The location of thebase is perfect - it is the last stop on to the Helvellyn Mountain! So ideal for trekkers. The location is also a short walk down to Lake Ulswater Lake for anyone who wants to try their hand at sailing etc.
The bunkhouse is perfect for large groups of people who want to save cash! Its essentially a step-up from camping with a kitchen to make proper meals and a bed!!.
The rooms are basic bunkbeds with lockable cupboards. Kitchen, toilets and showers were all very clean. Has a feel of old school trips.
Really good to catch-up and bond with large groups - but obviously not ideal for everyone if you're expecting high-end accommodation - its very much like hostels.
Also great to be helping out with the charity that owns the bunkhouse! great to be able to pay for an accommodation that I know puts the money back into helping others!!!
