YHA Thurlby is a 15th century former village forge with a lovely lawned garden and orchard. It is located in a peaceful spot in the centre of an unspoilt Lincolnshire village. The homely former forge is full of character and has both Victorian and Georgian additions to the building – perfect for history buffs!
The Fens are natural cycling country and Rutland Water, an important area for bird life, offers a great choice of watersports and walks – perfect for activity breaks and walking and cycling holidays. Visit Belvoir Castle, Burghley House and nearby market towns for a day out exploring.
We have the whole hostel to ourselves and Alan will be doing the catering as usual. If we have a full house (20 beds) it will cost around £25 each for the weekend plus around £10 for food.
