The Journey: spring 19

Heritage hostels

The joy on their faces is infectious. This merry group is shown at the official opening of Bellever Hostel – now known as YHA Dartmoor – on 10th June 1934. Perfect kilt weather, it seems. Opened in the same year were two other much-loved properties: YHA Hartington Hall and YHA Borrowdale. Throughout 2019, the staff at YHA Borrowdale are asking for your recollections of past visits, so if you have any colourful stories of time spent at the Lake District hostel – or any of our early properties, not least YHA Dartmoor – please email them to [email protected].
