The George Starkey Hut

If you are a member please login to see full details.

The George Starkey Hut at the foot of Helvellyn in Patterdale in the Lake District offers a good venue & good value for AAC members.  Well-known to regulars on the Patterdale meet, the Hut is available at times throughout the year to you and your guests – at a special AAC rate of only £11 each.  There is a minimum booking of 2 people and 4 bed nights.

The hut is run by the Association of British Members of the Swiss Alpine Club and the Alpine Club and stands beside the A592 Glenridding road.  Easy to access from the M6 via Penrith or via Windermere over the Kirkstone Pass, it is ideal as a base for the eastern Lake District fells. Be on the hills in minutes – Helvellyn, Fairfield, the Dodds and HighStreet surround the hut; rock climbing locally at Castle Rock.

Sleeping up to 20 in 2 bedrooms, the hut often has spare capacity over summer weekends & mid-week throughout the year. There is a well-equipped kitchen and hot showers, good drying room, and a superb fire in winter.  Please follow all the hut rules about cleaning and switching off before you leave the hut, or make arrangements with any other group that is leaving later.
