The adjoining cottage is also available as a self contained family unit with a double bed and three singles bunks. Meals are available at the hostel with advanced booking.

News & Offers from Earby Hostel

Travellers, Revolutionaries and…You?

January 21st 2024

We thought we would let you in on a little secret about a very special place. 

Earby Hostel is a 21 bed hostel in Lancashire located near the Yorkshire Dales. But it is so much more than that! Earby Hostel has a long history as a haven for socialists since the 1920s. This is thanks to Katharine Glasier who was a socialist politician, journalist, novelist and all round badass. After her death, she insisted the house was turned into a hostel so that socialists, working class folk and travellers could continue to enjoy her wonderful cottage and the surrounding area.
To this day, we welcome so many different visitors from a variety of backgrounds. And we are keen to continue Katharine’s message of getting young people inspired and connected to nature.
