Alcock tarn, the lake district
Looking for 'B&B' accommodation to do your exploring from in the Lake District? Ambleside hostels are well placed to serve your needs and give great value, right in the centre of the National Park, you can reach any walk, any fell, any lake, any peak with ease and return in a day. Quality but a bit unusual tourist accommodation. Great for large and small groups, either single sex or mixed as long as they are not stag, hen or drinking groups!

Cottage holidays

- book the whole cottage for a day, a few nights or a week - more if you want too.
Large comfortable lounge/common room, with fire and piano. A great place to relax in after a day in the lakes.
Put your feet up, think beautiful thoughts about what you will be doing next.

Team building, youth and student groups, educational trips, field studies, D of E award groups.

We are pleased to accommodate educational training, team building, student and educational groups with up to 30 students or trainees. Best times for this sort of group are spring and autumn when the whole hostel can be hired as a 40 bed unit at reduced cost. The dining room which seats 30 can be used as a study base and 3 minibusses can be parked in the hostel car park.
Teachers, coach divers (free PSV parking close by) and assistants can be accomodated in smaller rooms.
We do not provide evening meals, however there are outside catering companies who will be pleased to give prices either using our kitchen facilities or bring food in. Packed lunches to your requirements can be outsourced too.
We often get long stay field study students in the summer, please contact us before booking as long stays present us with some logistical problems re room allocation. However we are very pleased to see you all.
