Fresh air is free in the Lake District so “Drive Less See More” as the Go Lakes Travel programme campaign has been promoting over the last couple of years. Working with businesses throughout Cumbria and the Lake District encouraging and enabling visitors and guests to make greater use of sustainable modes of travel and car free activities.
From both the Langdale and Brimstone Hotels, guests can walk to six different places of interest, cycle on the many routes around the Langdale Estate and beyond, walk many of the fells in the Langdale Valley and even hire electric cars.
Experiencing the Lake District in these ways is so much better in so many ways. It is great exercise with a sense of achievement when completing a fell walk or bike ride for example. The real Lake District is viewed one to one, not through glass. Less cars on the road means less noise and much less pollution and in the busy summer months walking and cycling if often quicker than a car anyway!
Even back at the Brimstone suites, fresh air is a big factor and in abundance. Each of the 16 suites making up Brimstone have their own private balconies. The suites lead out through full length and width sliding doors with a table and chairs each and plants. When the doors are fully open, even when inside the suite, guests have a sense of being outside and the use of natural, local and sustainable materials echo this perfectly.
