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

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

Future customers might wish to know that the road up to the hostel from Coniston village is resurfaced regularly, and is passable in a vehicle providing care is taken. Really glad that you enjoyed your meal, we cater for a range of dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan,... 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

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
