Lake District still open for business

Written by Ann Woolley on

Following the floods last month and the intense media coverage we have had many enquiries about how our cottages and the surrounding area have been affected.

Although we understand the anxiety, we have been very fortunate around the Langdale valley and would like to reassure everyone that all our lovely cottages are fine and we are still keen to welcome visitors. Indeed the majority of places and businesses in the Lake District are still open and accessible. As you can see from the photos the becks at some of our cottages are currently looking very scenic; the silver lining to all the clouds.

The lake District National Park are undertaking a major exercise surveying paths and bridges and you can log onto their website for an up to date map which should help when planning walking or cycling trips. There are also a variety of organised walks on offer. You can read about them Lakeland Walks and Talks website.

Some other events coming up which may be of interest:

23 January 2016

Use traditional greenwood techniques and carve a spoon at the National Trust’s beautiful Footprint building near Windermere. Other courses are run on different dates.

29 January 2016

The Three Shires Inn at Little Langdale will be reopening after some non-flood related alterations.  Our guests have money off vouchers for the freshly homemade and locally sourced menu. There is also a selection of Cumbria ales available. 

14 February 2016

We have a number of romantic cottages for two. How about planning a spa day at Langdale or valentine’s afternoon treat The Eltermere Restaurant?

Ideas for the Half Term Holidays:


If it is really wet and you do not want to venture out, you can download and print off a fun picture to colour in to keep youngsters amused from the Langdale Mountain Rescue website.

Or just curl up in a chair by the fire like Gretel, our office mascot, and wait a little while – there will be different weather along soon.
