Simply the Best
June 4th 2019
Ogwen Valley Bunkhouse may offer simple accommodation but according to its guests it’s one of the best! ‘Amazing Place to stay’. ‘Awesome base for the mountains’. ‘The outdoor space for the kids was perfect’. ‘Just back from my fifth trip….already looking forward to next year.’
What more can be said? The best feedback is always from previous guests. Your host Gwyn and his lovely dog Floss will make you feel very welcome. The beds are comfortable, the settees are deep and soft, there’s underfloor heating, a log burner and a drying room. Your dogs are welcome, there’s parking for at least 10 cars outside and it’s easy to find. And the icing on the cake is it’s location. The wonders of Snowdonia and Ogwen Valley Bunkhouse await you.
