YHA SlaidburnClitheroe, Lancashire, BB7 3ER
A sometimes forgotten part of the world, owing to its more illustrious neighbours north and east, the Forest of Bowland AONB is a stark yet stunning landscape.
Formerly the Black Bull pub, King’s House - also known as YHA Slaidburn - is one of YHA’s oldest hostels and has plenty of rural charm. A rustic home from home, it makes a comfortable base for ramblers and cyclists alike. You'll find plenty of local shops and services nearby, and our cosy hostel sits in the centre of the village, near to an excellent pub. YHA Slaidburn has no phone signal or WiFi, so its the perfect location if you want to escape from it all!

Accommodation at YHA Slaidburn
Bed in a shared room
Dorms are not currently available.
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.
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.
