Accommodation at YHA Minehead

Bed in a shared room

Dorms are not currently available. 

Dorm rooms have multiple beds, are typically more affordable than private rooms, and shared with other people who may not be travelling together. A typical shared room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest, secured by a padlock if required.

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

Some dorms may be en-suites, meaning that they have a bathroom in the room that you would be sharing with the other people in your dorm.

Private rooms

Don't fancy sharing a room? Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard for each bed, secured by a padlock if required, a reading light and a wash hand basin. Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room.

Hire the whole place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you.

We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire.

History

Originally built as a private house in 1914, Hagley became a YHA in 1958. Designed in the Arts and Crafts style, the house still retains many original features with stripped pine floorboards and a stained glass front door.

Meet the team

The manager at YHA Minehead, Andrew, has been here since 2001 and you’ll more than likely find him and his family out walking or cycling in the afternoon and all year round!

Manager recommends: If you're on an activity break, walk to the top of Grabbist Hill behind the hostel for stunning views out over South Wales and the higher hills of Exmoor. See where and why the hymn ‘All things bright and beautiful’ was written! If you're on a short weekend break with the kids, visit the West Somerset Steam Railway for a great family day out.

If it all gets a bit busy in the bustling town centre, then do as the locals do and retreat to Blenheim Gardens to admire the fantastic floral displays and listen to live music on a Sunday afternoon.

The small harbour port of Watchet is a short but lovely steam train ride away. Get clued up on the town’s long history at the great little museum and then look out for Coleridge’s Ancient Mariner next to the marina.
