This stunning location provides superb mountain views and immediate access to the mountains for walkers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Nestling on the slopes of Seat Sandal, it is a prime location to explore the Central Fells, probably the best location for your ascent of Helvellyn. Adjacent to the Coast to Coast path and close to many local mountain bike routes, we cater for all.

The accommodation comprises of two 12 bed bunk rooms, a dining room with wood burning stove and television, free WiFi, and a drying room.

We are on the main bus route from Windermere Railway Station to Keswick. There is a regular service and the bus stops outside. Car parking is on the adjacent lay-by.
