3 of the finest
YHA hostel locations worth seeking out
St Briavels Castle, Gloucestershire
Acquired by King Henry II and frequented by his son King John, this place is out on its own when it comes to moated Norman castles you can stay in for less than £20 a night.
Black Sail, Lake District
The YHA’s most remote property is 2½ miles from the nearest road. Nevertheless, modernity proliferates in the shape of thermal insulation, sun pipes, photovoltaic and solar panels.
Snowdon Bryn Gwynant, Gwynedd
Glorious Victorian mansion sitting in 42 acres of land and the promise of so much beyond, looking out as it does over Llyn Gwynant and Mount Snowdon.
