The Space

The Langdale Valley is a hidden gem of the Lake District, a beautiful valley with an array of incredible mountains to climb. There is a footpath you can take from behind our bunkhouse which goes straight up to Stickle Tarn - a tranquil little lake where all the water for our bunkhouse and the cottage comes from - piped down the valley it is then filtered by UV light and tastes fantastic!
Walking up past the tarn you can see the well known Climber's dream - Pavey Ark, it is the largest cliff in the Langdales and a spectacular view. From here the choices are bountiful and if your legs are willing you can cross the moor over to Rossett Pike, Bowfell and on to Sca Fell and Scafell Pike.
Our bunkhouse is not luxurious, it is basic accommodation in the form of bunk beds (but these are full sized adult beds) we keep the bunkhouse very clean and as comfortable as possible. There are only 21 beds in the bunkhouse so its not like a large hostel. There are 3 twin rooms - which have only one bunkbed in each designed for 2 people to share - this is what is offered here on Airbnb.

Guest Access

The bunkhouse allows visitors on a budget to come and explore the wonderful Langdale Valley. There is the National Trust run Stickle Barn pub opposite where good food is served and the usual beverages. Alternatively, the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel also provides excellent food and a hearty breakfast.

Interaction with Guests

We do not interact with our guests - we provide key codes so that you can access the bunkhouse at any time, this allows maximum flexibility for your arrival and departure. If you need anything during your stay or want to have a chat about where you should go we are more than happy to help. We live in the cottage next door.

The Neighborhood

We live in a wonderful community, beautiful landscapes, friendly people - it is very safe.
There is so much to do here for the outdoor enthusiast - rock climbing, ghyll scrambling, walking, trekking, running, cycling, kayaking, enjoying good food at country pubs.

Getting Around

Luckily for us there is a local bus that comes straight to our shared drive with the Stickle Barn Pub. From Ambleside its the 516 and the stop required is the New Dungeon Ghyll, its a lovely scenic route into the valley.
From London or the North you can get the train into Windermere (via Oxenholme) from Windermere there are several buses to Ambleside.

Other Things to Note

The accommodation is basic - the twin rooms have a bunked and one chair in and thats all. The toilet and shower facilities are shared with the whole bunkhouse but separate for men and women. The bunkhouse is centrally heated and there is a drying room which runs on the central heating (in summer this is not on all day long) but for an hour or so in the evening and the morning.
Our aim is to provide dry, warm, comfortable and clean accommodation for the budget traveller - our mattresses are comfortable and are larger than the local hostels.
