What we have to offer

Please note: All prices are based on hiring the whole place per night.

This small and almost perfectly formed traditional country Youth Hostel is housed in the former village Co-Op - in fact, it still retains many of its unique original features. Set in the centre of picturesque Youlgrave village (note the all-important spelling difference!) and located in stunning White Peak countryside, this hostel is a great base for walkers, cyclists and sightseers alike.

The distinctive building overlooks the limestone dales around the River Bradford and has mountain biking, rock climbing and watersports easily within reach. Or if you're a history buff, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House offer a fantastic day out for all the family. With everything you need to explore the Derbyshire Dales, this homely hostel has a large lounge to chill out in and picnic tables outside to enjoy the countryside.

We have a self-catering kitchen which contains two hobs, two ovens, a grill, one microwave oven, two fridge freezers and one fridge. A range of kitchen utensils, cookware, crockery and cutlery is provided for 40 people. Tea towels, washing up liquid and kitchen roll are also provided.

There are 42 beds spread over 9 rooms: 1 x 2 beds, 5 x 4 beds, 2 x 6 beds and 1 x 8 beds. All bedding is provided.

We only have one parking space at the hostel, which can be found in front of the basement windows at the front of the building. Other cars should be parked at Moor Lane Car Park at the western end of the village (about five minutes' walk from the hostel). Please note that parking is not permitted down the driveway to the right of the hostel (neighbours’ access to property), nor on any white line (designated pavement) in the village.

Other facilities

Dining Room/Lounge
A large lounge area is available with seating for everyone on comfy leather sofas and wooden chairs. The lounge has a television and stereo to relax with.

Each bedroom has a sink and mirror. There are 7 toilets and 5 showers in individual washrooms. There's also a combined boot room and drying room. Please bring your own towels and toiletries.

There's a front garden with picnic tables so (weather being well) you can enjoy the countryside views.

Please note - we're only available for early check in. This property is suitable for children under the age of three years.
