Getting around the Lake District
The hostel is very easily accessible by public transport. Kendal has its own train station which is around 15 min walk from the hostel and we also have Oxenholme The Lake District train station which is around 25 min walk to the hostel but only 5 min train ride from Kendal train station or there is also a bus available (41/41A). We are also accessible by car as Junction 36 of the M6 motorway is only 8 miles from the hostel so ideal for guests who are travelling to and from Scotland. The National Express bus also stops in Kendal on a daily basis and is only 10 min walk from the hostel
As the hostel is situated on the edge of the Lake District, we have excellent transport links to and from the popular destinations of Windermere, Ambleside, Grasmere and also Keswick. The 555 bus runs every 30 mins during the day (Summer timetable, Hourly in Winter) from Kendal to these places and one of the best ways to explore the Lake District is by the bus as the train terminates its journey at Windermere.
The Explorer Daily tickets are the best value at £11.50 pp for unlimited travel for the day from 05.45am to 23.45pm. Family, Group, 3 day (£26.00) and 7 day (£29.00) passes are also available for those who are staying longer.

Please be aware that we do have a resident cat at the hostel who is called 'Ginger George' (a picture of George can be found in our photos). We seem to find most guests appreciate the cat, especially those who are away from home and looking for creature comfort. The cat is very independent and very happy to stay away from guests who may be allergic or not keen on him. George is not allowed in the guest bedrooms or corridors. We are also dog friendly in the hostel and if you do wish to bring your four legged friend please just let us know so we can be sure to provide you a pet friendly room. Please do not book a shared room if you wish to bring your pet as we can not allowed pets in shared rooms, pets can only stay on rooms solely occupied by your group only.
