YHA Langdale

High Close, Loughrigg, Ambleside, LA22 9HJ. England

Huge, labyrinthine and with a National Trust arboretum on the doorstep, YHA Langdale makes any group visit feel magical. This atmospheric Victorian mansion has space for over 100 people, a flagstoned meeting room located in the cellar, and endless period charm.

School trips can study biology and geography on site or get involved in a range of activities offered by the hostel, including archery, shelter building, guided walks, fire making and team challenges. Walkers will love having Loughrigg Fell, Silver Howe and the Langdale Pikes on their doorstep.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
