It’s that time of year when we all like to indulge ourselves a little and spend a bit of well-earned time relaxing in a comfy chair. However, all that lovely Christmas food and drink will only taste even better after a bracing winter walk. This low-level circuit around Great Langdale is never too taxing, but is just long enough to give you an appetite.

Coniston Water, just three miles or so south of the Three Shires Inn, is one of the most well-known spots in the Lake District.

This route takes you from the Three Shires Inn to Coniston via Tilberthwaite, passing through a number of interesting historical mining sites on the way. The paths and tracks are generally very good, although there is a steep and slippery scree section on the climb out of Coniston and some very wet ground on Coniston Moor.

At the Three Shires Inn we love a good pint just as much as you do. We’ve been spending a bit of time dropping in on the breweries who keep us supplied with delicious beer to find out a little bit more about what goes into making a truly tasty brew.

Things have been a bit damp in the Lake District recently; the kind of weather when sitting in the pub with your feet up and thinking about walking is arguably a lot more fun than actually heading out and braving the weather itself.

However, at the Three Shires Inn we are blessed with easy access to the high fells and a huge number of lower level walks where you can avoid the worst of the weather and you might even see the occasional nice view on a claggy day.

This easy loop mainly follows roads and good tracks through the countryside between Little Langdale and Hawkshead, although there is the occasional sloppy path en route.

We all love exploring the fells around Little Langdale and, most of the time, the peak of the excitement during our forays into the mountains will come via the exhilaration of physical exercise or the stunning outlook from a lofty summit. However, accidents can happen to any of us and when they do, the Lake District’s mountain rescue teams are on hand to help.

Things are definitely heating up in the Lake District and - even for those of us who usually like our water gently bubbling at about 30 degrees in a Jacuzzi - some of the lakes and tarns are beginning to look quite inviting, especially after a long day out in the fells.

Bouldering

When we think about rock climbing we tend to think about being up high. The classic image of a climber is someone clinging onto a rock face, tied to a rope and trying to stay calm with a big drop beneath their feet. However, rock climbing comes in many forms and one of the increasingly popular ones is bouldering.

Latterbarrow, overlooking Hawkshead and Windermere, is one of Lakeland’s great viewing platforms. Standing at just 245m it nevertheless offers a wonderful panorama of Langdale, Helvellyn and much more in return for a relatively easy climb.
