The hostel is in an exciting position part way up the mountain of Coniston Old Man. It's reached by a rough track and is about a mile from the village. The building itself is a nice old slate building (was home of mine manager). The best features are the large communal kitchen/dining area and a cosy communal room with plenty... More

This is about 1.5 miles out of the centre of Coniston up an unmade road. There is a sign near the start of the track that says something like the road is for residents only. Don't be put off - you're on the right track. But do drive slowly. I got a puncture but Kat who works at the hostel... More

Very beautiful place to stay in, going to it gave us a thrill. Staying there gave us the quite and touch we needed with nature. Walking to it after our meal in town was very peaceful. Very helpful staff, the food (breakfast) was really good, and I may or may not get this service if I have been to five... More

It is set amongst the most stunning scenery and the couple who run it are super helpful. We needed help with various issues that arose and Kat really couldn't have done more to help. Oh and the coffee is the best around!

Having walked all day from the busy Troutbeck hostel beween Windermere and Ambleside I bought a few provisions and decided to plod the mile up the hill to Coppermines rather than take the easy option of staying down in Coniston. What a good call, an amazing location, tranquility in the extreme. The hostel was nowhere near capacity mid-week in September... More

The hostel has a lovely atmosphere, thanks in large measure to the friendliness of the staff, Kat and Mark. It's in a great place for exploring the Conistons and there are views down the valley, over the old mine workings to Lake Coniston. The self-catering kitchen is well equipped but we had the three course meal @ £8.50 both nights... More

We came up to start the first of many recces is LL50 route. From the moment we arrived on Friday until leaving on Sunday I was nothing less than impressed. Nothing was too much trouble for lovely Cat & Mark. We got lucky and had a 6 person dorm for just the two of us. Shower was hot (very welcome... More

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

Thank you for sharing your experience. Since your stay a year ago, you may be pleased to know that we now serve our 3-course dinners at the slightly earlier time of 7PM! We will, of course, always try to accomodate any special requirements, so if time allows for us to do an earlier or later meal, we would always be... More
