YHA Dimmingsdale is a delightful base for outdoor activity breaks exploring the Staffordshire moorlands. This purpose built, single storey hostel stands in its own grounds in secluded woodland. There is a large lawn with two picnic tables for relaxing outdoors, and YHA Dimmingsdale is surrounded by beautiful nature. The dining room and lounge are open plan - it's a large spacious room to both eat and relax in, with 12 easy chairs for chilling out.

This hostel enjoys views across the Churnet Valley and is close to a host of great attractions. For cycling and walking holidays don't miss the Staffordshire Way, Cauldon Canal and nature reserves. Thrill seekers can stay in this rural Staffordshire accommodation close to Alton Towers and beat the queues at Britain’s biggest theme park.

The Hostel

YHA Dimmingsdale has 20 beds arranged in 2 x 6 and 1 x 8 bedded rooms. All rooms have washbasins and are on the ground floor. All bed linen is provided, so there is no need to bring along your own bedding. There is an open plan living and dining space with plenty of tables and chairs available for guests to lounge on.

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

The hostel is self-catering only, but Cheadle and the market towns of Ashbourne, Uttoxeter, and Leek are all nearby. The self-catering kitchen is part of the open plan living space and contains a domestic sized cooker with grill, a microwave, 2 x 4 twin burners, a toaster, two fridges, two kettles, an outside barbeque and a wide range of kitchen utensils, plus crockery and cutlery for 20 people. There is a good amount of storage and preparation space. You can even dine al fresco as we have a seating area outside which is perfect for picnics when the weather is fine.
