Autumn highlights in Langdale

Once the summer crowds are gone, autumn is all about eeking out the daylight on wind-swept walks. Wild days are rounded off at Sticklebarn, telling tales of the day’s adventures and tucking in to warming food. Cosy up around the fireside, or grab a blanket and head out to the terrace where you can kick back, relax and share your experiences with your fellow adventurers.

Take a walk

Langdale is a natural playground, with walks to suit all abilities. See the changing colours as you tackle a major peak or a low level walk with unforgettable views. Choose from our list of walks that takes you around Blea Tarn – perfect for all ages and abilities; along the uninhabited valley of Mickleden; or up to Stickle Tarn past rock pools and dramatic waterfalls. 

Cosy Camping 

There’s nothing quite like camping among the nature and stunning landscape of the Lake District, and in Langdale, camping in the cooler months can be cool rather than just chilly. Our selection of cosy hideaways is sure to keep you snug at night. By day, retreat to Sticklebarn for a warm welcome, roaring fires and hearty food. 

Grand Day Out in Cumbria 

Join the Grand Day Out team in Langdale for an exciting weekend including trails runs, fells runs, guided walks, cycle sportives, workshops, talks, music and general outdoor fun. Saturday 21 and 22 October: http://www.granddayoutcumbria.org.uk/ for tickets and info.

Half-term family fun 

Sticklebarn is a great place for families. It 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, free spooky film screenings, evening bat walks with the Rangers and hearty campfire food.

Don’t forget the pooch

Well-behaved dogs are more than welcome at Sticklebarn, even muddy ones. Dog towels, water bowls and doggy treats are provided and we even have a special doggy menu, so everyone in your party can relax after a hard day on the fells.
