About YHA Eskdale
For your next activity break in Cumbria, explore this quieter corner of the Lake District or go sightseeing from this purpose-built, child-friendly rural retreat, nestling among the fells and set in its own extensive grounds. You’ll find local walking routes to suit all abilities and interesting trails nearby. Or, visit Hardknot Roman Fort, the stone circles at Burnmoor, Stanley Gyll Falls or the Cumbrian Coast, all good destinations for your school trip. The hostel has a wildlife garden and nature trail and great family meals are served here. Have a look at a sample menu here.

Hostel Closing Times:
Is the hostel open every day of the year?
- Don't miss the hostel's wildlife garden and nature trail - a relaxing contrast to the high adrenaline activity breaks or energetic walking holidays. The 15 acres of grounds at this rural retreat are a microcosm of the Lake District and are great for learning about Eskdale’s wildlife - great for school trips too.
Fancy spending some time in the stunning Lake District making a difference? YHA offers volunteering opportunities for individuals or groups throughout the year including student placements, week & weekend working parties or as much time as you’re willing to give. Tasks are varied and can be tailored to your interests or you can learn lots of new skills. If you’re interested in helping out please use either the hostel details above or contact our volunteering team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
