Whether you’re a school trip or an activity group, our homely hostel makes a great base for studying, walking or sightseeing. We offer free Wi-Fi, a large social space for eating, relaxing or studying, plus classroom facilities for school trips. You’ll find Black Sheep Ales at our bar too.

YHA Hawes sits just a couple of minutes away from Hawes; England’s highest market town. You’ll find walking maps to inspire you and a garden with views to die for. After a day out exploring, satisfy your hunger with our group catering options – we can offer breakfast, lunch and evening meals.

From epic waterfalls like Hawdraw Force to the magical Red Squirrel trail, the Yorkshire Dales is packed with things to do.

We’ve got excellent walking and cycling routes from the door and the Dales Countryside Museum is less than a mile away – great for study groups.
