About YHA Honister Hause
A must for dedicated walkers! This former quarry workers' house, at the summit of Honister Pass, is in true mountain country with easy access to England’s highest peaks. Steep valleys stretch down from the mountains to Derwentwater to create a beautiful and distinctive landscape. There’s a 400 year old working slate mine next door. After your day on the mountains, relax and enjoy a good meal in our licensed restaurant.
This property is also available for Exclusive Hire during the winter months. Click here for more details.

Is the hostel open every day of the year?
- Don’t miss the stunning views over Derwentwater from Castle Crag - the smallest of the Wainwrights. The hostel is a real rural retreat at the summit of Honister Pass - so we're great for outdoor activity breaks, climbing holidays and hiking holidays. If you want to explore the famous peaks of the Central Lake District or set off on a classic walking holiday route, stay at YHA Honister!
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.
