About YHA Cockermouth

A handy base for cycling and touring the west Cumbrian coast and great walking in the quieter northwestern lakeland fells, this hostel is a converted 17th century watermill in an idyllic spot on the river Cocker. Perfectly located for hiking and all kinds of outdoor activity breaks, this has all the makings of a magical Lake District holiday you'll never forget. Self catering only but it’s only a 10 minute walk to the centre of this attractive market town with plenty of good pubs and restaurants.
