Black Moss Pot | Hidden Gem in the Lake District, England

Updated: Jan 3

Enjoy one of the quietest and peaceful walks in the Lake District, with some amazing waterfalls and pools (the pools are shallow too so perfect for the younger ones!). The water is so clear, and you'll be awarded with some stunning views across the fields more notably Scafell Pike.

Not only is Black Moss Pot a great place for a cold wild swim, it's also great for those wanting an enjoyable hike! Why not enjoy a morning walk through the Langstrath Valley and then return to the Langstrath Inn for a well deserved beverage?


For those staying at the nearby campsite, it's only a short walk from it so it's the ideal spot to get there early before everybody else turns up! It's an amazing spot for everybody of all ages to enjoy.

Lovely place for a plunge and swim, made all the better by being hidden away between rocks. – Google Review

It's quite the journey to get to Black Moss Pot, and you'll definitely need your wetsuit to get the most out of it. But if you're prepared to put the work in, you'll be treated with natural beauty at its finest!
