Afan Forest Bunkhouse, Glyncorrwg, West Glamorgan, South Wales

2 - 36 8 Bedrooms 36 Dining 36 Venue Capacity

Luxury bunkhouse venue for wedding celebrations in the Afan Forest, sleeping 36 with separate apartments and large dining area

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

This luxury bunkhouse is a brilliant choice for wedding parties looking for a venue for up to 36, close to lots of fantastic Afan Valley wedding venues. Margam Orangery is only 15 minutes, Glyn Clydach Hotel 30 minutes and a range of hotels in Swansea also within half an hour. Really convenient for friends and family travelling from different areas, just 25 minutes from the M4 and A465.

What could be more perfect than a venue that used to be a chapel in a previous life. Afan Forest Bunkhouse can host small and intimate weddings in a space that has been designed to retain original features such as arched windows, a gallery mezzanine and high ceilings, yet offers warm, comfortable accommodation with high end style features. The dining table is where the chapel aisle used to be and is a lovely area for a wedding breakfast prepared by local private caterers. After dinner coffees can be enjoyed in the lovely lounge areas dotted around the property, including a special spot next to a Norwegian wood burner. On a sunny day, perhaps host a small drinks reception on the patio outside and take in the pretty views. A separate self contained apartment is a perfect space for the happy couple to stay in.

The beauty of this bunkhouse is that it is a great choice for a longer stay. Why not suggest gathering the clans for the whole weekend to make the most of being together. Arrive on a Friday and arrange an activity for everyone to enjoy, either walking or cycling locally or some well being time in the attractive mezzanine retreat space. Maybe pop into Glyncorrwg Hall, a traditional local pub for a pint before supper and a game of pool or darts.

If you are staying at Afan Forest for a couple of nights, head to the Neath Valley and waterfall country. Particularly impressive is Sgwyd Y Eira, a waterfall that you can actually stand behind. Swansea is a popular coastal city with impressive beaches and an up and coming café culture. Discover the Brecon Beacons in an hour.
