YHA Edale

A grand old country house, YHA Edale Activity Centre is one of the highest residences in the Peak District and has a view to match.  With the Great Ridge between Lose Hill and Mam Tor to the south and the Dark Peak moorland of the Kinder plateau to the north, YHA Edale Activity Centre is surrounded by stunning scenery.

Walkers will enjoy the numerous footpaths into the hills, dales and moors.  With fantastic facilities, knowledgeable staff and proximity to peerless natural wonders, Edale is best placed to offer incredible adventures in the great outdoors.

The Hostel

There are three separate buildings and a multitude of different sized rooms in this 157 bed Youth Hostel to cater for the needs of groups, families and individuals alike, and there are classrooms and a drying room too.  All of our rooms, including both private rooms and dormitories, contain bunk beds.  Our two-bed rooms are small in size and are not en-suite.  Most of the Youth Hostel has been recently refurbished to ensure a comfortable stay whatever the weather.  One of our accommodation blocks, Kinder Cottage, is accessed by 90 steps so please contact us directly if you have accessibility issues.

Edale Activity Centre

As a year round activity centre, YHA Edale Activity Centre is the perfect place to enjoy a taste of a range of exciting activities for an adventure to remember in the great outdoors.  Whether you’re on your own or with your family, a beginner or a seasoned adventurer, we’ve got something for you.  Over 30 years of experience and our own team of qualified instructors ensure safety, quality and great memories to last a lifetime.

Activity courses are run throughout the year, but because of popularity, must be booked in advance.  Learn the ropes or improve your skills with a weekend course in climbing, caving, canoeing, navigation and more.  Too much to choose from?  Try a multi-activity family break and give a few things a go.  Two and four night breaks are available during school holidays and weekends with a wide range of activities accessible to all.  Half day activity sessions are also available.  Please contact the hostel for details.

Plus, if you wish to enjoy an activity break as part of a larger group, bespoke, fully inclusive activity packages are available all year round for any group, regardless of age or experience.
