Booked two rooms as we were a large group of 10. We were made to feel very welcome and were surprised at how well equipped the hostel was. Rooms were comfortable, with an inviting lounge, fantastic kitchen facilities and even a sauna to help relax after a days walking. Great access to Helvellyn - we drove up to the Swirls...

Beautiful pod with everything you could wish for. Underfloor heating definitely a plus in winter! Location is great to access Grasmere and beyond. People who run the place are friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back!!

We hired this lovely hostel for a weekend away at the end of January with a group of friends. We had several children with us ranging in age from 3 to 12. The facilities were excellent, and spotless....no musty hostel smell here!! Each dorm room either had an en suite bathroom or a bathroom close by. The lounge was very...

A group of families and friends hired the hostel for a weekend as an experiment as we've normally hired big houses for our get togethers. It was a great decision, and everyone had a wonderful time, including those a little sceptical about hostels. It was so good in fact that we've booked for next year already.

I have never stayed at another hostel like it. This has been creatively designed by people who have stayed at hostels and thought "what would we do to make it better". And the results are incredible. Clean, great and friendly welcome, superb kitchen, a sauna, plenty of showers, en suite, a drying room, teas and coffee with just an honesty...

I have just had the pleasure of cooking for some lovely yoga peeps in an immaculate kitchen. So well equipped and user friendly and there was nothing that our hosts Dave and Sally wouldn't do for us. We all slept like babies and woke to piping hot showers and amazing views. This will always be my hostel of choice.

Great facilities, kitchen was well equipped and the showers/toilet areas were very clean. In a beautiful part of the Lakes just outside Grasmere, easy walking into the village and a good base for hill walking.

Participants were able to take in beautiful views of the local landscape whilst they practiced asana, take beautiful walks in a stunning location, relax and recharge their batteries in a fabulous hostel - clean rooms, bedding and on suite bathrooms,...

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...
