A top tier bunkhouse promoting sustainability and great value! Situated not far from Alston in the Pennines this secluded hostel is ideal for that break you’ve been desperate for.

Just on look into the wildflower meadow and you know you’re on to a winner. Oodles of trails to get lost down right from the bunkhouse, Isaacs Tea Trail being particularly popular. Or if you’re more a two wheels than two boots you’ll be happy to know that there is lockable bike storage. Or just hire a bike if you’d  prefer to travel light. We could go on about the wonderful atmosphere but you’ll just have to see for yourself…

Created to keep it’s environmental footprint to a minimum, the whole site has a private spring water supply and treatment plant, the bunkhouse has superb insulation to keep it toastie warm all year round and the area of Alston is part of a major conservation area.

Haggs Bank Bunkhouse is proud of its commitment to environmentally sustainable tourism. Wherever possible we have incorporated features to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum. The renovation has introduced excellent insulation, A-rated appliances, a UV spring water supply, grey water for flushing toilets and LED lighting. We use recycled toilet paper, natural cleaning products and purchase fairtrade tea, coffee and sugar. Our wastewater is treated to a very high standard before being discharged into the River Nent under an environmental permit.  Outside we have planted many native trees  and our wildflower meadow is thriving under our gentle management.
