"On behalf of the large group from Serpentine Runners, I would just like to thank you for making our recent stay so enjoyable. The friendly welcome, the amazing home-cooked food, the relaxed atmosphere - it was just the perfect base. It is absolutely brilliant that you have kept this remarkable old house open for simple accommodation. We'll be back!"

Serpentine Runners, Jan 2019

Food and drink

The really important things in life!

Derwentwater Independent Hostel has a reputation for excellent home baking and cooking. We also have a residential licence, with an interesting variety of wines, spirits and local ales. Please do not consume your own alcohol on-site.

Vegetarian options are always available and special dietary requirements, including Halal, gluten-free, and dairy-free, can be catered for with advance notice. 

Meal times are 7.30 to 8.30am for breakfast and 7.00pm for the evening meal. However, we can often be flexible for groups: just let us know your requirements in advance. We can email you with the menu and our specials for the dates of your stay.

Please book breakfasts and packed lunches the night before. Please make your evening meal choices at least an hour before your sitting - by 6.00pm

We aim to source our food, drink, and recipes locally, with local beers (Keswick Brewery) a speciality!
