Keswick Hostel

Hostel Keswick

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

A recommended stop on Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk, YHA Borrowdale offers fine views and a warm, informal atmosphere. Beautifully located by the River Dervent in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Lake District and makes a good base for hiking and other outdoor activities.

This large Lakeland hostel has a fabulous valley location with fine mountain scenery and a warm, informal atmosphere. High-level adventure and family-friendly walking await you and bustling Keswick is only seven miles away with its cinema, theatre, pubs and restaurants.

The hostel evening meals are freshly prepared and wines, Cumbrian ales and spirits are available. River bathing in crystal clear water during summer and cosy log fires in winter. Accommodation is in 2-6+ bedded rooms and facilities include laundry, kitchen, internet access and evening meals.

I think it is a great place to stay for those who like outdoors. There is plenty of things to do around, trekking, climbing, canoeing etc..
