Wetherlam View

Set in the hamlet of Little Langdale in the stunning valley with the same name, and situated between the breath taking Coniston Fells to the south and the Langdale Fells to the north, Wetherlam View is located in the very heart of the Lake District. This modern, detached property has been finished to a high standard by its owners and offers great quality in a stunning location.

The L shaped lounge offers triple aspect views across the valley and has a cosy log burning stove. The large kitchen/dinner is a real focal point and the owner claims the view from the kitchen sink to be one of the finest in Britain! The large dining table provides a great place for friends and family to gather and socialise. The bedrooms are well appointed and offer a welcoming retreat after a day on the fells.

Little Langdale offers beautiful mountain views in every direction and is a walkers paradise with walks of all levels direct from the door, The nearby Slater’s Bridge is one of the most photographed views in the Lake District and is only a short walk from the cottage, as is the awesome Cathedral Cave. Relax for a local beer and home cooked food in the neighbouring, family run, Three Shires Inn, a popular Lakeland Hostelry and the focal point of the valley. Little Langdale offers a selection of routes for those with mountain bikes, and if you have your eye on the high fells, Coniston Old Man, Wetherlam and Swirl Howe can all be reached from the path that starts just across the lane.

Additional Information

A holiday home in Little Langdale makes a magical retreat for walking in the Lake District, or simply soaking up the breath taking scenery. The road through the valley winds its way past Little Langdale Tarn beneath the north of the Coniston Fells before it splits to head west over the ancient Wrynose Pass or north passing the beautiful Blea Tarn en-route to Great Langdale.

The Three Shires Inn offers hearty homemade fare and local ales. Walks of all standards abound and the famous Cathedral Cavern and Slaters Bridge are both within easy reach

When you wish to head out and explore the rest of the Lakes, you can pass pretty little Elterwater on your way to Skelwith Bridge and the A593. From here, head south to Coniston or north to Ambleside - a sophisticated village on the northern shores of Lake Windermere.
