About Hendre Isaf Bunkhouse

A Snowdonia stay in a 400-year-old restored farm building with lots of communal space for group activities.

A Grade II listed, 400 year old 18-sleeper bunkhouse, Hendre Isaf was once a working farm building but now caters for large groups keen to explore Snowdonia National Park. With ample facilities and plenty of room for large communal meals, the bunkhouse offers the ideal environment in which to spend quality time with friends and family. 

Located in the heart of Snowdonia, just a 30-minute drive from the start of the Watkin Path at Hafod y Llan in Nantgwynant which leads directly to Snowdon, the tallest mountain in Wales. 

Set on the stunning 8,000 hectare Ysbyty Estate, the bunkhouse is just six miles from Betws-y-Coed. This thriving town is surrounded by waterfalls, rivers and wooded valleys and makes for an excellent lunch spot after a morning spent exploring the national park.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
