About YHA Helvellyn

YHA Helvellyn is a traditional hostel in a unique location - 963ft up the third highest mountain in the country, in the most beautiful national park in the UK! It is an ideal base for starting your adventure and the perfect place for peace, quiet and easy access to scenic landscapes for walking holidays, activity breaks and school trips.

The hostel is good for mountaineers and walkers with the Helvellyn range literally on the doorstep. Mountain bikers will also be entertained with the longest downhill ride in the country from summit of the mountain! In the winter months there is a ski slope with a drag lift 40 minutes walk (or ski) away from the hostel and we are the closest accommodation to some of England’s greatest snow and ice climbing. There is also plenty to do for those that wish to relax or have children with them, with plenty of low level and less strenuous walking starting right from the front door!

The lake shore village of Glenridding is just a 20 minute walk away with several cafes shops and pubs, plus the opportunity to take a trip on the Ullswater ether by Kayak, sailboat or the steamer.
