Learning programmes for schools
and youth groups.

"...we have always had the warmest of welcomes and been treated as special guests. Kathy and the staff are wonderful and cannot do enough for us - and after a day's walking, we are always treated to wonderful meals. You cannot ask for better. Barrow House has got to be one of the best Youth Hostels in the Lake District, if not in the North of England"

Andy Eddison, Scout Leader, 265 Sheffield Scouts' walking trip, Easter 2012.

Special interest group visits

We are continually stimulated by the interesting groups who choose to stay at Derwentwater Independent Hostel. Who will we meet next?! Borrowdale is an inspirational location for all sorts of different activities, whether they are specific to the area (such as climbing the Wainwright fells, researching William Wordsworth, or taking part in the Keswick Triathlon) or can simply benefit from the facilities and environment that Derwentwater Independent Hostel has to offer (such as singing, painting, debating, and mountaineering). Below are some of the interest groups that we have found particularly interesting! 

  • Triathlon, athletics, and mountaineering clubs
  • Search and Rescue Dog Association groups
  • The Dot Crotchets Community Choir
  • Expedition Medicine
  • The Conservation Volunteers
  • Charity Challenge Groups
  • Mensa
