Spring guide

Sleeping under the stars this spring


At last spring is here, bringing colour back into our lives. With the arrival of brighter mornings, sleeping under the stars is back on the menu across the UK. Here at YHA, we offer family friendly, unique overnights in some of the most amazing places all over England and Wales. Keep the sense of adventure, the feeling of being closer to nature but add a few more home comforts. Below is a list of some of our fantastic Camping & Cabin options to try out this spring.



Like traditional camping but don’t like roughing it? These Landpods are the perfect alternative for sleeping under the stars. The Landpods sleep up to four people, on two double mattresses and a single futon mattress, which doubles up as the seating area. With LED lighting, these cosy pods include all beds and bedding. There is a bench and BBQ firepit outside so, make the most of the great outdoors and dine al fresco. There is no heating in our Landpods so make sure to wrap up warm- even in spring!

Like the idea of camping but want to shelter under something more substantial than fabric? Try a night in one of our camping barns. These “stone tents” offer basic accommodation with a communal area to relax and rest ready for the day ahead. Our camping barns have running water, showers and toilets and cooking facilities so you can cook up a delicious feast for you and your loved ones and freshen up after a day’s adventure. You won’t need your sleeping bag, as we provide all cosy bedding and make the beds. You might want to bring warm clothes, a torch and walking boots as the camping barns are positioned in some very rural places!

With all our Camping & Cabin options, all guests have full access to all of the hostel facilities, including the self-catering kitchen and bathrooms, so you can cook delicious meals, or freshen up after your night sleeping under the stars. Book your springtime glamping getaway today.
