As a regular camper in LAngdale we havent really done the hostel thing before... but we will again thanks to Thorney How! The location is excellently placed for a variety of walks from the relatively easy family walk up to Easedale Tarn through to being reasonably close to Helvelyn!
The rooms in the bunk house were great - clean and with great showers. The camping barn was more basic and smelt a bit funny but we were assured this was a new carpet so happy to forgive this.
Staff were friendly and offered meals and breakfast that we didnt get the chance to take them up on but will do next time. Was really happy that they offered meals at the last minute despite there being loads of us.
Also really happy that the rooms werent under lock and key at 11 o'clock exactly (I hate that!)
Also thought it great that they had electric car charging and electric bike hire facilities!
Generally a great place for young and older groups (we were a mixed age stag party) and I see it being great for families too.
Was very cheap too!
We'll be back!
One thing - dont turn up in loads of cars! We did and if there had been one more car we would have really struggled!
