Welcome to our hostel

A lovely spot in a steep-sided valley on the rugged north Cornwall coast, this National Trust-owned rural retreat is on the harbour edge. Here, on your Cornish coast break, you can sit and watch this pretty, bustling fishing village come to life during the day and return to a sleepier pace in the evenings.

It's self-catering only here, but you can get to know the locals in the nearby pubs while sampling some tasty Cornish food and local ales.

For a more energetic activity break, you’ll also find excellent surfing and sailing plus miles of coastal footpaths to explore - great for walking holidays.

Unglaublich schön und gepflegt, beste Jugendherberge von Vornwall, Linda ist super nett und hilfsbereit, eine Nacht ist zu wenig, man kann super wandern, erholsam, Bad sehr, sehr schön, Mehrbettzimmer unglaublich groß und geräumig, alles sehr fein und äußerst angenehm.
