Group Accommodation – Gilfach Wen Barn

Gilfach Wen Barn is a large holiday let with 7 family size bedrooms and space for camping.  Designed to provide comfortable accommodation for extended families or groups of friends visiting Brechfa Forest,  South West Wales. 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.


COVID – 19  Update.

At present all of Wales is in Tier 4,   and all tourism businesses have to close.   I have been making plans to reopen in stages in 2021 based on the proposed  Welsh Government defined Tier system.  As this is different to the English Tier system I have provided more information on my plans on a special Covid-19 page.     I am sure that the day will come again in 2021 when we can all return to a normal life,  until then stay safe.   In the meantime I am working on my website to provide more information for guests on what there is to do in the area.



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 and short breaks based in the Brechfa Forest  and Llanllwni Mountain area so set up a website  focused on the detailed information for walkers,  runners,  cyclists and horse riders.

However,   growing numbers of people are looking for cost effective holiday accommodation which provides a base for extended families and groups of friends exploring South West Wales.   This website is designed to provide all the information needed by both type of guests.
