Youth Hostelling in the Yorkshire Dales

27 December 2011

The Scouts are going Youth Hostelling in the Yorkshire Dales from 10th to 12th February 2012. Traveling by minibus, we will be braving the winter for some outdoor adventures.

“Situated three miles north of Horton-in-Ribblesdale in the Yorkshire Dales and it is ideally located for the Three Peaks of Yorkshire (Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough).”

Selside is the University of Leeds Yorkshire Dales Outdoor Adventure Centre. The centre is situated three miles north of Horton-in-Ribblesdale in the Yorkshire Dales and it is ideally located for the Three Peaks of Yorkshire (Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough). The centre also sits on a wonderful example of a limestone pavement.

The sleeping arrangements are similar to that of a youth hostel, with four rooms sleeping a total of 23 people. The centre is fully equipped with beds, common room facilities, drying room, central heating, shower facilities and a fully fitted kitchen designed for catering for large groups.
