Property Description

Edens Yard Backpackers is quirky, Camino inspired Eco hostel/bunkhouse hybrid just a short leafy lane from the Eden Project. Facilities at this converted stable yard include free wifi, mixed bunk rooms and a communal lounge with books, games and good company.

Self-caterers are always welcome in our courtyard kitchen. Full cooked breakfasts and evening meals are available as extra on request and may be served outside or in the conservatory. A simple toasty breakfast with tea and coffee in our cozy communal lounge is included.

We have limited parking and with your kind understanding can accept cars with pre booking only.

We enjoy a peaceful rural setting 3 miles from St Austell and 2.5 miles from the Beach at Carlyon Bay. Green Cycleways and footpaths pass our gate and we are halfway down the Cornish peninsula so go explore East or West from here. Cyclists might like to know that we are a 60 mile 1 day ride from Lands End.

This has been my favorite hostel! the host is beyond accommodating and offers hearty and delicious meals for a small cost(upon request). It's simple yet luxurious amd provides the space to truly chill amidst the beauty of the natural world in Cornwall. It is also very conveniently located near Eden Project. I wish I could have stayed longer here. Thank you for creating an amazing magical space!!

Easily my favourite hostel experience so far. Julia and Neil go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. Having a chat over the fire at the end of the day is always a highlight.
