We are open!

Our hostel has beds and rooms to suit a range of needs and budgets:
The hostel is also available for the exclusive use of up to 33 people. In low season the whole hostel can be booked for as little as £500 per night.
Less than 10 minutes walk from Hebden Bridge centre and 15 minutes from the railway station, the hostel nestles into a wooded hillside adjoining a Grade II listed former Baptist chapel. Hebden Bridge town has a river and canal, unique shops and cafes, great music and the densest network of footpaths in the country. Local buses stop just outside and we have ample car, motorbike and bicycle parking.
Paths lead from our front door directly into the woods and out onto the moors, and it’s walking distance to the renovated Gibson Mill at Hardcastle Crags – a flagship eco project with visitor centre and cafe, powered by solar, hydro and biomass deep in a National Trust valley. We’re also close to national trails – The Pennine Way, Calderdale Way, Pennine Bridleway – and Haworth (Bronte country) is a hike of around 8 miles.
The hostel usually closes to individual guests the first weekend in November and re-opens on the Friday 9 days before Easter Sunday.
***In 2020 we’re going to stay open for individual bookings right through Autumn and Christmas, until the end of the year!***
Whole hostel bookings are possible at all times of the year.
Hebden Bridge is a quirky market town in West Yorkshire, in the foothills of the South Pennines, situated on the Pennine Way. It is easily accessible by public transport and by car. The M62 is less than 10 miles away while the mainline railway that runs between Leeds and Manchester (both less than an hour away) stops here.
Hebden Bridge has a population of approximately 4,500 – many of whom work in local businesses and run the impressive array of small independent shops for which the town is justifiably famous. Plans by big business to colonise the town are vigorously opposed by residents’ groups and locals ask visitors to support the town’s independent shops and avoid using any national ‘chains’ that are trying to sneak in.
Hebden Bridge has a diverse musical and cultural scene and hosts many arts and other festivals throughout the year. The famous Trades Club hosts top-name entertainment from near and far and don’t forget the local independent Picture House – a vintage treat which boasts state-of-the-art sound and cinema in a nostalgic setting.
