Our daughter was married at YHA Langdale recently. The ceremony was held outside with the beautiful backdrop of the fells. A magical place for a wonderful occasion. Inside the house, the staff had done a wonderful job making it into a wedding venue and worked extremely hard to look after us all. The lunch provided was very tasty and beautifully...

This visit was my sixth so clearly I'm happy with the hostel, actually I'm more than happy as it's a wonderful place to go. It's a beautiful building in an incredible setting with astonishing views. What makes it exceptional is that I've been for family and friends birthday celebrations, dance weekends and singing weekends. I don't lose sight that this...

I am just back from another truly magical weekend at High Close YH.As a venue for big group events it is perfect, with its glorious setting, surrounded by the fells. Its reception and dining rooms are plenty big enough for the eighty people we had this weekend and the bedrooms are warm and comfortable. Miranda, the manager, is always welcoming...

many visits over past 10 years as a base for walking and running holidays. It's situated in the hills so many walks literally on the doorstep. The building is spacious, bright, characterful and well maintained and has a good drying room. Enjoy waking up to views of the lakes and hills from the large garden or through the huge dining...

Visited in January with group of friends. What a beautiful building in a beautiful setting. Miranda and her team are amazing managing and running YHA Langdale. They have had some work recently- upgraded toilets and showers- fab. This is a youth hostel with the dorms you expect but it has that extra something to make your stay special 💖

Dorms are overcrowded by modern standards - probably twice as many beds as there should be. Very basic. No storage in the dorms. No reading lights by the beds or electrical sockets. Bathrooms/showers recently refurbished to a very poor/cheap standard. No electrical/shaver points in bathrooms. Showers have such low power you have to stand with your back against the cubicle...

We're very sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us here at YHA Langdale, High Close. I would like to address a few of the points you have made as I believe they are rather misleading about the hostel. Firstly yes, the accommodation is basic, the rooms are fitted with modern metal bunk beds as with every youth hostel you...

Beautiful location. Only used as overnight stop on journey but would return as perfect for walks from the door and to the lovely pubs in Langdale. Great food in the evening and super breakfast to start the day.

Stopped here on the first night of a three day circular walk taking in two other YHA hostels over 35 miles. A larger hostel out of town. Warm and comfortable. Lots of lounge areas, hot showers and very friendly staff. Food very good - lots of it and thank you for the apple crumble with soya cream. The first mile...
