About YHA Exford

Explore the natural beauty of the Exmoor National Park at YHA Exford – a large country house surrounded by the great outdoors. From walking parties who love the area’s rolling hills to school trips learning about our abundant wildlife, this homely hostel makes a great base for groups.

The hostel offers a quiet meeting room to plan your next adventure together or squeeze in some studying. You can also relax on the sofas with a bit of telly in our cosy lounge. Between your adventures, let us refuel you with tasty group catering with breakfast, lunch and evening meals available. There’s a licensed bar too if you want to wind down in the garden with a glass of wine or a beer.
