YHA Castleton

Situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park, YHA Castleton is a fully refurbished gothic mansion, set within 27 acres of parkland and offering stunning views across its picturesque surroundings.

Castleton itself is one of the Peak District’s most charming villages, with Peveril Castle, plenty of small, independent shops and numerous pubs for guests to explore and enjoy.  Castleton is also famed for its caves and caverns, most notably the Blue John Cavern, and is a haven for walkers, with walks up Mam Tor amongst a vast range of routes.

The Hostel

The hostel has 146 beds in 36 rooms, most of which have en-suite facilities.  YHA Castleton Losehill Hall is finished to a high standard and boasts a licensed bar and luxurious social areas.  There is plenty of comfortable furniture to relax on and gorgeous finishing touches like a woodburning stove and atmospheric candles.

The West Mews with its 28 beds in 7 rooms can be booked exclusively for your group, it has its own kitchen and lounge so is completely self contained.

Camping Barn

Our camping barn is now open and available for hire.  Heating and cooking is done via a wood-burning range stove, which makes the place really cosy.  The stove is also great for baking – it makes lovely bread!  There’s also an electric kettle, a microwave and lighting so you’ve still got some home comforts. You’ll also find hot water, a hot shower and two toilets.  The six beds are on a mezzanine sleeping platform, accessed by a ladder, and can be arranged as two doubles and two singles or six singles.

The barn is accessed on foot from the car park, so bring your boots and a torch as the (3 minute) walk takes you through our Magic Wood and over a stream by the Waterwheel Bridge.  Car parking is available in the main car park.

The barn has been renovated using recycled materials with timber from our own woodlands (a mix of oak, ash and sycamore).  Our cosy interior has antique leather armchairs, the world’s only ‘rocking stool’ and there is a big picnic bench outside for sunny days and peaceful nights.  There is no Wi-Fi and little phone signal but there are wonderful starlit skies, wild flowers, badgers, birds and bats for entertainment.

YHA Castleton Mews

YHA Castleton Mews, a building in the grounds of YHA Castleton Losehill Hall, is available for hire on an exclusive basis.  This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc, join you.
