Are you looking for the perfect hidden gem in the Lake District? Look no further than the Little Langdale for stunning views, undisturbed natural landscapes and only a handful of houses scattered along the valley.
1. A Walkers Paradise
Only a short walk from The Three Shires Inn, across the Slater Bridge, is the famous Cathedral Cave, and a little further is Hodge Close Quarry. Within the quarries are a network of tunnels and chambers, some require lighting, which are great for exploring!
2. Peace and tranquillity
Get away from the stress of a hectic lifestyle and enjoy a relaxing drink on the garden terrace whilst watching the flow of the stream. There's no sign of car horns, loud exhausts or sirens - just the sweet song of bird song and the burbling stream.
3. Biking trails
What better way to explore the best of the Lake District on your bike riding through the valleys. This 12-mile Bike Route through Tilberthwaite, Hodge Close and The Little Langdale is a great way to see the highlights of the lakes in only a few hours.
Have you ever seen a sky full of stars? Unlike the city streets, there isn’t a street light in sight so by nightfall the valley is lit up by the moon and stars.
5. Open water swimming
Blea Tarn is just a 7min drive or 40min walk away and is perfect for a morning swim in the summer sun. It has an average depth of 7m and water temperatures can be very low beneath the surface so it’s not for the faint-hearted - a wetsuit would be advisable!
