Hostel Buttermere YHA Reviews

Wonderful, Peaceful setting and friendly staff

Spent a few days in the Lake District with a family of 4 as part of a 10 month trip to the UK. One of the best hostels yet! Clean, comfortable, amazing walks and hiking opportunities in a gorgeous setting! Highly recommended.



YHA Buttermere is a busy and friendly Lakeland slate house in an unrivalled location above the village – ideal for families and walkers. Haystacks is just one of the many fantastic peaks easily accessible from this hostel’s doorstep.

An escape from summer crowds for anyone wanting to explore this quieter corner of Lakeland. YHA Buttermere is in an unrivalled location half a mile above Buttermere village and walks for all levels start here – including the famous Haystacks. Enjoy a fantastic meal in our bar/restaurant with views of Red Pike and High Stile. Rooms have 2-6 beds and facilities include a lounge and kitchen.
