There are over 100 properties to choose from across England and Wales
Christmas and New Year holidays are the perfect time for getting friends and family together in one place. But often it can be hard to find somewhere big enough, or it can be too expensive.

So why not hire a YHA property exclusively for yourself, for that perfect Christmas getaway or New Year’s party? With YHA Exclusive Hire you can take the whole place for yourself from as little as £6 per person per night! Our properties offer self-catering kitchens as standard, but if you want us to do the food – no problem! Just add a food service bolt-on at the checkout when making your order online.
For instance:
Castleton Mews from £435 per night. (Others are from £64 per night for the whole house)
These beautiful cobbled mews are set in the grounds of YHA Castleton Losehill Hall, a newly refurbished Victorian Gothic mansion. Situated in formal gardens and 27 acres of parkland, this property is right in the heart of the Peak District National Park.

Accommodation
There are 28 beds in seven rooms - 1 x 2, 2 x 3 en-suite, 2 x 4, 1 x 4 en-suite and 1 x 8 en-suite rooms. All bed linen is provided but please remember to bring your own towels.

Most rooms are fully en-suite and other toilet and shower areas are also provided. Two of the ground floor rooms have fully accessible facilities.

There is central heating throughout the building.

Dining
The dining room, kitchen and lounge are combined into one open plan social space which can seat 28 people in total.

The kitchen facilities include two large gas ranges (four hobs and one large oven each), microwave, toaster, water boiler, fridges and a good range of kitchen utensils, baking trays, crockery and cutlery sufficient for up to 28 people. Tea towels, cloths, black bun bags, recycling bags and washing up liquid are provided.

Other Facilities
The lounge with leather sofas and armchairs is combined with the kitchen areas and works as a convivial social hub. There are picnic tables outside in the courtyard so if the sun is shining you can dine there. The main Youth Hostel site has a variety of lounges, bars, full restaurant/catering facilities and a games area, all of which are usually available to the Mews residents.

Garden
We have a fully enclosed courtyard and there is usually access to the main hostel parkland. In total there are 27 acres of woods and fields for you to explore!

Parking
There is space on site for eight cars.

You can save up to £30 by becoming a member of the y.h.a (cost from £5-£15) (No age limit!) and a range of other benefits

Yes, I did notice but that's what the listing said. It may be you can get there in an off road vehicle. Looking again it says 'restrictions on vehicle movements have been made by the landowners' so it doesn't mean there's no road (sorry)

jasee, do you work for YHA?

These look like the "remote houses" they use for horror films, when a group of people get together for one reason or another and they all end up dead.

I ain't paying to die :P

These are real nice! Not what you'd expect a from a youth hostel

Not even when it's cheap?

one thing I searched the site for and couldn't find- when is "check in and check out" time?
at these prices, what's to stop folks renting these houses, then just decorating it and having their wedding reception there?
still a hot deal and some amazing sites

The check in and out times are here

exclusive-hire.yha.org.uk/nee…ons

'Arrival and Departure
On the day of arrival, the hostel is available from 4.00pm. On the day of departure you are asked to vacate by 12 noon.
It may sometimes be possible to book an early check-in from 2pm and/or a late check-out to depart by 2pm, subject to availability. Early check-in and late check-out are each available at an additional cost of £1 per bed available at the property'.

I'd think some of the places would be ideal for wedding receptions

It says if you're a member you get £30 off. Membership £15 so it's a £15 discount on prices

Why do you think they take the money upfront? oO

Possibly, Tesco clubcard vouchers could be used in the ratio 3:1 to pay for accomodation.

At least they can be used for membership of the Y.H.A

Good timing, as I'm searching for a large property for a big birthday - looked on one though, and it slept up to 30, and there were three toilets - ugh! Still, for the price, definitely worth considering - thanks for posting.

Glad I could help someone
From what I've seen you need to check what the interiors look like. Some of them do look very YHA, bunk beds and the like. Of course, this may not be important to you.
Also you need to check the booking dates very carefully. The prices can vary enormously.
