Bunkhouse – Pentre Bach


From the 25th July we will be able to offer camping and bunkhouse accommodation, using shared facilities.

From Saturday 22nd August four households will be able to join together in an extended household in Wales and stay overnight without social distancing.

Social distancing in Wales is still 2m. You will be asked for contact details of everyone staying to aid Test/Trace/Protect

Acquiring the Industry Standard mark means that your business has followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, has a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.


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

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.
