Elterwater Hostel makes us all proud in The Great Outdoors Reader Awards!

We are so pleased to announce that Elterwater hostel has achieved Bronze place in The Great Outdoors Reader Awards; hostel or bunkhouse of the year! 

The Great Outdoors Reader Awards are a democratic celebration of outdoor culture and all things outdoorsy. Competition was tight as over 18,000 votes across 15 categories were cast.

Here’s what The Great Outdoors had to say about our lovely hostel;

“Friendly”, “fantastic” and “awesome” were but a few of the superlatives voters used to describe Elterwater Independent Hostel. It is set in an idyllic location close to the Langdale Pikes. Others praised the “friendly and most helpful staff”, the “great food” and facilities including a well-equipped kitchen and “proper lounge”. It has a “great location for some fantastic walks with a super pub and restaurant just down the road” commented another voter.

In our opinion, Elterwater is a very worthy winner of this award! A shout out to Elterwater’s managers Nick Owen and Christine and their staff whose caring and friendly service clearly shines out and makes a fantastic impression on all who come to stay.
