Elterwater Hostel

A newly independent 40 bed hostel situated in the picturesque village of Elterwater in the heart of the Langdale Valley.


Our aim is to provide a small independent hostel offering a warm and friendly welcome to guests old and new. The hostel is located in the peaceful village of Elterwater, in the Langdale valley, 15 minutes drive from Ambleside. The area has many walks for people of all abilities, from gentle riverside meanders to the challenge presented by the Langdale Pikes, Bowfell and Scafell. Banks, shops and other amenities are available in Ambleside. The area is also a favourite for both on and off-road cycling, rock climbing and many other outdoor activities. An ideal overnight stop on the Cumbria way. The hostel is an ideal venue for individuals, families, outdoor groups, schools and college trips.
