Camping in Snowdonia

Willie's Barn: A Bunkhouse Accommodation in Snowdonia North Wales

Willie's Barn is one of our original accommodations......now with 100% less cows.

Willie's Barn takes it's name from Taid ('Grandfather' in Welsh), William Williams. It was shared accommodation then and still is now. (Although these days you'll be sharing tea with the other humans in your party...and not with the cattle.)

Please be aware that WE DO NOT ACCOMMODATE DOGS at Gwern Gof Isaf at this time. We apologise for any inconvenience.


  • Willie's Barn £15 per person per night, group minimum of seven guests (regardless of age), minimum 2 night stay (Includes 1 shower token per guest per night.)

Please note, that this fee is per bed and therefore no discounts for age can be offered.
