"Not only did we get our normal warm welcome from the staff but we were also rewarded with a weekend of cold, calm, clear weather with fantastic views of the Lakes and Mountains - which was most unusual! It is great to come back to a warm, friendly hostel to relax and enjoy good food and company."

Ellie Sherwin, Secretary of Search And Rescue Dogs Association, Annual Assessment Course, January 2012.

Youth group visits

Here are some of the groups who have visited Derwentwater Independent Hostel recently:

  • Scout groups
  • National Citizen Service groups
  • The CLIP project: a youth volunteering scheme run by The Conservation Volunteers
  • Youth rugby clubs
  • Young and Sweet Youth Group from Northumberland
  • North Copeland Youth Group from Cumbria
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award groups
  • Encompass: The Daniel Braden Reconciliation Trust
  • Albemarle Barracks Youth Club

We want to share Barrow House and the Lake District with as many young people as possible, and so we have a fund for subsidising youth group residentials. Click here for a poster and information sheet about the fund and residentials, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
