Sitting at the top of Little Langdale valley this classical Lakeland tarn is a good example of a ‘hanging valley’ and a short stroll beyond gives way to stunning views over to the Great Langdale valley. On a cold November day with the first dusting...More

It's peaceful and serene. Our dogs love to swim here and the views are simply stunning. Parking is available for those who aren't hiking all the way through the area.

My wife and I searched for this site because her Grandfather painted a picture of the lake and house in the late 40’s. The area was exactly as he painted. Beautiful small lake, pasture, and the surrounding hills make a perfect quiet walk memorable.
