English group accommodation : Self catering group hostel in the Tendring Peninsula


1912 Centre, Cow Lane, Off Kings Quay Street, Harwich CO12 3ES

The 1912 Centre is the former town Fire Station situated within the heart of the Harwich Conservation area and just 50m from the sandy beach and promenade. Harwich owes much of its charm to its medieval origins, the grid pattern on which the original 13th century town was built still survives and there are over 200 listed buildings within half a square mile. The centrally heated hostel is laid out around the old engine garage, which now forms the central dining and recreational area. The upper floor has access to four cabin style sleeping areas, whilst additional beds are available on the ground floor allowing access for the disabled. All cabins have bunk beds. Facilities include a fully equipped kitchen, showers & drying room. Visitors can bring their own sleeping bags, or can hire duvets from the Centre. The Centre is compact and easily managed, groups are expected to undertake certain domestic duties during their stay, and are responsible for leaving the Centre in a clean and tidy condition.

This accommodation is featured on our map of South of England and South East England and here is its own website.
