Sitting room at Dan Y Gyrn bunkhouse on the Beacons Way

Fourth stage of the Beacons Way. Dan Y Gyrn Bunkhouse provides self catering accommodation for groups less then 1km from the route, at the base of Pen-Y-Fan Mountain. Plan your route well and look out for rights of way that to cross the river ( Afon Tarell ). Centrally located near the village of Libanus you can enjoy panoramic views of the Beacons from this spacious, modern and fully-equipped bunkhouse.

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.
