“After losing my mum to cancer, I needed a challenge to help me move forward – what better than to climb all 214 Lake District fells? My first ‘Wainwright weekend’ at YHA Buttermere reminded me just how empowering it is to lose yourself in nature, and in the company of the hills I experienced great peace.” Read more here.

“We went to YHA Brighton and stayed in bunk beds. We had all our family in the same room, and it was right next to the beach. The waves were really big! We went to the pier and did some fishing, then we played mini golf. When the ball fell into the last hole, it dropped straight into the sea, but it was made of fish food so we didn’t worry. At the hostel we played Jenga and drank hot chocolate.”
Margaux and George, young adventurers
“In October I stayed at YHA Castleton Losehill Hall in the Peak District. It was easy to plot circular hikes from the hostel to Winnats Pass, Mam Tor and Hollins Cross. In the evening I joined the Supper Club with fellow travellers – we got on so well that we spent the evening playing board games in front of the fire. It was my first YHA stay, but I’m already planning my next trips.”
