About Arnside

YHA Arnside will be under new Enterprise management from 16th February 2014. It will also undergo a renovation and will re-open from 1st May 2014. Bookings between these dates cannot be made.

A real find for cheap family breaks if you love Lake District holidays but could do without the summer crowds. This large Edwardian house above Morecambe Bay is perfect for uk family breaks and boasts great views of the Lake District mountains. It’s a good touring base for activity breaks in the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, and if you're into walking holidays there’s plenty of walks nearby. Those looking for birdwatching holidays will enjoy the RSPB reserve and butterfly lovers shouldn’t miss Arnside Knott. Enjoy good food in our comfortable, licensed restaurant.

Is the hostel open every day of the year?

Manager recommends

  • Take the opportunity of a guided cross-bay walk and experience being where the tide will cover for a different view of Morecambe Bay, a different view of life. Also fantastic, is the walk round the coast and back over the Knott, just 2 hours but it seems like a whole walking holiday! A cheap family break with a difference.
