely Georgian town of Brecon are all within easy reach. We have plenty of outdoor space for children, a BBQ area and separate building with a wood burning stove, for those long, cosy night chats. The pub is just at the bottom of our farm drive and serves great food and fine ales.

News & Offers from Coed Owen Bunkhouse

Henry Vaughan’s poetry, inspired by the Brecon Beacons, depicts the value of this area’s nature in the lives of those who visit…

August 9th 2019

…so come visit the “fair, shining mountains…
And flow’ry vales, whose flow’rs were stars…”

Pwll-yr-Wrach Reserve is famous for its beautiful bluebells; bluebell walks in the Brecon Beacons were, no doubt, part of Vaughan’s inspiration. This stunning, serene reserve is only a 30 minute drive from Coed Owen Bunkhouse, and better still we have our own bluebell woods right here! So come visit us next spring to feast your eyes upon our own purple stars…


Coed Owen Bunkhouse

March 7th 2018

Peaceful and tucked away on an idyllic Welsh hill farm in the heart of the Breacon Beacons National Park. A pub at the foot of the drive. Lovely walks. What more could you ask for?

The last Natter about Coed Owen Bunkhouse highlighted the seclusion and access to the wild as perfect for ‘adrenaline junkies’ and ‘party people’. Well that just sounds a bit too tiring for me.

What about those of us of a more sedate turn of mind, pleased with mountain hikes, not mountain bikes, with pleasant views rather than extreme downhill kayaking. Luckily Coed Owen suits us too!

On an idyllic Welsh Hill Farm in the heart (really – the heart – Look it up on a map) of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The pub is at the foot of the farm drive. Penderyn Whiskey is right over there. The historic and picturesque town of Brecon is close. And to break things up a little, there are walks in the hills right from the door.

The Bunkhouse sleeps 26 in a variety of rooms and has a shared kitchen, living space and showers. There’s a very secure cycle shed. A newly completed barn conversion sleeps 9 on the site too.

Peaceful and tucked away. A quiet drink nearby. Lovely walks. Ahhh!
