An excellent and very enjoyable stay in the heart of the Lake District, with a beautiful view over Esthwaite Water. Ample free parking. Within easy reach of Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere, Coniston, Tarn Hows, and so much more! Staff were very welcoming and genuinely doing everything possible to ensure that you had a good stay. Only small issue was that Covid has closed down much of the communal areas, meaning that for a hostel it was particularly quiet, but this is entirely outside the control of the hostel. I would not hesitate to book again when next visiting the Lake District.
