Great Langdale Bunkhouse, Great Langdale, Ambleside, Cumbria, LA22 9JU

Great Langdale Bunkhouse offers simple, clean and welcoming accommodation for individuals, small groups, families and larger groups of up to 20 people. Situated amidst some of the finest mountain scenery in England with immediate access to world class mountain biking, road cycling, walking, fell running and climbing. The accommodation is set up to allow you to explore the amazing mountains and is ideal for those who love the outdoors. The bunkhouse has 20 single beds divided into 3 twin rooms, one room of 6 and one room of 8 (all bunk beds). The rooms are simple but comfortable and each room has a double plug socket. The bunkhouse has biomass central heating throughout so its toasty warm with an endless supply of hot water with powerful showers. There are separate male and female shower and toilet facilities shared between all rooms. Well behaved dogs welcome with notice. The Lake District is a walker’s paradise and we know that the dog owner’s among you will love to be accompanied by your four-legged friend. We allow guests to bring their dogs with them provided they are never left alone in the room and are not allowed to wander freely around the bunkhouse or surrounding areas. When out walking, dogs should be kept on a lead at all times as the sheep are allowed to freely roam the Langdale Valley. We also ask that you only bring dogs that will not disturb other guests. The Great Langdale Bunkhouse has been privately owned by Sabrina and Ben since 2013 and was extensively renovated in January 2018.

This accommodation is featured on our map of the Lake District and here is its own website.
