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 note that on certain occasions the members room is not available, this for example will cover when school/youth groups have booked. These times are shown on the calendar.
