Win a two-night family stay for up to six people

Fresh air, breathtaking scenery, spending precious time with your little ones - it's the stuff memories are made of and it's all right on your doorstep.

Does a family staycation sound like just the ticket this summer? YHA are giving away a free getaway for you and your family at a YHA property of your choice. With over 160 extraordinary locations to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect place to start your family's summer adventure.

Whether you're after enchanting scenery, outdoor activities or a city break, there's a hostel to suit every taste...

Give your little learners a head start on their next school project with a trip to York, where the streets are alive with history, from bloodthirsty Vikings to enterprising Romans - or walk in the footsteps of the Great Bard himself in Stratford-upon-Avon. Budding brainiacs will love YHA's converted grain house in Bristol, just a stone's throw from Brunel's SS Great Britain and the At-Bristol science centre.

Ignite their imaginations and bring their love of dinosaurs to life with a fossil-hunting expedition along the Jurassic Coast, with the scenic Devon town of Beer as your base, leaving no stone unturned as you scour the beach for prehistoric treasure. 

Or if your explorers are craving something even wilder, you can reconnect with nature (and each other) at YHA Ilam Hall in the heart of the Peak District, where the kids will have 84 acres of National Trust-managed parkland to run around. Then there's YHA Wasdale Hall on the shores of Wastwater Lake in Cumbria, which is so remote there's no phone signal - not that they'll notice.

Whatever sort of holiday you choose - be it urban, rural or coastal - YHA has accommodation to suit families of all types. There are even games rooms and social areas with free WiFi, so rainy days needn't put a dampener on your time together.

And when it comes to eating, you'll be spoiled for choice. Self-catering kitchens mean you can warm a bottle, prepare a favourite bedtime snack, or even feed ravenous teenagers at any time of the day or night. And if you fancy a night off from cooking, hostel restaurants and café bars offer hearty meals at reasonable prices. Best of all, children under ten eat free from a kids' menu that's sure to please even the fussiest of eaters.

YHA's everyday low prices mean you can give your children the gift of a traditional British summer holiday without breaking the bank. Visit the website now and start planning your family adventure.
