We're back!! Generations of walkers have made a grateful beeline for Ennerdale's majestically sited Black Sail "hut", a former shepherds' bothy that serves as one of the UK's most renowned youth hostels. High up in the western fells – a good couple of hours' walk (or cycle) from anywhere, and six miles from the nearest car park on Ennerdale Water – this is more hikers' refuge than backpackers' hostel. This is basic – but very welcome – accommodation in the middle of some of the most dramatic walking country in the UK, and that's just they way we like it!

Black Sail offers fantastic access to a number of nearby peaks, including Great Gable Pillar, Red Pike and Steeple. After a long day exploring the Lakes, we can go back and put our feet up in our lounge, complete with wood-burning stove. Then, we can do it all again the next day, because we have three days!!!
