Welcome back! It has been a busy few weeks since we have been able to re-open, particularly at weekends, so thank you for supporting us. September is now fully booked, but there is still some availability in October and November for group bookings. We’re very sorry, but we will not be taking individual bed bookings until April 2022.
The following weekends are available for sole use bookings:
8 - 10 October and 22 - 24 October

Plus there is some availability for 2 night stays mid-week. Please contact us for dates.
Please be assured that we are being flexible with all bookings that are affected by cancellations due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Formerly YHA Bretton Hostel is now run as an Independent Hostel.
Bretton Hostel is located on Bretton Edge, near Eyam in the Peak District National Park. Perched at 1200 feet above sea level, it sits within three acres of meadows and small copses and is surrounded by fields, with glorious far reaching views over the gritstone edges and moors of the Dark Peak to the north and the limestone plateau of the White Peak to the south. The tranquility and sense of space experienced here is immense.
The hostel is available for groups who would like exclusive use of the facilities throughout the year and is available to individuals and small groups on Monday to Thursday nights from April to September and occasionally at other times by arrangement. An eco friendly, timber framed studio has recently been built in the hostel grounds. The studio, with its wild flower turf roof and large picture windows looking out over breathtaking views, is available to groups when they book the hostel on a sole occupancy basis. It provides groups with an excellent opportunity to use the hostel for activities and courses, or it can simply be used as additional space to relax in. Attached to the studio is a secure cycle store and composting toilet.
Bretton Hostel is the perfect base for a wide range of outdoor activities the Peak District has to offer or instead wind down in the tranquil garden and take in the views. There are walks and cycle rides for all levels straight from the door, numerous well known climbing crags within a 10 mile radius, paragliding on Eyam and Bradwell Edges, caving in Stoney Middleton and beyond. The famous tourist attractions of Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, plus the villages and towns of Eyam, Hathersage, Castleton, Bakewell and Buxton, are all within easy travelling distance.
