The Hostel

YHA Hawkshead is a grade II listed building, we have exclusive use of the 72 beds main house. There is a selection of dorm rooms, some of which are en-suite:

4 x 4 beds
4 x 6 beds
4 x 8 beds

The Youth Hostel has many great facilities including a self-catering kitchen and social areas. There is a spacious lounge which is perfect for relaxing after a busy day, a dining room, and a games room. Our well-equipped self-catering kitchen has two cookers, eight hobs, a microwave, two fridges and a small freezer.

There is bike store, drying room and wi-fi.

Bedding is provided but we need to bring towels and toiletries.

The YHA will not be provided a bar while we are there so we can bring our own alcoholic and soft drinks.

Location:

The YHA overlooks Esthwaite Water approximately 1 mile from Hawkshead Village, an ancient township that dates back from Norse times and has a good selection of pubs and cafes (including a kitty café if you like that sort of thing!). It is only 5 miles from Ambleside and 4 miles from Coniston.

Activities:

Hawkshead is in a great area for walking, mountain biking and cycling with Satterthwaite, Claife Heights and Grizedale Forest and Tarn Hows nearby.
