Book your 2021 holiday with confidence.

guaranteed refunds or re-booking for holidays affected by covid-19.


We have really enjoyed welcoming families and small groups back to the holiday hostel over the summer, all within Covid guidelines.

Now that restrictions have eased we are able to accommodate larger groups!

And…depending on availability…we can also now rent out rooms to individuals, couples and smaller groups and you’ll share the facilities with the other guests – back to being a ‘traditional’ hostel. 

The best way to check availability is to contact us directly. You can call me (Matt) on my mobile or the landline or email matt@earbyhostel.co.uk


Your stay comes with our complimentary concierge service. You tell us what you like to do, and we’ll find the best local places for you to visit during your stay. Whether it’s socially distant tree top climbing, wild swimming spots or family-friendly walks. We’re keeping up to date with the local attractions that are opening up every day so we can provide ideas for your stay.

Waterfall Cottage

Next door to the holiday hostel you will find Waterfall Cottage, a lovely holiday cottage that is ideal for couples or families with children.

Our Local Attractions Are Opening!

Explore the historic market town of Skipton with its medieval castle, woodland walk and canal tours or get the adrenaline pumping with mountain biking through Gisburn Forest.


We will always try out best to find accommodation for the walkers who pass us on their way along the Pennine Way, or simply need a night’s rest on their journey. It could be a bed in Waterfall Cottage next door, or a night when the hostel hasn’t been booked by a private group.

Please contact Matt directly on 07791903454 to check availability. Hopefully we’ll be back to a bit more normalcy later in the year, and you can use the booking system to reserve your beds for your 2022 adventures!
