This hostel sleeps about 28 people and provides a dining area large
enough to seat this many people together with a small living area. It
is a little awkward to have circles in the dining area but can be done
with a bit of a squeeze.
The hostel is within walking distance of the town centre and placed
next to a National Trust Woodland.
This is a very short walk, it will take about an hour and it best
suited as a quiet tramp in the colder seasons. To get a map use the
grid reference at the top of the page.
From the front of the hostel head west with the road on your left. You
will pass some woodland on your right and then pass a large field
(games anyone?). After the field you will come to a gate opposite a T
junction. Cross the main road and head down the smaller road (see
Middle Ivy Thorn Farm on the map). When this road bends to the right go
though the gate on the left and back into the woodland. Follow the
trial (and love the sun if there is any) taking the right most path an
any fork. When you will come across a fence turn left and then continue
taking the right most path until you reach some steps. Following these
steps will lead you back up the hill and to the hostel.
