Not just for backpackers, YHA – renowned for its high-quality, low-cost hostels across more than 150 locations around England and Wales – is also a great option for families. Especially since these days it also offers camping and glamping.
Whether you choose the coast, the countryside or a city, the YHA provides affordable accommodation for those travelling with kids, in comfortable modern or refurbished hostels, some of them oozing character. Some are even baby- and toddler-friendly. Many have private rooms as well as dorms, often sleeping up to six, while shared kitchens in most mean you can save money on eating out.
Alternatively, some hostels – mainly countryside options – also allow camping, and some even have glamping accommodation, camping pods, barns and huts.
