      Pods”

      Hawkshead was amazing. The pods were great. We were sorry we could not stay more than a night but next day we got to sit by Esitheswaite Lake and have coffee right on the lake with really friendly ducks and swans. The location was perfect. We wanted to stay more and have decided to come back later in the year for a weeks holiday. The staff were really helpful and even got me a cup for my morning tea to take back to the pods.

      Lovely setting not great value for money compared to others been to. Was told by Agoda ground floor and own shower room. Mum will bad knee had to walk up to first floor , share bathroom and food very expensive and limited. No access to the Lake. When looked on YHA sight would have been just as cheep to book on them and would have been able to make more informed choose.

      Thanks for the review Natasha, I'm sorry that you experienced problems when making your booking through a 3rd party website. We try to make sure the information they use is correct and up to date but some times it may not be as clear as is on our own personal website. Hopefully this experience will not put you off staying with YHA again as we have many fantastically located hostels all around the country.

      The Yha is set in a beautiful area near Esthwaite lake. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The showers and toilets were immaculately clean. The breakfast is such good value for money. Good place to stay if your a rambler as it’s easy to reach other areas such as Coniston and Keswick. I can’t fault the place and we hope to stay again in the future. Oh and dogs are also welcome.

      Glamping”

      The people who work there are genuinely friendly and really work to make your experience one worth remembering. I stayed in the camping pods outside and it was cosy and cute. The facilities were always clean no matter what time it was. The self catering kitchen is nice and big so there wasn't a time were we had to wait in a queue to eat. It's great value for money. It's cheaper than staying inside the actual hostel AND you get to use all the hostel facilities for FREE! I would definitely go back there. The peacefulness was definitely my favourite part and waking up to the beautiful lake aswell

      Abbiamo soggiornato una sola notte in uno dei POD, non sono forniti di letto matrimoniale ma è stato comunque molto bello passare una notte in una mini casetta di legno. La struttura dell'ostello è molto bella, con un ampio giardino vista lago. Staff amichevole e disponibile.
