The Youth Centre
The Youth Centre, situated beside Rydal Beck and over the bridge from our Tea Shop, has undergone a massive transformation in 2012.
We are delighted that we now have a fabulous facility which sleeps a total of twenty nine in bunk bed dormitory style accommodation in a total of four rooms. The two smaller dorms are en-suite. In addition there are showers and toilets on the ground floor and a communal kitchen and common room on the first floor.

This facility is in great demand with a wide variety of different groups. Because Rydal Hall generously offers a 10% discount to youth, Church and charity groups we recommend that you contact us without delay to check availability over the coming months.
