Long Valley Yurts very first site and our names sake with Langdale being the Norse word for Long Valley. A special place for us and for anyone who visits. Situated at the head of the simply stunning Great Langdale Valley and guarded by the dominating Langdale Pikes this site is a walkers and climbers dream come true.

From the moment you open the door of the Yurt you will be greeted with the grandeur of the Langdale Valley, it really is something to behold. With Scafell within striking distance, some of the best walking and climbing you are ever likely experience in the Lakes you couldn’t ask for a more idyllic location. Whether it’s adventure, a day out in the mountains, an amble down the valley or sitting back a deck chair soaking up the scenery Langdale is the beating heart of the Lake District and has it all to offer.

Within a hop, skip and jump from the Yurts are three traditional Lakeland pubs serving great local food and a fine selection of local ales, with the Old Dungeon Ghyll being the closest and one of the oldest in the Lakes. For the more adventurous head to the Stickle Ghyll for some wild swimming in the deep pools and waterfalls. Or for the more sedate walk up to the beautiful Loughrigg Tarn for a picnic with a views over the Langdales. See the What’s Cool page of the website for other fun and alternative days activities and days out.

Also available are an array of outdoor activities both from the site or short drive away. Why not try moonlit canoeing, stand up paddle boarding or make a full day of it for a peddle and paddle adventure? Also available to book with your stay are all manner of Bushcraft experiences as well as some more traditional outdoor activities such as gorge scrambling and rock climbing. Adventure awaits, seize the day. See our THINGS TO DO page for more information and booking.

Further afield Ambleside, Windermere. Grasmere and Coniston are a short drive away. In between are an array of hidden places to explore and sites to visit, there’s something on offer for everyone.

Back at the Yurts after a day out why not enjoy a BBQ under one of the best starlit skies you are ever likely to see anywhere. The Great Langdale site has three 18ft Yurts comfortably accommodating six persons per Yurt.
