Past news

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.
From 1 July we have a new hut partner, the Alpine Club. We have taken this opportunity to change the name of the Limited Company that runs the hut on behalf of the two clubs. The new name is George Starkey Hut Limited.

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 2018 or 2019 before booking.

Please note that on special 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.
