Lake District Backpackers
Local bus trips give tours of the lakes and valleys. The family run hostel offers you every comfort in small dorms, friendly common room packed with leaflets on what to do and a self catering kitchen. We are situated close to local pubs, shops and supermarket, so you can soak up the atmosphere. Good stop over point before hitting the night life
of Edinburgh or York. Look forward to welcoming you! Self catering kitchen, sky tv and internet access, cosy lounge with fire, lockers, hot showers, outside seating area.
**Please note the following: As our reception is not always manned we will email to you the key code for the front door once the booking is confirmed. We also have an arrivals list and explanatory notices about how the hostel works etc in the kitchen.**
The hostel is run on a self service basis without staff always being present. There is a key code for the front door which changes frequently, however, there are no locks on the dormitory rooms, only private rooms.
For your added security, CCTV covers the public areas of the hostel 24/7!
Having said that, everyone appreciates the honest policy and items are left safety in the rooms ( although as mentioned above, lockers are available)
We do NOT take all male parties of more than 8 people-
