YHA Dufton is a great base for outdoor activity breaks exploring the wild moorland and green valleys. This accommodation in Cumbria is the perfect opportunity to stay in Europe’s first Geopark, an area of great geological interest. YHA Dufton faces the pretty village green near to the Pennine Way, and is perfectly placed to give easy access to Cross Fell and High Cup Nick. YHA staff also reside in an adjacent building, so we're always nearby! The area is good for walking holidays and cycling holidays or just a relaxing weekend break.

The Hostel

YHA Dufton has 32 beds in a selection of dorm, private and en-suite rooms. The Youth Hostel also has educational facilities, beautiful grounds and cosy social areas. The open plan dining space and common room has a selection of tables and chairs and comfortable seating.
