About YHA Wye Valley

With its own canoe landing station and an enviable location in the Forest of Dean, YHA Wye Valley is fully-equipped for active adventures. We offer some amazing packages for school trips including our amazing Alex Rider Mission Briefing and Spy Academy packages and our new Discovery and Multi-Activity packages, not to mention 25 acres of land to explore. Our atmospheric hostel includes two lounges for groups and students to relax, plus a sunny picnic area with amazing views.

YHA Wye Valley can cater for groups needing breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal; there’s a fully licensed bar too. Socialise or study on our neighbouring riverbank, wind down with a book or board game, or ask us about our favourite walks. You won’t believe how much is nearby.

If you want an adventure on the Wye, push off from our own canoe station to explore miles of canoe-able river. There are some magnificent routes for walkers too, including trails through the Welsh borders and to climber’s favourite Symonds Yat. School trips and groups can also tackle the forest on two wheels, or have a day out at Tintern Abbey, Goodrich Castle or Clearwell Caves.
