Wilson Place Cottage is located in the village of Little Langdale and next to the hugely popular Damson View. Created out of an old farmer’s Grade II listed cottage, Wilson Place Cottage provides luxurious modern accommodation in this much sought after and spectacular location.

Accommodation is on one level from the parking area and is for two guests. It comprises of a large lounge, kitchen-diner with modern equipment and appliances and a bedroom with twin beds which can be connected together to make a super-king (please specify on booking). The large wet room makes it suitable for visitors with restricted mobility. Outside there is a small garden and a private patio with breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding fells and the meadows to the rear, which are designated SSSIs (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) – the perfect spot for al-fresco dining. Private parking is available right outside the cottage.

The picturesque Blea Tarn is approximately 2 miles away with gorgeous walks around the tarn and nearby woodlands. Wrynose Pass and Hard Knott Pass are just up the road. You will find the historic Hard Knott Roman Fort built between AD 120 and AD 138 on these roads, one of the loneliest outposts of the Roman Empire. Its walls surrounded granaries, barracks, and a commandant’s house. Outside the main walls are the baths with a sequence of three rooms. An area of flattened ground is believed to be a parade area.

These two famous mountain passes are incredibly steep with uneven surfaces and many hairpin turns. Hard Knott at 1:3 is one of the steepest roads in England. The passes take you from Langdale to the Eskdale Valley through some amazing wild scenery. Definitely worth the drive if you are feeling confident!

You can also visit Eskdale and Ravenglass if you take this route across the pass. Ravenglass is the home of the La’al Ratty meaning “little railway“ in olde Cumbrian dialect. The line is seven miles long with a journey time of 40 minutes each way offering stunning views over the estuaries and countryside with England’s highest mountains as a backdrop. There are great walks between and from the seven intermediate request stops in cosy, half open and open top carriages providing comfort and views as you travel up the line. Although the main season runs from March until October, the railway operates trains during November and December for Christmas through to New Year.

If you are attempting to tick off the Wainwright Routes then Lingmell Fell is right on your doorstep from this property. Part of the Southern Fells group of Wainwrights and roughly 1530′ high it is not too challenging but definitely worth the climb as the views from the top are spectacular.

A short walk up the lane brings you to the Three Shires Inn, a family run free house serving a selection of local real ales and delicious food, just what is needed after a hard day exploring the fells.
