National Trust country house

This Peak District home-from-home has great facilities for school trips and groups exploring the Peak District. Whether you’re having a go at archery in our private grounds or visiting amazing attractions like Poole’s Cavern, our National Trust country house gives a warm welcome. YHA Ravenstor offers a spacious meeting room with flipcharts and a projector, looking out onto our stunning landscape.

The hostel has cosy lounge with a roaring fire, free Wi-Fi and TV, plus plenty of space indoors and outdoors for you to relax. Try one of our local ales from our licensed bar, or sit down to group catering including breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal. We’ve got a fab games room too.

YHA Ravenstor makes an ideal base for schools; we offer some excellent packages with our intriguing Alex Rider Spy academy and Mission Briefing and our new Discovery and Multi-Activity packages. Walkers will be equally delighted with our access to Millers Dale and the Monsal Trail – and there are some fab crags at Cheedale for climbing groups too.
