Accommodation at YHA Wilderhope Manor

The hostel

There's a mixture of dorm beds and private rooms available, not forgetting the fabulous Bridal Suite with a 4-poster bed and roll-top bath for those special occasions. Weekends book up fast for functions, call us today to arrange a viewing.

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. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website.

YHA Wilderhope Manor is available for Exclusive Hire this Christmas from 23rd December to 27th December 2017. The Great Hall dining room will make Christmas dinner feel extra special and the sofas around the wood burning stove in the Parlour make a lovely cosy place to relax. There is accommodation for up to 30 guests between 10 bedrooms.


Please note that camping is sold per person and not per pitch and so, during the booking process, you will need to select the number of people that you wish to camp.

YHA Wilderhope Manor offers a simple camping experience amongst beautiful Shropshire farmland. The field is flat at the lower end but rises steeply at the top to give great views over Brown Clee Hill. This peaceful spot is ideal to relax and take in the night sky.

The camping site can accommodate up to three family sized tents and a couple of small one man tents. There are two toilets 20 meters from the field and then campers have access to the main shower and self catering facilities in the hostel.

The car park is next to the camping field behind the tree lined hedge.

Check in
Check in from 3pm, check out before 12pm.

Opening times
The campsite is open until to the 28th October and again from 1st April.

Important information
Campfires are strictly prohibited. Guests are welcome to use BBQs on the terrace at the front of the manor with stunning views down the valley.
