A holiday cottage in Skelwith Bridge takes you away from the hustle and bustle of tourist traps, but places you in an ideal location for exploring the highlights. This is also a prime Lake District holiday destination for walking in the Lake District. Skelwith Bridge is a small hamlet in the heart of the Langdale Valley, within easy reach of shops, Windermere Lake Cruises and restaurants in Ambleside, but surrounded by sublime countryside scenes. Some of the most famous Lake District walks begin on your doorstep; including challenging routes in the Langdale Pikes, Loughrigg and the tarn, or peaceful strolls on the shores of Elterwater.
Your location just off the A593 makes exploring the wider reaches of the National Park a breeze. For example; follow the road back to Ambleside and the shores of Lake Windermere, then north to Rydal Water and Grasmere, or follow the A593 south to picturesque Coniston.
Whatever the season, and whatever style of holiday you prefer, the Langdale Valley provides blissful seclusion and world class walking, never too far from the Lake District's most vibrant communities.
