YHA Osmotherley is an ideal base for discovering the very best of what North Yorkshire has to offer. Located in the beautiful North York Moors National Park it is surrounded by trails for walking and cycling with outstanding views over the moors and sales. The hostel is close to the A19 dual carriageway, making it extremely easy to access, yet is set in a beautiful and secluded location.

From the doorstep lies a network of footpaths including the Cleveland Way, Coast to Coast and the start of the Lyke Wake Walk. A 10 minute walk leads you to Cod Beck Reservoir, a local beauty spot. For cyclists, YHA Osmotherley is adjacent to Route 65 of the National Cycle Network which links to many cycle paths for all abilities. For those who enjoy the outdoors, this really is the place to be.

The historic village of Osmotherley is only a 10 minute walk away and offers three excellent pubs as well as shops and cafes. Within six miles there is the traditional market town of Northallerton with an array of shops and cafes, as well as activities like golf, swimming and pony riding. Local attractions include The World of James Herriot, Mount Grace Priory, the White Horse, Lightwater Valley, Rievaulx Abbey and many more. The beach at Saltburn by the Sea is only 35 minutes away by car with the historic city of York just 45 minutes away.

A converted linen mill, YHA Osmotherley has recently undergone major refurbishment and is now 4 star VisitEngland accommodation.
