YHA Grinton Lodge is surrounded by stunning scenery and exceptional views of the Yorkshire Dales.
For walking holidays there are lots of routes throughout the Yorkshire Dales National Park for varying abilities and for anyone doing the Coast to Coast walk, YHA Grinton Lodge makes for a well-deserved stop-off point.
