Backpackers and hikers rarely get it as good as this – Grasmere’s indie farmhouse hostel pampers budget travellers with tons of the right stuff, from panoramic lounge to on-site sauna. En-suite bunkrooms are small and cosy – there’s one on the top floor with a private bathroom that sleeps two to three people – while on the ground floor you get a large professionally equipped kitchen plus laundry and drying room. The nearest pub is a few hundred yards down the road, or Grasmere village is ten minutes’ walk away, and the glorious mountains are all around. Plus they have their own, rather lovely glamping site too!
We are the only 4 star independent hostel in the Lake District and are ranked number 1 'Speciality Lodging' in Grasmere by TripAdvisor. We are situated on Broadrayne Farm, set in 10 acres of grazing land, which is located in the very heart of the Lake District National Park. Public transport runs right past our door but we also have plenty of parking. However, you won't need your car when you get here, as hiking can be done straight from our door.
Our facilities include en-suite rooms, free WiFi to all rooms, Internet PC, secure bike store, self-catering kitchens, large LCD TV & DVD, sauna, drying room, laundry area and large BBQ area.
Our aim is to be as environmentally friendly as possible. All our heating and hot water is supplied by our Woodchip Biomass boiler system and we have LED lighting throughout. We recycle as much as possible and have free range chickens and ducks wandering around the farm too.
