About Helvellyn

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.

Manager recommends

  • A lovely, rural retreat that's great for groups, families, school trips, couples and individuals. For walking holidays and hiking holidays, the best ascents of Helvellyn start from outside the door. Take some time out from your activity break and relax with a steam boat trip on the lake.
