Bellingham YHA,
NE48 2BS,
01434 220258,

A great bunk barn and a very relaxed approach from the owner. There are a number of bunk rooms upstairs. I was given a room to myself whilst the only other people staying, two walkers who were together, were given their own room. I thought this was a nice touch. Two good showers downstairs next to separate loos. Good, spacious kitchen with tea and coffee. Nice sitting room. Easily accessible to the shops in Bellingham and the visitor centre a little further up the road. The reception is at the house immediately opposite on the other side of the road. Well signposted.

Expected walking time: 6h 29min

Shitlington Crags (the farm of Scyttel or his sons if you’re curious about the name)
