Langdale House enjoys a fabulously scenic location in the tranquil, pretty hamlet of Little Langdale in the stunning Little Langdale Valley. The hamlet is surrounded by valleys, hills and lakes as well as spas, restaurants, charming pubs and some excellent attractions. You will find many places to eat and drink including the local Three Shires Inn. The traditional slate inn was built in 1872, taking its name from its location. The boundaries of the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire met at the Wrynose Pass. Just down the road is the wonderful Langdale Estate Hotel & Spa, a thirty five acre estate with a gym, pool, steam room, sauna and tennis courts and just a little further, in Windermere, is the Low Wood Bay Resort and Spa. It boasts two excellent restaurants, Atrium and Blue Smoke on The Bay as well as a fabulous range of spa days. The Langdale Valley is stunning and very peaceful. When driving around you will pass Blea Tarn, the Wrynose Pass, the Hardknott Pass and the River Brathay which runs down the middle of the valley from Little Langdale Tarn, via Colwith Force to Elterwater. The tarn is of glacial origin and is surrounded by high hills. You can park at Low Tilberthwaite and walk to the tarn. If you want to enjoy the Lake District scenery and not drive, you can take a Mountain Goat sightseeing tour.

You will be itching to get on one of the lakes. The Low Wood Water Sport Centre on Windermere offers flyboarding, sailing, boat hire, canoeing, kayaking, water skiing, wake boarding and paddle boarding. Windermere Lake Cruises leave from Bowness Pier, Ambleside Pier and Lakeside Pier taking visitors out onto the water for 45-90 minutes. There is also self-drive motorboat hire and rowboat hire.

For those that love shopping, the famous flagship store of Lakeland is located in Windermere with endless gift and gadgets as well as an excellent first floor cafe with splendid views over the Lakeland Fells. Windermere is a fantastic destination all year round. Bustling with shops and wonderful dining experiences, it is just wonderful. The towns of Windermere and Bowness have been a magnet for visitors since Victorian times. Hayes Garden World offers another wonderful shopping experience with gifts. It is especially lovely over Christmas.  

Children love the water adventures, hiking and the magical World of Beatrix Potter at Bowness-on-Windermere. Its interactive exhibits tell the story of Beatrix Potter’s writing and her importance to Lakeland conservation. Beatrix Potter’s 17th century home, Hill Top House, near Sawrey, Ambleside is managed by the National Trust.

Coniston Water is the third largest lake in the Lake District by volume after Windermere and Ullswater and the fifth largest by area, being five miles long by half a mile wide. Coniston Village is known for The Old Man of Coniston, rising dramatically behind the houses in the village centre. Coniston is great for walkers and climbers. There are two public launch services on Coniston Water, the Coniston Launch and the National Trust’s Steam Yacht Gondola. Arthur Ransome based his children’s book Swallow and Amazons on locations around the lake. The Monk Coniston estate, owned by Beatrix Potter, and given to the National Trust on her death, stretches from Coniston to Skelwith Bridge. It boasts the famous beauty spot Tarn Hows.

About Lake District

The scenic splendour of the Lake District makes it a must-visit for fans of the great outdoors. Ullswater Valley is stunning, sheltering a beautiful lake hidden among towering fells, while the surrounding area is relatively undeveloped compared with other parts of the Lake District. Take the Ullswater Steamer Ferry for a unique perspective of the valley, enjoying its remote and peaceful feel.

Langdale House is fantastic for families. It has so much space and the separate living spaces work brilliantly when children want to watch a movie at the end of a busy day. The garden is delightful and the hot tub a very special treat.

The Lake District is absolutely wonderful for family holidays. The walking, water adventures, the bustling towns and the fabulous attractions all make for an excellent holiday.

The World of Beatrix Potter is always popular as is the National Trust’s home of Beatrix Potter. Hill Top House is located near Sawrey and offers a wonderful afternoon out.

Children love getting on the water at the lakes. Windermere offers many cruises. Brockhole at Windermere boasts boat hire, archery, a wonderful adventure playground and laser clay shooting. Another wonder is Grizedale Forest in Hawkshead. It is a beautiful woodland where children love spotting the red squirrels and enjoying a thrilling session on the Go Apre high wire course. There is also an excellent visitor centre and cafe.

If you have a bad weather day, you can visit the lovely Newby Bridge Aquarium at Newby, Ulverston. There is a wonderful collection of fish and an underwater tunnel. Also in Ulverston is the Lakeland Motor Museum with its endless exhibits. You can buy a joint ticket with Windermere Cruises.

The South Lakes Safari Zoo is always a good bet. Children can hand feed giraffes and kangaroos, see the tigers, leopards, lions and jaguars and enter the condor and vulture enclosure. The animals roam free in giant enclosures. There is also an adventure playground and lots of animal talks during the day.

If you cross the Hardknott and Wrynose Pass over the mountains to the Western Lake District, you can visit Muncaster Castle and Hawk and Owl Centre. There are beautiful gardens, an adventure playground, a maze and fantastic bird of prey displays including the World of Owls and Sky Hunters. After a spectacular journey on the dramatic Wrynose and Hardknott passes route to Eskdale, the whole family will enjoy a forty-minute ride on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Steam Railway.
