A £1.2 million revamp has lovingly reimagined this sea-view hostel inside a heritage mill, which lies hidden in the folds of a bay a mile south of Robin Hood's Bay like a ship's stowaway. The main building is a cosy warren of rooms above a cool cafe with a log-burner and outside decking; up on the hill there's a newer block – the Crow's Nest.

The hostel isn't accessible by car or public transport; park at the top of the hill and walk the 10 minutes down to the beach, or you can walk from Robin Hood's Bay when the tide is out.

Quick description via booking.com

Situated alongside the coast in North York Moors National Park, YHA Boggle Hole is next to a bay that was once an infamous smuggler’s cove. The property is set over 2 buildings, including an old mill and there are picnic areas and a courtyard. Guests can search for fossils along the beach, and have fun exploring the rock pools for aquatic life. The charming fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay is just 10 minutes’ drive away. YHA Boggle Hole has a peaceful garden and a lounge for guests to relax in. Free private parking is possible on site, and Wi-Fi is also available. Some rooms are set in the Crow's Nest, which is on the hillside and offers great valley views. The historic Whitby Bay is just 20 minutes away by car. Guests can enjoy world-famous fish and chips at Harry Ramsdens in Scarborough, 30 minutes’ drive away. The majority of rooms contain bunk beds.
