About YHA Wye Valley

Packages and bolt-ons available here

Own canoe landing station

Situated on the banks of the River Wye and surrounded by 25 acres of gardens, grounds, woodlands and trails, YHA Wye Valley is the perfect destination for groups and schools of all ages. With accommodation split across 2 main buildings it’s great for smaller groups wanting an area for themselves, as well as larger groups planning on taking over the whole building. In addition to this we also have 30 camping pitches and 4 bell tents available for those wanting a night under canvas.

For school groups YHA Wye Valley is able to offer a number of exciting activity packages and bolt on activities, including our Alex Rider Mission Briefing and Alex Rider Spy Academy packages – where participating students each receive a free copy of ‘Stormbreaker’ after undertaking our spy themed residential package. Other package options includes our new Discovery packages which incorporates a number of team building challenges, bushcraft skills, orienteering, archery, and  guided walks amongst other activities, or our multi-activity package, which enables groups and schools to add a number of more adventurous activities to those listed above.

For youth groups and schools planning to lead their own trips, YHA Wye Valley enables groups to explore the wider region and has a number of great locations nearby, such as Goodrich Castle, Clearwell Caves and the inspiring Tintern Abbey. Don’t forget that you can also add a half-day or full-day bolt-on session to your self-led stay. We offer group essentials such as free Wi-Fi in communal areas, two spacious lounges, games room and laundry and drying rooms to ensure that all your needs are met during your stay.

YHA Wye Valley offers some unique opportunities for social groups and special interest groups such as climbers, walkers, bikers and water sports enthusiasts. Canoeing straight from our hostel grounds using our own launching platform, climbing at Symond’s Yat and a number of fantastic walking and mountain biking trails are all easily accessible and ready for you to explore.

Relaxing after a busy day exploring all the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley has to offer is easy. We can provide superb group catering including breakfast, packed lunches and evening meals for groups of all types, as well as a licenced bar, in this comfortable base.
