Head over to the Langdale Valley this Bank Holiday weekend where there’s plenty to see and do for the whole family.
Whether it’s just for the day or having a Bank Holiday short break, the Langdale valley is looking lovely with bluebells in bloom in the many woodland areas and miles of some of the Lake District’s best walks and most stunning scenery.
Low level and when looking to take it easy then Elterwater and Blea Tarn are well worth walking around with commanding views of the Langdale Pikes. A lovely walk to do with the kids is High Close and Red Bank. A 2.75 mile walk with plenty of lovely views to keep the kids entertained and manageable ascent. Then for the big boys and girls then the Great and Little Langdale Circle is an excellent way to spend a day. The 9.5 mile walk isn’t too taxing with only 350 metres of ascent but the views and varied terrain is a pleasure and photographers dream.
Langdale’s location means hopping over to the Western Lake District is as easy as 1 in 3, well that’s the gradients you’ll have to tackle going over Wrynose and Hardknott! Not for the fainthearted whether the mode of transport is push bike or car. The perfect solution for this trip to fully take in all the scenery and just enjoy the journey is by Twizy. The Langdale Hotel & Spa have Twizy’s that can be hired out at a bargain £10 per hour with Eskdale in the Western Lakes having charging points to ensure drivers get back to Langdale. These funky electric cars are small but perfectly formed and the ideal size for the narrow roads and of course, very environmentally friendly.
The Langdale 4 Star Lake District Hotel is #theplacetobe this August Bank Holiday. With Stove and Wainwright’s Inn to dine and drink, 35 acres of private grounds and a luxury spa and leisure facility.
