Open kitchen doesn't have any items for free except few spices. Carry everything if you plan for breakfast and dinner.

Interesting how one person can lower the general impression. Girl on reception was efficient and polite but altogether functional and impersonal at odds with other staff who were friendly esp. kitchen staff. It is a beautiful house and very conveniently located and I would stay there again.


Situated away from main area, Windermere and 15mins coach ride from Ambleside. Beautiful scenery surrounding. Pros: standard YHA hostel, great security, big dorm room. Cons: kitchen away from main building, without shelter (rains frequently)


My friends and I had a lovely stay- thanks!
