You will always remember the moment your car rumbles over the cattle grid on the road into Elterwater.  The view is literally breathtaking.  This has to be one of the most beautiful scenes on earth.  The Langdale Hotel in the Lake District is tucked away in this perfect setting, a resort style estate, full of everything you need for the ultimate luxury break.

The Langdale Estate started as a small woollen mill in the 17th Century, where the fast flowing water or Langdale Beck powered the mightiest of machinery. Evolving through the years, the Langdale Valleys and Estate have been home to an array of industrial businesses including a Gunpowder Works, leaving behind a trail of history for you to explore.

The Langdale is so much more than just a hotel.  Covering a private 35 acre area, there are various accommodation types available, plus fabulous facilities located in beautiful settings throughout the wooded estate.

It is yours to explore as the hotel provides you with nature trails, historic ‘gunpowder’ walks or valley and fell walks for the more adventurous!

The resort style arrangement works wonderfully well and adds a magical feel to this already splendid establishment.  You have a choice of hotel rooms, different themes and design styles.  There is such a good choice that it comes as no surprise that an unprecedented number of guests return to the Langdale Hotel.


As well as boasting stunning views and luxurious bedrooms, The Langdale Hotel has extensive leisure facilities for guests to use.

  • A 20 metre swimming pool has space for dedicated swimmers and those who wish to splosh about.  Young guests will be happy to find a shallow paddling area with specific sessions for older children with inflatable toys.  Oh, and there is an inbuilt massage seat too!
  • Steam room
  • Spa bath with luxuriating bubbles galore
  • Tropical shower – choose between chilly or soothingly warm – but choose wisely!
  • Deluge shower – four gallons of ice cold water.  Only for the brave.
  • The Sanarium – a perfect blend of sauna heat with steam room humidity – bliss!
  • Fitness suite – with air conditioning and a sprung floor, its perfect for ticking the exercise box
  • Tennis – an outdoor court is available at Elterwater Hall
  • The Exercise Studio – with cardiovascular equipment and free weights, you can work out whilst enjoying TV or listening to CDs.  A fitness assessment can be carried out by a qualified consultant.

A wide range of therapies are available, carried out by highly skilled therapists, covering body, hands and feet, with treatments specifically for men on offer.  Langdale Hotel has a strong association with sought after brands to provide these luxurious treatments, such as Anne Semonin, Elemis, bareMinerals and Shellac.

Wainwright’s Inn – the short walk from the estate to the pub is more than worth your while.  Think award winning real ales and superb pub grub!

Wow! The drive through majestic mountains to arrive in the most luxurious hotel. Roaring log fire, excellent decor and amenities. We walked, we relaxed in the spa, we dined in the restaurant, drank in the local country pub. Can’t wait for our next trip.

I love this place, there’s so much to do, great staff and the most stunning scenery. The weather wasn’t great so we decided not to go walking and just relaxed at the spa. I treated myself to a treatment which was heavenly!
