Easter in the Lake District

Rydal Water

We have booked Rydal Hall Youth Centre for 5 nights, near Ambleside in the Lake District. Sheltered by the high fells of Fairfield and its neighbours, Rydal enjoys outstanding views toward Windermere, and provides an excellent base for walking.

Facilities include fully equipped kitchen, Bathroom/shower facilities, large common room with wood burning stove. Pillows are provided, but you'll need to bring a sleeping bag.

To find it, follow A591 for two miles north from Ambleside. In Rydal, turn right into the lane towards Rydal Mount, pass the church and take the second entrance on the right (just beyond the main gate of the hall). Pass behind the hall and over a small bridge. The youth centre is the large white building on the left (postcode LA22 9LX, see map).

£40 deposit to book a bed please. Total cost will be about £32 per night including meals, plus £40 towards petrol for those sharing lifts from Essex.
