If you want to get away from it all for an outdoor activity break, YHA Dartmoor is the perfect spot. The hostel is surrounded by the open moorland and forest of Dartmoor National Park, with access to a network of off-road routes for walking and cycling holidays - it’s a comfortable, child-friendly, rural retreat and provides a perfect base for family rambles. The famous Dartmoor ponies often pay us a visit from the open moorland – always a favourite with visiting children.

BIKE HIRE NOW AVAILABLE: Fancy a cycling holiday but don't want to bring your bike? Hire one here - we've got bikes of every size, along with helmets and locks! We're super affordable so book in advance to avoid disappointment.

The Hostel

There are 35 beds with a selection of private rooms and dorm beds at YHA Dartmoor. This comfortable rural retreat is perfect for family breaks and getting away from it all. Look out for our cosy woodburner - a favourite with guests - exposed stone walls, and plenty of comfy furniture to relax on.

Bike Hire

We have bike hire available on site. Book before you travel to avoid disappointment - contact the hostel directly to book. Kids and adult biles are both available along with helmet and lock hire, all at competitive prices.

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.
