“The bell tent at YHA Stratford-upon-Avon was perfect for our first family break with our new puppy. Both Buddy and the boys loved exploring the grounds and running around in the neighbouring field. It was also the perfect location for exploring the local area and enjoying a boat ride on the River Avon.”


“I’m a Canadian and I recently took my first trip to the Lake District, staying at YHA Coniston Holly How. We climbed through the fog to the top of the Old Man of Coniston and we were greeted with a cloud inversion, the giant peaks of Lakeland sprouting through. It was a beautiful moment and one I’ll never forget. It’s always like this in the Lakes right?”

“The remote woodland setting of YHA Tanners Hatch was the perfect location for den building and putting smiles on children’s (and adults’) faces!  We enjoyed some cycling on the Surrey Downs, followed by a cosy roaring fire (and a cheeky whiskey). Tanners Hatch is my new favourite YHA!”
