YHA Edale receives a grand makeover

A hostel ideal for an adrenaline-fueled break in England has reopened its doors following a £250,000 refurbishment, transforming it into a world-class centre for outdoor activity.

YHA Edale has done up its interior into a modern and comfortable place to stay with spruced-up bedrooms, shiny new washrooms and beautifully redecorated communal areas that are perfect for relaxing and spending time with other hostellers.

With these improvements, you’ll be able to enjoy a bit of luxury without busting your bank account in the middle of peaceful and unspoiled natural beauty.

YHA Edale is situated on the slopes of Kinder Scout in the Peak District National Park, making it an ideal budget base from which to explore the surrounding countryside. Stunning scenery and an abundance of outdoor activities make this spectacular area a popular action-packed break for groups, families and solo travellers.

A rugged moorland country offers something to suit all abilities whether you are a beginner or a highly experienced outdoor enthusiast – from walking and rock climbing to mountain biking.

Caroline White, chief executive of YHA (England and Wales), said: “YHA Edale is one of our most popular locations for groups looking for a great activity break. The refurbishment of the Youth Hostel is part of our continuing investment in our hostels to ensure they offer the great welcome and friendly stay of which we, the YHA, is rightly proud. We have world class hostels in fantastic locations and we want to make sure that as many people as possible know about what a great time they can have when they stay with us.”

This amazing project is only the starting point of YHA’s refurbishment programme of which the plan is to invest over £13 million in the renovation of eight hostels plus the creation of a new one – YHA South Downs in East Sussex.

The aim is to create a world-class network of youth hostels that are homely, open to all and that suit the modern traveller.
