Afan Forest Bunkhouse, Glyncorrwg, West Glamorgan, South Wales

Sleeps 2 - 36 8 Bedrooms 40 Dining

Luxury bunkhouse in the Afan Forest sleeping up to 36 for holidays, walking and activity weekends, business groups, families and friends

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Afan Forest Bunkhouse, Glyncorrwg, West Glamorgan, South Wales, sleeps 2 - 36 in 8 bedrooms.

Sleeps up to 39 in 8 bedrooms with extra sofa beds for additional guests.

The chapel can be divided into separate apartments for smaller groups, so:

  • groups of up to 23 can take just 6 bedrooms
  • groups of up to 30 can take 7 bedrooms

This luxury holiday bunkhouse in the Afan Valley is a fantastic venue for bringing together family and friends, for yoga and other retreats, and for corporate and special interest groups for midweek stays. It's also a great base for activity weekends, and popular with mountain bikers with a wide range of cycling routes to sample from the door. And it's fantastic value!

Afan Forest Bunkhouse feels much more luxurious than a typical bunkhouse - this architect-designed chapel conversion is an absolute triumph. A fantastic light filled open plan communal space has been created, while managing to retain the beauty of many original features. This bunkhouse has plenty of green credentials too with solar panels and a ventilation system in every room.

Traditional arched windows with seating areas overlook the Afan Valley and village of Glyncorrwg, while the double height of the chapel allows for a galleried mezzanine activity room where the organ used to sit. The centrepoint of Afan Forest Bunkhouse is the enormous dining table where everyone can sit down together. This space also doubles up as a place for corporate group board meetings. A special addition is the Norwegian style freestanding wood stove to warm this expanse of living space on chillier evenings. Additional living spaces and 3 kitchens complete the picture, with separate apartments within the building if privacy is required.

Scandi style bedrooms in a corridor that used to be the chapel aisle are all about the warm tones of Wiltshire larch walls, floors and beds. The rooms and bunk bed layout is carefully designed so as to avoid compromising the full effect of the windows. There are 6 contemporary ensuites and 3 shower rooms across the bunkhouse.

Afan Forest Bunkhouse is very conveniently situated with Port Talbot and the M4 25 minutes away. It is the perfect space from which to explore waterfall country in the nearby Neath Valley and just an hour away from the Brecon Beacons. Swansea Bay and the Wales Coastal Path can be reached within 40 minutes or Gower in an hour.
