Last minute Discounts on Bunkhouse and Slef Catering Cottages in Snowdonia

Late Bunkrooms - Cut Price Accommodation For Groups

Here you can pick up last minute discounts on any of our bunkhouses (Bryn Engan Cottage or Moelwyn Cottage) or Bryn Engan Farmhouse.

These discounts are made available as a result of cancelled bookings or course relocation so we are not able to offer these deals on any other dates than the ones you see on this page and no other discounts or deals apply.
The prices are for sole use of the building so obviously if your group is big enough to fill all the beds, it makes more sense.

 

Check out the deals below and give us a call on 01690 720214 to book. It's first come first served, so don't hang about.
