Our Lake District hostel - perfect for groups and families

Grasmere Hostelling

There’s nothing like visiting the stunning Lake District with friends or family to create wonderful memories, experience a fantastic day out and enjoy the stunning British countryside. Our Grasmere hostel is an accessible, rurally-located bunkhouse that provides the best of both worlds: all the amenities you need are just a stone’s throw from some of the best walks the area has to offer.

Why choose a hostel?

For groups and families, our independent hostel provides the perfect location to experience the world of backpacking, with group accommodation available to all in an area that promotes collaboration and teamwork.

Hostels are often ideally located for quick access to routes and walks, and our Grasmere hostel is no exception with easy access to a range of excellent walks with something for all levels, from those into hardcore hiking or groups looking for a slow and easy day out.

Why choose Grasmere?

There’s a reason we’re one of the best hostels in the area. Not only are our facilities modern, clean and safe - with bike racks, personal storage and parking included - but there is also availability for all different budgets, and different group sizes. With a total of 16 beds, there’s room for your party with plenty of space to spare. To truly experience the magic of the Lake District, there’s nothing like bringing your friends or family along to enjoy it all with you - and our Grasmere hostel can help make that happen.

With underfloor heating, hot showers and a guest kitchen, as well as social spaces including a lounge and dining space, you can be as social as you want, and enjoy the novelty of spending time together as a group during the evening as well as over the course of the day. We also offer excellent WiFi and USB charging for more technological travellers.

Whether you’re a fan of solo hikes, you love to use backpacking as the perfect way to get closer with that special someone, or a group outing into the Lake District sounds like the perfect summer activity, you’re going to need somewhere to stay.
