For many visitors, particularly younger ones, the hostel is their first experience of North Northumberland and its stunning coast.
They can participate in a range of activities including:

Leaders of groups particularly value the safety of the large paddock, the proximity to Seahouses, the choice of eating venues and the number of natural and interesting places to visit.
