"What I liked most about working at the hostel was working as part of a fantastic team. Everyone was really friendly. I'm sure the two months wouldn't have passed as quickly as they did if I hadn't been surrounded by all these lovely people who really made me feel welcome and comfortable. I will really miss my friends at Derwentwater Youth Hostel. Thanks to all of you!"

Beate Fichl, student volunteer from Germany, February- March 2012.

Family visits

We love meeting lots of different families at Derwentwater Independent Hostel. Young children can roam safely around the house and grounds, and we have lots of different facilities and activities to keep everyone amused, including jigsaws, magazines, local reference books, table tennis, table football, a television, an indoor red squirrel trail, an orienteering course in the grounds, an indoor counting quiz, and of course the wonderful views and wild-life! 

Kathy Morris and Dave Piercy have been managing our hostel since 1992 and their two children have grown up in the house. They therefore have plenty of useful local knowledge and a very accommodating attitude towards family groups.
