Our Bunkhouse in North Wales, is just outside the village of Waunfawr and only a 5 minute drive from Mount Snowdon and the footpaths of Snowdon Ranger and Rhyd Ddu.

We are ideally situated for most outdoor activities. Whether you wish to cycle, ramble, rock climb or kayak it’s all close on hand and if the weather happens to interrupt your plans don’t be put off as the area teams with history & culture (from Princes and Castles with myths of old to Artists and Poets capturing both new and old) and of course the scenery never changes just because of a little rain!

Pentre Bach Bunkhouse


We converted our stone barn in 2001 to provide self catering accommodation for outdoor enthusiasts into an alpine style bunkhouse and with a “Real Ale” pub only a 10 minute walk from the bunkhouse what more could you wish for?

The bunkhouse is split over two floors; the ground floor has a cooking area (with gas burners, microwaves, fridge and freezer, all pots/pans cutlery provided), seating and a dining area.

The second floor is used for sleeping and can accommodate up to 16 on mattresses on five sleeping platforms 2(5)s 1(4) and 2 (1)s. Bed linen and pillow case provided you just need your sleeping bag.

Toilets with washing facilities, showers and a drying room are provided in separate blocks across the yard.

Bikes can be stored securely under a shelter next to the bunkhouse plus we are happy to provide water for bike cleaning.

Dogs are welcomed but owners must check that fellow guests are happy with this and they must sleep downstairs (otherwise they will need to sleep in owners vehicles).

Activity Instructors available to run courses from introductory through to skill improver in Kayaking / Canoeing / Sea Kayaking, Rock climbing and hill walking.
