The YHA Grindon with its licensed café on the Military Road provides simple but stylish accommodation geared to walkers and cyclists. Heating and lashings of hot water are provided using geothermal energy from a 300 foot borehole. This is also the source of the hostel’s crystal clear drinking water which takes 100 years to filter through the Whin Sill to the reservoir deep down.
The hostel provides three star holiday accommodation, having five bedrooms with a choice of bunk beds and en-suite twin rooms. As well as the licensed café, packed lunches are also offered.
View from the wall towards Grindon
The YHA Grindon is close to the most spectacular section of the Roman Wall which lies between Walltown Crags and Sewingshields Crags and is near to Housesteads Roman Fort. There is relatively easy access to Hadrian's Wall via Sewingshields Crags (approx. 1km) as well as being close to the C72 National Cycle Track routes.
