Youth Property Type: 
Large Group Hostel in the Central Lake District, UK

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Grasmere Independent Hostel, Cumbria, Lake District, sleeps 14-24 in 5 bedrooms.

Four star group accommodation in a five star location, right in the heart of the Lake District.

We are proud to be assessed by the ETC as a four star hostel. We hope that this in turn will reassure those who have never stayed in a modern hostel that they will find us friendly, clean and very comfortable.

A Conference/Class room is available that seats 16 people in a boardroom or 'U' shape scenario.

No large dormitories here (the biggest bedroom sleeps six). All bedrooms have full controllable central heating. All the beds are made up with duvets and cotton sheets. All bunks are adult size and yes, you can sit up without banging your head. All have individual bedside lights, personal lockers (lockable) and every bedroom has wonderful mountain views. If you’re worried about traffic noise, don’t be - there isn't any.

Four of the five bedrooms have bathrooms en suite and the fifth bedroom’s bathroom is right alongside.

Our dining room seats twenty four and is right alongside the two commercially fitted stainless steel kitchens, one of which has a six ring cooker with large oven, a large fridge and group size grill.

In the next kitchen there is a four ring cooker with oven and a smaller fridge/freezer. Finally three microwaves, grills, toasters, kettles, all pots and pans and crockery that a group needs.

On the same floor as the kitchen and dining room are additional showers, a Nordic sauna, commercial style laundry, and a superb large drying room.

When you want to sit back and relax, try our lounge which overlooks the whole valley, or pop down into the village to sample the many cafes and restaurants

Our hostel car park is right alongside the hostel and a lockable bike store is available.

Should you wish to see the hostel floor plans, more photos or show your fellow guests what we have to offer, then do visit our website.

If you want a special group meeting in a very special place then why not have it here, with us.
