For your next activity break in Cumbria, explore this quieter corner of the Lake District or go sightseeing from this purpose-built, child-friendly rural retreat, nestling among the fells and set in its own extensive grounds. You’ll find local walking routes to suit all abilities and interesting trails nearby. Or, visit Hardknot Roman Fort, the stone circles at Burnmoor, Stanley Gyll Falls or the Cumbrian Coast, all good destinations for your school trip. The hostel has a wildlife garden and nature trail and great family meals are served here.

I used this hostel for a one night stay for my hike up Scafell Pike. The place was clean and great value for money at £15 for the night. I would recommend staying here. The WiFi could be improved as it cut out frequently - but who goes away to use the internet? It would be a good addition to have power sockets for each bed in the dormitory, rather than one socket for 6 people as it isn’t enough. Other than those small things, I loved it.

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review, we really appreciate the feedback. One of the few downsides of this spectacular location is that the WiFi is occasionally a little temperamental - thank you for bearing with us on this! Thank you for your suggestion about the power sockets in the dorm rooms, this is certainly something that we are looking to improve. We hope you enjoyed your hike up Scafell Pike, and it would be fantastic to see you again sometime in the future. Best wishes.

Great location and value for money. Has really good facilities and the rooms are how you’d expect from a youth hostel. One thing I would say, it was a bit noisy at night; however I think that was due to a beer festival which happened to be going on at the time we were there. I don’t think this would be an issue most of the time.

Good evening! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave a review, the feedback is always useful. The Boot Beer Festival is a yearly event, and while it is greatly enjoyed by many we do appreciate that it can cause a slight amount of disturbance. We hope that this did not impact too negatively on your stay. Thanks again for writing a review, and we hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes.

Friendly staff, great breakfast, wonderful surroundings - what more do you need. We stayed here to do a bit of walking and sightseeing. Its a wonderful place to stay and a great area to visit. The family room we stayed in was spacious and the view outside of the window was wonderful.

Stayed here for a night in April and really enjoyed it. A decent night's sleep and amiable staff. Bathrooms not that private, as they are shared as a group. A great base for exploring some of the Southern Fells. Very nice on the whole, but not as good as my favourites of Wasdale and Borrowdale YHA's.

Very nice, friendly hostel, good facilities (basic kitchen, lounge area and bar), clean and great access to some beautiful walks including some of the tallest mountains in England! No wifi - although you can get signal at the pub down the road which serves some lovely local brews!

Good evening! Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Fantastic to hear that you had a good stay with us, and were able to enjoy some of the many beautiful walks nearby. We have certainly been very lucky with the weather this Spring! Apologies that the Wi-Fi was not working during your time here - we do occasionally have problems with it given our location! Hope you see you again soon. Best wishes, Kirsten.
