Grinton Lodge Youth Hostel is an impressive former gentleman's shooting lodge located in picturesque Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales. Set in its own extensive grounds within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the site offers camping pod accommodation for walkers, cyclists, couples, families and groups. Grinton Lodge includes a comfortable lounge with log fire, TV room, games room, drying room, self-catering kitchen and a beautiful garden with adventure playground. The hostel is fully licensed and offers great food everyday.
Our camping pods are situated in our wooded paddock, with views over the surrounding moorland. Our pods have lighting and heating and mains electric, car parking is only 25 yds away, you will have full use of the hostel's facilities, with toilets and showers within the main building.
Our average pitch size is about 10m x 10m, though if we are quiet then there is loads of space, and you get to use our fantastic new shower and toilet facilities along with the ground floor facilities inside the Hostel, great for rainy days!
We serve a buffet-style cooked/continental breakfast from 7.30 to 9am (£4.99 for adults or £2.99 for under 10s), and offer packed lunches (£4.50 for under 10s and £5.50 adult price), both of which can be booked on arrival, or prebooked. Home-cooked evening meals are served from 6pm to 8pm, with last orders taken at reception by 7pm (prices vary).

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
