Central & Southern Lakes

Langdale Pikes in Lake District

The Central and Southern Lakes have much to offer the visitor including magnificent fells, sparkling lakes, bustling Lakeland villages and places off the beaten track. Grasmere is probably the Lake District’s most popular village. Situated at the heart of the Lake District, surrounded by magnificent fells and a beautiful lake within a few minutes stroll, it’s not surprising that the village is largely given over to tourism. The village is overlooked by Helm Crag, also known as ‘the Lion and the Lamb’ one of Wainwright’s favourite hills. Fringed by woodlands the beautiful lakes of Grasmere and Rydal Water are just a few minutes’ walk from the village. The unmistakeable outlines of Crinkle Crags, Bow Fell and the Langdale Pikes form the skyline at the head of Great Langdale, with Pike of Blisco and Lingmoor separating the valley from Little Langdale and the bulky outline of Wetherlam beyond. The Great Langdale valley stretches from Elterwater, one of the most picturesque villages in the Lake District, and neighbouring Chapel Stile, to the National Trust owned Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. Borrowdale penetrates deep into the central massif of the Lake District from the southern end of Derwentwater and is one of the most beautiful places in Cumbria. The entrance to Borrowdale is guarded by Castle Crag which offers panoramic views northwards from its summit across Derwentwater to Skiddaw. Coniston Water is one of the most imposing and beautiful of the English lakes lying under the gaze of Coniston Old Man. The village of Coniston lies at the head of Coniston Water nestling between Coniston Water and the Coniston Fells. The village owes its early prosperity to copper mining and slate quarrying. Today it is a busy tourist destination, especially popular with fell walkers. The meandering village of Troutbeck lies above the verdant Troutbeck Valley at the start of the famous Kirkstone Pass which links Windermere with Ullswater. The village enjoys a tranquil setting, bypassed by the modern road, although it is only a few miles from the popular lakeside towns of Windermere, Ambleside and Bowness.
