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.Since mid 2016 we have had a new hut partner, the Alpine Club. The hut is run on behalf of both clubs by a limited company, George Starkey Hut Limited. The Chair is Mike Parsons and Marian Parsons is the Hut warden.
Online Booking - The hut has a Members Room with eight beds and a further 20 beds that are bookable by clubs and groups.
Current nightly rate for members is just £6 and £11 for guests.
Please note that on certain occasions (usually midweek) the Members Room may not be available, for example when a school/youth group have booked the hut exclusively. Check current group booking availability before booking.
