Wooler Hostel and Shepherds' Huts offers a traditional Youth Hostelling experience; real value for money and a truly northern welcome.

Once a Land Army Girls' hostel, it accommodates up to 57 people and is ideal for individuals, families and groups.

Guests can stay in the newly refurbished bedrooms in the main hostel or in one of its new, traditional and unique, Shepherds' huts.

Both "Far from the Madding Crowd", and very well connected, this three star hostel is one of Northumberland's most understated places to stay.

Located on the edge of the town with panoramic views across Glendale, established Cheviot pathways (such as the St Cuthbert's Way) converge on its doorstep, and the A697 - one of the major north-south routes - is only ½ a mile away.

The Hostel and Shepherds' Huts are perfectly located for those wanting to tour, walk, and cycle or just wanting to enjoy the historical, geological and natural environment of North Northumberland and the National Park.

Set in extensive grounds, it is a safe and secure site, accessible throughout for all ages and abilities.

Today the hostel offers you self-catering, cooked meals, drying facilities, and a variety of room types. These include en-suite rooms and new Shepherds' Huts - which capture the spirit of the traditional Northumberland countryside.

So if you're a lone path trekker, or long distance runner, a family fun forager, or a group out for a gathering – for a day, a weekend, a week or whatever – Wooler Hostel will help you recharge – just as it looked after the girls in the War!
