Everyone has heard of the famous high fells of the Lake District; peaks like Scafell Pike, Coniston Old Man or Helvellyn. But some of the best views in the area can actually be found on their more diminutive neighbours, which act as great viewing platforms for the surrounding landscape.
As freedom from lockdown seems to get closer each day, we can all be forgiven for allowing ourselves to indulge in a little bit of post-lockdown fantasising. Whether it is a pub crawl, a meal out with friends or simply being able to spend time together with loved ones, we all have something we can’t wait to do.
We love exploring the fells around Little Langdale, but you don’t always have to go uphill to have a good walk. This loop takes you over to Little Langdale’s big brother Great Langdale via some lovely native woodland with delightful views to the high fells of Pavey Ark and Harrison Stickle.
This seven mile walk takes you from the door of the Three Shires Inn to Tarn Hows, one of the Lake District’s most popular beauty spots. It is mostly on good tracks and roads, but there are some boggy sections on Holme Fell. It can also be surprisingly easy to get lost on Holme Fell in the fog!
As we said in our last blog, the winter is a great time to look at the night sky in the Lake District. At the Three Shires Inn we are blessed with minimal light pollution and some beautiful scenery, which makes it a particularly great spot for looking at the stars. But it’s also the perfect place to take photos of them as well.
