The hostel is closed until April but there is a caretaker on duty to take your booking. The hostel is spotlessly clean and toasty warm (thanks to the ground source heating that also heats the Birchcliffe centre next door).  There is a kitchen for self catering.

We hope to see lots of Walkers are Welcome towns at this special anniversary event.

To mark the 10th anniversary and promote the event, Wally Woodcock, a local musician offered to write a song for the towns and when they heard it they thought it was great to share with others. Wally wanted the chorus to comprise a number of voices and he asked the local community choir to sing the final choruses.

After Christmas they will complete a full presentation to be uploaded with the song on to youtube but in the meantime, here is the song for you to enjoy. Click here to listen.
