Beautiful grounds ”

Helpful staff, beautiful views shame we didn’t have the lovely views from our room. Wooden bunk beds was a lilttle disappointment due to the lack of socket plugs attached to the beds. Family of four with one socket was difficult but managed. Not the cleanest of yha we stayed in. Overall good stay.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we're pleased to hear you enjoyed our views. We would love to have more sockets in rooms and most of our bunk are metal but we do have a few wooden ones, though we are constantly striving for improvement as a youth charity we do not have huge levels of revenue to spend on facilities. We do work hard to keep everything clean, tidy and we endeavour to always give a friendly welcome.

Suitable for self-drive trips”

We were travelling as a couple and had booked a double room in the hotel. The room was small but clean and had a washbasin in the room. The communal bathroom and toilet were also clean. The sound insulation between the rooms was average. The biggest problem was that the flat was quite far from the main road. Not suitable for people on foot. It takes about 20 minutes or so to walk to get there. At night there are no lights and you can miss them if you are not careful.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, it is much appreciated, we are pleased to hear that you found the room and facilities clean. We are located away from the town which can be tricky for those not wishing to walk far, but we feel that the peacefulness of the site comes from being away from the busy town and we are lucky to have stunning views over Windermere and the mountains from an elevated position.
