YHA Wasdale Hall

Formerly known as YHA Wastwater, this 200 year old country pile was originally used as a lakeside holiday home before becoming a National Trust property and still contains many of its original features including panelled windows, gabled roof and cornicing.

Its beautiful black and white half-timbered façade, built in the 1820s, makes for an awe-inspiring view as you approach the Youth Hostel. It stand out from the surrounding landscape and trees.

This 19th century country manor is every bit as grand as its name, Wasdale Hall, would suggest. This delightful accommodation in Cumbria is often cited as a favourite hostel due to the impressive nature of the building, not to mention its breath-taking view, which has even been named “Britain’s Favourite View”.

Set right on the shore of Wastwater, the deepest lake in England, from the hostel you can see the expanse of the lake plus the awe-inspiring mountains beyond. YHA Wasdale Hall really is a stunning rural retreat - you won't find any mobile phone signal or Wi-Fi here, so this location is perfect for getting away from the pressures of everyday life and relaxing in some beautiful surroundings.

A perfect base for climbing, walking or hiking holidays, you can even take on the infamous Scafell Pike from here as well as numerous woodland walks. The hostel’s extensive grounds lead right down to the beautiful lake and so you can even enjoy a delicious picnic on the lawn.

YHA Wasdale Hall sleeps up to 46 people in a range of private rooms: 2 x 4 bed, 2 x 5 bed (including double beds), 1 x 6 bed rooms (all bunks) and male and female dormitory beds. We have toilets and showers throughout the building and a self catering kitchen for guests to use.

Our cosy lounge centres around a log fireplace, which is great for keeping warm in the winter months. Our comfortable Chesterfield sofas are in keeping with the heritage of the building itself and we have a wide range of books available in the library end of the room. There is also a dining room on the ground floor with tables and chairs.

Due to our remote location and the local infrastructure, Wi-Fi is not available here, we don’t have a TV signal and mobile phone reception is very patchy. We do have a payphone for guest use. This is a real get away from it all location, so turn off your electronics and relax!

Hire the whole place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website, or use our live chat service for more information.

Breakfast

Kick start your day with our delicious hot and cold buffet breakfast - fill up on bacon, sausage and eggs as well as cereal and yoghurts. Our scrumptious brekkie is served from 7:30am to 9am. Breakfast is now available at 10% off - ONLY WHEN PRE-BOOKED (in-hostel price: £5.25). Simply add it to your basket at check out to save!

Lunch

We can provide a packed lunch including a freshly prepared sandwich, a delicious cake, cereal bar, a bottle of mineral water, a packet of crisps and a piece of fresh fruit. Eat in the hostel or take your packed lunch with you to enjoy during your day of exploring.

Restaurant

Eat in our wood-panelled dining room with dramatic views over the lake and the ‘Screes’. Order food off our homemade daily specials menu and indulge in a hearty pudding after a day in the mountains. The menu is served from 6pm until 8:30pm and depending how busy we are, non-residents can drop in too.

Kids Eat Free

One free children's meal is available per adult main meal from the main menu when purchased at the same time. This offer is not available on breakfast.

Drinks

Enjoy a drink off our extensive drinks list, with a range of delicious and very local ales, wines and soft drinks. We challenge you to find a nicer view!

Self-Catering Facilities

Fancy cooking for yourself after a day in the mountains? Don't fear - our well-stocked kitchen has everything you need to cater for all the family, including two ovens with two sets of hobs, a microwave, two kettles, two fridges and a freezer. There's lots of pots, pans, cutlery and crockery to serve up with too.
