Independent youth hostel in Scarborough

Once a 17th century water mill, set on a quiet riverside, two miles north of the town and 15 minutes' walk from Scalby Mills and the North Bay. Scarborough Youth Hostel provides quality accommodation for groups: school, college, university, sports and friends/family groups who wish to enjoy, explore, or simply unwind on the beautiful North Yorkshire coast. Two long sandy beaches, miles of rugged coastline, and one of the UK's largest areas of forest and moorland, make Scarborough the perfect base for activity breaks with excellent walking, cycling, surfing and sailing. There is plenty for those interested in birds, wildlife, history, geology and the seashore. Scarborough regularly hosts live concerts and festivals, TT racing, surf competitions and theatre productions. Use the well equipped kitchen to prepare your own meals. Sole use available for large groups. School/group packages: breakfast, packed lunch & evening meals as required with additional rooms available.

This accommodation is featured on our map of Yorkshire and Lancashire and here is its own website.
