That’s how our reviewer described this Peak District hostel. A former well-loved YHA hostel, Youlgreave Hostel is now under private ownership and has undergone an extensive contemporary upgrade. (En suites for every room is the next project). So why did this gem of a hostel deserve such a perfect rating?
Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts: It’s situated in the heart of the Peak District with fabulous walking and cycling from the doorstep and climbing nearby.
Perfect for families: All the attractions of the Peak District including Alton Towers, Chatsworth House and The Heights of Abraham are a short drive away
Perfect for wild swimmers: the River Bradford (ranked no 1 in The Best Paddling and Swimming spots in the Peak District) is just 400m from the doorstep. Hathersage and Matlock Bath lidos are both a short drive away.
Perfect if you want a rest from cooking: Although there is a self catering kitchen, you can take time out from chores and treat yourself to breakfast or lunch at the on-site cafe, the hub of the hostel. (Cafe open Weds – Sun 9am -2pm). For evening meals it’s a short stroll to the village pub which serves home cooked meals every night except Tuesdays.
Perfect for the wallet: Prices start from £23pp per night (based on 6 friends sharing a room).
