The typical Sea Region Vacation Cottage will be record and rock created, oozing with character and appeal, and there's a sizable choice in lots of common neighborhoods and villages such as for instance Ambleside, Windermere, Keswick, Grasmere and Glenridding to name but a few. And you will find some outstanding cottages for the stay. Nevertheless the quaint community, with one main road and one tavern, lined with a row or two of rock cottages, for me personally, Elterwater needs to function as treasure in the Sea District.
The Ponds includes a huge number of mountains and crags and you is likely to be ruined for choice through your stay. There are many of guidebooks, the most popular being Alfred Wainwrights, and a great supply of channels is printed in the walking publications such as for example TGO. But here really are a several examples to whet your appetite. If you are an experienced hillwalker you'll realize that Elterwater is the perfect location for River Section Mountain Guides right from the door, with the Langdale Pikes a short walk away. Set in the Langdales involving the Good Langdale and Little Langdale Valleys, from Elterwater there is a bunch of paths up onto the Langdales for strolling, climbing and scrambling. Langdale Pikes, Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle, Bow Fell, Loughrigg and Crinkle Crags are just a few of the famous River Area hills within walking distance. It is also only a small drive from Elterwater to other important dropped places such as for example Large Road, Helvellyn, ScaFell Pike, Skiddaw and Blencathra.
We love Elterwater and one of our favourite fellwalking routes is just a scramble up Jack's Rake up onto Pavey Ark, a traverse about High Increase and back home to Elterwater for a well received pint in the Britannia Inn.
There are also several local, milder walks across to Grasmere and about Chapel Stile too, if you prefer a far more sedate lowland stroll. A walk down Langdale Beck from Elterwater to consider the Lake gives one of the very spectacular views in the Pond District and is only 10 moments go from Elterwater. Skelwith waterfall can be a favorite gentle outing from Elterwater.
The traditional Anvil Cottage of Helvellyn (from Glenridding or Patterdale) or ScaFell Pike (highest in England) from Wasdale Mind are outstanding times out for skilled Hillwalkers and are good favourites in the Lakes. Numerous manuals are available if you want support planning routes.
