Self catering bunkhouses & hostels
hostels with campsite

Nearly a quarter of our hostels offer camping along side their hostel, bunkhouse or camping barn accommodation. Some are located on large campsites whilst others might have space for a tent or two in the garden. This map shows all the hostels with campsites across England, Scotland and Wales. Adding a few tents is a great way of staying in the location you really want with a larger group than the hostel or bunkhouse can accommodate. Alternatively perhaps some of your group prefer to sleep in the fresh air whilst others fancy a proper bed? What ever the reason, with plenty of different options in locations ranging from Jersey to the Orkneys there is bound to be a hostel with camping option to suit your group.

Not only do Independent Hostels provide fantastic low cost hostel accommodation for families, groups and individuals but we also have some fantastic hostels with  camping available for pitching your tent or parking your caravan or caravan. So it is now even easier for you and your group, whatever it’s composition, to get out and explore what the British great outdoors has to offer. This page shows all the hostels with campsites in the Independent Hostel Guide.

Nearly  a quarter of the hostels in the Independent Hostel Guide also provide camping in one form or another.  Staying in one of our hostels with camping is a great way of holidaying with a larger group or a group with a variety of sleeping requirements.  If the hostel itself isn’t quite big enough then add a few tents outside and you can all fit no problem.  Alternatively if you have some members of your group who don’t camp whilst others love sleeping in the fresh air then looking for a hostel with camping is also a great solution.  There are hostels with camping across the UK  so you can choose pretty much any location from Jersey to Orkney!  Some of our hostels are located on or next to large campsites where you will find a variety of pitches for tents, caravans and camper-vans. These are eminently flexible for your group.  Others will accommodate a smaller number of tents in the garden.  We also have a number of hostels which provide Glamping in ready pitched tent or eco pod type accommodation. 

Often the campsites have separate washing and toilet facilities although occasionally these may be shared with the hostel or bunkhouse.  With such a variety of options and locations to choose from there is bound to be a hostel and camping combination to suit your group.
