Just some of the activities to do when staying at Langdale hotel in the Lake District

There is plenty for couples to do whilst visiting the Langdale Valley:

1. Take a stroll around Blea Tarn and gaze at the Langdale Dale Pikes. It may just inspire you to actually walk them the next day! Either level of walking, there are plenty of routes in the Langdale area. Remember too, Fresh Air is Free!
2. Hire an electric car for a hour or 2 and drive over the Wrynose and Hardnott Passes, the steepest roads in England. Great views can be had no matter where you look and is such a peaceful way in which to travel.
3. Have a trip over to Grizedale Forest and either cycle around the well signposted routes or walk them and look out for the sculptures hiding in and around the forest.
4. Museums galore if that’s your thing nearby including Hill Top, Beatrix Potter’s home and The Ruskin Museum.
5. Well and truly relax and unwind with a spectacular spa day or half day.
