About YHA Minehead

Take to two wheels, relax on a beach or try a spot of badger watching at YHA Minehead. A country retreat in an attractive house high in Somerset’s Exmoor hills, perfect for a weekend break or family get-together. For activity breaks, the nearby tracks are great for mountain biking and cycling holidays, while walkers can enjoy the South West Coast Path. Don’t miss the medieval village of Dunster - a lovely short walk away. Just two miles from sandy beaches, eat in this licensed hostel and you might be rewarded with deer or badger sightings in the garden.

This property is also available for Exclusive Hire during the winter months. Click here for more details.

Manager recommends

  • If you're on an activity break, walk to the top of Grabbist Hill behind the hostel for stunning views out over South Wales and the higher hills of Exmoor. See where and why the hymn ‘All things bright and beautiful’ was written! If you're on a short weekend break with the kids, visit the West Somerset Steam Railway for a great family day out.
