  • Description


    Our YHA hostel is a lovely cosy house on the edge of Exmoor National Park. It has 32 beds in 8 bedrooms and a large area of well maintained gardens. Minehead itself is a bustling seaside resort on the West Somerset coast with great views over to South Wales. YHA is a charity that accepts volunteers to help us maintain our locations and help with the services we provide to our guests. So you could be assisting us with cleaning, gardening, on reception and even painting!

    A great stay with us in a peaceful environment, so we are popular with students looking for a placement and active people wanting to make a difference for the YHA. And the chance to live in an amazing place.

  • Help


    Every day is different, so hopefully you will be adaptable but always willing to assist us. Volunteering is usually a few hours per day, with 2 days off per week.
