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.
