"Not sure how in the world this hostel managed to find the nicest people in the entire Lake District and hire them as staff. This place is nothing short of amazing. I've stayed in many hostels and hotels but I've never seen such nice and friendly staff. We stayed here for three nights and I was impressed by the staff's kindness and willingness to go out of their way to help us. The breakfast is delicious and the views from the dorms were unbelievable. The beds are comfy and cozy and the location is excellent as well. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in!"

Revision residentials

Many schools find it highly beneficial to take small groups on revision residentials, particularly for students on the borderline of a D/C grade at GCSE.

We hope that our spacious grounds, delicious meals, quiet location, friendly staff, and inspiring views will motivate students to fulfil their potential. Revision residentials allow teachers and students to concentrate effectively, working together for long-lasting benefits.

An itinerary which includes free time in the grounds, a local walk, or some adventure activities (such as kayaking on the lake) makes revision fun and rewarding. In addition, a residential experience, no matter how short, fosters co-operation and respect between students and leaders, with personal confidence and stronger working relationships developing beyond the residential.

We expect groups to provide their own tuition for revision residentials, but please let us know if you require help with a particular topic.
