  1. Putting your name on a waiting list for a bed at the hostel, pending cancellations
  2. Investigating other B & B accommodation options from the following:
  3. Each applicant is responsible for their own reservations / accommodation

Entrants to the Ridgeway Walk, whether YHA members or not, can stay overnight at Streatley YH, Hill House, Reading Road, Streatley, Reading, Berks, RG8 9JJ (phone: 01491 872278) on the Friday and Saturday of the walk. See the Streatley Map for location.

An evening meal for the Friday can be ordered in advance, or on the day provided you order it before 6pm. The meal will be served at 7pm.

If ordered in advance, packed breakfasts can be provided for consumption before the coach arrives or on the coach on Saturday morning. Tea and coffee will be available before the coach arrives.

Evening meals on the Saturday should be booked in advance but, unlike Friday night, the meals will be available as and when walkers require them between the hours of 7pm. and 10pm. Please do not book an evening meal if you think that you might finish after 10pm (also please bear in mind that you will need some time to recover before eating) .
