Bunkhouse above the Wye Valley

Woodlands Bunkhouse is a converted stable in the grounds of Woodlands Centre, a late Regency building, set in 10 acres of grounds. Overlooking the River Wye with wonderful views of the Black Mountains. Mostly used by schools the bunkhouse has plenty of availability for groups at weekends and during school holidays.

Woodlands is within easy reach of the spectacular limestone area to the south. Nearby is the historic town of Hay on Wye, famous for its vast array of bookshops. With its modern facilities, the Bunkhouse provides comfortable accommodation for families and a variety of groups. With recent renovations increasing the capacity to 22, the ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen and dining room. There are 3 bedrooms on the ground floor, one with en suite facilities and six first floor bedrooms and shared bathroom facilities on both floors. Camping is also available in the grounds. The bunkhouse can arrange courses in outdoor activities which are individually designed to suit groups of all ages and abilities run by their fully qualified instructors.
