This old stone barn continues the tradition of 900 years when Llanthony Priory next door provided shelter and accommodation. Surrounded by the Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park, this spectacular setting is a superb base for walking, riding, pony trekking and other mountain activities. Sixteen bunks are split into three separate areas for sleeping. There is a fully equipped kitchen, hot water for showers, heating throughout and a wood burning stove in the eating area. Small or large groups are welcome, but there is a minimum charge. Two pubs offer real ale and bar food. Just 50 minutes from the M4 Severn Bridge and one hour from the M5/M50 junction, this must be one of the easiest bunkbarns to reach from the motorways - and yet you feel you are miles from anywhere.

The Beacons Way long distance path covers 95 miles over the wildest areas of the Brecon Beacons.

November 20th 2019

Walking from East to West the first days walk will bring you to Llanthony Priory, the location of The Wain House bunkhouse. A comfortable self catering bunkhouse within walking distance of two pubs. It sleeps up to 16 and is available for group bookings only.

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.
