About YHA Wastwater

This 200 year old country pile was originally used as a lakeside holiday home before becoming a National Trust property and still contains many of its original features including panelled windows, gabled roof and cornicing. Its beautiful black and white half-timbered façade, built in the 1820s, makes for an inspiring view as it stands out from the surrounding trees as you approach the Youth Hostel. The 19th century country manor is every bit as grand as its original name, Wasdale Hall, would suggest.

This delightful accommodation in Cumbria is often cited as a favourite hostel due to the impressive nature of the building, not to mention its breath-taking view, which has even been named “Britain’s Favourite View”. Set right on the shore of Wastwater, the deepest lake in England, from the hostel you can see the expanse of the lake plus the awe-inspiring mountains beyond.

YHA Wastwater really is a stunning rural retreat. You won't find any mobile phone signal or Wi-Fi here, so this location is perfect for getting away from the pressures of everyday life and relaxing in some beautiful surroundings.

A perfect base for climbing, walking or hiking holidays, you can even take on the infamous Scafell Pike from here as well as numerous woodland walks. The hostel’s extensive grounds lead right down to the beautiful lake and so you can even enjoy a picnic on the lawn!

In the evening you can relax after your busy day in the Lake District with a local ale and a delicious evening meal in the gorgeous wood panelled restaurant. Have a look at a sample menu of our evening meals here.

This property is also available for Exclusive Hire during the winter months. Click here for more details.

Manager recommends

  • Don’t miss the sunset glow on the Screes, shining down on the lake turning it into liquid gold in the summer and deep red in the winter - the morning and evening light in the valley is a photographers dream! Relax and soak up the scenery from the comfort of this National Trust rural retreat, the perfect contrast to days spent hiking, climbing or walking on an energetic outdoor activity holiday.
