Now owned by a local farming family this hostel is a former 17th century inn with wooden beams and a cosy open fire. It continues to offer friendly accommodation as part of the YHA and IHUK networks in the centre of the Edmundbyers. A self-catering kitchen is available and an in-house bar, serving locally brewed beer as well as a full range of drinks. Enjoy Friday Free Food Night. Breakfast can be ordered in advance, as can other meals. There are three pubs close by, all serving food, just ask for a recommendation. Edmundbyers lies in moorland, close to the Northumberland and County Durham boundary, with fine views over Edmundbyers and Muggleswick Commons, two miles from Derwent Reservoir, where sailing and fishing are available and within an AONB. Ideal for walking holidays and there are prehistoric remains to explore. On the Coast to Coast cycle route or for a day out you could visit Hadrian's Wall or the Beamish outdoor museum. The hostel has a campsite within a walled garden, with mature trees and stunning views. Roadside and off-road parking is available.

Dog friendly accommodation in the Durham Dales

October 27th 2020

Home of the world renowned Baa. Edmundbyers YHA offers a comfortable hostel housed inside a former 17th century inn.

Here at Edmundbyers we love dogs and their owners. Well behaved dogs are always welcome whether camping or staying in the hostel or just visiting the Baa. There is camping with space for a campfire. Perfect for a mid afternoon snooze while waiting for a pot of stew. Being on the North end of the Pennines you can rest easy that you’ll have enough outdoors to conquer. The three local pubs also welcome dogs although some restrictions may apply.
