The Lake District actually has some of the most stunningly located youth hostels in the country, with beautiful lake views on offer and settings within key Lake District towns and villages a real draw. The cost savvy traveller option of a youth hostel or bunkhouse certainly allows you to have all the comforts enjoyed at a hotel but at a clean and basic level, letting you save your money for a few treats when you are out and about discovering the beautiful landscape.
Lake District youth hostels are also a great option for groups of friends, sometimes it can be hard to find accommodation cheaply when you have a group looking to book accommodation at the last minute or ad hoc with a sense of adventure! Youth hostels and bunk houses can be a great option for this – just pop in and see if there are any vacancies!
