This is a Youth Hostel from which the central fells can be explored and enjoyed immediately upon stepping through the front door.
A mixture of dormitory accommodation and private rooms for families and individuals in this large Victorian-style mansion. The grand social areas and corridors make this a building which guests will fall in love with.
