Butharlyp Howe YHA is a beautiful 4 star VisitBritain rated hostel nestled in it's own grounds, 2 minutes walk from the centre of Grasmere village. The village itself is renowned for being William Wordsworth's home for a number of years and his legacy lives on, in and around the old buildings at Town End where Dove Cottage can be found.
The area around Grasmere is an Outdoor enthusiasts playground, with miles of ridges and fell tops to roam on. Walking routes to Helvellyn, the Langdale Pikes, Fairfield and many others start and finish in Grasmere and we are also, a mid-point on the Lake District leg of the Coast to Coast. Not only walks for the stronger but the area has an abundance of scenic walks for all levels of ability. Group Outdoor Activity holidays can be booked in advance
