Weekends away


ESKDALE YH – weekend away 8th to 10th September 2017

Lake District National Park, Holmrook CA19 1TH

A weekend in wonderful Eskdale YH for us but there are only 16 places available so hurry and book if you want a place. It’s a lovely old manor house. This tranquil hostel is set in 15 acres of private grounds nestling in the peaceful western fells, amongst a landscape of woods, rivers, rugged hills and sheep. YHA Eskdale is on the doorstep of the highest and most challenging Lakeland peaks such as Scafell but is also ideal for delightful riverside and woodland walks. It’s a short walk to pubs/restaurants.

2 nights on a B&B basis only.  As usual its budget accommodation with bedding + linen provided. You’ll need to bring towels with you. In with the cost will be tea/coffee etc as usual. Please note its dorm style bedrooms but I did request some empty beds so we will not be too packed in.

Please don’t request a particular type of room as this makes my job that little bit difficult. Rooms and beds are always booked by the girl/boy split in the first instance. If I am able to accommodate couples then I do but please don’t book if you’re not prepared to be split which is a certainly on this weekend.

Sharon will lead a short walk for those who can arrive Friday afternoon (walk time TBC) and Jane M will lead a short walk on Sunday for us before heading home. The extremely accommodating Mr Wallace will lead the walk up Scafell, England’s highest peak (weather permitting).

COST – £67.00 pp
