Spending two nights at YHA Coniston Coppermines was the most refreshing experience. It is a beautiful, quaint little cottage tucked away in the mountains. The kitchen was big, the rooms were plenty warm enough. I think Sarah and Andy were what made this place special. They were both kind and warm people, and always seemed happy to help. We asked...

We stayed at Coniston Coppermines YHA for five nights over half term week. We've stayed in other hostels in the Lakes but this one is in such a wonderful location at the foot of Coniston Old Man, that it felt like a really exciting adventure for our nine year old twins. We arrived just as it was getting dark, to... More

Sarah is the most amazing cook and served us 3 course meals for £8 that would have done well in a Michelin starred restaurant ! She and her partner were very welcoming hosts and the hostel a little gem with marvellous walks from the doorstep Many thanks

Coppermines was the chosen first stop on our Coast to Coast mtb ride. The distance fromm St Bees was ambitious and so four exhausted & very hungry bikers rolled up at 8.15 pm in the dark. We couldn't get a phone signal to advise of our late arrival, so we missed the evening meal! Not great for us but Andy... More

Review is based upon my clients who stay at the hostel. I make the bookings and the service is excellent. The food and service is excellent. Only comments from clients there are limited rooms for lectures and the drying room is very small. However overall as a place to base a Mountain Leader course its fantastic.

We stayed here having walked two children (6 and 9) over the hills from the end of the Walna Scare road (you can see the YHA from the car-park. Walking into it with rucksacks on really gave the kids a sense of adventure and achievement. As soon as we arrived, the couple who ran it (Andy and Sarah) greeted us... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. It was our first visit to a youth hostel and we really enjoyed it. The location is unique and breathtaking. The drive up and down the track is a bit 'hairy', but the views are great. Andy and Sarah are great hosts. We didn't eat at the hostel in the evening as we had family... More

Great food and a brilliant atmosphere in this hostel - staff very friendly once again. Highly recommend! Set in the middle of nowhere up a steep track but this really adds to its charm. Gives a head start up the Old Man of Coniston.

Small but all the better for it, met some nice people.Lovely atmosphere instilled by the staff especially young Sarah. If you like cake this could be a dangerous place to visit! Highly recommended. Charlie
