Lake District Flooding - Update 08/12/15, 3.30pm

Muddy – very muddy! That’s how the team are describing conditions in the Lakes as the clean up operations conditions continue. The good news is that access is getting much easier with the A66 for the North Lakes and A591 for the Southern Lakes all now open and passable with care.

Now that water levels have receded and normal services are being restored we can now provide the following updates.

YHA Keswick with its stunning riverside location has borne the brunt of the flooding and will be closed for repairs until the end of January.

YHA Ambleside has had some flooding and as a result has limited capacity; however we are happy to confirm that we are open for business as usual.

YHA Borrowdale has now been reconnected to its water supply and is once again open for business as usual.

YHA Cockermouth has been flooded – but a clean up project is already underway.

Our team are currently making contact with any guests who have bookings that may be affected by this disruption, to discuss suitable alternative plans. If you have any questions or concerns, then please call us on 01629 592700

We will continue to keep everyone updated with news and progress. Please revisit this page, or follow @YHAOfficial on Twitter and YHA (England & Wales) on Facebook.

And finally, please join us in sending best wishes of support to everyone in our communities affected by these events. Let's hope that the next band of rain doesn’t compound the problems!

Please watch this space for the next updates – as soon as anything changes we will let you know.
