Wooden bunkhouse

Space and wildlife right at the centre of Wales

April 2nd 2020

Mid Wales Bunkhouse and Camping is in a quiet area which is splendidly wild. Be it summer or winter it can be explored by bike, on foot, on horseback or by canoe, with each season offering its own insights.

We are close to the Elan and Wye Valleys, the Trans Cambrian Trail and Glyndwrs Way. The Lon Las Cymru cycle route is also close by, and on our website you will find a suggested, and we believe more interesting alternative route, taking you right past the door. The Radnorshire Ring, regional cycle route 25, also passes close by, and this can easily form part of a circuit across Wales from East to West.
