About YHA Once Brewed

Just a few hundred metres away from the most spectacular section of Hadrian’s Wall, this YHA accommodation within the Northumberland National Park is good for both activity breaks and school trips. YHA Once Brewed is great for archaeological holidays too, within walking distance of Vindolanda Roman excavations, and Housesteads, Britain’s most complete Roman fort. Once Brewed is also popular with people on walking and cycling holidays. Visitors can enjoy meals and a cold beer or a glass of wine in our licensed restaurant. There is plenty of parking at the hostel, making it a perfect stop off on any road trip around the British Isles.
