Overview

Give your group’s Lake District adventure a touch of Scandinavian chic with a stay at YHA Patterdale. This quirky hostel has everything you need for a school trip or walking holiday, boasting characteristic wooden décor and open-plan spaces for dining, socialising and studying. You’ll find modern essentials like free Wi-Fi and a licensed bar, along with incredible views of the towering hills.

With an atmospheric bar selling local ales and a sunny patio area to relax in, YHA Patterdale makes a rural base to explore the Lake District. Sit down to group catering for breakfast and dinner, or take a packed lunch out into the fells for a day of walking or rock climbing (hold on to your sarnies).

With Ullswater just a short walk away and mountain ranges like Helvellyn in reach, we’re an ideal choice for groups of walkers and climbers. We also offer packages for geography and biology field trips – the area has fascinating wildlife and plenty of opportunities for studying the woodland and waterfalls nearby. For old-fashioned Lakeland fun, don’t miss a trip on an Ullswater steamer.
