History

YHA Hartington Hall is a 17th century manor house situated in the beautiful Peak District. This lovely Jacobean building was constructed in 1611 and has lots of beautiful period features! Want to stay over in a real piece of English heritage? YHA Hartington Hall feels every bit as grand as a stately home - in fact we haven't changed that much since we opened in 1934. The hostel boasts lots of fascinating period features like stained glass, oak panelled rooms and eerie filled-in stone windows.

You can forget the bright and bold decor of many city hostels; Hartington has a historical ambience that's matured over hundreds of years. Bonnie Prince Charlie may have stayed here during the Jacobite rising of 1745, and we recently welcomed 77 Bombay Street for a stay ahead of their Seven Mountains Tour.

Meet the team

Cat has worked for YHA for 11 years, starting as a Team Member at YHA Bath after returning from a year travelling round the world. She then worked all over the network North and South, working her way up to Manager here at Hartington Hall. She really loves the YHA organisation - the variety within the job whatever position she has undertaken, the people you meet (both staff and customers) and the values of YHA and their work with young people.

Cat has finally settled down in the Peak District after living all over the UK, Thailand and Japan. She enjoys walking her dog and running in the local countryside, as well as travelling both in the UK and further afield, although she needs to start spending less money on holidays and more money (and time) on doing up her house!

We recommend: The perfect Derbyshire wedding venue! We're also well known for our Christmas and New Year packages, not to mention the annual Beer and Music Festival. If you're looking for accommodation near to Alton Towers, we're just a short drive away. The hostel is popular for walking holidays in the White Peak or activity breaks in the stunning Peak District countryside.
