Langdale View is located in an enviable position amongst some of the Lakeland’s most incredible scenery. It is surrounded by pure natural beauty yet conveniently located just four and a half miles from Ambleside, five and a half miles from Coniston and two and a half miles from Grasmere.
There are plenty of wonderful walks from the front door. Grasmere is the nearest and it is also easy to walk to Elterwater, Ambleside, Rydal and Skelwith Bridge for a great day out without the car. The Cumbrian Way runs along the village edge and for those feeling energetic, you can climb the famous Langdale Pikes.
By car, avoid the traffic and take the scenic back road to Hawkshead, Coniston and the ferry to Windermere or for real wilderness, the Wrynose and Hardknott passes are nearby leading over the mountains to the little Eskdale railway and sea.
At the entry to the Langdale valley, on the fringes of Chapel Stile, Langdale View faces due south and affords fine views from every window. It is an ideal base for touring, walking or climbing and you can stroll just two hundred and fifty yards to the quaint little village with its local shop, cafe, country club, traditional Lakeland inn and church which holds the famous Langdale Tapestry.
There are at least three more excellent pubs within walking distance and just a stones throw from the cottage is the river, woods and a tarn to paddle or enjoy a picnic on a warm days.
For a day of swimming or pampering, get a leisure pass for the luxury spa at the Langdale Country Club (which also has an excellent restaurant at the other end of the village.
Langdale View is a perfect place to enjoy nature, recuperate and relax at any time of the year and is ideal for a romantic break or a friends/family holiday.
