Welcome to our hostel

Our eco-friendly National Forest hostel offers both small and large group accommodation right in the heart of the stunning National Forest. Surrounded by natural beauty and exciting outdoor activities – this hostel is perfect for educational school trips, family holidays and those on outdoor activity trips alike.

The hostel was designed with the sustainability of our planet in mind, aiming to minimalise the effects your group stay has on the environment – with solar panels, spray taps and in-built ventilation.

A particular favourite with school field trips and educational nature trips - on the hostels doorstep is a wealth of visually stunning walking and cycling routes, as well as Snibston Discovery Park, Conkers and Rosliston Forestry Centre. Take your class out into the forest to learn about nature and different plant species before embarking on a host of exciting outdoor activities together and retiring to the hostel classroom to go over everything that they have learnt and experienced together.

The hostel offers spacious, modern facilities all designed to cater to the needs of groups of all sizes. There is a comfortable lounge for you and your loved ones to unwind in after a long day of tiring outdoor activities, as well as classrooms and conference rooms available on-site especially for group use.

Fully LOtC certified, the hostel offers teachers free familiarisation trips prior to booking and one free leader space per ten students.

So whether you’re a family looking for a retreat in the forest, a group of friends looking for a relaxing getaway immersed in nature or planning an outdoor educational trip for your students – our National Forest hostel makes the perfect base camp.

Send staff over an enquiry and find out how we can help make your group trip to the forest perfect.
