Elterwater out and about

The peaceful and picturesque village of Elterwater is a real getaway from the bustle of everyday life, where you will likely want to enjoy quiet walks straight from your holiday cottage, soak up the village charm from the local pub garden and take in the stunning scenery.

That said, you can easily explore more of the Lakes from your Elterwater self-catering holiday.

In little more than four miles from peaceful Elterwater you have all the conveniences of the bustling Lakeland town Ambleside, where you can easily stock your fridge and enjoy some holiday shopping. From here, a further four miles north and you’ll find yourself amidst stunning Wordsworth territory in the Vale of Grasmere, where of course you must try the legendary Grasmere Gingerbread. Beatrix Potter country of Hawkshead, Near Sawrey and Coniston are a short drive away, south along the A593.

Of course an Elterwater self-catering holiday is an ideal location for accessing the famous Langdale Pikes and superb walking territory in and around the Langdale Valley. Head along the notorious Wrynose Pass and Hard Knott Pass to award-winning family attraction, Muncaster Castle on the west coast. We’d recommend the Hawk and Owl centre here, as well as a walk through the stunning rhododendrons and azalea filled gardens.

Staying close to Elterwater, there’s so much to do and see. Rambling from the Britannia Inn, look out for swans on Elter Water, which is where the village got its Norse name meaning ‘swan lake’, and enjoy the walk from the tarn shore to Skelwith Bridge. Skelwith Force and Colwith Force are impressive and have great viewing platforms making them popular local features of a visit to Elterwater.

The Britannia is great for a traditional pub lunch and a rewarding after-walk pint. Why not try Eltermere Inn, only a five minute stroll away from Elterwater, for special occasion fine dining.

A self-catering holiday in Elterwater couldn’t be easier. Up the Langdale valley there’s plenty of great pubs for refuelling; The Wainwrights Inn and Old Dungeon Gyhll, which is popular with walkers and climbers, and The Sticklebarn Tavern, all provide excellent hearty food and a welcoming atmosphere for both muddy boots and paws!

The sleepy village and picturesque Elter Water tarn, the smallest of the Lake District’s sixteen lakes, that we enjoy today is in sharp contrast to its industrial history, where in the 19th Century it housed a Gunpower Works, exporting 20 tons a week at its peak.

Wandering further into the industrial past of Elterwater, the remains of Elterwater Quarry have left some interesting features in the landscape that are not to be missed; explore the emerald waters of Hodge Close, shout echoes in the spectacular Cathedral Cavern and in warmer temperatures laze over a picnic and paddle in the River Brathay at Slater’s Bridge, a truly charming 17th Century packhorse bridge built to allow quarrymen access from Tiberthwaite to Little Langdale.
