Our accommodation for the weekend is the stunning YHA Keswick, overlooking the River Greta and Fitz Park, with far reaching views to Latrigg and Skiddaw. YHA Keswick is a stunning, recently refurbished place for us to spend our adventure weekend in the North Lakes Fells.

Our accommodation for the trip will be in 4-bed and 6-bed dorms, exclusive to our group. If you’re booking with a friend let us know and we’ll make sure you get a room together. 

NOTE: There is no car parking at this hostel, but there is paid for on-street parking.


Our meals for the weekend will be prepared on-site at YHA, for breakfast and dinner. Saturday lunch is not included, as we will be out all day, so please bring something to eat for Saturday lunch, such as a packed lunch.
