Y Byncws / the bunkhouse
On the site there is a Grade II listed former school built in 1876 with a distinctive bell tower and Tudor arched windows. The school (Ysgol Islaw’r dref) served a once thriving farming community. It has been a bunkhouse since the school closed and will re-open as a bunkhouse in the future but it is currently undergoing complete refurbishment with a view to opening in 2020.
