This hostel is in need of refurbishment but despite this the staff are so friendly and helpful - suggested great walks both nearby and further north in the Lake District for day we moved on. Wonderful location within easy distance to Rydal Water and Grasmere and walks starting near hostel.
Self-catering kitchen was well equipped though could do with a bit more space at times for the number of people staying when busy.
Evening meal purchased was great - just what we needed after a day travelling.
There are comfortable rooms for relaxing in the evenings. Grounds are extensive, weather a bit damp so we didn't get to explore as much as we would have liked.
We do hope that this hostel survives - deserves to be updated and well used.More
