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.

Had the most incredible 10 days here in June 2015. Comfy beds, hot showers, and amazing food. My friend's 20th spent here (whilst on uni fieldwork) was made extra special with a (really delicious) cake homemade by Sarah. Sarah and Andy are amazing and do their best to keep the hostel in a brilliant condition. Sarah especially went above and... More

After a day trip sailing on Coniston, we (a group of 4 friends in our 30s) went up to the Coppermines to take in the scenery there before heading home to the Midlands. On passing the hostel we noticed a sign outside stating '3 course dinner, £8.50 7pm' - hungry from sailing, went inside to enquire. The staff were lovely,... More

Visited recently for 10 days for a University trip and can happily say it was a 5 star stay! Excellent bedrooms, very comfortable lounge, fantastic kitchen and dining room for home cooked meals or Andy and Sarah's outstanding 3 course meal in the evening! They were extremely hospitable and made every extra effort to ensure we had everything we could... More

I can't recommend Coppermines enough. Firstly the location is beautiful, close enough to get into Coniston but a perfect base for a day in the fells or exploring the historic Coppermines valley. It is small, basic and intimate, but comfortable. The hostel is really well run by Andy and Sarah who put a real personal touch on a stay there.... More

The hostel is in a quiet secluded location with great views up towards the Old Man of Coniston. The hosts Andy and Sarah were friendly, and good cooks too. There was a nice atmosphere chatting to other guests at dinner. The showers were clean, hot and had good pressure (essential when you're caked in mud). The mattresses were comfortable. I... More
