Great value accommodation in the heart of the Lake District National Park, with access to incredible mountain trekking, world class rock climbing and extensive bridleways.
This is basic, budget accommodation in bunkbeds in a fantastic location.
The Langdale Valley is a hidden gem of the Lake District, a beautiful valley with an array of incredible mountains to climb. There is a footpath you can take from behind our bunkhouse which goes straight up to Stickle Tarn - a tranquil little lake where all the water for our bunkhouse and the cottage comes from - piped down the valley it is then filtered by UV light and tastes fantastic!
Walking up past the tarn you can see the well known Climber's dream - Pavey Ark, it is the largest cliff in the Langdales and a spectacular view. From here the choices are bountiful and if your legs are willing you can cross the moor over to Rossett Pike, Bowfell and on to Sca Fell and Scafell Pike.
Our bunkhouse is not luxurious, it is basic accommodation in the form of bunk beds (but these are full sized adult beds) we keep the bunkhouse very clean and as comfortable as possible. There are only 21 beds in the bunkhouse so its not like a large hostel. There are 3 twin rooms - which have only one bunkbed in each designed for 2 people to share - this is what is offered here on Airbnb.
The bunkhouse allows visitors on a budget to come and explore the wonderful Langdale Valley. There is the National Trust run Stickle Barn pub opposite where good food is served and the usual beverages. Alternatively, the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel also provides excellent food and a hearty breakfast.

We do not interact with our guests - we provide key codes so that you can access the bunkhouse at any time, this allows maximum flexibility for your arrival and departure. If you need anything during your stay or want to have a chat about where you should go we are more than happy to help. We live in the cottage next door.

The accommodation is basic - the twin rooms have a bunked and one chair in and thats all. The toilet and shower facilities are shared with the whole bunkhouse but separate for men and women. The bunkhouse is centrally heated and there is a drying room which runs on the central heating (in summer this is not on all day long) but for an hour or so in the evening and the morning.
Our aim is to provide dry, warm, comfortable and clean accommodation for the budget traveller - our mattresses are comfortable and are larger than the local hostels.
Please note there is no kitchen. We have put a kettle in each room but there is no facility to store or cook food, we wish we could but we just don't have the space.
We want to provide accommodation for outdoor and not alcohol enthusiasts! We will not tolerate excessive drinking and loud behaviour in our bunkhouse, we want all our guests to have a tranquil night's sleep. We allow well behaved dogs but please let us know before you book that you intend to bring one with you. We do not allow smoking anywhere in the bunkhouse. We have a basic bunkhouse: warm, clean and comfortable and not luxurious, there is no mobile phone reception in the bunkhouse due to thick walls, there is free wifi available 10m away and a payphone in the pub. Linen and towels can be provided for £5 per guest (this needs to be booked and paid for in advance).
