Earlier this year The Old School Bunkhouse made some accommodation renovations based on feedback from recent visits from larger groups including schools, cadets and the army.
The Bunkhouse always receives great reviews from groups staying. They love the location, facilities and amount of things to do nearby in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. However, groups such as schools, cadets and the army mentioned that it would be ideal for leaders/teachers to have their own sleeping space. With this feedback The old School Bunkhouse have made some accommodation improvements to meet these needs. Now, rather than five rooms sleeping 30 people, they now have six rooms sleeping 28 people. Four rooms sleep six in each and two rooms sleeping two in each.

Old School. NOUN: Used, usually approvingly, to refer to someone or something that is old-fashioned or traditional. e.g. ‘he was one of the old school of English gentlemen’
Offering group accommodation in six-bed bunk rooms, (there is a lounge, drying room, 4 shower rooms, a well equipped kitchen / dining room with ‘industrial’ appliances); the abundance of vigorous adventure activities all set in the rugged no-nonsense North Yorkshire landscape indicate a similarly traditional approach to hostelling.
