Accommodation at YHA Grinton Lodge

Bed in a shared room

Dorm rooms have multiple beds and are shared with other people who may not be travelling together. They are usually more affordable than private rooms as you'll be booking a bed rather than the whole room.

A typical shared dorm room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest.

Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.

Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room. None of our dorm rooms have en-suite facilities.

Private rooms

Want some privacy? With a private room, you'll be booking the whole room for your stay.

Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus a wash hand basin.

Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room.

Private en-suite rooms

For added privacy, relax with your family, friends or by yourself in a private en-suite room.

Private en-suite rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus shower and toilet facilities solely for the people in your room.

Camping pods

If you like camping, you'll love these wooden camping pods! A stay in them will includes all the fun of camping plus protection from the elements - they even have heaters.

Bring all your usual camping gear, apart from sleeping bags and mats - bedding is included. Each pod also has its own individual decking area. You're welcome to bring a BBQ or gas stove to use in our BBQ area.

Three are five camping pods at YHA Grinton Lodge - the standard pod sleeps up to 2 people on two single beds and the large pod sleeps up to 4 people on a double and two single beds.

Landpods

Like camping but with a few added extras! Our Landpods sleep up to 4 people, on two double mattresses and a single futon mattress, which doubles up as the seating area. All bedding is included, plus duvets and LED lighting.

Landpods don't have heating, so are more suited to the those who like a traditional camping experience. Even in the colder months, it’s nothing a couple of warm, cosy blankets can’t fix! There is a bench and BBQ firepit outside, so make the most of the great outdoors and dine al fresco.

Pitch-up camping

Camping is sold per person and not per pitch. During the booking process, you will need to select the number of people who you wish to camp.

YHA Grinton Lodge's camping area is in a fantastic location with gorgeous views over Swaledale and the village of Reeth. The campsite itself is large with space for up to eight pitches and is suitable for organised group holidays as well as family breaks.

Guests have access to shower and toilet facilities, where you can freshen up after a night sleeping under the stars. You can also use the hostel's self-catering kitchen from 06:30 to 23:30. BBQs and gas stoves can be used in our BBQ area.

The car park is about 250m from the camp site.

Hire the whole place

Planning an overdue get-together or celebrating a birthday/anniversary? Looking for a base for your group's next adventure? Make your special occasion extra special with YHA Exclusive Hire.

You can hire the whole building at YHA Grinton Lodge and, with sole use of the property, come and go as you please. This 19th century former hunting lodge makes a great base for a walking and rambling holiday to explore the stunning area. Dogs are welcome too!

History

This former hunting lodge was built in 1817 and remained in private hands until after World War II when it was sold to YHA and has been used as a youth hostel ever since. The castle-esque building is impressive in structure and design and is built around a central courtyard.

Meet the team

Manager recommends: For a more relaxed walking holiday, take a beautiful walk along the river and meander back through the picture postcard village of Reeth. If you're looking for a camping holiday with a difference, try our new camping pods. For group and schools, YHA Grinton Lodge offers a range of outdoor activities in partnership with Carnegie Great Outdoors (Leeds Met University).
