A perfectly situated hostel for soaking up the peace, beauty and grandeur of the Lake District.

YHA Patterdale has always been one of the YHA's best located hostels, but it has recently had a stylish makeover, and boasts a brand-new retro-cum-modern look that is a practical as well as an aesthetic success. With 85 beds spread over 14 rooms, and a mix of dorms and private rooms, it's a large-ish hostel, but it's got an identity all of its own, with wonderful views from most of its rooms, spacious living and dining areas, a self-catering kitchen and a licensed bar – plus non-hostellers can enjoy a spot of camping in a field while still using all the hostel's facilities. The location is splendid, with the peak of Helvellyn on your doorstep for rock-climbers and more hiking routes than you can shake a stick at, while Ullswater Steamers are less than a mile away if you're after gentler pursuits. There are not many places more perfectly situated for soaking up the peace, beauty and grandeur of the Lake District.





Beds from £10, private rooms from £30, family rooms from £29, camping from £8 per person.
