Bunkhouse in the Brecon Beacons

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 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. Two pubs nearby offer real ale and bar food.

Small or large groups are welcome, but there is a minimum charge.

Just 50 minutes from the M4 Severn Bridge and one hour from the M5/M50 junction, this must be one of the easiest bunk barns to reach from the motorways - and yet you feel you are miles from anywhere

This accommodation is featured on our map of South Wales and Pembrokeshire and here is its own website.
