About YHA Wasdale Hall

Formerly known as YHA Wastwater, this 200 year old country pile was originally used as a lakeside holiday home before becoming a National Trust property and still contains many of its original features including panelled windows, gabled roof and cornicing. Its beautiful black and white half-timbered façade, built in the 1820s, makes for an awe-inspiring view as you approach the Youth Hostel. It stand out from the surrounding landscape and trees.

Due to our remote location and the local infrastructure, Wi-Fi is not available here, we don’t have a TV signal and mobile phone reception is very patchy. We do have a payphone for guest use. This is a real get away from it all location, so turn off your electronics and relax!

Accommodation Information

YHA Wasdale Hall sleeps up to 46 people in a range of private rooms: 2 x 4 bed, 2 x 5 bed (including double beds), 1 x 6 bed rooms (all bunks) and male and female dormitory beds. We have toilets and showers throughout the building and a self catering kitchen for guests to use.

Our cosy lounge centres around a log fireplace, which is great for keeping warm in the winter months. Our comfortable Chesterfield sofas are in keeping with the heritage of the building itself and we have a wide range of books available in the library end of the room. There is also a dining room on the ground floor with tables and chairs.
