Due to the extensive flood damage in 2016 and the refurbishment works taking place, we are not able to offer any catered meals for families or individual travellers at YHA Keswick until 1st March 2017.
Guests now have access to the new self-catering kitchen, however there is no additional social space whilst we complete the refurbishment. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Whilst we complete the works at YHA Keswick there is very limited bike storage on-site.
We are undergoing extensive refurbishment following the flooding last year to upgrade and improve our guests facilities. Works will continue until next year but we remain open throughout. Works include reconfiguring the ground floor social spaces to provide a new combined reception/café bar and dining with French doors opening over the river plus a new self-catering kitchen and social space with AV facilities and free wifi. In addition we will be providing new guest accommodation with all en-suite bedrooms and lake facing private balconies.
This town centre Youth Hostel has excellent access to the North Lakes Fells, and easy access to the amenities of this busy tourist town. For cycling, the hostel is perfectly placed on long distance routes the Coast 2 Coast and End to End and for roadies, Honister Newlands and Whinlatter Passes are close by as well as the family friendly Railway Trail to Threlkeld.
Overlooking the River Greta and Fitz Park with far reaching views to Latrigg and Skiddaw, YHA Keswick has small rooms with 2-6 beds. There is also a first floor lounge with veranda. Less than five minutes' walk to town centre and less than ten minutes' walk to the Lake, YHA Keswick is ideally places for days out.
Take the launch across Derwentwater and climb Catbells before an evening stroll through the town to Friars Crag to enjoy the view down the lake. The hostel also makes a great base for a walk up Skiddaw – the walk starts from just outside the hostel door! Near to leisure centre with pool and indoor climbing. Don’t miss the Pencil Museum and The Puzzling Place.
FREE WI-FI available in communal areas for guests!
