George Starkey Hut

The hut is in Patterdale near Ullswater, at the heart of the Lake Districtís Eastern Fells. It is ideally placed for the High Street range to the East, whilst from the front there is a splendid view of Helvellyn and its neighbouring fells: to reach them, all you have to do is put on your boots and walk from the hut.
There are rock climbing and mountain biking opportunities from the front door, canoeing and sailing on Ullswater and pony trekking locally.

The hut has up to 20 places that are bookable by clubs and groups and a members room with eight places.

Please check hut availability by reviewing calendar for 2016 or 2017 before booking.
