New Camping Barn at YHA Castleton

New Camping Barn at YHA Castleton

YHA Castleton Losehill Hall's new camping barn is now open and available for hire. Heating and cooking is done via a wood-burning range stove, which makes the place really cosy. The stove is also great for baking - it makes lovely bread! There's also an electric kettle, a microwave and lighting so you've still got some home comforts. You'll also find hot water, a hot shower and two toilets. The six beds are on a mezzanine sleeping platform, accessed by a ladder, and can be arranged as two doubles and two singles or six singles.

In winter the barn is accessed on foot from the car park, so bring your boots and a torch as the (3 minute) walk takes you through our Magic Wood and over a stream by the Waterwheel Bridge. By the summer we hope to have a parking area right by the barn, but for now we’ve reserved a couple of parking spaces in the main car park.

The barn has been renovated using recycled materials with timber from our own woodlands (a mix of oak, ash and sycamore). Our cosy interior has antique leather armchairs, the world's only ‘rocking stool’ and there is a big picnic bench outside for sunny days and peaceful nights. There is no Wi-Fi and little phone signal but there are wonderful starlit skies, wild flowers, badgers, birds and bats for entertainment.

The barn is available to book here.
