The Wye Valley Bunkhouse is found in the picturesque village of Glasbury, beside the River Wye at the foot of the Black Mountains. Sleeping up to 18 guests, the accommodation is designed to be the perfect base from which big groups can discover this idyllic part of Wales. Guests can step out from the doorstep and paddle down the famous river with the neighbouring canoe company, explore the incredible landscapes of the Wye Valley or spend hours wondering around Hay-on-Wye’s many bookshops
The property is converted from a Grade II listed Welsh Baptist Chapel. It boasts a clean and modern design with a playful twist, such as the unique spiral slide (much better than taking the stairs!). The open plan layout is ideal for socialising and enormous chapel windows flood the space with natural light. The authentic period features are married to contemporary furnishings and fittings. Eco-conscious holidaymakers will be pleased to know it was designed with the environment in mind, with a wood pellet boiler and rainwater collection system.
At the heart of the home is the large lounge, with a huge L-shaped sofa in front of a wood-burning stove. On the other side of this room is the kitchen and dining area with a 12ft long table, where the whole group can share meals and plan their next adventure together. The kitchen is small but well-equipped, ideal for rustling up breakfast or a light snack.
Guests can enjoy some competitive fun with a game of table tennis, pool or cornhole, or grab some popcorn and settle in for a movie night. The 12 bunk beds are situated on the top floor. These are no cheap hostel bunks though, but premium beds with comfy mattresses, crisp linen and fluffy duvets. Other sleeping arrangements come in a separate double room on the top floor and an additional bedroom with four singles downstairs. There are three modern bathrooms across the home with a toilet and shower.
The accommodation really couldn’t be better located. One of the best ways to explore the area is from the water, and Wye Valley Canoes is right next to the house. They offer half and full-day trips down the river, as well as overnight camping expeditions. The Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains are both within easy reach, with countless paths and trails for walking and cycling, where you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views.
Worked up an appetite from all that adventuring? You'll find everything from gourmet restaurants to cosy pubs, cafes and tea shops nearby. And finally, Hay-on-Wye is just three miles away from the house, renowned for its many wonderful bookshops (over 40 of them!), fantastic eateries and weekly market.
