Yorkshire Bunk Barn, Bank House Farm Hostel "friendliest and best value"

This is a lovely little bunk barn near Whitby (2 miles from Glaisdale & 20 minutes drive from Whitby), North Yorkshire, that sleeps 10-12. It is well equipped, welcoming and extremely cosy and warm, having been recently converted from a cart shed to high standards. It is in an extremely beautiful setting in the heart of the North York Moors National Park on a working organic livestock farm, and attached to the main farm house.
