Ninebanks Youth Hostel now offers four self-contained accommodation units, new terraces and a firepit at the front for outside socialising, and every room is en suite*
Ninebanks Youth Hostel is offering new separate wings in the main building, which alongside the chalet rooms give a choice of four self-contained units on site. “Immaculately clean….warm welcome…. quiet spot that is great for walking, cycling and unwinding” was our first review of 2021. Every room now is now en suite (*one shower room is two steps away across a landing). It’s peaceful here in the North Pennines. Hope to see you soon.
Isaac’s Tea Trail ultra marathon
March 10th 2021
Ninebanks Youth Hostel in Northumberland is right on Isaac’s Tea Trail, a scenic 36 mile circular route. And now, thanks to Greener Miles Running, you can run the Trail in an ultra marathon event.
Isaac’s Tea Trail, a delightful route in the North Pennines, is steadily growing in popularity. Here at Ninebanks Youth Hostel we’re pleased to be partnering Greener Miles Running, whose environmental ethos so closely matches our own. So if you are fit enough and don’t have the three days or so it usually takes, then how about the ultra marathon event on 7th August? You’ll find it at https://greenermilesrunning.co.uk/isaac-tea-trail-running-race We’ll be manning a checkpoint at the hostel, and there’s still some availability for staying over in the hostel and chalet.
Opening soon – Ninebanks Youth Hostel and Chalet
February 25th 2021
From 12th April we plan to welcome guests back to Ninebanks. We will begin by opening the chalet and wings, you will be able to book 1 or 2 rooms for a single household booking.
Alongside our self-contained rooms in the chalet, we’ll be offering our wings which are self-contained units within the main hostel building. Both have their own entrance, outdoor space and sitting/dining room with a kitchenette. You can choose Orchard House with one bedroom that sleeps up to four or Mineshop with two bedrooms, including one double, for up to six people, all rooms with ensuite/private shower room and a sitting room/dining room. Families can enjoy the hostel and feel safe in their own space. We then expect to be able to open the hostel for individual rooms and sole use groups after the 21st of June.
See you soon, Team Ninebanks
