Stayed here for 4 nights to tick of some Wainwrights in the Far Eastern Fells area. Lovely quiet location and a great base for walkers. If you're new to the area, start with Place Fell which has fantastic views of the area. Good Full English breakfast with the usual muesli and fruit alternatives. Evening meals were good as well and...

We used this hostel when doing the Coast to Coast walk and it was ideally located next to the track. We can't rate the food as we had booked to eat at a local pub but the breakfast was fine and we were delighted to find that they offered porridge. Helpful staff and very good drying room

We slept like LOGS here, in a cosy bunk bed room (my boyfriend said it was like a hutch, but he really liked it!) Unusual, delightful architecture and beautiful grounds by the stream.

Hi, I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay here, and had a chance to explore the grounds around the hostel. We have Supper Club to encourage guests to meet other guests while they are here, and hopefully share stories about their days adventures in the area.

Beware what the website says. Despite the offer of a child's meal free with each adult meal ordered with no mention of age limits on the website, when I ordered for my daughter and myself last week, a tiny card at reception tells you that this only applies to children under ten. We were charged full price for two meals...

The Youth Hostel was lovely to stay at and was easy to find with good access to Patterdale and surrounding walks. It was fairly busy when we went so parking was a tight squeeze and despite having only three of us, they put us in a dorm room for 8 people! This meant we had loads of room but no...
