In 2017, the YHA abandoned many of their more remote and simple accommodations.
Alstonefield Camping Barnis located at Gateham Grange in the Peak District. It had been part of the YHA’s network of camping barns for 17 years. Located on a working farm on the Staffordshire / Derbyshire border, the barn provides simple accommodation for walkers and cyclists close to Dovedale and the Manifold Valley.
The YHA declared that many camping barns and simple hostels were to be excluded from their network. Alstonefield camping barn was included. All camping barns and rural hostels ceased to be part of the YHA network in February 2017. Not to be discouraged, the owners made the decision to continue to operate. As their passion was to provide accommodation to all who seeking adventure in the great outdoors. Ever since, Alstonefield Camping Barn have continued to welcome families, Duke of Edinburgh participants, walkers, cyclists, schools and scout groups.
