YHA Grinton Lodge


Description

With its own unique style, elevated position and dedicated facilities for groups, this former hunting lodge is an excellent choice for exploring North Yorkshire. Perched on the slopes of Swaledale, with stunning views across and down the valley, fascinating geography all around, and on-site activities for school trips, YHA Grinton Lodge offers the perfect mix of mod cons and period charm.

With plenty of internal breakout space, including a dedicated classroom, smaller study room, games room, dining room and lounge, plus outside, a large contained lawn, gravel courtyard, 5-a-side football pitch and onsite activity course – there’s plenty of room for groups.

YHA Grinton Lodge also makes a great destination for groups keen on leading their own activities, be it secondary schools, colleges or universities wanting to lead fieldwork sessions in the fabulous moorland that’s accessible straight from the hostel door, or primary school planning their own bespoke residential. You can also add YHA led activities as a half day or full day bolt onto your self-led stay or go that little further and book in a day of activities with High Adventure.

A clean site and building, safe and delicious food. The staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent immediate access to the moors. One minor but essential point to note. The self locking door needed to be checked nightly as the door didn't always close, therefore the automatic lock did not engage. (July 2018 - Primary School)




Excellent location. Very helpful staff but on this occasion the building was overbooked. (July 2018 - Secondary School)
