“We stayed in a youth hostel in the middle of the woods [YHA Tanners Hatch]. It was a fun place to stay where you can relax and enjoy the outdoors. I enjoyed climbing the many trees and building dens out of sticks. Because it is placed in the forest, we went on lots of adventures.”

“Apart from the occasional trip to Roseberry Topping, it took me a while to realise and discover there was a ‘great outdoors’ out there. The YHA network encouraged and allowed me to do this – the pricing, convenience and locations are amazing and accessible. I always remember a trip to YHA Rowen a hostel in a traditional Welsh farmhouse. It was a small rustic retreat with breathtaking views when we finally got up the hill.”

“I hadn’t stayed in a youth hostel since Frog Firle back in the 1980s when I walked the South Downs Way with my son and I remember getting cards with chores on it, but I recently visited YHA South Downs near Lewes and it was beautiful and so smart. I’m planning to tour all the youth hostels when I get my bus pass!”
