Long Description:
Grade II listed, Youlgreave's Youth Hostel was once the old Co-op village store and it still retains some of the original characteristics. Above the main entrance between two pairs of semi-circular headed plain sash windows is a semi-circular headed niche decorated with a carving of a beehive (the Co-op symbol) and the inscription 'Erected AD 1887, Established 1872'. The fanlights of the two ground floor windows and the entrance door have white glass with inscriptions in gold letters, they read from east to west 'GROCERIES AND PROVISIONS', 'CO-OPERATIVE STORES', and 'DRAPERIES AND CLOTHING'. The first floor windows are pairs of plain sash windows with drip mouldings above. The front entrance is reached by steps up to a paved slope. There is an iron railing to the west and a stone wall to the east.
Rooms are named after the store departments and there are interesting displays to give you a flavour of the period.

08.00 - 10.00 hrs, and 17.00 - 22.00 hrs.
