Blea Tarn (Langdale). The Lake District


Blea Tarn is a small body of water in the Langdale Valley. It’s an iconic Lake District scene as you get the Langdale Pikes filling the skyline which also reflects in the water.

I often use this as a starting point to climb up Lingmoor Fell, Side Pike or Pike O’ Blisco

There is a path that leads around the tarn walking through the woods and then up to the cattlegrid at the head of the valley. It’s a short walk but you get a mixture of different views along the way. At the head of the valley you can also look up at Pike O Blisco, Crinkle Crags, Bowfell and the Langdale Pikes.

The road to get here is usually a pot hole filled mess, so take your time on your way here.


Difficulty: Beginner

Best time of the day to go here: It’s nice all day. Early morning is good for the sunrise

Best time of the year to visit: Winter is good if the water is frozen
