          Great facilities, we were in a large group, 20+ families and over 100 people in total spread across camping, pods, tepees and some in the hostel. It was good value, lots to do locally and easily accessible.

          We can take dogs in our Alternative Accommodation - Pods, Cabin, Bell Tents, Tipis and Camping. There is a charge of £5 per dog, and whilst we welcome dogs in the above areas they are not permitted in any of the buildings.

          There is a bus between Hawkshead village, via Ambleside, to Windermere. It's the Stagecoach 505. From Hawkshead village it is a mile walk to the hostel, along the road (which has no footpath).
