A lovely place to stay in the Dales

— —

The Kettlewell Hostel is a 40 bed independent hostel in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales Village of Kettlewell. The handsome stone building, which doubles up as the village post office and secondhand bookstore, has been part of the YHA network for over 70 years. We have eleven bedrooms: some larger family rooms, some smaller for couples and individuals. We happily accommodate large parties as well as couples or solo walkers on their journeys through the dales. You can hire the whole hostel for private parties and activity weekends all year round.

We serve the most delicious food, from the lovely locally sourced breakfasts, home made packed lunches and hearty evening meals including our wonderful 8 hour beef stew with proper mash and peppered cabbage. We have a nice large dining room with plenty of space to enjoy your food. We sell a great range of local ales and ciders a have a nice lounge on the first floor with a wood-burning stove to sit, read or play board games.

Kettlewell is a really great base to explore the Yorkshire Dales, there are loads of great walks straight from the front door, there are good easy walks along the river if you have children with you or take the challenge to walk up Great Whernside and Buckden Pike! We have a large secure bike shed, if you like a challenging ride there are 8 of the UK’s top 100 climbs within a days ride including the exciting Park Rash and the highest road in Yorkshire- Fleet Moss we are also on the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway, the Tour De France route and are a nice stop off on The Way of the Roses.

The dining room doubles up as a classroom or conference room, We can seat 40 so the average class can fit nicely and our lounge makes an excellent spot for informal training, map work or just hanging out in front of the fire for an evening!
