Almond Lodge Helvellyn

Almond Lodge, Helvellyn is the perfect self catering hostel accommodation for groups near Ullswater in the Lake District.

Looking for a hostel that will blow your socks off with stunning views and a unique history? Almond Lodge has got you covered! Located about one-third of the way up Helvellyn Mountain, just over a mile from the village of Glenridding and the southern end of Ullswater, this beautiful stone building was originally home to the Greenside lead and silver mine offices and workshops in the 1840s. Fast-forward to the 1970s and it became a hostel, but after closing down 10 years ago, it was in desperate need of some love. That’s where the current owners came in – they bought it a few years ago and have given it a complete renovation. It’s now got all the modern amenities you need, while still retaining its original charm and a few quirky touches here and there. But let’s talk about the real showstopper – the views! One glance out the window and you’ll be greeted with breathtaking views of the Lake District.
