The perfect place for peace, quiet and easy access to scenic landscapes for walking holidays, activity breaks and school trips. A mile from the nearest village, the hostel is a Lake District rural retreat 900ft above sea level. If you're on a hiking holiday, you can tackle Helvellyn from here or take a gentler walk around Ullswater. Don’t miss the spectacular 60ft Aira Force waterfall on Gowbarrow Fell. Meals and drinks are available in our licensed restaurant.
YHA Helvellyn is offering some fantastic packages over the festive season. Find out more here.
