Statement on Hindhead and YHA Tanners Hatch

Statement on Hindhead and YHA Tanners Hatch

YHA is investing in Youth Hostels throughout England and Wales to help the organisation fulfil our vision of enhancing the lives of all young people.

YHA’s Board of Trustees has considered the financial investment in the network carefully and is confident that the plans will ensure a new generation of young people will be introduced to the benefits of staying with YHA and that our members and customers will have an improved experience.
 
As a result of negotiations with the National Trust, YHA is signing an extended lease on YHA Tanner's Hatch, near Dorking.  We are delighted that we have secured the long-term future of this site and can continue to welcome our members and guests to stay in the Surrey Hills.
 
As part of our work with the National Trust, YHA is surrendering the lease on the Youth Hostel at Hindhead.  Staff and our volunteers who work and manage the site are being consulted, and we are working with them to reassign their duties.
 
YHA Hindhead will remain open until 31st March 2015 and any bookings made up to that date are unaffected.
 
YHA has always opened new sites and closed them, adapting our network to best suit the needs of our members and guests. During the last 3 years, YHA has invested £17m in our Youth Hostels and we have made significant plans to continue to do so.
 
Decisions like hostel closures are never taken lightly.  The decision has been reached jointly with the National Trust and we will be focusing our efforts on YHA Tanner's Hatch to maintain a presence in the area. It is an integral part of YHA's Capital Strategy to have a fully invested in network of Youth Hostels that meet the needs of today’s guests.
