Derwentwater youth hostel is saved
The sale has gone ahead but the new owner plans to carry on as heretofore and the Youth Hostel Association is happy for him to keep the traditional name
. . . The sale is being completed this Friday, 4 November. It will be a pretty-low key handing over but the hostel hopes to have some sort of open day and ceremony in the future to mark the rebirth of Derwentwater Youth Hostel. Although YHA now has nothing to do with the hostel, they have agreed that the name Derwentwater Youth Hostel can be used.
