It is with great regret that we must inform you that we are closing Nethy Station earlier than we had planned. We intended to go on until October 2020 and see Richard into his seventies but, it is not to be and we are not accepting any further bookings.

What is Nethy Station?

Exclusive use ONLY. Nethy Station has a minimum group size of 12 and maximum of 26. The triple bunks allow budget groups to fill the house with a number of free bed spaces. We only charge for those who stay!

The kitchen is well equipped with cutlery, crockery and pans geared to group cooking.  It is a wee bit small for groups to cater individually. There is a fridge/freezer, microwave and an automatic water boiler. There is a good sized drying room and constant hot water.

The dining/sitting room leads off into a sunny ‘Waiting Room’ which provides a second public space, with an old piano, overlooking the platform where the barrel style BBQ can be used on summer evenings. It has a bar area with optics and a beer pump set up for the enjoyment of those who order in the Real Ale!

What makes the Station different has been the addition of ‘Narnia’ and ‘The Shed’ for larger groups!


Here is a simple plan  bunksof the hostel showing the bedspaces in the Station to assist leaders to allocate rooms because it is exclusive use – you can use the rooms as you wish! The video tour is on You Tube and you are welcome to comment on that through our dedicated Facebook page. We recommend that all visitors check out the video so there is no confusion with the larger, old property which has been sold!


Nethy Station is not very accessible due to its triple bunks and tight corners. But, we welcome everyone and will try to help where possible. We have got an Accessibility Guide which is an ongoing project so if you want more information please get in touch using our Non-Booking Contact Form .

If you wish to book please see How to Book , where you will find booking conditions and a link to the contact form. We will back to you as soon as possible with a provisional contract which allows you to hold the dates and a couple of weeks to sort out staff, permission, interest, funding etc.!

What Do We Pay & When?

You will receive a provisional contract with a holding date by which time the deposit should be paid, which you can also see on our calendar

Once your deposit has been received, your booking is secure. The remaining payment is due one month before your arrival. We do appreciate for some groups this is not always possible, in which case all we ask is that you simply to keep in touch.

AccessibilityAt Nethy Station we do all that we can to make life easier for those with accessibility needs. Unfortunately, the layout of the old building has left us severely restricted as to what we can do. The main problem is that the toilet doors are very narrow but there are opportunities for this with limited mobility to join  a group. Therefore, we have an access statement here  which we hope will help. Please contact us using our non-booking contact form with any questions.
