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.

You can book individual beds or choose the ‘sole use booking 20 beds’ option. You can also use the booking calendar to hire the hostel or woodland classroom for the day.

If you are booking an individual bed there is no deposit required and no cancellation policy – that only applies to a sole group booking.

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.

At the moment there are few reviews on here as it is a new online booking system in March 2020 and it needs people who have booked using it to review the hostel. Please see the Facebook page for reviews.

“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”.
