People putting on their fleeces and walking boots for a trip to the Lake District may be interested to learn a hotel there has been given a top award for being environmentally friendly.

The Langdale Hotel and Spa in Great Langdale was recently named Green Hotel of the Year at the annual Hotel Cateys - the hospitality Oscars - for its woodchip boiler, which heats the premises and in doing so reduces the building's need for propane gas.

Director of sales and marketing Dan Visser explained the venue also uses extensive recycling and low-energy devices where possible.

He stated: "We have a bio-diversity plan across the site, as it is a big site. That ensures we work to provide the best habitats for nature and wildlife that we can do."

Those visiting the Langdales can enjoy a wide variety of walks, which includes a route via Mickleden to the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike.

Other peaks accessible from the valley include High Raise, the Langdale Pikes, Bowfell, Crinkle Crags, Pike of Blisco, Glaramara and Great End.
