A labour of love - George Trevelyan's Langdale 

George Macaulay Trevelyan may well be a name you’ve never heard, but here in Langdale we owe him rather a lot. George and his love for this valley have shaped what you see here today, so this year we’re celebrating his legacy and asking the question, what can we do to continue it?

Relax at Sticklebarn 

Spend some time together this Spring at Sticklebarn, our pub in Langdale. This isn’t a traditional pub experience, it’s a National Trust pub and we do things a little differently; with fire pits, blankets, board games and hearty food.

Access for all - with a little help from the Disabled Ramblers 

We have a plan to significantly improve access for mobility-challenged visitors in Langdale by installing two all-terrain hydro-powered electric Trampers for people to borrow from Sticklebarn. We discussed this idea with the Disabled Ramblers group and they kindly agreed to come along for a ramble in Langdale and undertake an access audit for us.
