Woody's Top Youth Hostel - one of the very best!
Woody's Top Youth Hostel - one of the very best!
Woody's Top Youth Hostel, on the Lincolnshire Wolds, was opened in 1948. It replaced Farforth hostel, just over the fields. Its name derives from "Mr Wood's Top Barn", which is about all it was when the YHA took it on. For many years it was extremely spartan, water being brought up a (very steep) hill in a wheeled chariot, and toilets being of the agricultural variety.

Nowadays Woody's Top is a favourite with all types of hosteller; it has retained its simplicity and quiet, but is extremely comfortable and well-appointed, with small rooms ideally suited to families. It's well worth a diversion into a beautiful, if relatively little known, part of England.
