Accommodation at YHA Coniston Coppermines

Bed in a shared room

Dorms are not currently available. 

Dorm rooms have multiple beds and are shared with other people who may not be travelling together. They are usually more affordable than private rooms as you'll be booking a bed rather than the whole room.

A typical shared dorm room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest.

Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.

Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room. None of our dorm rooms have en-suite facilities.

Private rooms

Want some privacy? With a private room, you'll be booking the whole room for your stay.

Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard and reading light for each bed, plus a wash hand basin.

Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room. None of our private rooms have en-suite facilities.

Hire the whole place

Planning an overdue get-together or celebrating a birthday/anniversary? Looking for a base for your group's next adventure? Make your special occasion extra special with YHA Exclusive Hire.

You can hire the whole building at YHA All Stretton Bunkhouse and, with sole use of the property, come and go as you please. This property was originally the home of the manager of the old copper mines. Combining a remote mountain setting with a cosy, rural atmosphere, it makes a great base for walking and hiking holidays. Dogs are welcome too!

Manager Glen recommends: Planning a climbing holiday to scale the slopes of the Old Man of Coniston? Give yourself a head start by staying at Coniston Coppermines. Almost halfway up a mountain with a view to match, this rural retreat is surrounded by fells, allowing hillwalkers easy access onto Wetherlam and the Old Man of Coniston itself.
