Explore the Lake District


About Langdale

Holiday cottages in Langdale are perfect for those seeking an active exploration of the Lake District’s most rugged and untamed corners. The Great Langdale valley runs to the west of Ambleside and comprises some of the region’s most picturesque peaks – including the Langdale Pikes and access to Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain. There are numerous high and low lying walking routes, a host of breath-taking vistas and some of the region’s most warm and welcoming pubs dotted throughout the valley, making a holiday cottage in the region a must for those wanting to head off the beaten path to explore the wilder side of the Lakes on holiday.

Unlike some of the Lake District’s more populated areas, the landscape of Langdale is undoubtedly its biggest draw and the reason many choose a holiday cottage there. Those seeking high-altitude thrills will find plenty of climbing and scrambling opportunities, and hikers of all abilities will find plenty of places to explore amongst Langdale’s valleys. If you favour a more relaxing Lake District holiday you will also find that Langdale is more than happy to oblige. Blea Tarn and Elter Water amongst the gentler terrain of Little Langdale offer wonderfully tranquil experiences away from the more popular tourist areas.
