News & Offers
Hudscales Barn, part of the Lakeland camping barn network
Hudscales Barn is one of 17 camping barns in the Independent Hostels network. The camping barns were set up by the Youth Hostel Association 20 years ago to provide simple accommodation in rural areas for walkers and cyclists. The Lakeland barn network was formed 10 years ago by a group of Lake District camping barns who left the YHA network. The YHA have now withdrawn their support for nearly all camping barns and the most complete record of EX-YHA camping barns is available here on the Independent Hostel Guide website.
