February half-term in Langdale

The sun has got his hat on for the last weekend of this February half-term, so what better time to get out into the countryside and enjoy some family time. Take a moment to make memories – pick up a board game, enjoy a taste of Cumbria, relax on the terrace and admire the views of the Langdale fells or experience them first hand with a brisk walk. Here are our top tips for enjoying Langdale this half-term.

Relax and refuel at Sticklebarn

Sticklebarn is a National Trust pub and we do things a little differently; with fire pits, blankets, board games and delicious, planet friendly food and drinks. We love Cumbria’s food Heritage and we have some amazing local produce, not least the Herdwick sheep that roam our fells. All of our meat comes from our local award winning butcher Higginsons of Grange and we source all we can from our surroundings and invest our profits back into caring for our magnificent environment. We’re passionate about providing a great choice of tasty food for everyone and we include vegan and vegetarian dishes on our menu, as well as catering for food intolerances. You can download our menu here.

Our top walks in Langdale

Enjoy the countryside in all its glory on one of our walks in the dramatic Langdale Valley. Choose from short, serene low-level walks to fell top expeditions. Combine your adventure with a trip to our pub Sticklebarn for the perfect pit-stop and a hearty meal.

Don’t forget the pooch

Well-behaved dogs are more than welcome at Sticklebarn, even muddy ones. We’ll supply drinking water and doggy treats so everyone in your party can relax after a day on the fells. Please bear in mind these handy hints and tips for a hassle-free dog walk in the area: 
-    Keep your dog on a lead when requested, and especially around wildlife and farm animals. 
-    Watch out for local notices. There may be restrictions in woodland or farmland at sensitive times of year. Spring is lambing time in Langdale and dogs can worry sheep, causing them to lose lambs. 
-    Please always pick up after your dog.
