YHA Leominster was a workhouse of the Old Priory, a Benedictine Monastery that dates back to the 11th Century. Leominster is situated in the Marches, the fiercely disputed borderlands between Wales and England, which have been fought over for centuries. It was once the home of mighty heroes and villains such as the notorious Earl Mortimer who, in the 14th Century, led the Marcher Lords against King Edward II, and even ruled the country for three years. The very building you’ll be staying in was once part of a Benedictine Monastery, built during the rule of the Normans on the site of an old Anglo-Saxon nunnery.
We are at the heart of the Black and White Villages, whose style dates back to Tudor times and was famously adopted by the Victorians. The walking and cycling in the area is excellent, and we have some maps available for sale or hire in the Youth Hostel. There are several National Trust properties nearby, along with museums, visitor centres and beautiful water gardens. You can visit the Queenswood and Leominster Country Park, or go for a round of golf at one of our local courses. If you enjoy your food and drink, sample the cheese at Monkland Cheese Dairy, visit us during the Ludlow or Herefordshire Food Festivals, or take the Cider Route, a 20 mile cycle tour through some of the best cider producing country in the UK.
