We will try to offer various walks, but this is a mountain environment where weather calls the tune.

Set on the banks of Wastwater, this stunning, half-timbered, National Trust owned country house offers comfortable, historic accommodation slap-bang in the heart of the most iconic Lake District mountains. We have oodles of walking and mountaineering options directly from the doorstep.

Spectacular winter walking deep in the spiritual heart of the Lakes. Looking around from Wasdale Head is like a roll call of some of England's most iconic summits. Great Gable, Kirk Fell, Yewbarrow and Scafell Pike can all be seen on a clear day.  In this wonderful and beguiling winter setting, weather permitting, we will feast on this amazing smorgasbord of summits with some proper mountain walks to remember.

Arrival will be on the Friday night, when we will have our traditional OutdoorLads buffet. Then, after breakfast on Saturday morning, there will be one or more walking options (depending on leader availability), either from the hostel door or just a short drive away. Dinner on the Saturday evening is included in the event price and volunteers will be sought to help with the preparation, table setting etc.

Bedrooms and Beds

Please let us know (either by leaving a message on the event page or by sending a message to one of the two event leaders) if you are a couple booking, or friends who are happy to share a double bed, as two of the beds are doubles and we can increase event numbers by 2 if we share them :)


This event is not suitable for dogs.
