Audio Trail

This audio trail will guide you through the recent history of the Great Langdale landscape. You'll learn about the revolution in farming, explore traditional woodland practices, and discover the wildlife- rich hay meadow of days gone by. Listen as you walk to the memories and stories of the people who remember the landscape, it's wildlife, and the transformations that have taken place since the 1940s.

Walking Tips

  1. Always let someone know where you are going just incase of accidents. Especially if you are walking alone.
  2. Make sure you wear the correct footwear and have suitable clothing for different weather conditions e.g. waterproofs in wet weather / sunhats in scorching sun / crampons in snow and ice.
  3. You should always check the weather forecast for the day you are walking as you don't want to get stuck in a storm!
  4. Take as much water to drink as you can carry as the exercise may leave you dehydrated. It's a good idea to take sandwiches aswell so you can have a picnic on the tops.

Fresh Air is Free

In association with Nurture Lakeland Langdale is taking part in the "Fresh Air is Free" Campaign that aims to help reduce car travel within tourism.

Reducing car travel doesn’t need to be boring. We don’t necessarily want people to put themselves out of their way and get on a bus. We want visitors to realise what amazing things there are to do right on their doorstep of their accommodation.

This way, visitors can free themselves of parking charges and traffic jams. They can absorb themselves in local culture and landscapes. Visitors can take their time, enjoy their holiday at their own pace and maybe even take advantage of the situation and enjoy sampling the local fine ales!

We have put together 6 local attractions that can be accessed via foot from The Langdale Estate. View these 6 attractions here.
