Emily's Nook is a comfortable home away from home in the north Lake District. Offering bright and airy accommodation with rooftop views to the fells, this contemporary apartment is a luxurious way to enjoy this beautiful part of the world. This delightful apartment is situated above the Black Lion, reputed to be one of the oldest traditional inns in Cumbria and oozing with character. Whatever the time of year, Emily's Nook is perfect for a couple's getaway to the Lakes. The apartment overlooks the village square, and is flooded with light from the large picture windows that make the most of the picturesque views. Emily's Nook offers open plan living with squashy sofas that are perfect for curling up in front of the feature electric wood effect stove and a fully equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher and washer/dryer. The master bedroom has a king sized double bed and a contemporary fully tiled shower with walk-in shower cubicle, wash basin and WC. There's no garden at Emily's Nook, but with the warm and welcoming Black Lion downstairs and the peaceful and unspoiled northern fells just a stone's throw outside the delightful village of Ireby, there's plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. The Black Lion serves a range of real ales, home cooked meals and home-baked breads, making it the ideal place to kick back and relax after a busy day in Lakeland.
The North Lakes are the most tranquil area of the Lake District, with majestic Skiddaw and shimmering Bassenthwaite Lake virtually on your doorstep. Away from the hustle and bustle of the central Lakes and the tourist beat, historic Cockermouth is a designated 'gem' town and is therefore preserved as part of the national heritage. The Kirkgate Centre has a varied programme of art and film, and you can also visit the house where Wordsworth was born. Head for vibrant Keswick for outdoor activities and museums, and don't miss a cruise on Derwentwater or a trip to the theatre by the lake.
