Butharlyp Howe Youth hostel is probably one of the best that we have stayed in. We opted for a 'private room, and found it to be of excellent value and standard. Many youth hostels are fine listed buildings in beautiful places but often run down in need of some TLC. Maybe money has been spent on this one as Thorney Howe, the YH up the road has been sold. This is also the first hostel that I have stayed in and not had to make my own bed! Beds were comfy and the room nice and warm. It felt a bit chilly when we arrived but staff soon rectified that with no problems at all. In fact the staff were friendly, helpful and informative at all times. The self catering kitchen is in the annexe, so it is necessary to go outside and down some steps to use it. unless of course your room is in the annexe. We only had one evening meal there, but can highly recommend the curries! There are two lounges. One with TV and internet access. Also an excellent drying room downstairs. It is just outside centre of Grasmere and has it's own car park car park. I should imagine this gets very full at the height of summer. We will definitely stay here again.
