Arrived early but Fiona was welcoming. Dorm was fine and even had a single bed which was very comfortable. We had an evening meal which was excellent and reasonably priced. Breakfast​ was superb . The atmosphere of the place was excellent and so friendly with people mixing easily. I would definitely recommend this hostel for all of the reasons stated...

Just what you would expect from a YHA walkers retreat in the Lakes. Friendly, clean, relaxed and accommodating. Perfect access to the Scar Fell Pike which was a 6-7 hour round trip walk from. Flexible food options including access to a kitchen if required. Morning breakfast was great.

Lovely old house in a fantastic setting. Very friendly staff, particularly Fiona who couldn't have been any more helpful. Fairly secure bike store. Served a good range of chilled drinks. Evening meal and breakfast were great as was the packed lunch which was tailored to our needs. Would not hesitate to stay here again 😊

I have stayed at this hostel a few times when i have been walking in the area and there are a lot of positives. The location is AMAZING the staff are super helpful. The surrounding countryside is STUNNING and it is great if you are planning to walk Scafell Pike. The rooms are basic but you get what you pay...

A comfortable and very hospitable hostel. Everything you need on a walking holiday - a friendly welcome, warm, comfortable beds, hot showers and good food. We were well catered for as vegans. Sweet potato curry a highlight. Would definitely stay again. Just sorry you close through the winter.

I enjoyed my camping stay. I camped on flat ground, a little higgle/piggle to get pegs in, but great place across a small bridge, secluded, with my friends who shared the plot. We had total access to hostel, day and night...........and the self catering kitchen was good. [took a knife outside to sharpen on a stone though, as was a...

Great that you enjoyed your camping pitch. We've been putting a lot of thought and work into developing the camping area so that the campers can get a nice pitch with some space and privacy. The cost for the camping pitches are the same throughout the year but beds and family rooms in the hostel do vary between times of...

Stayed for 3 nights in August in tent. Staff are welcoming and helpful - thank you Mick, Rachel, Fiona and Kirsten. Refreshing that there is no TV and guests engage in conversation. Beautiful location. For me this is what a YHA should be about.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay, I would definitely recommend staying here. This was my first time staying in a youth hostel and I was very impressed. Comfortable, clean and friendly staff. Dorms are made up of 4 sets of bunk beds, male and female with family rooms available if required. Relax in the lounge or dinning area...

I visited here with a group in July for the first time. The Manager was really great and went out of her way to accommodate us with an early breakfast. The kitchens are very well equipped and spacious communal areas. The outside grounds are well maintained and you would not know it was a hostel apart from the sign. The...
