My husband and I stayed in the youth hostel at Ambleside for 3 nights in Jan 2020. The hostel is in a superb location on the banks of Winderemere with stunning views of the lake. The accommodation is excellent value for money and provides a great base for walking. The self catering facilities and communal lounges are comfortable and clean and provide lots of opportunity to get talking to fellow guests.

The hostal has a prime location by the waters edge. The bustling town with it's many pubs and eating venues is only within a 10 minute walk or short drive away. .Nearby are bus stops for the local bus service and on the lake, landing stages for the various ferries which frequent the lake. All in all an ideal venue to spend some time on the water,s edge for a few days holiday.
