The Langdale Valley

Great Langdale or the Langdale valley as we tend to call it is a Discover The Lakes favourite.
It is prime walking and climbing territory with Loft Crag, Harrison Stickle and Pavey Ark all above 2,000 feet but has much to offer for the more sedentary of us.
Commencing at Skelwith Bridge just a short drive from Ambleside where you will find the lovely Chesters cafe with its outside terrace the road winds its way to Elterwater village where there is a large National Trust car park and a great pub the Brittannia Inn as well as a couple of shops.
Continuing on past Elterwater you will find the village of Chapel Stile and a short drive will take you up to the Sticklebarn.
At the head of the valley is the Old Dungeon Ghyll.
You will now be surrounded by dramatic scenery with the majestic Langdale Pikes and a sense of the age of this valley which in the neolithic period was noted for producing stone axes and in more recent times it was an important centre for the lakeland slate industry.
The Langdale valley is definitely a good choice for your holiday and we have accommodation ranging fron B&B's through cottages to luxury lodges at Greenhowe Caravan And Lodge Park Great Langdale.
