Positive Reviews

Beautiful location

This bunkhouse is a great choice for those looking for stunning views and fast access to the countryside the Lake District has to offer. Guests like having the great local pub so close by in addition to two local hotels which makes getting dinner convenient and hassle free.

Comfy and warm

With wider than average beds and plenty of hot water this guesthouse offers a comfortable place to crash after a long day walking in the mountains.

Good value for money

If you're travelling on a budget and don't mind the simple life then this could be a good option for the area.

Negative Reviews

Too basic for some

If you're just looking for a place to sleep at night then this could be an option to consider but several guests have found the bunkhouse to be too simplistic for their tastes. The lack of basic facilities, such as Wi-Fi or a kettle to make a cup of tea can make staying here feel a bit bleak.

Small rooms starting to look tired

A common issue with this bunkhouse is the size of the rooms. Many reviewers have said that they are very small which is a particular problem as the property does not offer a communal area or kitchen. There have also been comments about the quality of the carpets which could do with an update.

Tricky to find

Several guests feel that the bunkhouse could be better sign posted from the road as it is difficult to find.
