Beautifully located next to the lake with stunning views of the famous Wastwater Screes and cliffs, this is a great place to stay. It is a quiet place, far from the crowds in other parts of the Lake District and a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the effort of getting there.
We chose not to use the members kitchen and found the food to be excellent! Breakfast choice is good and the evening meals are extremely good value for money - why travel to the pub when the food is so good at the hostel? My wife described her risotto as the best she had ever eaten! My need to eat gluten free was catered for with a special menu being sent to me in advance. Gluten free packed lunches are available too!
The staff are superb: friendly, and only too pleased to help.
The building has character, the lounge being a delightful place to relax in the evening with magazines, books (for all ages) and games, or just to chill out and compare notes with other guests.
There are loads of great walks nearby!
