Budget accommodation in Britain used to involve all sorts of holiday horrors – from cheap and tacky caravan parks and beige motor inns to rundown backstreet dives that you wouldn't let your dog stay in. Thankfully, British budget accommodation has come along way since then, with the birth of retro airstream caravan parks, luxury roadside inns, boutique B&B's and camping's posh equivalent 'glamping'. But there is one budget accommodation that we've all undoubtedly relied on throughout the years – the YHA.
Their premise is simple: cheap-as-you-like, no frills accommodation, all across the UK. You can pick from staying in a castle, a lodge, or even a Georgian mansion - and it won't break the bank. We've got over 17 YHA properties listed on our site, and that's because they all offer something you can't put a price on: location. A coastal farmhouse on the Pembrokeshire coast in St David's, a former shepherd's bothy high up in the western fells of the Lake District and a grade II listed Georgian Villa in Salisbury are but a few of their ever-growing number of affordable and friendly accommodation in stunning UK locations.
The YHA are giving Cool Places readers a whopping 10% off bookings on all Cool Places YHA properties and all other YHA hostels.* To redeem the offer, just use type in the following code into the promo box when booking online.
