The New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel


New beginnings at the NDG.

Due to covid restrictions from the day we re opened we have only been able to serve bed and breakfast but with a bar menu and great specials board. This has worked very well but we did hope to go back to dinners early October. However with the restrictions and we think a few more to come we have decided to carry on this until the forseable future.

We are offering some great bed and breakfast breaks that can be found under the tariff heading, these offers can only be offered with telephone bookings , this will be until further notice. A new bistro style menu has been bought into place, this offers some of our classic style dishes but lots of new and exciting dishes which will be changed regulary.

The dining room will be open with a few new touches and we can cater for all our guests at various intervals with a range of different dishes.

We all Thank you for your support over the years, but especially during this covid pandemic and we hope to see you all again in the coming Winter months.

Walking From New Dungeon Ghyll

The stairway to Heaven starts from right outside the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. Climbing beside a stream of waterfalls a series of steps, built from the volcanic rocks of Lakeland, heads almost arrow straight for a skyline of mountains. These are the Langdale Pikes. Harrison Stickle, meaning the steep place of Harrison, is the highest while on either hand rise summits to delight both walkers and climbers. Then reaching the top a glorious view suddenly appears with the precipice of Pavey Ark rising almost vertically from Stickle Tarn.

But it's not just the Langdale Pikes that hold the secret of the NDG, as the hotel is often affectionately known. For the gentlest of days there's the stroll down the valley to Elterwater where you can get a beer or a cup of tea and then, if you're feeling a bit out of puff, hop on a bus that will take you back.

Facing the hotel is the long ridge of Lingmoor Fell, which gets the name from its magnificent August swathe of purple heather. If the ascent feels a bit too energetic how about a circuit of the fell taking in Blea Tarn, another delightful gem of the Langdale valley.

Crinkle Crags, whose name becomes obvious when you see the serrated outline of the skyline at the valley head, makes a delightful excursion taking in Three Tarns followed by a switchback wander along the crest and a descent past Red Tarn.

Bow Fell can be added as an out and back to the Crinkle Crags excursion, or linked to Esk Pike, while the super energetic can even take in England's highest peak Scafell Pike.

For the young and fit an ascent of Pike of Blisco can be fitted into an afternoon, but there's no need to rush, for it's a great place to play naming the skyline with, according to Wainwright, no less than forty nine summits in view.

Then at the end of the day there's a seat in the garden or outside the hotel bar where you can relax and gaze at the fells and plan tomorrow.
