Hostel Closing Times:
Is the hostel open every day of the year?
- YHA Ilam's lovely grounds stretch to 84 acres of country park on the banks of the River Manifold - great for activity breaks or school trips. Don't miss the short walk from the hostel to the famous Stepping Stones in Dovedale, with interesting caves to explore if you're on a cheap family break; or outdoor games, woodland wanders and riverside walks make a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Walking holidays in the Peak District wouldn't be complete without a stroll through this beautiful landscape. And, with Alton Towers being so close to your accommodation, there's fun for thrill-seekers and families on the doorstep.
We can host a volunteer on a live-in basis any time over the winter. This could be a student volunteer, work experience or just any general volunteer team member - email for more information.
