    Nice place with an artsy feel. Clean beds and facilities plus an amazing shower! The hostess was very friendly and helpful and was there when we needed her. Long story short, everything you can expect from a proper hostel.

There is a self catering kitchen, tea/coffee provided. Great place for cycling on and off road, hiking, climbing, wild swims, wildlife, archeology, high open moors and tors, chill out picnics by ancient woodlands, stone circles and rivers. Moretonhampstead is a lively village and home to many artists, craftspeople and musicians, so you may catch a music session in the pub and visit the gallery and studios.
