Best budget digs in Keswick at this refurbished riverside hostel

Best budget digs in Keswick are at the refurbished riverside hostel, which sees a lot of backpacker and hiker traffic but is also a useful base for families looking to save money on accommodation (rooms sleep up to 6, and those up in the eaves are a bit quieter and have views down onto the river). In-the-know couples should book early for the one room in the entire hostel that has a double bed (it’s got a single bunk above, so is also cosy for three). There's also a river-view bistro serving big breakfasts or pizzas and other meals for dinner. You can be out the door and up a proper mountain within half an hour – Skiddaw is the local 3000-foot peak to bag – while the municipal park lies just across the river from the hostel. Or walk the few minutes into Keswick for cagoule shopping and cappuccino drinking in the northern Lakes’ nicest town.

The Owner Says

With views overlooking the river towards the mountains you can easily believe YHA Keswick is miles from civilisation, but with the town of Keswick only minutes away the hostel offers a fantastic combination of activity and entertainment.

Just around the corner there are all sorts of activities available, including watersports, mountain bike hire and, for those rainy days. the leisure centre or indoor climbing wall. For more seasoned climbers in search of a climbing holiday, step up to the challenge of scaling Skiddaw.

After a long day if you are in need of a break and respite our licensed American-style Rocky River Diner offers an authentic stateside experience, complete with checked table cloths and generous portions of delicious USA-inspired grub.
