Part of me would like to keep this place a secret, but it is too good not to share.
First the setting...........Wow, the most beautiful setting in the UK. When you come round the corner and see the lake and the scree slope plunging into the lake with the mountains as a backdrop the jaw will hit the floor, breathtaking.
The Hall is gorgeous old manor hall with a huge studded oak door. It sitson the bank of Wastwater lake facing the scree slope.
The rooms are clean and tidy, the library/lounge is a great place to relax after a long walk and share stories or read stories. It has an open fire and a piano. You can use the kitchen to make your own food or you can eat in the restaurant, they make breakfast lunch snacks and evening dinner. The food is that of a top quality restaurant not what you might expect of a YHA.
The staff are really friendly.
For the price of a youth hostel it has no comparison, you could pay 100 times as much but would not get anyway near the ambiance or scenery as this place.
It is more of a drive to get there than the other lakes but you will not regret it, it blows all the other lakes away.More
