What we have to offer

Situated in the heart of Arnside village, Arnside Hostel is surrounded by stunning scenery and exceptional views of the Lake District hills and Morecambe bay.

For walking holidays there are lots of routes throughout Silverdale and Arnside (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) for varying abilities and for anyone doing the Coast to Coast or Lands end to John O’Groats route, YHA Arnside makes for a well-deserved stop-off point.

The hostel is just a two minute walk from the village prom with its cafes, shops, boutiques, galleries, pubs, and also a wonderful bar and grill restaurant. There is a children’s playpark at the end of the road as well as large playing field. Arnside is ideally located on the edge of the Lake District national park in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, five minutes from RSPB Leighton Moss, 15 minutes from the M6, 25 minutes from Windermere. We have great views over the Lakeland hills, and Morecambe bay, the village is known for its all year round spectacular sunsets, walks along the prom (on the River Kent Estuary which is next to the hostel), rambling on Arnside Knott, with its views of the dales and lakes and the Tidal Bore.
