Stunning walks and scenery right on your doorstep.

Surrounded by the fells of the beautiful Langdale Valley, Elterwater Hostel makes a perfect base for cycling, walking and climbing trips to the Lakes, or simply a fantastic spot to escape to for a quiet break. 

Situated some 4.5 miles West of Ambleside and 3 miles South of Grasmere, a variety of cultural attractions, including the Beatrix Potter and Wordsworth museums, and many restaurants and cafés are within easy reach. 

Elterwater itself is home to one of England’s best old pubs, The Britannia Inn, listed in the Good Beer Guide, with an ever-changing selection of locally brewed ales and a hugely popular menu. The Wainwright Inn, another traditional Lakeland pub, is just a short walk along the river towards Chapel Stile.
