The best cheap large group accommodation

Whether you want to get away with family over the summer holidays or you are looking for the ideal New Year location to see off 2022 with friends, an exclusive stay in a YHA hostel is an extremely cost-effective way to accommodate large groups.

So what makes exclusive hire of a YHA hostel so perfect for large group accommodation?

How to find cheap holiday accommodation

Booking a whole YHA hostel in England or Wales makes great economic sense when you consider that exclusive hire can work out as little as £7.50 per person per night, in a property that sleeps up to 40 people. And those are by no means our largest hostels.

What’s more, you can choose from over 100 YHA locations, many of which place you right in the heart of some of the most spectacular scenery in England and Wales, with doorstep access to stunning countryside.

And of course, unlike many budget travel hotels, no two YHA hostels are the same. So, take your pick from modern eco-centres or small rural cottages, right through to large county mansions, each with its own individual quirks and style.

Whichever location you choose, you can expect a warm welcome and helpful essentials such as bed linen (you just need to bring your own towels). Most of our exclusive hire properties now offer free Wi-Fi too.

Stag do and hen do accommodation in the UK

If you have been given the unenviable task of trying to plan a hen do or stag do in the UK that doesn’t break the bank, then the exclusive hire of a YHA hostel offers access to a huge range of outdoor activities perfect for gathering together with friends, old and new.

You might choose to spend the day climbing, hiking, water skiing or sailing (amongst hundreds of other ideas) before heading back to your very own space, complete with large lounges and plenty of comfortable seating to relax into.

Self-catering is also an easy option if you prefer to stay in and cook in a YHA hostel. All our exclusive hire properties come with excellent kitchen facilities plus all the crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils you’ll need.

We’ve even got wine glasses and other essentials such as corkscrews – unless, of course, you’re just bringing Prosecco!

YHA Exclusive Hire: best family holiday destinations?

With a choice of over 100 locations in England and Wales, exclusive hire of a YHA hostel can offer some of the best holiday destinations for families, in popular areas such as the Lake District, Snowdonia,and East Anglia.

Multi-generational breaks continue to grow in popularity in the UK, as more and more extended families from several different generations, chose to holiday together under one roof.

You might also fancy clubbing together with another family and sharing the cost of the property of your dreams, with acres of land for the kids to run wild.

Extra large group accommodation for 50 or more people

If your planned get-together is growing in momentum and you need somewhere really big, then YHA has got you covered.

Or perhaps your group all just prefer to have their own room? Either way, you might like to know that we offer some of the largest holiday rental accommodation in the UK, with many properties sleeping in excess of 50 people. And many sleeping even more than that!

Big group accommodation which welcomes pets

For many lovers of the great outdoors, it’s really not a breakaway unless your dogs can come too. After all, our hostels offer some of the best dog walking opportunities right from your doorstep, so it would be a shame to leave them out. This is why the majority of YHA hostels available for exclusive hire now also accept dogs.

In fact, for just £30 per dog, you can bring up to 4 dogs to our properties, happy in the knowledge that they too will receive a warm YHA welcome.
