For a peaceful, but perfectly convenient Lake District cottage holiday, especially for keen walkers, Clappersgate is a wonderful location. The tiny hamlet is only a mile from shops, Windermere lake shore attractions and restaurants in Ambleside, nestled at the entrance to the breath taking Langdale Valley. Inspiring scenery, renowned Lake District walks on the Landgale Pikes and vibrant village life are therefore all within incredibly easy reach.
Ambleside is noted as the ‘gem of the Lake District’, thanks to its sublime location on the northern shore of Lake Windermere, it’s friendly local character, and also its distinctly cosmopolitan feel. Lose-yourself shops, tempting delicatessens, cosy Lakeland pubs and acclaimed Lake District restaurants are all part of the hustle and bustle of this memorable village.
The Langdale Valley is the most photographed part of the Lake District National Park, and you’ll soon see why. Wander through breath taking scenery, untouched and barely inhabited, bar a few excellent country pubs and a scattering of traditional Lake District cottages.
To explore the wider reaches of the Lake District, a holiday cottage in Clappersgate provides an excellent base. Between Ambleside and Langdale on the A593, you’re ideally placed to also explore Grasmere, Hawkshead and Coniston.
