Deepdale Groups Hostel

Located in the heart of Thorpeness the Dolphin is a traditional village inn offering good food.

Opening Season

Deepdale Granary Group Hostel offers self catering group accommodation sleeping 18 people in four bedrooms. The perfect self catering group accommodation for a group visit to Norfolk, whatever your interest in this ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.

The area is famous for its nature and bird reserves, especially Titchwell and Holkham. The village church, with its Norman Font and Saxon Roundtower, is part of a chain of ancient churches along the coastline, with many other fascinating stately homes and historical buildings close by. Admiral Lord Nelson was born and learnt to sail in the area.

The hostel offers group accommodation in two dorms of 6, a dorm of 4 and a twin room, giving you sleeping room flexibility. Those staying need to bring sleeping bags or duvets and their towels, all other bedding is supplied. (Duvets can be hired)

Downstairs in the group hostel, there is a fully equipped kitchen for self catering and a large common room, perfect for socialising, relaxing or working. There are two showers, two toilets and two wash areas, plus a drying cupboard which is always warm.

Deepdale Granary Group Hostel was built in the 17th Century, and converted 15 years ago into a group hostel. Two years ago the hostel was refitted. Groups that have used Deepdale Granary Group Hostel for accommodation in the past include school groups, family parties, bird watching clubs, historical interest, scout and art groups.

Because the hostel accommodates 18 people, groups larger than 18 may overflow into both Deepdale Backpackers Hostel and Deepdale Camping, however they will not be able to take more than 8 of the beds in Deepdale Backpackers Hostel.

Due to the age and style of Deepdale Granary it has been impossible to adapt it for wheel chair access. We are improving many of the other disabled facilities and two of the dorms in Deepdale Backpackers Hostel are wheel chair friendly.

We are an eco friendly group hostel, Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme, for more information please visit our website.
