Facilities

We’ve been a hostel for over 80 years, but that doesn’t mean we’re old fashioned. We’ve been updating the facilities to combine the charm and functionality of the original YHA Hostel with a relaxed, warm and comfortable environment. Other facilities include:

  • Accommodation for up to 40 people in 11 bedrooms, ranging from two to six beds in each
  • Available for single bookings or groups large or small –  Enquiries welcome
  • Two newly refurbished unisex shower rooms, in addition to gender specific facilities
  • Fully equipped self catering kitchen
  • Communal lounge/dining area
  • Excellent drying room
  • Cycle storage
  • Small shop selling maps, postcards snacks and drinks
  • Free wifi in public areas and some bedrooms
  • Just a two/three minute walk from a fantastic Lakeland pub
  • National Trust car park less than 100m away – free to National Trust members or £6.50 per day. There is also limited free roadside parking around Elterwater.
  • Fully catered accommodation options available
