Wooler Hostel is an enterprise hostel and part of the YHA organisation. It is independently owned and operated by The Glendale Gateway Trust, our local community development trust and a Charitable organisation.
Wooler Youth Hostel & Shepherds' Huts sleeps up to 57 guests in a range of different sized rooms from en-suite and shared, to the unique huts.
Although purpose-built in 1943 to accommodate the Land Army girls, the hostel has spent most of its life as a YHA hostel. Now owned and run by the Community, it still proudly maintains its YHA links.
Gateway to a number of Northumberland's treasures such as the Northumberland National Park, the St. Cuthbert's Way and spectacular views of the Glendale's and Cheviot Hills make Wooler Youth Hostel and Shepherds' Huts, ideal for educational and specialist groups to visit.
Other attractions include the Wooler cycle hub routes, the Pennines cycleway, and countless quiet lanes. For the more adventurous the nearby bridleways are perfect for mountain biking, and we have some of the best bouldering in the UK. The Hostel is open to the Walkers and Cyclists Welcome Scheme, for those who enjoy spending their days in the great outdoors.
We are open from April to October for individual guests, families and groups. From November to March the hostel is available on an exclusive use basis for 10 or more guests for private parties, family get-togethers, educational groups and musical gatherings.
