School & Youth Group Accommodation

Cote Ghyll Mill is the ideal base for school and youth group residential trips. The natural environment provides an abundance of outdoor activities on the doorstep.

Accommodation for School and Youth Groups in North Yorkshire

Cote Ghyll Mill is a very different type of group holiday accommodation in North Yorkshire. As our name suggests, we’re a converted mill, with all the space and capacity that suggests.

We’re ideally placed for schools and youth groups wanting to enjoy the best of the North Yorks Moors, with most outdoor activities reachable by foot rather than bus or coach.

We have 14 newly refurbished, en-suite bedrooms sleeping 56 people in bunk beds or 61 people using the five rollout beds located in the bedrooms. All bed linen is provided for you to make up the beds. We welcome primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and youth groups for residential stays.

Outdoor Activities

Included in your stay is the use of our new campfire and bushcrafts area. Set in a secluded, private location adjacent to Cod Beck stream and the Old Mill waterfall, yet only 30m from the Mill, this area provides a great outdoor learning environment. It’s also the perfect spot for campfire singing and toasting marshmallows!

The new shelter building area is privately located in deciduous woodland opposite the Mill. It’s a great place for teaching youngsters about shelter building and our natural habitats.

Please arrange access to the campfire/bushcrafts and shelter building areas before your group visits.

Food & Drink

Any school or youth group staying at our North Yorkshire youth hostel-style accommodation will want a hearty meal before and after their day’s activities. At Cote Ghyll, we provide a delicious hot and cold buffet breakfast, packed lunch and home-cooked three-course evening meal. We design menus to suit your group’s requirements and, with advance notice, we can cater for any special diets. Have a look at our sample group breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal menus.

Want to keep the kids entertained in the evening? Ask us about arranging a disco and opening the tuck shop.
