Peacefully located in the North York Moors National Park, this refurbished North Yorkshire accommodation is a former school with many ‘green’ features - perfect for a relaxing eco holiday or cheap family break. Nearby is Levisham Station, one of the stops on the North York Moors Steam Railway, great for access to linear walks over uncrowded moorland. Cropton Forest and Dalby Forest Drive will keep walking and cycling holiday enthusiasts happy.

YHA Dalby Forest has 21 beds with a selection of private rooms, dorm rooms and en-suite rooms available. The hostel has excellent self-catering facilities, a drying room and lounge areas for relaxing after a busy day. Our lounge is cosy and comfortable with seating and a large dining table. Relax by our wood burning stove after a day out walking on the Yorkshire Dales.

Hire the Whole Place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website, or use our live chat service for more information.

Self-Catering Facilities

YHA Dalby Forest is a self catering only hostel and has plenty of facilities for you to make use of. Or why not make the halfway point of your afternoon stoll one of the nearby village pubs?

Length

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
