YHA Wastwater (Cumbria)
I was going to start this off with a bit of poetry for all you literary types, you know the stuff: Wastwater, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth of thy majestic lake And to the height of Scafell Pike, for goodness sake My soul can reach thee when I'm feeling ... down
Or, when feeling out of sight, in my nightgown.
But Elizabeth Barrett Browning said it much better than me
"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death."
In fact I feel the same way about Wastwater as Alfred Wainwright felt for his beloved Haystacks - where his ashes were scattered.
There are a goodly few reasons for this, I have to say, not least of which is the splendiferous Youth Hostel that stands on its shore.
So, lets get on with it shall we? Yes, too right!
So, how many ways do I love this place? I love its...
With it's own stretch of Wastwater, this is the closest you're ever going to get to a Lake in the Lakes. For us, with teenage children it was perfect. We could sit at the picnic table in the grounds and watch the kids playing by the water's edge, skimming stones and trying to throw one another in, but obviously those with younger little darlings will need their wits about them. It is important to remember that this is the deepest (and probably coldest) of all the Lakes.
This hostel undoubtedly takes the prize for the best YHA Building in the Lakes, if not the entire universe in my mind. I am a Tudor fanatic and anything looking remotely Tudor does it for me. It isn't actually Tudor, if truth be known, but it does look fantastic. Owned by the National Trust and managed by the YHA, Wasdale Hall as it's also called, was built around 1829 and still retains many of its original features including the servants' entrance, which I had to think twice about not using - I was on holiday after all.
With a majestic staircase, wood panelled dining room and vaulted cellar, the building is just as interesting inside as it looks from the lakeside.
If you've read any of my other YHA reviews you'll realise by now that this institution really thinks about feeding its guests, and feeding them well! With hearty breakfasts, tremendous packed lunches big enough to tackle Scafell Pike singlehandedly and restaurant quality evening meals this particular establishment also takes an award for best food.
Our breakfast was buffet style and we had the choice of breads, croissants, pastries, cereals, yoghurts, melon, and fresh fruit and juice. There was also a cheese selection, ham and salami, local butcher's sausage, boiled egg and beans all finished off with toast with toppings and endless cups of fair trade tea or coffee. And for less than a fiver to boot.
Picnic lunches, from about £4.00, are in two sizes of either five or seven items. Flapjack here was the best I've tasted - but whether this was because I was atop of England's highest mountain when I ate it I don't know.
If you have special dietary requirements, the wardens will do everything they can to cater for them, with enough notice that is. Don't ask for caviar though, that won't go down too well!
Evening meals are served between 6 and 8pm, with restaurant service. Everything we ate was delicious and the views from the dining room compete fiercely with that of Buttermere I have to say. Prices are similar to other hostels - you can easily have a three course meal for £11 although drinks would be extra of course.
Fair trade and organic wines feature on the wine list and from £8 were very reasonably priced and not a hint of vinegar. Local beers and spirits are also available. We never saw any ghosts though!
The hostel caters for 50 intrepid travellers in 6 rooms on the first floor of the building. There are
2 rooms with 4 beds
1 room with 6 beds
1 room with 8 beds
2 rooms with more than 10 beds
You know, as you climb the broad, thickly carpeted staircase, that your room is going to be of a high standard as hostels go. I remember feeling a little flutter of excitement as we went up to our room after checking in. I wasn't disappointed either. Each room has its own mountain name and a beautifully panelled wooden door.
Inside, our room for 6 had three bunks with individual reading lights, storage, a sink, shaver point and an electrical socket - the girls cheered at this point as taking the straighteners all that way without one would have been a disaster!
We stayed in May and although it was warm during the day, the nights were cool so we were glad of the central heating.
This hostel also takes the prize for best soundproofed rooms - no noise to be heard from anyone after 11pm. Wow! Maybe it was the thick walls that did it.
Below stairs, there is a vaulted cellar where a pool table lures you into a quick, friendly game. And, if you're anything like us this ends up being anything but quick or friendly. In fact, the competitive edge in all of us sneaks out where pool is concerned, especially when my husband believes his middle name is hurricane, whirlwind or strong gale at least.
There is a drying room at Wastwater, but alas, alack no automatic washing machine I'm afraid. There's just enough to help you dry your wet stuff out before the next day and that does the job. Boot racks are sufficient for the 50 possible visitors and there are enough hanging rails as well.
This was a sunny room at the front of the house with a vast array of equipment within. I admire anyone who can tackle their own cooking after a long, tiring walk and there were plenty people to admire when we stayed. I would say the balance was about 50/50 for catering/self catering in May. You can eat in the members' kitchen or bring your food into the dining room if it's not too busy. Better still, eat at a picnic bench outside!
Another sunny room, this time one where you can enjoy a quiet game of cards, read or plan the walk for tomorrow. We didn't use this room much but it was busy. It was also tastefully decorated, warm and welcoming.
I never saw a TV at the hostel. Hurray! Another thing that I love about it.
These were in demand as there weren't too many of them. Lucky for us our room was right next to a toilet and shower, so we kind of queued from the door as a result of exhaustion more than anything else. No complaints about these facilities at all. The kids might have said there were a few more midges than they would have liked, but that's on account of a Lake being in the front garden and a wood in the back.
We stayed over the May Day Bank Holiday last year and we paid £80 per night for a room for 6, room only. This works out at less than £14 each for a group of 6. Currently the prices are £13.95 for adults and £10.50 for under 18s. This is relatively cheap as hostels go, mainly because of the difficulty you have in reaching it.
Is there anything else I love about this place?
I certainly loved walking down the stairs rather than up them, especially after climbing Scafell Pike! But apart from that, I think I've pretty much covered it.
+++How do you find this little gem? +++
The printed instructions given by the hostel are incredibly complicated and we found them just as complicated in practice.
The best option I can give you is to research the route carefully online and have a clear plan. Make sure you have breakdown cover, because you are going to be miles away from anywhere and also try to make your journey in daylight. This is in the depths of darkness at night and it's even further from civilization (on some parts of the journey) than the one to Buttermere.
I don't want to put anyone off, you just have to err on the side of caution.
For the adrenaline junkies travelling from the central lakes you can test drive your car over the Wrynose and Hardnott passes to Eskdale Green. These are steeply dramatic roads in places and ones that might scare the pants off the anxious travellers amongst us. This route is often impassable in winter and very crowded in summer.
The hostel website gives this transport information:
How do you get to this Youth Hostel:
From south follow A590 to Greenodd, then A595 to Broughton in Furness then Nether Wasdale. From North take the A595 from Whitehaven, at Gosforth. turn off for Nether Wasdale.
Stagecoach X6 Whitehaven - Ravenglass (passes Seascale & Ravenglass stations), alight Gosforth, 5 miles, then walk or Taxi. Gosforth Taxis 019467 25308. Taxibus service on Thurs, Sat & Sun must be booked by 6.00pm previous day.
Seascale Station (not Sun) 8 miles. Irton Rd (Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway) 5 miles.

For those with the wanderlust, other hostels are a good day's walk away as follows.
Eskdale 6 Miles
Black Sail 7 Miles
Honister Hause 8 Miles
Borrowdale 9 Miles
You have to bear in mind that these are not flat miles and in the case of Borrowdale, if you want to take in Scafell Pike en-route you also have the climb and descent to consider. These 9 miles are probably worth about 15 on the flat, but what glorious miles they are!
I hope that my love of Wastwater, and Wasdale Hall has managed to rub off and has given you somewhere to consider for a walking trip, a family get together or to just go see the highest mountain in England and climb it if you're up for it! It's worth every step and if a bunch of toddlers that I saw doing it can complete it, you can!

YHA Derwentwater (Cumbria)
Barrow House, now YHA Derwentwater, was built in the 1790s by the eccentric and wealthy Joseph Pocklington. Coincidentally, tourist numbers were also going up in the Keswick area at that time and the owner wanted to encourage this, but he also wanted to maintain the "Oldy Worldy Charm" that tourists come to love (and expect ... evidently).
So, further up the road from the house he had a hermitage built and advertised for a resident hermit - purely for the tourists' sake, you understand. The job description, however, was quite demanding stating that the incumbent could not, under any circumstances, cut his hair or fingernails and if he spoke to any one it would mean instant dismissal. The contract was for a number of years. It's still advertised in the Keswick job centre, apparently, as no-one went for it, surprise surprise.
But what's the place like today, you ask.
I have to say that the Georgian building is still as gloriously imposing as it would have been when first built. Standing in impressively spacious grounds it boasts its own waterfall, generating enough electricity to power the place even when packed to the rafters. This isn't a natural water feature though. Yes, you guessed it; Joe Pocklington wanted an additional attraction to his home, so sent his navvies out with all manner of gardening weaponry to conquer the hillside behind the house to create one!
Inside, the building lacks some of the grandeur you might expect after being so impressed by the facade. The décor and carpeting are showing signs of wear and tear but it's functional and as the YHA only class the hostel as a three star, you aren't going to get anything spectacular in that area. It is clean and well run however and that's the main thing we look for in a hostel.
A storm porch is provided for you to get rid of your wet gear and boots and as long as you don't meet a crowd, you'll be OK as it is a bit of a squeeze with more than five people.
At reception, which is open 8.30 am to 10.30 pm, you are greeted by very friendly wardens who can actually remember you when your visits are six months apart as ours were. Or does that say more about us? Were we so badly behaved the first time around I wonder?
Check in is very smoothly dealt with and general advice was offered about the hostel and meal routines. We ordered our breakfasts, packed lunches and evening meals from here - the blackboard has all the choices for the day, so no fiddly bits of paper to have to share.
We've stayed here twice now; once in January and once in July. The first time was in a room for 5 in the annexe with a rear view room (functional but a bit gloomy) and the second was a room for 8 at the front of the house with a truly outstanding view of Derwentwater. We couldn't have asked for more.
All rooms are comfortable, with bunks, individual reading lamps, a sink, shaver point and electrical socket. There are plenty shelves and hooks for your rucksacks and clothing. All light bulbs are low energy in line with YHA policy for reducing electricity usage.
===Toilets and Showers===
These are private and clean and offer refreshingly powerful showers making the pain of a long fell walk melt away. They also give you a few precious minutes of peace - if you're anything like me that is! Enough space to swing a small cat, I'd say.
This is a cavernous room that was a bit cold in January, mainly due to so few people staying there but busy and loud in July. Food is collected from a separate serving room and all of it was delicious as Youth Hostels go.
Breakfasts are buffet style and offer a great choice, including porridge for those who can't live without getting their oats every day.
We could have had a range of fruit including prunes and apricots (probably not advisable with a long walk ahead), yoghurts, cereals, muesli, cheese, meat, freshly cut bread, toast, croissants, and four or five cooked items - bacon, sausage, tomatoes, beans and mushrooms. Fair trade coffee and tea and fresh juices are also available.
Really, I couldn't complain for about £4 and no-one walked away hungry.
There are two sizes of packed lunches and the hostel offers several fillings between your white or brown bread, including veggie options. We were more than satisfied with the seven items in our larger, bumper pack (2 sarnies, fruit, carton of juice, crisps, flapjack or similar and small pack of 3 biscuits or a fruesli bar). In fact we had items to spare when we arrived at our next port of call. A bargain at £4.80.
We booked our table in the dining room and enjoyed three courses of very tasty, locally sourced food. The average cost was about £11 for a three course meal. I thought the soup, chilli and bread and butter pudding was perfect for January. In July, I enjoyed a tasty pate, Borrowdale trout (just can't resist this) and a fruit salad with ice cream. All this was washed down with a bottle of organic, fair trade wine for about £9. After the last spoonful of icecream I discovered I couldn't move. Well, not until the coffee and mints that is.
This is more of a games room really as there's a pool table and table football hogging centre stage, so not very relaxing to be honest. OK if you don't mind the noise.
Not really a room, more a space in a large hallway. I'm not a telly fan I have to say, especially when pushed for time or after a tiring day out. But the kids enjoyed an hour of mindless gratuitous violence which kept them out of my hair, so all was right with the world.
This is a fantastic communal space and obviously well used at Derwentwater. One evening we brought a take away meal back - mainly on account of intense badgering by the kids- and really enjoyed the atmosphere, getting to know a few of our fellow Wainwright fanatics. There's plenty of everything you might need to store, prepare, cook and eat your own food. No bringing your own alcohol though, you naughty people, as the hostel has a table licence, so you must hand your cash over at reception for a decent bottle of local beer (by all accounts).
There is a cosy room with a washer, spinner and large sink/drainer for all you domestic obsessive types. There are also plenty of racks and rails for boots and coats if the hostel isn't full that is. If it is full, I think you might struggle to find your stuff.
Well table tennis room actually. Many a laugh was had in here, especially following a glass or two of the falling down water! Great for a family tournament; bats and balls available at reception.
A front lawn big enough for a family game of football or rounders, woodland trails at the back of the hostel and its own waterfall mean there's plenty to do outside. Or, sit on a picnic bench and watch everyone else run round like idiots, while you take in the scenery and read about wandering lonely as a cloud.
Staying in January is cheaper than July, Saturdays and Sundays are more expensive than staying midweek. Currently individual charges are from £15.95 for adults while children under 18 start at £11.95. A family of five, like ours, would pay about £68 per night in a room for 6, so in theory we could take an extra body. Room allocations for the 88 beds are as follows
1 room with 4 beds
2 rooms with 5 beds
3 rooms with 6 beds
3 rooms with 8 beds
1 room with 10 beds
1 large dormitory for the rest - I've lost count by now.
This is a comfortable, welcoming hostel with all the facilities you could possibly need for a couple of nights. I wouldn't stay longer than that however. The food was amazingly good quality and I felt that the wardens were outstanding in their friendliness and can do attitude.
The hostel offers winter walking courses, providing all the necessary equipment such as ice-picks and crampons and this was something that we are considering in the future.
I would say that Borrowdale YHA would be a better bet for those with mobility difficulties as there are no rooms on the ground floor at this hostel and I noticed no particularly helpful adaptations either.
Derwentwater Youth Hostel is situated in an idyllic lakeside location, on the B5289 from Keswick to Borrowdale, leading to the infamous Honister Pass ( see my YHA Buttermere review).
It's about 100m from a ferry landing stage at Ashness Bridge, where you can catch a cruiser around the Lake, stopping off in Keswick, a bustling market town with Booth's supermarket (a bit more upmarket than Tesco I'd say). Lots of cafes, restaurants, a cinema and the theatre on the lake as well as the legendary pencil museum, cars of the stars and the climbing wall await you, not to mention a leisure centre with waves and a slide!
If you are a keen walker you are surrounded by some wonderful peaks, including Catbells, Skiddaw, Blencathra, Glaramara and the Newlands Round. Lower level walks are also available and you can easily walk to the other YHAs in the locality. We walked from Buttermere to here 9 miles away and then onto Borrowdale 5 miles away and the modern hostel in Keswick is only 2 miles away. Walks from the door, in all directions are suited to all abilities.
National Express buses regularly arrive and depart from Keswick although I'm not sure where to/from.
A local Stagecoach bus runs to and from Keswick town centre (Booth's) to the end of the driveway.
The nearest railway stations are in Penrith and Windermere which are both about 20 miles away. Then it would have to be a bus to Keswick and another from Booth's to the hostel.
Whatever your transport arrangements, Derwentwater is fab for families, groups or independent travellers and there's not a hermit in sight!

YHA Borrowdale (Cumbria)
If you're heading to Borrowdale Youth Hostel on foot, you could be doing Wainwright's Coast to Coast footpath, or the Cumbria Way. Either way, it's highly likely that you'll also be very wet, as this hostel in Longthwaite, is a mere stone's throw away from Seathwaite which happens to be the wettest inhabited place in the British Isles ... with an average of 3,300 mm - that's 130 inches in old money - of cold, wet rain that's invariably horizontal!
But panic ye not, because, if indeed you are drenched to your undies, this hostel has everything that the weather beaten-traveller needs!
The building is a long cedarwood 'cabin' set in beautiful gardens with its very own section of the river Derwent. If you are driving to the hostel, there are ample parking spaces outside the hostel for cars and mini buses, but coaches won't make it up to the drive and over the hump backed bridge, so there's a drop off point some 400m down the road.
There are two dedicated parking spaces for wheelchair users.
A storm porch welcomes you and gives you chance to get rid of your boots and drip all over a non-carpeted surface before you check in. There's enough space here for a dozen people or so, as it's highly likely there'll be a few other drowned rats joining you.
Reception is open from 7.30a.m until 10.30 pm and doors are locked at 11.00 prompt. Occasionally the blind is down. But ring the bell and someone appears within a couple of minutes.
It's here that you check in, order your meals and settle your bill at the end. Thankfully, the YHA now accepts debit and credit cards so you don't have to carry vast amounts of cash with you. You can keep adding bits to your tab, and I have to say they've never got this right yet. They always manage to give us something for free, yippee!
Reception is also the shop and a place where the kids can hire board games, buy a table tennis ball or get their YHA card ink stamped with the unique design of the hostel. The wardens are a gold mine of local information and they post the weather forecast here to help you plan the next day's activities.
Check in is quick and efficient and you are given up to three keys to your room, according to the number of occupants. There are 86 beds at the hostel, organised as follows:
8 rooms with 2 beds
2 rooms with 3 beds
5 rooms with 4 beds
6 rooms with 6 beds
1 room with 8 beds
Two of the rooms as well as toilet and shower facilities are designed for wheelchair users and are situated almost next to reception.
We have stayed here four times now, and the standard has been pretty consistent. The rooms have bunks, which you have to make and strip yourself - all good character building stuff- individual reading lights, a sink and plenty box storage and hooks for your coats and rucksacks. Radiators keep the room toasty and you have a great view of the grounds too.
Some ear plugs might be worth considering if you're travelling independently. There's always someone who snores - for me it's my better half, bless him!
===Shower and Toilet Facilities===
Shower and toilet facilities are great. When you arrive after a long day's walking the best part of the day seems to be standing in a decent, hot shower while you look forward to a tasty evening meal. My kids would argue that it's finding that there's an electric socket to plug the hairdryer and straighteners in. (Yes, they carry these in their rucksacks when we go on a week's door to door walk, can you believe!?)
Food is generally good quality, although I was a little disappointed with my evening meal choices (February half term). The potato and leek soup, £2, was too thin for my liking and when I ordered sausage and mash (£6.95) I was expecting a great circle of Cumberland sausage, but it was a couple of the run of the mill types. The veg and gravy were a bit bland too I have to say. There were traditional puddings, ice cream and fruit salad available for dessert (£2 average). Children's meals were available for about £4.
Breakfast was better though. A selection of fruit juices, cereals including the option of porridge, toast, croissants, meat, cheese, yoghurts, bread and cooked breakfast meant that no-one set off into the cold hungry. As it turned out, it wasn't that cold for February and we had three drays on the trot - that's dry days by the way. Full price of breakfast was£4.50. Children could have breakfast at half price.
Our packed lunches were fantastic. You have a choice of two packs - junior and standard: £4 and £5.10 respectively. The first has five items of your choice and the second has seven. Your sandwich choices have to be given to the warden the night before, and then everything is put on the tables in the lounge for you to choose from. This would win my best packed lunch award if there was one, simply because if you want one sandwich and six lumps of flapjack you can do just that! Providing you get there early enough that is!
If the weather had been fairly typical, and we had returned soaked to the skin, then we could have made use of the excellent drying facilities. The large drying room has two washing machines, plenty of racks and rails with hangers, as well as newspaper for packing your boots out with. There's a huge sink for hand washing your smalls too.
Another award I could present to this hostel is for the best open-fire. The lounge is so cosy in winter, you can catch a few people snoozing away quite happily in their comfy chairs, which, unfortunately, might look like care home chairs if you looked at them in a different light.
There are plenty of games, jigsaws, books and magazines to read as well as a computer for Internet access here, paid for at reception. We enjoyed a decent and cheap( £6) bottle of wine and the obligatory game of cards. There was a loud group of people celebrating a 50th birthday so the atmosphere was quite lively. Usually this room is quiet.
After dinner, the dining room is quite busy with groups of people engrossed in quite serious games of anything they happen to get their hands on at reception. Often these games are played to the death, with very serious competitors arguing about each and every move. Sometimes school groups take a hold of their tables and guard them with their lives until they leave. Occasionally little kids are running around in their PJs, burning up their last bit of energy, you hope, before bed.
A smaller room, off the dining room, has the all important TV and table tennis table. When we were there the French/Scottish rugby was on. Our friend, from Edinburgh, had a vested interest in watching, obviously. But, the TV needed a technical wizard to get it going. So, someone cleverly asked a teenager. Result!
This is off the dining room and there are plenty of shelves, two fridges, three cookers and two sinks as well as a hot water boiler for those people who want to self cater. The number of people staggering in with their weekend's shopping from Booths in Keswick was, indeed, quite staggering. I'm not fond of cooking when I'm away from home and certainly not after I've walked up a big hill. So I didn't use this room much.
The walking available nearby is outstanding. Alfred Wainwright called Borrowdale "the fairest valley of the Lake District" and I would heartily agree.
With Scafell Pike at one end of the valley and Keswick at the other there's something for everyone. There are other smaller, but equally satisfying climbs nearby including Catbells, Glaramara and Great Gable amongst others.
You can enjoy a leisurely stroll on the Allerdale Ramble to Derwentwater, board a launch to take you to Keswick and catch a bus back. The buses are expensive, however, as our family of five paid £18 for a one way trip from Keswick.
If you want to go out for a pint and a meal, the Scafell Hotel, in Rosthwaite, has a bar that serves excellent food and a good pint of local ale. We took this option on our third night and were well satisfied with the food here. The journey back, along part of the Honister Pass, in the dark, needed torches and headlights so bear this in mind.
We stayed Friday, Saturday and Sunday night and the cost was £64.95 for Friday and £72.95 for Saturday and Sunday. This was for a bunk room for six, room only.
We are YHA members, paying £22 a year for discounts on every overnight stay. Without the membership you will pay £3 per adult more and £1.50 per child.
Current prices are £17.95 for adults and £13.95 for under 18s. It's worth ringing the hostel directly to get the best deal or room combinations as the Internet booking system doesn't always do this for you.
Tel: 0845 371 9624
Fax no: (+44) 17687 77393
===How to get there===
From Keswick follow the B5289 to Borrowdale. Look for YHA signs at crossroads after Rosthwaite. Make sure you go past the Derwentwater hostel on your left as you drive around the lake.
Nearest bus stop 400yards. Borrowdale Rambler No. 79 during the day to/from Keswick 7 miles away.
Nearest station is in Penrith which is 25 miles away. You can then catch a bus to Keswick, then bus from Keswick to Borrowdale.

If you're planning a walking route between hostels, there are a few nearby to consider.
Honister Hause is two miles away; Derwentwater is five miles away and has spectacular views of the lake; Buttermere, over the Honister Pass, is 6 miles away and Keswick, in an attractive part of the town is seven miles away.
We walked from Derwentwater to here last year and passed Watendlath Tarn, where the local Borrowdale Trout are fished. It's like stepping back in time, but thankfully to a scene with a tea room and toilets!
I would recommend this hostel for families, groups having a special gathering, independent travellers and those who are wheelchair users.
It's a warm and comfortable hostel with a very friendly atmosphere. Just try to book your stay when the weather's dry and you'll be able to really relish the totally awesome scenery. Good luck!
