Lovely Hostel tucked away in Grasmere. The location is beautiful and seemingly secluded. It's actually a very short walk away from the pubs and restaurants. The only issue whilst we were there was due to the floods, which had washed away part of the road towards Keswick, so some of the places for an evening meal were shut. The meals at the hostel are good. Breakfast is a fair price and Dinner is very good. Definitely a place to visit for walking.

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)

Loved this place. It's a quiet big-house style hostel tucked back in the beautiful landscape of Grasmere. The staff was super nice too; we couldn't have enjoyed it more.

Staff were friendly, location was great. A little expensive for the room however I think most places in the Lake District are quite pricey so in that respect good value for money. Would stay here again.

Hostel was nice, but we were in a separate part of the hostel (away from the main building) which felt a little isolated from everyone else.

Such a magnificent building to stay in! The private room was great and the cooking facilities were excellent. We used the dining room one night and enjoyed the meals on the menu.

The hostel is an absolutely gorgeous converted Victorian mansion sitting on a picturesque hill in Grasmere. The facilities are extensive and you can buy just about anything you need from the front desk. However, the prices are quite high for things like towel rental, laundry soap, etc. If you do not have a bit a car, the hostel can be a bit of a hassle to reach and see the rest of the Lakelands from as the local buses are infrequent and expensive.

The main hostel, gardens and location were excellent. However, self catering visitors were required to use a rather humid and not too fresh smelling kitchen and dining room in an annexe well away from the main building - I feel that self caterers are rather 2nd class citizens here. Would not be pleasant in cold or wet weather. Most hostels I have stayed in have better kitchens and dining rooms; many, very successfully, have shared dining rooms for use by both self catered and catered guests.

Excellent hostel with all the facilities. However location was not as good as YHA windermere. Nevertheless it was still appealing and refreshing. Easy accessible from city town. Friendly staff. Nice communal sitting area. Although study room was closed while we were staying there.

Absolutely beautiful location in the village of Grasmere. Some lovely walks directly from the village. Accommodation is in 2 buildings. We were in the How building where there was an excellent kitchen and eating area. The main building has a very good cafe operating if you don't feel like cooking. The staff were very helpful and friendly. My only disappointment was the lack of free wifi - £1 for 20 minutes is very expensive compared to experiences elsewhere. However otherwise a lovely spot!
