YHA Caldbeck Bunkhouse

Wigton, Cumbria, CA7 8HA

Only available for Exclusive Hire.

This hostel is only available to book for YHA Exclusive Hire.


Formerly a private shooting lodge and country retreat, this large Georgian house retains many of its original features, including marble fireplaces with open fires, ornate ceilings, cast iron balustrades and walled gardens.

Set in a wonderfully rural location, Caldbeck Bunkhouse is an excellent base for groups visiting the Lake District, nestling at the foot of the northern fells with outstanding views of the rolling hills. It’s also only 15 miles from Carlisle, the county town of Cumbria.

Accommodation at YHA Caldbeck Bunkhouse

Hire the whole place

This large Georgian bunkhouse has 38 beds as well as retaining many of its original features and is only available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you. We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire. You can check availability for Exclusive Hire on our dedicated website. Your group can self-cater or, if you let us know in advance, we can do some of the catering for you including barbecues and buffets. Contact YHA Caldbeck Bunkhouse directly for more information.
