Things to do in Grasmere Langdale in the Lake District
Starting at Grasmere, you can take a wonderful nine mile walk up on to the fells between Grasmere and Great Langdale; this is a great part of the country to walk in.

Overlooking the village of Coniston is the beautiful fell known as the `Old Man of Coniston'. A part of the Furness Fells, this summit is over 800 metres high and is interesting to the eye with evidence mining that was done here years ago.

Linked to Lake Grasmere by the River Rothay, Rydal Water is one of the smallest lakes in Cumbria measuring 3/4 mile long and 1/4 mile wide. Up the hill overlooking the lake, you can find RydaL Caves in the hill rock, they are surprisingly large and over 200 years ago they were used as a quarry supplying stone to the local villages.
The dramatic Langdale Pikes can be found at the head of the Langdale Valley and can often be seen from many miles away overlooking the vale.
The World Famous Faeryland
This is the home of Grasmere tea, Romany Tea and Faery Grey blends. Enjoy a romantic rowing boat trip out on the lake and return to a cup of tea and a freshly baked scone!
Just a short stroll away from the village of Grasmere, you will find Grasmere Lake which is one of the smaller lakes in the Lake District measuring one mile in length and half a mile in width.

The National Trust owns most of the valley's farms, the glaciated valley of Mickleden, a Victorian garden in High Close and the dramatic Dungeon Ghyll.
