If you think of rock climbing, you may well imagine svelte, muscled athletes hauling themselves up seemingly impossible precipices.

However, although this type of death defying feat definitely has its place in the world of climbing, the vast majority of climbers are usually engaged in much gentler fare; cruising up easy angled rock for the pure pleasure of the movement and being outside in the mountains.

Blea Tarn, with its majestic backdrop of the Langdale Pikes, is one of the most visited tarns in the Lake District.

Aside from its obvious natural beauty, plus the fact it’s a great spot for a refreshing swim in the summer, Blea Tarn is also one of the most easily accessible tarns, with parking right by the shore.


Exceptional food, great staff, highly recommend

Having searched for pubs that offered something other than the traditional British pub grub menu we found the Three Shires. The menu was varied and fresh, we all chose fish, the fish cake was so delicious full of smoky fish, the cheese soufflé light and fluffy and the chowder was exceptional. Great beer, great wine list, friendly staff - highly recommend
