A magical place to stay – this sprawling Victorian mansion is steeped in history and perched above its own three tier arboretum that’s managed by the National Trust. Its labyrinthine corridors and ornate grandeur captivate most guests. Langdale’s enviable location is unmatched with stunning views including the Langdale Pikes, Loughrigg Fell and rolling views all the way down to Lake Windermere and Bowness. This is a Youth Hostel from which the central fells can be explored and enjoyed immediately upon stepping through the front door.

The Hostel

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.

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.


Guests can begin the day with a scrumptious breakfast buffet that’s the toast of Trip Advisor. There is a hot full English option and cold continental buffet available with a selection of hot drinks and fruit juices. 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!


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 out on to the fells to enjoy during your day of exploring.

Supper Club

This hostel offers the YHA Supper Club menu. This is a two course meal served at a set time of 7pm and sold at a set price. Guests in the Youth Hostel will have the opportunity to all sit around the table together and share stories with their fellow travellers - this is the authentic hostelling experience!

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.


YHA Langdale has an alcohol license so you can choosen from a selection of beers, wines and spirits as well as hot and cold drinks.

We also have a small tearoom specialising in yummy homemade cakes that’s open during the day for both guests and passers-by.
