Large Group Accommodation in Derwent Water for Holidays in the Lake District

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Derwentwater Independent Hostel, Keswick, Cumbria, sleeps 88 in 11 bedrooms.

Sleeps up to 88.

Derwentwater Independent Hostel is a large mansion in 17 acres of grounds, complete with a magnificent waterfall and hydro-electric scheme. We are in a glorious setting with views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The hostel is in an ideal location, just 2 miles from Keswick, the main town in the Northern Lakes with good transport links.

Sleeping accommodation is in bunkrooms. One sleeps 22 in a partitioned room, the others sleep between 4 and 10 each. The hostel has plenty of lounges, including a games room and table tennis room so plenty of different areas for socialising and relaxing. We are licensed and can run a full bar for big events, weddings, conferences. The views throughout the year are stunning from winter wonderlands, to midsummer sunsets and the golds and russets of the autumn woodlands and fellsides.

We offer full catering and have a reputation for good home made food and can tailor menus to your requirements and type of group.

We are an ideal country base for groups of children and adults wanting to do a variety of activities and offer residential packages. You can walk, climb, abseil, gorge scramble, mountain bike, canoe, sail, wind surf in the immediate area.

We are also ideally situated for educational visits, in particular geography and geology groups. We are popular with adult groups for get togethers and corporate team building events or a special venue for family reunions and celebrations.

Bring your friends to celebrate a special event. There is always plenty to do in the Lake District - whatever the weather. Good for groups of people who want to do a selection of different activities. The less active can enjoy the views from a walk on the lake shore whilst the more energetic can tackle England's highest mountains or the challenging mountain bike trails at Whinlatter Forest.

Exclusive use may be available for smaller groups, particularly out of season - please contact us to enquire.
