YHA Thurlby is a 15th century former village forge with a large lawned garden. It is located in a peaceful spot in the centre of an unspoilt Lincolnshire village. The former forge is full of character and has Victorian additions to the building. The Fens are natural cycling country and Rutland Water, an important area for bird life, offers a great choice of watersports and walks – perfect for activity breaks and walking and cycling holidays. Visit Belvoir Castle, Burghley House and nearby market towns for a day out exploring.
