An amazing 220 year old mansion in a beautiful setting. Extensive grounds with its own spectacular waterfall and stunning views across the lake - great for family get togethers and special occasions. The perfect centre for walking, watersports, climbing & cycling. Only two miles from Keswick, the main tourist town in the Lake District.

The wifi at the hostel doesn't extend to the bedrooms but we do have reasonable coverage on the ground floor.
