A magical place to stay – this sprawling Victorian mansion is steeped in history and perched above its own three tier arboretum that’s managed by the National Trust. Its labyrinthine corridors and ornate grandeur captivate most guests. Langdale’s enviable location is unmatched with stunning views including the Langdale Pikes, Loughrigg Fell and rolling views all the way down to Lake Windermere and Bowness. This is a Youth Hostel from which the central fells can be explored and enjoyed immediately upon stepping through the front door.
FREE WI-FI available in communal areas for guests!
