Relax and refuel at Sticklebarn in Langdale

Sticklebarn is the best place in Langdale to relax after a day on the fells. This isn’t a traditional pub experience, it’s a National Trust pub and we do things a little differently.


Our menu is designed to satisfy hungry adventurers and we pride ourselves on ensuring that all our meals are prepared freshly on site. We have five real ales on tap, we stock a range of speciality bottled beers, serve great wines by the glass and have an extensive whisky menu.

So come along and get stuck in. After all, the more you eat and drink, the more we can do to look after Langdale.


Believe it or not, Langdale's not all about romping up hills, we all need to relax from time to time. We’re all about comfort. On cooler days the fires will be lit, we have blankets, boardgames and books for you to borrow, towels for drying dogs off with and a clothes dryer over the fireplace where you can hang your wet coats up to dry.

Summer days in Langdale are best rounded off at Sticklebarn, telling tales of the day’s adventures. Join us on the terrace where you can relax around the fire pit and share your experiences with your fellow adventurers.

What’s On


Our mission

Made from stone, slate and timber from the valley, Sticklebarn has served the needs of the generations who farmed this landscape. We continue this tradition and welcome everyone looking for adventure and refreshment here.

We'll source all we can from the valley; water from the fells, wood fuel from our land and electricity from the torrents coming down the ghyll. Most importantly we'll ensure that every penny we make is invested back into this magnificent landscape.
