Dave and Sally are brilliant hosts and the facilities are spotless. Hosted two yoga weekends here and all guests have been impressed by the venue and location (and perhaps the teaching?!). Can't wait to be back in November and March!

I stayed here as part of a large group who had booked the entire hostel. We have been many times before and now come twice a year because the facilities and location are perfect. The huge kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped with loads of equipment and crockery that isn't mismatched and chipped. Very very clean every time I have been. A...

Fab weekend. Hostel was clean, showers were ace. Kitchen was downstairs, lounge on the first floor with books and games (not that we used them). Great location for a walk into Grasmere or a 15 mile run around Thirlmere. What an adventure.

I have chosen this hostel as my base to discover Lake District and I'm so in love with this place I'm thinking to come back next year. Everything is super clean and organised and at the same time the atmosphere is really laid back. The location is super, is a grey stones building facing a big mountain. Beds are really...

Excellent trip to Lakes with two children (aged 9 & 12). We stayed in room for 3 and were really comfortable. The hostel is very clean and the kitchen facilities are great. We particularly loved the lounge with its amazing window. Loads of card games and books/maps and information. Lots of nice little touches (donation tea and coffee, boot drying...

We initially booked for 3 beds, but got to know that there were one available 4 beds en-suite dorm. We changed to that room, it is very nice and the toilet super clean. The kitchen is perfect too, all new and well arranged. Clean farm and beautiful garden and walking distance to lovely Gramere town. Both owners are very warm....

Stayed here during a visit to Striding Edge and other Lake District attractions. Good in-house facilities, friendly atmosphere, plus ideal location for local walks. Top value for money. Highly recommend.
