With fantastic cultural attractions in easy reach and walking and cycling routes from our doorstep, YHA Helmsley is perfect for exploring North Yorkshire. This cosy hostel boasts wooden beams, a sunny conservatory and great facilities for cyclists. Groups can log on to the free Wi-Fi, relax in the comfortable TV area, or wind down with a Black Sheep ale from our licensed bar.
YHA Helmsley makes an ideal base for a school trip and we offer group catering for breakfast, packed lunches and dinner. History fans will find Castle Howard and Rievaulx Abbey nearby, or just spend the day at Helmsley Castle and Walled Garden. You can even learn about WW2 at Eden Camp.
If you fancy visiting both Whitby and York during your stay, we’re placed right in the middle. We’re also at the start of the Cleveland Way National Trail and in an unbeatable area for cyclists. The Howardian Hills and the Vale of Pickering surround us, so you can take on the North York Moors from a cycle-friendly base. Come home in the evenings to modern facilities and a warm welcome.
