Everything you want in a Hostel for exploring the Lakes and Mountains around Keswick, warm rooms, hot showers, good drying room and a hearty breakfast at an economical price with friendly staff to boot. In addition it is just a ten minute walk into the center of Town if you are looking to eat/drink out although there are places closer.

stayed here for 1 night and arrived soaking wet after a days walking, Libby and Mark couldnt have been more welcoming, complimentary tea and coffee and a tumble drier for the wet clothes were a godsend, there is a large kitchen and dining area and a small tv room, there is a washing machine for longer stays, plenty of toilets...

After a 220+ mile journey up on a Friday evening I arrived around 10pm, Mark came outside having noticed my Car and pointed me to the Anex building our group of Gents were living in for the two nights. The Dorm had a series of wooden bunk-beds around 12 in the first room and a separate room at the back... More

Stayed with a large group over the weekend. Bunk house accommodated us all, with plenty if dinning room space. Ideal for weekends activities and a 5 minute walk into Keswick town centre. Where you will find some great restaurants and pubs.

The facilities are clean and tidy and the hostel is situated very near to the town centre of Keswick. Thanks also to Lou who... More

A weekend doing Gisburn, Grizedale and Whinlatter, stayed at Denton house for 2 nights. The accomodation was certainly adequate, comfy and clean beds, decent number of showers/toilets. Kitchen facilities should you need them - we just made the odd brew. Breakfast was a bit disorganised but that added amusement to the proceedings - the hangover probably helped too. We had... More

Great afternoon scrambling and overnight at Denton House. Thanks to Mick for looking after us and good night out in Keswick. Sunshine was an added bonus and off licence and pub food nearby was a bonus. Great time had by all the stags till it was time to get up!

Went as part of a group on a stag do. They organised activities that went without a hitch. The breakfast and packed lunch were very good value (and the manager changed the time to accommodate our likely state!) It is just like many hostels but the staff were really accommodating and very helpful and this made all the difference. It... More

We visited as a group if guys on a stag trip. The venue is well located for an easy walk into town. Our room was a little crowded but beds very comfortable. A pillow with a bit more life in it would've been nice. All in all though good for hostel accommodation. I was a little surprised to be told... More
