THE HOSTEL IS ON THE WAINWRIGHTS COAST TO COAST WALK AND THEREFORE THE PEOPLE STAYING ARE WALKERS, IF YOU ARE LOUD AFTER 10PM YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE, IMMEDIATELY. The hostel is owned and run by two young brothers who enjoy biking, hiking, climbing and all outdoor pursuits. We have our own chickens for eggs in the morning and are constantly improving the building and the business on a daily basis. We are here to help!!
We are positioned in Shap, on Wainwright\'s and the Westmorland Way, and are easily accessible for the Eastern Fells of the Lake District, The Howgills and The Pennines. New Ing Lodge was a working farm up until the late 1980\'s but as far as records can be found, it has also been a Coach House/ Guest House since 1820.
It also makes us just over an hour and a half from cities such as Liverpool, Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester, and less than an hour from Newcastle and Preston.
It is easily accessible (about 2 miles from Junction 39 on the M6).
If approaching fron the North we are about the fifth building on the left hand side once you come up over the small bridge past the 30mph signs.
If approaching from the South, go past the Bulls Head Pub on the left and the Co-Op then turn right up the side of the old garage and then imediatelty first left and up to our front door.
Buses from Penrith station are regular and take about 30 minutes. Penrith is on the main west coast London Glasgow line.
