If you want a relaxing weekend break in a rural retreat with good access to London, YHA Jordans is the Youth Hostel for you. Set in a village with a long Quaker heritage, this is a tranquil place to stay near the famous 17th century Friends’ Meeting House. We're self-catering only, so bring supplies with you! YHA Jordans is only five miles from the London Underground so you can be in the capital in just 30 minutes. This accommodation is also handy for Legoland Windsor, Harry Potter Studios and Heathrow Airport.

FREE WI-FI available in communal areas for guests!

The Hostel

All bedrooms are on the ground floor. We have 2 x 5 bedded rooms and 2 x 6 bedded rooms. The bedrooms are small with limited floor space, so please keep luggage to a minimum.

Our living and dining communal space has plenty of room and comfy seating, as well as being full of character. During the colder months, cosy up around our wood burning stove.

Sorry, but this hostel is not suitable for children under three.


Our petite camping area is located at the front of the hostel, in our beautiful woodland garden. The campsite can comfortably accommodate one large four berth tent or four individual tents.

The camping area is close to a patio area which has a fire pit and BBQ which guests are more than welcome to make use of, for that authentic camping experience! Fire wood can be collected nearby or bring your own. Charcoal is available at YHA Jordans' shop.

The car park is on the Youth Hostel grounds, close to the campsite.

The length of our walking guides is given in miles and rounded to the nearest full mile (whole number) for simplicity. For short walks (of less than 2 miles) or walks that have a length that ends in .5, a more accurate walk length may be given in the first section of the walk introduction. For example, the Length in the header may be listed as 6 miles, and the introduction may confirm that the exact length of the walk is 5.5 miles. The walk length is calculated from the GPS file that was created by the walk author GPS tracking the walk whilst walking, using the iFootpath App GPS Tracker, meaning it is very accurate. Our bespoke tracker is particularly detailed and plots a walkers position about every 10 seconds. The tracker is calibrated to match two other reputable map and walking sources, Ordnance Survey and Nike. As with all standardised walk and map lengths, the distance does not take account of hills and slopes, just the distance you would measure using a piece of string on a flat map version of the terrain, so hilly walks will feel longer than stated. If you track the route using another GPS App or Tracker App or Fitness Device, you can expect the distance you record to be different due to different calibrations. This is particularly true of those Apps and devices that count your motion and steps – these can only guess the distance you have travelled with each step and so are much less accurate.

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult the terrain is that you will encounter along the way. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. It takes into account things like hills, path surfaces and obstacles (like stiles, gates, steps and rock scrambles). An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 Boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. 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 that require scrambling with your hands. 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.

NOTE: Do be aware that the level of stamina required for any walk will vary depending on both the walk length and the difficulty grade - you should only walk within your limits.
