YHA camping, glamping and cabins, UK

As well as hostels, YHA offer a superb range of camping and glamping facilities dotted around England and Wales, in cities, coastal and countryside areas - some are located close to family-friendly attractions. YHA provides fun and affordable camping and glamping options when travelling with the little ones, whether it's for a one-night stopover, a short family break, or a longer holiday.

Fantastic, family-friendly campsites are available at some of the best locations across England and Wales. This means it's even easier for you to get out and about and explore the great outdoors. As a camper, you’ll have access to all hostel facilities including home cooked meals. Whether you’re freshening up after your night under the stars or you want to get cosy in the relaxing lounge, you and your loved ones will feel every bit as welcomed as the hostel guests.

Camping Pods, Huts and Cabins
Get the comfort of a timber roof over your head but still feel close to the great outdoors with YHA’s standard or deluxe pods, cabins and huts. These appealing, insulated structures come in a range of shapes and sizes, but they all keep you and your family protected from the elements!

All camping pods, huts and cabins come with beds and bedding as standard, so you don't have to bring your camping gear with you. The deluxe pods, huts and cabins go the extra mile. As well as the beds and bedding, you'll get a kitchenette with fridge, microwave and sink, and an en-suite wet room with shower, toilet and basin. Perfect for family breaks. 

Are you keen on camping but don’t like roughing it? YHA’s fully-kitted out bell tents, safari tents, tipis and camping barns bring new meaning to the term “glamping”. YHA offer four great options for family glampers; beautiful standard and premium bell tents, quirky tipis, safari tents and mighty camping barns. Whichever you and your family choose, you're sure to enjoy your stay in the heart of nature.

The camping and glamping facilities at YHA are the perfect option for UK family holidays without having to break the bank, but with the bonus of many home comforts.
