About YHA Boggle Hole

Ahoy there! If you're looking for UK beach breaks or activity breaks or just accommodation near Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay YHA Boggle Hole could be just the place. Nestled on the beach in an old smuggler’s cove, Boggle Hole is the perfect holiday hideaway for family breaks.

This iconic hostel will provide a traditional UK coastal holiday 'beside the seaside', so building sandcastles, fossil-hunting and paddling are in, while mobile phones and Playstations are out. You’ll also have the chance to explore the Yorkshire Heritage Coast and delightful villages along the way.

After your busy day of seaside exploration, treat yourself to a delicious home cooked meal in Boggle Hole's restaurant. Have a look at a sample menu of what you can expect when you eat with us here.

Manager recommends

  • For a real family beach break, spend your free time playing and walking along the beach to Robin Hood's Bay, searching for fossils and Whitby Jet, swimming in the sea and beachcombing for ‘washed up treasures'. Take a packed lunch and spend the whole day away from the hustle and bustle of the real world - and enjoy the delights of a UK coastal holiday!
