The August Bank Holiday weekend away will be held at Buttermere YHA. Overlooking the lake and surrounded by some of the highest mountains in England, YHA Buttermere is a fabulous base for fantastic walks direct from the door, including Haystacks, made famous by Alfred Wainwright.

There is a spacious lounge with comfortable furniture and spectacular views, a large dining room with tables, chairs and a bar, and a self-catering kitchen.

Notes on Weekend Bookings:
Please help the organiser by booking, and paying, for weekends as early as possible.

If a late booking is absolutely necessary, then it may be possible to do this directly with the Youth Hostel. This requires individual membership of the YHA (currently about £14). Such bookings must be made on an individual basis. No attempt should be made to refer, or "tag on", to the group booking, since this creates confusion for both the hostel warden and the organiser.
