I’ve spent a lot of time in and around the Great Langdale valley in the last five years, regularly staying in a beautiful house in Elterwater with family and friends. From the doorstep there are fantastic walks and amazing views and whether heading out for a day on the hills, strolling to Chester’s for a slice of cake or staying in for a quiet read it’s a great place to be. Here is a gallery of some of the sights in and around Elterwater and the Langdales. There are lots of happy memories for me here – if you haven’t been to the Lakes these pictures are the tip of the iceberg; I hope you get a chance to visit!
This post is dedicated to Chris Eley, a wonderful man who recently passed away and with whom my family and I spent many happy hours, climbing mountains and getting lost. Elterwater was one of Chris’s favourite places and will always remind me of him.
