Come for “a tonic”. Gin optional. 😉

Relax in the blissful summer warmth with a refreshing glass of tonic.. and a kick of gin! 😉 

Ninebanks Youth Hostel was described as “a tonic” by a guest last weekend.  He didn’t have a glass in his hand so it must have been the relaxed atmosphere, the comfort, the sunshine and the view across the valley.  28 beds in ensuite bedrooms, great space to mingle in, and all in a glorious location tucked in the North Pennines, handy for Hadrian’s Wall.
