This Easter, come and join us on our trip to YHA Langdon Beck, as we explore Upper Teesdale in the North Pennines. Be prepared to be "wowed" by magnificent waterfalls and spectacular scenery in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - a real chance to get away from it all and immerse yourself in splendid isolation (but with a cracking country pub just ten minutes walk away!) 

YHA Langdon Beck is sited in the North Pennine AONB overlooking the MoorHouse Upper Teesdale National Nature Reserve that stretches across towards Cross Fell the highest point in the Pennines, and Cumbria. The Hostel is modern eco adapted, well equipped and isolated (but 10mins walk to a Pub!), 6 miles NW of Middleton-in-Teesdale, 16 miles to the historic market town of Barnard Castle and 30 miles from Darlington Rail Station.

The walks on offer provide an opportunity to view some of the most famous and spectacular Waterfalls in England, Cauldron Snout, High & Low Force where the River Tees plummets over the Whin Sill geological feature that forms an important part of Hadrians Wall further north.

Close-by there is a cultural alternative of the awesome ruins of Barnard castle itself standing high over the Tees, a stronghold of Richard III and the Bowes Museum a beautiful french style chateau housing Fine & Decorative Art collections of national importance, and just to the east of Middleton is Hamsterley Forest Park with 2000hecs of forest tracks and in particular highly lauded Mountain Bike Blue, Red & Black Trails. So this event is not just for walkers! Bring your bikes or hire one as well (will need a bike leader to join the event)!
