YHA Wooler

30 Cheviot Street, Wooler, Northumberland, ne71 6lw


Experience the beauty of Northumberland at YHA Wooler; it’s an ideal base for walkers, wildlife-watchers and everything in between. With great walks from the doorstep and plenty of historical attractions for school trips, our cosy hostel has everything you need to feel at home. You’ll find free Wi-Fi in our homely lounge and dining area, along with plenty of grounds to spread out or study in.

From board games to a BBQ, there’s plenty for schools and groups to do after a day of activities. We can provide hearty group catering throughout the day, including early breakfasts for walking and cycling expeditions. Why not ask us about some of the activities we offer for school trips?

YHA Wooler is surrounded by things to do, whether you want to sail to breathtaking Lindisfarne or trek along the Cheviot Hills. Alnwick Castle (you’ll know it from the Harry Potter films) and the grisly torture chambers of Chillingham Castle make a great day out for history buffs. For a memorable biology school trip or birdwatching binge, don’t miss a boat trip to the colonies on the Farne Islands.
