YHA Boggle Hole

Mill Beck, Fylingthorpe, Whitby North Yorkshire YO22 4UQ 0845 371 9504

We say

Tucked away in a converted mill in a wooded cove, just a mile outside Robin Hood's Bay, YHA Boggle Hole has always been a desirable place to stay, but it's looking even better after a  £1.2million, 8-month renovation. It's made up of two buildings – the original Mill, which has 42 beds spread across variously sized rooms, and the Crow’s Nest – which has another 40-odd beds in mostly private en-suite rooms and family rooms. The beachside location makes it a perfect place to enjoy a spot rock-pooling, fossil-hunting, beach-lounging and swimming. Failing that, why not try a spot of fishing and cook up your catch in the well-appointed self-catering kitchen? For walkers, the hostel is right on the 109-mile-long Cleveland Way (with Whitby and Scarborough easily reached on foot), while the hostel is also at the end of Wainwright's Coast-to-Coast walk, which runs all the way to St Bees in Cumbria. The character of this place, and its blissful location, see people come back again and again.
