Welcome to our hostel

A jewel of a hostel, this splendid country house in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District is a real treat. Hartington YHA is a wonderful base from which to explore on foot or by bike, or to visit the area’s rich variety of attractions.

Log fires, oak panelling and its own beer and music festival make this 17th century manor house a must – and Bonnie Prince Charlie even slept here. A picturesque area for cyclists and walkers with Alton Towers and Chatsworth House nearby.

You can even get married here and stay in a luxury suite. Families will enjoy the pets area and adventure playground. Good home-cooked meals available. Accommodation is in 1-6+ bedded rooms and facilities include TV, self-catering kitchen, laundry, internet access and games room.
