Spring time in Langdale

After a long winter, the early signs of spring are beginning to make an appearance – lambs are bounding round the fields, the first buds of spring are peeking through and birds are making their nests. Put on your woolly coat and explore the beautiful Langdale valley before warming up with a hot drink and some hearty food at our pub, Sticklebarn.

Langdale Trail
Every Day from 1 April, free

Follow this low level route around the valley floor, taking in some of Langdale’s most iconic spring views whilst discovering more about this landscape’s vibrant past and those who helped shape it. Pick up your free copy from Sticklebarn or ask a member of the team in Stickle Ghyll car park. 

Sleep under the stars
Camping in Langdale is a complete escape from the bustle of modern life. It’s just you, your nearest and dearest and the great outdoors with no interruptions. Our camping pods are a great option at this time of year if you fancy a little extra comfort. 

Take a spring walk 
With the days getting longer, the green hills beckon promising fresh air and adventure. You could tackle the Langdale Pikes or just go for an amble around Blea Tarn which offers amazing views of the Pikes. 

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.

Wet day movies
We all know that sometimes it can get a little bit wet in the Lake District, and Langdale is no exception. Retreat from the rain and pop to Sticklebarn on any wet Saturday – or school holiday day – for movies on the big screen upstairs.
