    I was part of a group of 4 booked into the hostel for a Friday and Saturday night. We chose it based on its unique location and the remoteness - it's rare to get a chance to be properly cut off with no phone signal...More

    About
    Hotel description
    Location, location, location. YHA Black Sail has it. Remote and accessible only on foot, it’s a rural retreat that lovers of the great outdoors can normally only dream about. Located in a traffic-free valley that is being returned to a ‘wild’ state, it’s as tranquil as a stay in the Lakes gets.

    Hi. There are 2 toilets but only one has a mirror (helpful for those shaving!). There is one shower which has plenty of hot water. My advice is to shower first then enjoy the views as there can be a queue!

    No drops at all, it's a woodland path from the car park or YHA Ennerdale. Hope that helps Andy
