Just returned from three nights staying at Grasmere Independent Hostel - and I can happily say it's the best hostel I've stayed in in the UK. Great location for walking, comfortable beds, good facilities and even better views, fresh duck eggs for breakfast and lots of helpful advice from Dave and Sally. And there's a pub a couple of hundred metres away. I would highly reccommend it!

We had an excellent time over bank holiday week end. The hostel is in the perfect location for great fell walking right from the door step and a pub a few yards away. The hostel, itself, is perfect for a large group, en suite bed rooms, large kitchen and great living area with fantastic views out of the round windows. Dave and Sally were perfect hosts, gave us good instructions and then just let us get on with things. We would definitely go back.

We had sole use of the Hostel for a running group training weekend. The rooms were really clean with beds made up. The kitchen & dining facilities were great including 2 separate kitchens. The views from the common room were spectacular & the common room was comfortable with lots of space. It was a glorious weekend of sunny weather so no one used the sauna. Brilliant weekend made more so by the excellent accommodation.

Hired exclusively for a running group. Everything was exactly what we needed - Comfortable beds, loads of hot water, very well equipped kitchen, space to relax inside and outside and a huge fridge for beer!!! The location is perfect, a short walk into the village and surrounded by fells.
Would highly recommend and will hopefully return.

This place was absolutely stunning! A real bargain considering you pay hostel prices and get top hotel service. The rooms were spotless, homely and immensely comfortable. The family who run it were absolutely lovely and very helpful. I would stay here again before any other accommodation in Grasmere, including five star hotels. Just a ten minute walk from the village and spectacular scenery from the window. I was quite speechless.

My colleague and I exclusively hired the hostel for 2 nights in March in order to bring a group of 12 6th form students for a focused revision break. Everything about the hostel was excellent. We ordered a Tesco online delivery to arrive at our expected arrival time and Dave had very kindly unpacked our shopping for us on arrival. The rooms were brilliant, all with bunkbeds and their own bathrooms. The attention to detail was fantastic - the owners really have thought of everything, and the hostel was clean and spacious. Our students were all on a rota to cook and clean up and we ate there both nights of our stay. The kitchen facilities were great - everything there that we needed and lots of room to seat everyone. We used both the dining room and living room for study sessions although I know that there is a separate conference room if we'd needed it. The living area had a TV and DVD player and lots of books / board games that we made good use of! Our students loved the free WIFI (a must for them!) and the hostel was just a short walk into Grasmere so great location. We would certainly recommend the hostel for other groups, families, couples and those on business and we're looking forward to arranging our next stay!

This is a new hostel, with lots of attention to detail. The rooms are excellent with en suite facilities. There is a large drying room, laundry, sauna (!), common room and kitchen. The owners take great care to introduce the facilities (and the small number of rules). Everything was clean and appropriate to a hostel.

Room Tip: Try for the ground floor to avoid lugging stuff up the stairs!
