Welcome to our hostel

For exploring a quieter part of the Lakes, Eskdale YHA in the western fells is ideal. Riverside walks, the steam railway and the coastline offer alternatives to more classic Lakeland pursuits.
Explore a quieter corner of the Lake District or go sightseeing from this purpose-built, child-friendly hostel nestling among the fells and set in its own extensive grounds. You’ll find local walking routes to suit all abilities and interesting trails nearby. Or, visit Hardknot Roman Fort, the stone circles at Burnmoor, Stanley Gyll Falls or the Cumbrian Coast. The hostel has a wildlife garden and nature traiil. Great family meals are served here and the hostel is fully licensed.

A great location and beautiful hostel. I'd be delighted if I could bring my dog to stay with me. While Eskdale has good hostel food, a little more attention in the kitchen would make it better.
