The hostel is a beautiful Regency mansion with stunning grounds overlooking Esthwaite Water. This is a great base to explore the beautiful village of Hawkshead, Beatrix Potters Hill Top, Grizedale Forest and the southern fells.

Family-friendly and in a glorious setting, this grade II listed Regency style building overlooks tranquil Esthwaite Water. Great for walking and cycling, nearby Grizedale Forest also offers some of the countrys best mountain-biking. Explore the surrounding Beatrix Potter country from here too, plus theres easy access to the southern fells and Lake Windermere. Enjoy good food and local ales in the hostels comfortable restaurant.

Our rooms are in two buildings, one of which has 24 hour access once check-in has been completed.
