    Lovely Hostel on the Banks of Derwentwater with stunning views across The Fells, the boat ride in was a treat in itself. The staff were friendly and very helpful with local knowledge, walks best pubs etc. They went above and beyond to help and make sure our time with them was enjoyable. The breakfast was smashing, better than most hotels I've stayed at.

    Great staff. Lovely old building with period detailing. Food good enough & well proportioned (not stingy like some other establishments have become!). Great tasting, good sized apple crumble. Facilities as expected. Self catering kitchen very good. Nice lounge with open fire & view to Skiddaw. The dorm was nicely dark- just normal as opposed to there being bright green exit lights that you can read by to keep you awake at night-as in certain other establishments! BUT fitted bed sheets too small!

    Perfect location for our walking trip! Lovely staff, and facilities. Not the best atmosphere, a lot of people keeping to themselves and not chatting much. Regretted not choosing to have their £6 breakfast in the morning

    The hostel is located right by the lake Derwentwater lake. It is a beautiful old Gregorian house. If you are going by public transport, the bus stop is one minute away. There are no many places around, but they offer dinner and breakfast at fixed times. They also have a big shared kitchen if you feel like preparing your own meal. The staff is very friendly and helpful, I liked the fact that they have gluten-free options.

    Gem of a hostel right on the water (the sunset over Derwent Water and the hills in the distance is gorgeous) close enough to Keswick but with great access to the walking trails. Kitchen is pretty well equipped (could do with another microwave) with lots of communal space, and the lounge areas are lovely in the evening with the fire going. Would recommend this hostel.
