On 22nd October, we invited 14 outdoor, lifestyle and travel bloggers to YHA Castleton Losehill Hall to promote YHA’s Supper Club.
Supper Club is a communal two course meal which encourages hostel guests to share their travelling experiences and meet fellow guests. This is the authentic hostel experience where travellers can bond over a delicious evening meal after a day of adventuring.
The event was hosted at YHA Castleton Losehill Hall, perfectly situated in the heart of the Peak District. We were led on a scenic guided tour by two members of the YHA Castleton Losehill Hall team who took us up Losehill and across to Hollins Cross. The weather was definitely on our side as our day was bright, dry and sunny. Once we (finally!) reached the summit, the views of Mam Tor and Hope Valley were incredible. There were definitely great photo and video opportunities.
After a challenging but beautiful ramble, we traded our walking boots for our slippers as we competed in some classic board games. Selected YHA hostels offer sets of Scrabble, Monopoly, draughts, chess and Cluedo, providing an opportunity for some digital downtime for guests who wish to escape their screens during a break with YHA.
We had definitely worked up an appetite which was fulfilled by a hearty, two-course meal provided as part of the YHA Supper Club. For the meat eaters, chicken and vegetable pie with mixed vegetables and gravy was served, and for the veggies, the option was a broccoli and cauliflower pasty with mixed vegetables and gravy. Vegan and gluten free options are also available. You can view our Supper Club menu here to see what tickles your fancy.
After Supper Club, it was time to carry on the fun and games in the dining room in front of the roaring log burner. After an enjoyable and busy day, it was time to get some rest to be up bright and early for breakfast.
Our trip was short and sweet and the bloggers thoroughly enjoyed their time with us which you can read about on their blogs or Instagram accounts. Supper Club was a great setting for everyone to get to know one another and YHA Castleton Losehill Hall was the perfect base with beautiful surroundings. Thanks to all the bloggers who attended the Supper Club event – it was a huge success!
