Eco Bunkhouse in the Mountains of Snowdonia

February 13th 2020

Ogwen Valley Bunkhouse has 4kw of solar panels providing electricity, 30 tubes of thermal collectors providing hot water and central heating by air source heat pump.
You can’t get much greener then that, and did I mention that the water is straight from a fresh mountain stream.

Thinking about food miles, you can’t get much greener than local then water from Afon Berthan, a fresh mountain stream that passes by Ogwen Valley Bunkhouse.  UV treated to remove any bugs, this you will feel this fresh Welsh Water doing you good.

In the heart of the Ogwen Valley and surrounded by the Welsh 3000’s, this hostel is the perfect base for walkers, climbers and cyclists with the best routes straight from the door.  Newly refurbished with comfy beds all made up and a superb kitchen diner for self catering.

Ogwen Valley Bunkhouse has bike storage. Dodge goats whilst speeding down Snowdon!

November 27th 2019

A hardcore mountain bikers paradise, Snowdonia has endless off piste action and lots of structured trails just waiting to be attacked. Ogwen Valley Bunkhouse offers a brilliant place to experience it all.

Snowdonia, home to the UK’s first purpose built mountain bike center. For mountain bike enthusiasts it really doesn’t get much better. Whether you’re an amateur or pro there’s a trail to get stuck into, gorgeous scenery stretching for miles around. Fresh air being widely available in Wales there’s no excuse not to get out of breath rushing down some of the most stunning mountains in the country. From October to April cyclists have full use of the bridleways of Snowdon, just watch out for walkers and goats! And fortunately the Bunkhouse allows bikes to be stored inside for peace of mind.
