Nestling on the edge of the pretty market town of Dolgellau in the Snowdonia National Park, Torrent Walk Bunkhouse provides an ideal base for exploring the rugged beauty and many attractions of Snowdonia. The newly refurbished bunkhouse sleeps 36 across 6 rooms and is ideal for couples & groups of all sizes. Centrally heated it's clean, bright and cosy with a large, well equipped kitchen/diner. The shower/toilet block (with power showers to massage those aching muscles!) is right next to the front door. Also outside there's a large fire pit with plenty of seating and lots of car parking. Torrent Bunkhouse is very popular with walkers as Dolgun Uchaf is central to many great walks, with Cadair Idris just a 5 minute drive away. It is also ideal for mountain biking with world class cycling at nearby Coed-y-Brenin and Mawddach Trail. Other popular local attractions include Difi forest, Bala white water rafting, Zip World & Bounce Below and the Corris Craft Centre. Whats more the picturesque seaside town of Barmouth is only 10 miles away. There are also holiday apartments, B&B rooms and camping on site.

A bunkhouse on the Mach Loop

April 17th 2019

Torrent Walk Bunkhouse in Dolgellau, Snowdonia has a few surprises for its guests. Not only does it have one of the prettiest riverside circular walks (Torrent Walk) literally on the doorstep, part of the walk is under the Mach Loop.

The Mach Loop is a set of valleys, situated between Dolgellau in the north, and Machynlleth in the south (and from which the Mach Loop gets its name), which are regularly used for low level flight training, with flying as low as 250 feet (76 metres) from the nearest terrain. What better two reasons do you need to rest your head at Torrent Walk Bunkhouse for a night or two.
