Slaters Cottage, Langdale
Arrival day: Saturday | Sleeps: 5
This 300 year old cottage is one of just a few in the sleepy hamlet of Little Langdale, immersed in the walkers' paradise that is the Langdale Valley. You'll find breathtaking scenery at every turn, and exhilarating walks from your doorstep - Lingmoor Fell, Pike O'Blisco and Bow Fell to your north, and Wetherlam, Swirl How and the Coniston Fells to your south. At the end of the day, refuel at Little Langdale's excellent Three Shires Inn. We told you this was a walkers' paradise! Inside the cottage the magic of Lakeland continues; stable doors and old oak beams, woodburning stove, original wooden floors and wrought iron beds in every bedroom. Families, friends or walking groups will find this an enchanting home from home.

A holiday cottage in Little Langdale makes a magical retreat for walking in the Lake District, or simply soaking up the breathtaking scenery. Under the Lingmoor Fells, Little Langdale is approached via Blea Tarn on a winding road.
You'll come across a select few excellent country pubs in the Langdale Valley, serving real Lakeland ale and hearty meals to refuel you after a day in the fresh air.
When you wish to head out and explore the rest of the Lakes, pass pretty little Elterwater on your way to Skelwith Bridge and the A593. From here, head south to Coniston or north to Ambleside - a sophisticated village on the northern shores of Lake Windermere.
