Plasnewydd Bunkhouse
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Stayed in April as part of a group of seven, there was another group of about six or seven at the bunkhouse (as was expected) but there were several separate bedrooms so we could still get a sense of privacy. The place was clean, the owners friendly, the location convenient for our needs and this was overall a very good place to stay.

There were however a few minor issues that we felt would, if addressed, have improved our experience. There was no toilet paper in the ladies' loos, when we asked at the farmhouse we were told that they didn't provide toilet paper as it was "self-catering" - I was surprised by this as every other bunkhouse I've stayed in (5+ in various places) has always provided it, even ones that were outwardly much less pleasant places than this one. There was also no means of drying ones' hands in the gents' loos - no dryer and no towells in the towell dispenser. Thirdly, there were no curtains nor blinds on the windows in the bedrooms, which a couple of us found made it difficult to sleep, especially after the sun had risen. Finally, the nature of the rubbish/recycling arrangements was very unclear - there was a single bin provided in the kitchen and lots of bin bags, but nothing for recycling and nowhere to empty the bin once it was filled. Some instructions, or making the provision more obvious, would have been handy as having 12+ people staying meant the bin quickly filled, and we had a lot of glass and cans that should have been recycled.

we were a group of 19 all family members. The bunkhouse is very big and spacious and clean and the views from one of the bedrooms is amazing.
The owners were very help they took our home shopping delivery in and put it away for us that's what you call service! definitely would recommend this bunkhouse to friends and family.

Reviewed 7 July 2010

Stayed here as part of a team build. There were 16 of us split in the two dormitories available. They can sleep up to 23. A warm welcome was given to us by the family that run the accommodation and nothing was too much trouble. It was lovely and clean and spacious with a well equipped kitchen, however in the town of Llanidloes there are several eateries if you so choose.
You don't have to book the whole of the Bunkhouse, they take bookings from individuals as well as groups. It is ideal for ramblers as The Bunkhouse is situated directly on the Glyndwr Way and The Source of the Severn is close by. There are facilities for cycling, golfing and clay pigeon shooting and sailing at Clywedog dam. There is also an outdoor pursuits centre nearby.
I enjoyed a wonderul night's sleep as it was so peaceful and tranquil. I am seriously considering returning for a weekend later on this summer.
