Yealand Old School, has undergone major refurbishment and now boasts a brand new kitchen, en suite bathrooms for the 3 private rooms and new beds throughout.
What better a reason do you need to visit this former Quaker school in ‘1652 country’. As well as the Quaker history there’s plenty of great walking and cycling in the local area. The hostel is also often used by long distance cyclists on the LEJOG route and NCN 6 which runs from London to the Lake District.
