Losehill Hall near Castleton toreopen as a Youth Hostel

A former national park learning centre will reopen as a youth hostel after a £2m refurbishment.

Losehill Hall near Castleton in Derbyshire was sold off by the Peak District National Park Authority as part of its response to 28 per cent budget cuts by the coalition Government.

YHA, which took over the hall, pledged it would continue to provide educational provision at the grade II-listed Gothic Victorian mansion.

The budget accommodation charity said it had transformed the building into an environmental learning, residential and activity centre for young people and holiday-makers.

YHA said the centre’s future as a youth hostel is now secure for at least 20 years.

The hostel has 144 beds in 36 rooms and it is expected the accommodation and resources will be used by about 22,000 people each year.

The existing Castleton Youth Hostel in the nearby village, which YHA says is outdated, will now close.
