Due to the coronavirus pandemic our hostels are unavailable for bookings until 17th July 2020. If you are able to donate to support YHA’s charitable work at this difficult time, we’d be very grateful. Support YHA.
We are offering our hostels to the NHS, homeless organisations and public sector services. For support please email [email protected]

Dining room & lounge
There is a combined dining room and lounge which seats 24 people at tables and chairs and 8-10 on easy chairs around the fire – all kindling, logs and coal are provided. The conservatory provides additional seating for 10 overlooking the large garden ideal for spotting local wildlife.
There are six showers and six toilets. Please bring your own towels.
Central heating throughout. The hostel manager and his family and staff live on-site in a property at the rear of the hostel and share access with guests to the hostel garden. There is a separate access door for staff and therefore they do not need access to the main building.
