Lake District Flooding - Update 22/12/15, 12pm

Let’s start by thanking everyone, especially our guests and suppliers, for their continued offers and messages of support and encouragement. It reminds us how special we are to have such a dedicated group of team members, volunteers and guests who are all, without exception entirely understanding of the disruption caused by the flooding and tireless in their efforts to get back to normal. The latest position is as follows...

YHA Cockermouth – is now dried out and will opening as normal over the New Year.

YHA Helvellyn – remains inaccessible due to the damage caused to the only access track. We are working with our friends at the National Trust to effect repairs as soon as possible.

YHA Borrowdale – is now back up and running as normal.

YHA Ambleside – still has a soggy basement but is open for business as usual.

YHA Keswick – was hit the hardest and will be closed until March for essential repairs.

All other hostels are operating as planned so if you get the chance to pop in for a coffee or a pint, or for the night, it would be great to see you and to thank you for supporting the entire community affected. Whilst we are inconvenienced by this disruption, we know that it is just a matter of time before we are back to normal and that other people will suffer a much bigger impact to their homes and livelihoods. Where we are able to, we have offered the use of our properties to members of the community currently unable to return to their homes.

Another storm is forecast to hit Cumbria on Christmas Eve. If you are concerned about your travel arrangements, please give our team a call on 0800 0191 700

Thanks once again for everyone’s support. We hope to see you in Cumbria soon.
