Sleepy hostel / campsite in lakes district. Not much going on - would have struggled as a solo traveller. Good facilities though so works well as a base for daytime adventures

The place is gorgeous. I spent 3 days here and was able to enjoy the calm and serenity and the abundance of amazing facilities they offer. The network coverage is pretty bad which might be an issue if you're trying to work from there but was ideal for me since I was looking for some tech detox.
