What is great about YHA Castleton Camping Barn?
Close to all the attractions of Castleton, such as Peveril Castle.
Plenty of walking opportunities nearby.
Vast grounds to explore.
The self-catering kitchen facilities include a wood burning stove, an electric oven, and plenty of kitchen utensils and crockery for guests to use. The heating and cooking is done via the wood burning stove, which makes the place really cosy. The stove is also great for baking – it makes lovely bread! Tea towels, bin bags, washing up liquid and soap are provided.
Dining room and lounge
The lounge and dining room are combined into one open plan social space which can seat guests comfortably. The barn has been renovated using recycled materials with timber from our own woodlands (a mix of oak, ash and sycamore). Our cosy interior has antique leather armchairs, the world’s only ‘rocking stool’ and there is a big picnic bench outside for sunny days and peaceful nights. There is no Wi-Fi and little phone signal but there are wonderful starlit skies, wildflowers, badgers, birds, and bats for entertainment.
Take the place for yourself.
For family, for friends, for running clubs, for walking groups, for hens, for stags, for you and yours.
