Gilfach Wen Barn is a large holiday let with 7 family size bedrooms. Designed to provide comfortable accommodation for extended families or groups of friends near Brechfa Forest. The property makes an ideal base for large sociable groups who wish to explore all of South West Wales, including the Brecon Beacons National Park, Cambrian Mountains, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Gower, Ceredigion.
Due the rules and guidance published by the Welsh Government in response to Covid 19, I am not currently accepting bookings before Christmas and New Year. – I intend (if the regulations at the time permit) to open the property for bookings by extended families for Christmas and New Year. – From the end of August the Welsh Government are planning to allow upto 4 households to form an extended household and an extended household is allowed to meet up indoors, including booking holiday accommodation together.
The normal advance booking of this property is by a large group of friends or an extended family. Such groups require sole use of the property as a large holiday let, at present the Covid 19 regulations prevent me from accepting bookings from individuals and small groups who are looking for shared accommodation.
This style of property is known as a bunkhouse. – A bunkhouse is a robust holiday cottage, with comfortable furniture and some bedrooms have bunkbeds in them. I initially thought all the bookings would be from groups visiting the area to take part in activity holidays based in the Brechfa Forest area so set up a website www.brechfa-bunkhouse.com focused on those types of stay. However, growing numbers of people are looking for cost effective holiday accommodation which provides a base for exploring South West Wales and this website is designed to provide all the information needed by that type of guests.
