Formerly Steps Bridge Youth Hostel on Dartmoor, Devon.


Blytheswood Hostel, Steps Bridge, Dunsford, Devon, EX6 7EQ

Blytheswood is set in secluded, native woodland on the eastern edge of the National Park. Originally a WW1 hut, the cabin has been a hostel since the 1930s. Friendly and peaceful, with a homely living room, wood burner, self-catering kitchen, picnic tables, barbecue and fire pit. Walk straight from the door through the woods to Heltor and Blackingstone Rock, or along the river to Fingle Bridge and Castle Drogo. Cross the stepping stones to Dunsford village or visit nearby Moretonhampstead and Chagford for supplies, cream teas, crafts and pubs. We’re an ideal base from which to explore open moorland, the cathedral city of Exeter, and the beaches of South Devon. We’re on the Land’s End to John O’Groats cycling route and Steps Bridge is an access point to the River Teign. Favoured by walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers, the surrounding National Trust woodland and nature reserve are rich in wild flowers, butterflies and birds, and home to badgers, deer and otters. Staying in the woods provides the perfect opportunity for guests to find their own pace of life.
