The hamlet of Little Langdale has a stunning location under the Lingmoor Fells and offers an air of escape that's hard to beat.
With a blissfully remote feel, this area is a haven for walkers and provides access to many of the Lake District's most famous routes. There are several Lakeland pubs within walking distance in the Great Langdale Valley as well as the Langdale Estate Hotel, Spa and restaurant, and the excellent Three Shires Inn is just a two minutes walk up the valley from Lowfield House.
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, north to Grassmere or east to well-served Ambleside and the A591 - the main route through the Lakes.
At the head of Little Lansdale you have Wrynose Pass which takes you westwards to Eskdale and Ravensglass via Hardknott pass (the steepest road in England and not for the feint hearted driver)
