Whether you’ve a question about the hostel or you want to know about events in the Lake District, we’d love to hear from you.

Supporting the Lake District Foundation

We are long standing supporters of the Lake District Foundation. LDF are an organisation that inspires people to care for the Lake District, funding conservation, environmental and cultural heritage projects to preserve this beautiful area for visitors.

“The Lake District Foundation was established as a charity in August 2017. Prior to this, under the name Nurture Lakeland, the organisation had been working for 23 years to raise funds from visitors and the tourism industry.”

Why LDF?

As part of the tourism industry in the Lake District we want to do our bit to support the sector and the beautiful surrounding area. We love the Lake District as much as all our guests do, and we want it to be preserved for guests to continue to visit. By supporting LDF, you support us.

How do we support?

  • All guests are encouraged to make a £1 donation when booking their stay at the hostel.
  • Our Manager is in frequent contact and has attended LDF meetings to try and build a stronger, bigger, green community in the Lakes, and begin a conversation about “Carbon-Free Langdale”. (This conversation is currently on pause due to Covid-19).
  • We have several donation boxes around the hostel itself; donations are particularly encouraged in return for free tea and coffee that guests can enjoy.

We regret that as a result of Government guidelines in respect of the current Covid-19 situation the hostel is closed until further notice.

Accommodation from 1st July is available to book on our website but we will open sooner if it is legal and safe to do so.  All guests with existing bookings during May and June will be contacted when we have further clarity regarding ongoing government advice.

When we emerge from isolation, get together a group of at least ten people, and the sole use of the whole hostel can be yours for a mid-week break. A chance to reconnect with friends and make up for the cancelled winter/spring holiday. Click here for more information.

Stay safe and please keep watching the website for updates
