YHA National Forest

This eco-friendly hostel offers purpose-built en suite accommodation next door to the Conkers visitor centre, ideal for cheap family breaks,  activity breaks and school trips. The building has been designed to reduce the effect of your stay on the environment, making it a great option for eco holidays. Nearby attractions include the Snibston Discovery Park, Twycross Zoo, the Museum of Brewing at Burton, and birds of prey, archery and laser clay shooting at Rosliston Forestry Centre. There are great routes in the area for walking holidays and cycling holidays. Or, for something completely different, try Llama trekking! There's plenty to do for cyclists and Just Bikes at Ashby De La Zouch offers bike hire and repairs to hostel guests. We've got plenty of stuff for your bike on-site too. If you're feeling peckish, drop in at our YHA National Forest Café for a cuppa or a snack - it's open to guests and the public too. FREE WI-FI available in communal areas for guests!

Starting at the Youth Hostel we will follow the route of the former Ashby Canal to its terminous, continuing on to Swain's Park Railway Junction, which was once a heavily industrialised area for clay and bricks. From there, onto the ancient Church Gresley Tunnel Woods, along Pit Lane with wonderful views across the Trent Valley and beyond, before we circulate the new Gresley Woods. On the return we will pass the current clay works and come back to the YHA along the former Nuneaton to Burton railway line. Good paths with some rough and possibly wet areas.
