"Might be an idea to bring micro spikes/ crampons if it looks in any way icy or snowy conditions, which it can be in Dec. Also headtorch and usual winter gear."

Hi John Just a few information bites about Black Sail Youth Hostel Weekend September 22/23 2017.

Black Sail - Brilliant Location at the Head of Ennerdale. People staying will need to walk or mountain bike in.

16 beds are available. Price for weekend £76.50. This includes Breakfast on Saturday/ Sunday. And Evening Meal on Friday/Saturday. It's pricey compared to other locations - but there are very few locations like this! In order to reserve a place you need to pay a deposit of £50.00. Sorry about the size of this - but if we don't pay up soon - we loose the chance of staying there.  Any questions Andy 07504926007.
