Visitors’ Comments

Have a look at some of the recent comments visitors have left in a book at the Hostel:

The accommodation was ideal for 16 ladies spending a weekend together.  The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the studio was brilliant for our yoga session and dance class.  Beds were very comfy and everything was spotlessly clean…

Facilities as good and better than other similar accommodation. Kitchen well equipped for large group. Beds comfortable. Studio great facility, ideal for jigsaw making and games.  Wood burners are great.  Views would be hard to beat, constantly changing. Walks from the door…

It was great to be able to walk from the door for miles and get a bus back so far!  The area is a gem for walking; so much to choose from. Pub is delightful and friendly on the doorstep.

Thank you for a wonderful welcome and a peaceful, comfortable night at this hostel.  We had all the equipment we needed; the views are just amazing.  The beds are comfortable and the duvets are cosy.  What an amazing treat to wake up in this beautiful landscape.

Thank you for such a lovely clean hostel.  We had a wonderful weekend.  Beautiful views and house.  We especially enjoyed the woodburning stove.

Ten of us came to compete in a X-runner mud run and made a weekend out of it in Bretton.  Quite incredible location, wonderful facilities… Would (and will) return in a heartbeat.

A fantastic hostel, very well equipped and the Studio was the icing on the cake – loved by teenagers and adults alike….  You’ve done a wonderful job of this place – thank you and we’ll be back!

We’ve had a wonderful weekend in this beautiful hostel and enjoyed some beautiful trail running from the front door.  Thanks for making this such a welcoming place to stay.

Wonderful weekend …. The setting is perfect; we have all loved it, the setting has really worked its magic on us, we’ve watched the light move across the landscape, there’s been walks, lots of making things in the Studio, lovely food, bat-watching, birdsong, time for so many conversations, time to unwind and time to be inspired.  We intend to return, we love it here.

Thank you for a fantastic stay at Bretton hostel!  Everyone is in agreement that it far exceeded our expectations!  The views are amazing, the hostel was immaculate when we arrived and the hostel and studio suited our needs perfectly.  I’m sure we will be back soon!

Well above expectations, we hope to come back again and hope to bring more friends with us next year (as we will be back).  Love your kitchen with the view I could die for, and the log fire…. Thank you very much, we will not forget our two walking days…

As Delboy would say ‘This is one of my most favouritist hostels in England’.  I stayed here 25 nights with the YHA – this is my first as an I.H. but God willing not my last.  Beautifully restored.  Well done.

Great facility, so well equipped and in an excellent location for good walking.  We all enjoyed your welcoming hostel.
