About YHA Wasdale Hall

Next to "Britain's Favourite View"

Choose YHA Wasdale Hall and get a school trip or activity break as grand as its name. From action-packed watersports to inspiring educational packages, our spectacular location (next to England’s deepest lake) makes a great backdrop for adventures. Although built in the 1820s, our hostel offers an on-site meeting room for studying, a games room, and a fully licensed bar selling local ales.

Walking groups and school trips can spread out in our atmospheric social spaces, or cosy up next to our log fireplace. There’s a wide range of books to read and you can enjoy group catering for breakfast, lunch and evening meal – all with a breathtaking view of course.

Our mountainous surroundings make us ideal for climbing and walking groups, or you could try paddling, canoeing and kayaking a stone’s throw away. The mighty Scafell Pike is just a few miles walk away if you fancy taking on England’s highest mountain too. Geography and biology students can have a field day in our area too, learning about our fascinating Lakeland flora and fauna.
