Overview

Remote & peaceful surrounded by green pastures, sheep and the rugged splendour of Snowdonia, Ffridd Bunkhouse offers basic bunkhouse accommodation. Just 2.5 miles in land from the seaside resort of Harlech with its magnificent medieval castle, pubs, cafes, shops and visitor attractions, the bunkhouse is one of the last farmsteads before the mountains begin. The simple self catering accommodation comprises two separate units. The main bunkhouse in a converted stone barn has a 12 bed dorm with a separate kitchen/dining area. A homely Rayburn provides the heating and hot water and the WC is just outside. The smaller bunkhouse is on the first floor above the farm garage. It consists of one open plan area with a kitchen/dining corner and sleeping for 4/5 in bunks and a double bed. The WC and shower are outside. The shower is shared with the main bunkhouse. This awe inspiring location is popular with walkers, mountain bikers, climbers and lovers of the big outdoors. BYO bedding. The Ardudwy Way goes right past the doorstep while the around the Rhinogs walk, the Mawddach-Ardudwy Trail and the Walking Wales from End to End route are less than 1 km away. It's also just 3 km to The Wales Coastal Path and 4 km to the Cambrian Way. Well behaved dogs welcome by arrangement.
