Ok, so we appreciate that if your vision is a white wedding at a 5 star hotel or on a sun drenched beach, we are possibly not the venue for you. However, if you enjoy beautiful countryside and have a generally more rural, outdoorsy vision for your wedding we could totally be the place.

You could just book the whole building, including the campsite for extra camping-type guests, and we will be very happy to help with the details.We do also have a great range of modern and classic cars which could be used as wedding cars if required.

Family Get Togethers

If you need a venue for an event such as a birthday or family get together, we are an ideal low-key venue. You can hire out the whole building and utilise the campsite should you need more than the 31 beds in the hostel. We have ample kitchen facilities and you would, of course, be very welcome in the Baa or could utilise the private sitting  room/lounge facilities in the hostel.

Cycling, Rambing and Sports

This is a wonderful area for cycling, walking, hiking and just enjoying the outdoors. With our new secure cycle storage, you can also safely store your much-loved bikes safely while you stay with us, or just pop in for a pint on route.

Clubs and Associations

We have hosted several clubs and associations for weekends away. If you are an adult or junior sports club, such as rugby or football, there are a lot of clubs in the Northeast to play on tour. We have also hosted more unusual associations, including several visits from ghost hunting associations who use us as a base to visit the sites of local hauntings. We also sponser our Godson's Minis Rugby team, hence the photo.
