Located close to the mountain bike trails and RSPB Nagshead, the hostel is popular with cyclists, walkers and youth groups. The building recently underwent a programme of refurbishment and now incorporates a railway theme reflecting its historical association with the steam railway, which still operates in the village.
We welcome groups of 9 to 32 people and accommodation is provided in dormitories of 2, 4, 5, 9 and 12. Prior arrangements can also be made to accommodate an additional two disable guests at the adjacent Fountain Inn. Mattresses and pillows are provided, but sleeping bags and towels should be bought with you. Alternatively, 'bed-kits' can be rented for a small fee. Full self-catering facilities exist on site, or means can be provided at the Fountain Inn.
Accommodation is £13 per person, per night. Central heating and double glazing throughout make this an ideal base at any time of year and, unlike many hostels, the cost is fully inclusive; there are no electricity meters and showers are free. Please be aware that we do not take one-night bookings on Fridays or Saturdays and sole occupancy cannot be guaranteed for groups of less than 22 people (facilities are shared, but you wouldn't be sharing a dormitory).
