    We can take dogs in our Alternative Accommodation - Pods, Cabin, Bell Tents, Tipis and Camping. There is a charge of £5 per dog, and whilst we welcome dogs in the above areas they are not permitted in any of the buildings.

    There is a bus between Hawkshead village, via Ambleside, to Windermere. It's the Stagecoach 505. From Hawkshead village it is a mile walk to the hostel, along the road (which has no footpath).
