Accommodation Info

Surrounded by mountains and accessible only on foot or by mountain bike, Skiddaw House is perfect for fell walkers, mountain bikers, adventurous families, and lovers of wild and remote places. Situated at 1550ft/470m on the flanks of Skiddaw and 3.5 miles from the nearest road, this traditional hostel on the Cumbria Way offers simple yet comfortable accommodation. Stay here for a real escape from it all; with no mains electricity, phone signal, TV or internet to distract from the surrounding wilderness. Solar panels provide light and hot water, while wood-burning stoves provide the only heating in this alpine-hut style bunkhouse.Skiddaw House is self-catering, but our small shop stocks everything you need for breakfast, packed lunches and evening meals. Also on sale is a selection of local ales, wine and whiskey, so there’s no-need to carry a heavy bag up the hill.
