Perfect for an overnight pit stop, the property is dated but it is kept very clean and tidy and we where informed it was ran by volunteers who do a fantastic job. You have be back in by 11.00 pm on an evening but that was not a problem for us.
The kitchen had everything you needed if you where to cook for yourself, the village is about a 15 minute walk away to the local pubs and restaurants.
We where a group of 6 girls the women's dorm slept 10 (5 bunk beds) we felt very safe and had no problems at all, would defiantly revisit again if in the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A handy base for cycling and touring the west Cumbrian coast and great walking in the quieter northwestern lakeland fells, this hostel is a converted 17th century watermill in an idyllic spot on the river Cocker. Perfectly located for hiking and all kinds of outdoor activity breaks, this has all the makings of a magical Lake District holiday you'll never forget. Self catering only but it’s only a 10 minute walk to the centre of this attractive market town with plenty of good pubs and restaurants. ... more less
