good to go

Book the whole holiday hostel for your safe family getaway!

An independent hostel located on The Pennine Way.

Exclusive use of the holiday hostel for groups of 1 or 2 families.

This summer we transformed the holiday hostel into a private holiday rental so that we could offer fun family holidays in line with government guidance and maintain high health & safety levels. 

It has been so popular that we are now offering private groups stays for the rest of 2020.

In line with the current guidance, we can offer the hostel for private bookings of one family/bubble or two families can combine to form their own holiday bubble.

Spend some quality time with grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins. Or getaway with your best friends.

The entire hostel could be yours for just £180 per night (minimum of 2 nights).


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.

good to go

We've been certified as "Good To Go" by the tourist organisations of Great Britain & Northern Ireland for our efforts to keep Waterfall Cottage and Earby Holiday Hostel safe and clean.


Whilst we are now offering private bookings in the holiday hostel 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.

For the rest of 2020 please contact Matt directly on 07791903454 to check availability. Hopefully we’ll be back to a bit more normalcy next year, and you can use the booking system to reserve your beds for your 2021 adventures!


We’re hoping to be back to business as usual by 2021, so you can book your stay for next year. Please check availability and book your stay through our online portal.

If you would like to book the entire hostel please contact us directly.
