The Youth Hostel, Bracken Tor and accommodation in the Filter House. We are members of YHA, Hostelling International and English Tourist Council.


YHA Okehampton consists of two sites on the south side of Okehampton Town on the edge of Dartmoor. The original site, The Goods Shed, is adjacent to Okehampton Station, whereas Bracken Tor, which features Bracken Tor House and The Filter House, is further out of town, right on the edge of Dartmoor.

Bedrooms: All of our accommodation is centrally heated, the bedrooms contain bunk beds and are either 2, 4, 6 or 8 bedded rooms. Some rooms have a private bathroom.

Catering: There are dining room facilities offering full board catering for groups and individuals, as well as self catering kitchens.

Meeting rooms: During school term times both our sites benefit from communal rooms which are allocated to specific groups. When the hostel is not in use by groups these rooms are available for use by everyone, and can be booked for conferences.

Grounds: Our sites also have large outdoor spaces providing seating areas, activity facilities and recreational areas.

At both Okehampton and Bracken Tor there are small camping areas, allowing for tents to be used.  These can be booked through YHA or Pitch-up booking engines.

Open all year round
