Following the latest Welsh Government guidance, we've reopened all our holiday accommodation for up to six guests or two households. Children under 11 are not included in the total. This will be reviewed following further announcements.

In Northern Ireland, we've reopened all our holiday accommodation for two households or the rule of six. This will be reviewed following further announcements.

Sleeping 4 to 48 people, we have bothies, bunkhouses, camping barns and bunk barns for all group types, including families, friends, work colleagues and education groups.

What is a bothy?

Bothies offer stripped back accommodation in remote locations. Close to walking trails and national parks, they’re a great option for walkers and people who want to get away from it all. Simple brick or stone structures, bothies offer a 'camping with walls' experience. There's usually no electricity and water often comes from handpumps. All of our bothies are self-clean and do not include caretaking.

What is a bunkhouse?

For those that want to enjoy the great outdoors without having to give up all the comforts of home, our bunkhouses provide simple, self-catering accommodation for large groups. Set in beautiful locations, they sleep between 6 and 48 people. Most bunkhouses have kitchens, spacious living and dining areas, dormitories with bunk-beds, showers, electricity and heating.
