Due to the fact I'd booked YHA Ambleside but turned up a week early (doh) we were diverted here by the very helpful woman on their booking helpline. She did warn us it was up a mike long unadopted track but it is really rocky and we had to stop a hiker to make sure we were on the right... More

We had all meals and they were on a shared table with Japanese group who were very friendly and fellow geocachers. Meals were wonderful and in the common room there were also cakes and drinks with an... More

Coppermines Coniston is the perfect location for many many activities. The location is central for mountain , fishing, pot holing, cycling, running, walking and leisure activities. At least for this was the range of activities of the people who passed through the hostel while I was there. A cracking location is rounded off by a very good hostel which is... More

It is always pleasing to know that a guest has enjoyed their stay so much so thank you for sharing your experience. As you have said we are ideally located for a large number of activities, but are just the right distance away from the bustle of the town to really capture the 'getting away from it all' experience.

Stayed for a weekend in early April 2014 with a group from my local church. We took over the whole hostel and had a great time. Weather was somewhat less than average, but the hospitality, food and general environment of the hostel more than made up. The facilities are quite straight forward, but the setting on the lower slopes of... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience. We agree that our location is very special indeed! Ideally located for a number of awe-inspiring walks, and a good, warm and inviting base to fuel up for the fells, or to wind down in the evening with a delicious meal and a local ale. We are happy...

Just spent an amazing couple of days at the YHA Coniston, Coppermines. A brilliant experience, stunning scenery and environment. The staff (Phil, Mark, Mandy and Eric), were superb and couldn't do enough for us. This included ghost stories and a ghost hunt which was great fun. The food was first class and there was plenty of it. Value for money,... More

With any luck, if you are visiting the Lake District you won't mind a good walk. That's exactly what it was like getting to the hostel, if not driving and not as hardy as I would consider myself, the access to the hostel might be daunting as it is a good 2 mile walk up a gravel track up a... More

Been a member of YHA for years, used to go a lot more often when kids were young or I just needed to get away. Never been to Coniston before but this hostel is superb, so clean and the food to die for. I was actually helping out as a volunteer but you could see the staff knew exactly what... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perfect for mountain lovers looking for great climbing holidays. Beautifully located, this hostel offers a 500ft head start on the ascent of the Old Man of Coniston. There are many other walks and splendid views to enjoy from this rural retreat. A great base for outdoor activity breaks and walking holidays. Access to the hostel is via a mile long un-surfaced track out of Coniston village, but we have a licensed bar with real ale should you want to settle in for the evening in front of the fire. ... more   less
