Bothies and bunkhouses in the Lake District

Whether you’re looking for adrenaline-fuelled adventures, jaw-dropping views or peaceful walking trails, the Lake District offers it all.

If you’re searching for group accommodation in the Lake District, our bothies and bunkhouses are the perfect base to explore Cumbria.

Bothies offer stripped back accommodation so are a great option for adventurous groups on a walking break. For those that want a back-to-nature experience without having to give up all the comforts of home, our bunkhouses provide self-catering accommodation for large groups, with cooking facilities and dormitories with bunkbeds.
