Independent Youth Hostel in the Cheviots Northumberland

Wooler Youth Hostel & Shepherd's Huts are set in their own spacious grounds on the edge of the town. The hostel has newly refurbished en suite bedrooms, a huge dining and common room, drying facilities, a large self-catering kitchen & Shepherd's Hut sleeping cabins, making it great for groups & families. There is also a good value restaurant, on site car parking and secure cycle storage. The hostel sleeps up to 51 people. There are en suite rooms sleeping 2,4 and 6 people and rooms with shared bathrooms sleeping 4 and 8 people. There are four Shepherd's Huts, three sleeping 2 people and one sleeping 3 people with a double bed and single bed.

Wooler has inns, grocery stores and specialist shops and is an ideal base for exploring the Northumberland National Park, the Cheviot Hills (rich in archaeological sites), local castles and fine sandy beaches of the Northumbrian coastline. For walkers there is the long distance St Cuthbert's Way and many shorter walks. For cyclists there are the Wooler cycle hub routes, Pennine Cycleway, the Sandstone Way and many quiet lanes to explore. Nearby there are bridleways perfect for mountain-biking, some of the best bouldering in the UK, riding centres and even a gliding school. Bird watchers can take a boat trip to the Farne Islands and visit the Cheviot Hills. Why not speak to the warden about kayaking/canoeing in the area or book onto one of his guided walks in the area?
