Tips for the booking calendar:

Bookings can be made no less than 7 days in advance on the calendar, if you wish to make a booking within the next week please email or phone Kate.

During Coronavirus restrictions only sole use bookings can be made for the hostel, there is no availability on the individual bed bookings. The cancellation policy does not apply to any cancellations made due to Coronavirus restrictions and guidance.

When you have made your booking I will personally email you with a booking invoice as soon as I can. You will also receive an automated booking message but this will not include the additional £100 refundable bond required to cover any damages.

At the moment there are only a few reviews on here as it is a new online booking system started in March 2020 just before Coronavirus close-down and it needs people who have booked using it to review the hostel.

“Just back from a weekend at the hostel, what a fantastic place, hidden away in the woods it feels like you are miles away from civilisation even though you aren’t. It was clean, warm and had everything we needed for a great weekend of running”.

“My family are just back from a two night break at this fabulous location. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding woodlands, toasting marshmallows on the firepit and relaxing in the spacious communal areas. My personal favourite time was standing outside, all wrapped up with a cuppa in the morning, watching the birds. Kate has take care to provide all those small touches to make the hostel seem homely and the kitchen is especially well equipped. We’ve had such a lovely special family time here and can’t wait to come back”.
