The Bunkhouse,

The bunk house, tastefully converted from a solidly built Lakeland stone and slate building, has two bunk rooms sleeping 7 and 13. There is a modern electric kitchen for you to easily manage your self catering arrangements. Plenty of parking is available for both car and minibus. This particular accommodation will best suit climbers and youth groups on Lakeland expeditions. Single bookings can be taken, but the Bunkhouse is an ideal facility for groups and is akin to the high mountain accommodation that abounds in the continental alpine areas. The Bunkhouse is open all year round.

The site is seasonal from March to mid November. In this modern, fast-moving society, the chance to sample the attractions of the Ullswater area is one not to be missed. Many have been inspired by the outstanding natural beauty of this place; including Wordsworth and the Lakeland Poets, and the famous artists and photographers who have, over the years, attempted to capture the beauty of Lakeland. The 3 reaches of Ullswater give opportunities for the sailor, wind surfer, and canoeist, plus the more leisurely sailing on the Steamer, which plys a regular scheduled service along this, the second largest lake.

For the fell walker you are at the base of both the Helvellyn and High Street range of mountains, with challenges for both young and not so young. Pony trekking and rock climbing are all available in the area.
