The summer holidays are almost upon us, and there’s no better time to round up the kids and head off for a fantastic day of fun in the great outdoors.
And whether you're nearby or visiting the Lake District on holiday, Little Langdale and the Three Shires Inn really do make a great place for a memorable day out for all the family.
In fact there’s so much to see and do in the area, you’ll probably find yourself wanting to come back again and again.
Action or Leisure?
Whatever your idea of the perfect family day out, we’ve got it here on our doorstep. If you’re in search of action and adventure, then how about cycling and mountain biking around miles of traffic-free country lanes, bridleways, and forest tracks? Or taking part in an organised scramble along the pools and waterfalls of Tilberthwaite Ghyll? Why not push the boat out and learn to paddle a canoe or sail a boat?
And if your ideal day is a little more laid back and leisurely, then perhaps a gentle low level stroll to see the ancient and delightful Slater Bridge, the fascinating Greenburn Mines, or the dramatic Colwith Force waterfalls would fit the bill? Gentle exercise, magnificent scenery, and loads of interest to keep the kids occupied along the way. Or how about a trip around Coniston Water on the beautiful old steam-powered yacht Gondola?
The Perfect Setting
However you plan your day you’ll want to include good food and refreshments, and here at the Three Shires Inn we’ve created the perfect setting for a relaxing lunchtime break from your activities, or a rewarding drink and an evening meal at the end of a wonderful day out together.
From light bites to wholesome local main dishes, and of course an excellent children’s menu too, you can enjoy delicious food and drinks in our garden with sensational views of the Lakeland scenery all around; and of course there’s plenty of space indoors too if the weather has decided to be a little unkind. And remember that muddy boots, grubby kids, and four legged friends are all very welcome here at the Three Shires, so there’s no need to worry about how messy you got playing in the stream!
Make the most of this summer and get the family out into the great outdoors in and around the Little Langdale valley. There’s fun and adventure at every turn, and simply loads to see and do for all ages and abilities. It’s going to be a memorable day however you choose to enjoy it, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Three Shires Inn.
