Welcome to our hostel

Hawkshead YHA is in a beautiful Regency mansion with stunning grounds overlooking Esthwaite Water in the Lake District. This is a great base to explore the beautiful village of Hawkshead, Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top, Grizedale Forest and the southern fells.

Enjoy good food and local ales in the hostel’s comfortable restaurant. Rooms have 3-6+ beds and facilities include TV, laundry, self-catering kitchen, games room and internet access.

Great for walking and cycling, nearby Grizedale Forest also offers some of the country’s best mountain-biking. Explore the surrounding Beatrix Potter country from here too, plus there’s easy access to the southern fells and Lake Windermere.
