Ideal for outdoor activities in Surrey

Have fun in the great outdoors with a stay at YHA Holmbury St Mary – one of our oldest purpose-built locations! We’ve got over 80 years of experience of welcoming walking groups here, and our rural location is perfect for fun activity breaks. Browse the web with free Wi-Fi in our homely lounge, go for a walk in our surrounding woodland, or enjoy a drink for our fully licensed bar.

Groups and schools are well catered for here, with meals available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hostel offers a coded door lock for security and plenty of indoor and outdoor space for you to relax. Look out for educational activities on-site like orienteering and team challenges.

YHA Holmbury St Mary sits in deepest Surrey and is an ideal base for walking, cycling, mountain-biking and horse-riding. Biology students will find an outdoor classroom of woodland in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on our doorstep. We’re close enough to visit attractions like Chessington World of Adventure, or you could even splash out on an exciting trip to London.
