A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
If your idea of a stay in a Youth Hostel is of an uncomfy bunk in a dilapidated hut, just check out the YHA accommodation at The Sill! (https://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/yha-the-sill-at-hadrians-wall).
There are 4 more hostels in Northumberland and others in various locations around the UK, all offering a range of accommodation. A great way to experience a different area of the country, particularly if you are on a budget.
The YHA Festival of Walking (https://www.yha.org.uk/festival-of-walking/social-walks) aims to offer a “supported and safe place to get involved with walking, meet other walkers and build confidence walking in rural locations.”
This reflects the goals HWF had in mind when it began all those years ago and continues to promote. We are delighted to support this YHA initiative as we work together to make walking accessible to as many people as possible.
Check out what the YHA has on offer and don’t forget our walks around Allendale and Haltwhistle on 1st and 2nd October.
