If your family does not have the chance to meet often, what could be nicer than a reunion in an extra large holiday cottage on holiday or for a long weekend to celebrate a special occasion? Brechfa is easily reached via Motorway or A roads from England and ferry from Ireland.
The downstairs bedroom and shower room at Brechfa Bunkhouse is ideal for any members of the family who are not as agile as they used to be. The large kitchen and dining area enable all the family to join together for meals. The lounge gives comfortable space for evenings in talking around the fire while there is plenty of outdoor space for younger members to let off steam.
In the five years since Brechfa Bunkhouse opened I have had many opportunities to chat to children staying here about what they most enjoyed about their stay, and watched their parents struggle to fit all the games and toys into the car for the return journey. Gradually a set of activity suggestions has been developed to help parents who have booked the property for a week provide low cost activities for all weathers without struggling to fit everything into the car.

Baking box (cup cakes and pizza) with instructions. This is provided as standard for week long bookings, for shorter breaks please request in advance so that ingredients can be supplied fresh.
