The Lake District
The Lake District is England’s most recent World Heritage Site and a location inextricably linked with England’s favourite poet, William Wordsworth, and his contemporaries, Southey and Coleridge. It is also the location that inspired Beatrix Potter and gave colour and context her Little Tales, which started with the Tale of Peter Rabbit.
The area is full of lakes and mountains known as fells and is just an hour to 90 minutes away from Langley Castle, depending where you wish to venture. It is also home to England’s largest National Park, its highest mountain (Scafell), deepest lake (Wastwater) and one of its most visited attractions (Bowness on Windermere and Lake Windermere), so using Langley Castle as a base from which to visit this unique and stunning landscape makes great sense.
