The iFootpath Directory - YHA Lands End

Information for walkers in the UK

YHA Lands End

Just five miles north of Land's End, this Youth Hostel accommodation is a great place for an activity break or to relax after exploring west Cornwall’s many attractions. The famous signpost and tourist hotspot of mainland Britain’s most south-westerly point are but five miles south, yet you wouldn’t know it. Cradled in the peaceful Cot Valley, YHA Land’s End offers a tranquil spot far from the madding crowd.

YHA Land's End is tucked away with fine views to the sea and a five minute walk to the South West Coast Path - perfect for a value family break. We're more than just a swell view of the Atlantic; beaches and the great countryside are nearby, so we're equally good for surfing breaks, birdwatching and walking holidays.

Cape Cornwall is just a 30 minute walk away if you want to admire the spectacular view from the NCI lookout station. Or head for the hills and explore the Penwith Moors - there are some amazing stone circles and Iron Age villages along the way. Whether you want to learn about the historical mining locations made famous in Poldark or just relax on a sublime beach, we're a one-stop location for paradise.

FREE WI-FI is available for guests!

Please note that camping is sold per person and not per pitch and so, during the booking process, you will need to select the number of people that you wish to camp.

Camp out on the front lawn of YHA Land's End surrounded by breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful sunset. This small camping area is well sheltered with easy access to facilities and the main Youth Hostel building with its lounge and dining room. The site can accommodate up to 12 people and is suitable for organised groups, individual travellers and families. With a small but perfectly formed camping area out front, a well-stocked bar, space for BBQs and sweeping views of the ocean, you’d be forgiven for simply pitching up and staying put!
