Full cooking facilities are provided for our guests in our spacious and newly fitted modern kitchen. Available to use are an oven, hob, microwave, toaster, fridge and all the pots and pans you could need. The use of these self catering facilities can be an excellent way of making your holiday budget stretch a little further. Free tea and coffee is available.


The comfortable lounge area has enough seating for all of your group to relax and unwind in after a hard day’s activity in the local area. If you’re looking for a night in we have a large screen TV for all to watch as well as a selection of board games for guests to borrow. Books and maps are available to help plan what the next day will bring, along with the notice board which provides up to date information on the hostel and local events.

Bike Storage

If you’re cycling the coast to coast or just on holiday with bikes, we have secure indoor storage available for all bikes in our cellar. This is easily accessed straight from the garden making it convenient at the end of a long day’s cycling. Bikes can also be locked individually and locks are available from the reception desk for a small deposit. There is a maintenance area with a selection of tools available and a sink for washing muddy boots and equipment.

Drying Room

Also located in the cellar is the drying room. There are racks for boots and gear as well as hangers for jackets and pants so there’s no need to put wet gear back on the next morning!


There is outdoor seating available for relaxing in our private garden when the sun is shining. This can be easily accessed from the dining room. Also outside are bike racks for temporary storage and a hose pipe if the day’s activity has left you and your bike a little muddy! Directly across the road from the hostel is a grass area for guests to use if a little more space is required. We will happily even lend you a frisbie!

We have off street parking available for up to three vehicles.

Baggage Transfers

If you’re cycling the c2c but don’t want to carry all your own luggage we can help! We are able to collect your bags from your previous accommodation so they are waiting for you when you arrive at Wayfarers Hostel. We can then move them on the next day for you so you don’t have to haul everything over the Pennines, leaving you to enjoy the ride! Price varies depending on distance and can suit all group sizes.
