Vagabond Bunkhouse

Vagabond Bunkhouse

“In my experience, it is rarer to find a really happy person in a circle of millionaires than among vagabonds.” – Thor Heyerdahl.

I’m dropping in the Thor Heyerdahl quote as reminder of a truth we all know. Happiness is more often to be found among those who chase adventure, experience and travel than among those who chase money. An Thor knew a thing or two about chasing adventure. 

Those of us in Britain who pursue our happiness in the bracing upland air will eventually circle back to Betws y Coed, in Snowdonia National Park: the spiritual home of many climbers, walkers and mountain bikers. 

The Vagabond Bunkhouse is in the centre of the village, easily accessible by car or bike or even via the old world charm of the train. Perhaps its the steeply sloped roofs or the precipitous backdrop or the tumbling whitewater stream, but Betws y Coed is sometimes described as ‘alpine’. It certainly does carry teh air of somewhere you’d lie to retire back to after a busy day making your heart race.  The Bunkhouse was created and individuals, families or groups,so it offer srooms sleeping 4, 6, and 8, all with clean fresh linen, duvets and personal reading lamps. Obviously there is the usual self catering kitchen and piping hot showers, but unusually it also offers an outdoor climbing wall; a power wash for hosing the Snowdonia mud from your mountain bikes (but not your mates, remember!); and – wait for it – heated individual secure dog kennels! 

Next you’re chasing that quality of life stuff, Vagabond might be the base to choose.
