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.
