All of the rooms at The Station Inn are named after the shanty towns that used to populate the large area of land known as Batty Moss. Over 3000 labourers were employed to build the viaduct. Construction started in 1870 and the amazing project was completed in 1875. The labourers lived in ramshackle construction camps which stretched from just behind the Station Inn's wall up to the foot of Whernside. The foundations of the shanty towns are still visible if you know what to look for. We have named our rooms to tip our hat to the determination and bravery of these workers. Whilst the shanties were rough and dangerous places, we hope our rooms provide a safer and warmer environment for you to spend a night!
If you want a warm bed on a budget with a wonderful pub on your doorstep, The Station Inn's bunkhouses are ideal for groups. Our bunk houses are basic but excellent value - all you need is a sleeping bag, we provide undersheets and pillow cases. Bunk houses aren't just for intrepid adventurers, we welcome all kinds of groups who enjoy the atmosphere and convenience of traditional accommodation which is somewhere between camping and a bed and breakfast.
