The Star Bunkhouse at Bwlch is situated right on the Beacons Way long-distance footpath in the gap between the Black Mountains and the Central Beacons mountain range. The Beacons Way passes right by the bunkhouse on day three, when traveling from East to West. It can also be used as a base for night two, as Stagecoach X43 runs every other hour from Crickhowell to All Saints, which is 5 minutes walk from The Star. The bunkhouse welcomes individuals and groups of all sizes, and makes a great place to meet and swap stories with fellow travelers.
A truly glorious walk for those who are sure of their navigation skills. The path passes through the Black Mountains and east of the Breacon Beacons National Park onto the wild western Beacons where you walk under wide skies with no sign of humans and no roads. The route is waymarked where it crosses farmland, but there is no waymarking on open hills and moorland. Here is a page showing all the hostels and bunkhouses on or near The Beacons Way in the independent network.
