We stayed with friends while walking a section of the Pennine Way. Excellent comfortable hostel with really friendly, helpful staff and good facilities. Breakfasts were good and filling - and on the day we shared a packed lunch, it was good too. The hostel does an "evening meal club" which looked great but we went instead to the Langdon Beck hotel which serves excellent food and drink. It's 12 miles across the Pennines to Duffton through some of the most splendid scenery - climbing a waterfall on the way. An excellent reintroduction to YHA hostels.
