Emily's Nook description

Nestling on the northern fringe of the Lake District above a quaint village pub (one of the oldest in Cumbria), Emilys Nook is a cosy bolthole ideal for exploring the northern lakes. Set on the first floor and furnished to a high standard, the open plan living room/kitchen has lovely views over the village and the northern fells including Skiddaw, one of England’s highest mountains.

The fells can be accessed right from your door and provide great walks for all abilities with stunning scenery without the hustle and bustle of the southern lakes. In the evening you can enjoy wandering just downstairs to enjoy a meal in what the Cumberland News has described as one the best places to eat in Cumbria.

If you are fancying a tipple back in your apartment, there are not many better places to get them than the local Lakes Distillery, just 6 miles away, home to England’s only whisky, you can even take in a fascinating tour of how this came to be made. While that’s fun for the adults, the kids may prefer a day at the Lake District Wildlife Park, 5 miles away, where they can see over 100 species of exotic animals, everything from Asian Short Clawed Otters to Zebras! You can even have a personal encounter with some animals with the park’s ‘experience the wild’ encounters, described by The Guardian as a ‘life highlight’.

It is just a 25-minute drive to both the popular and bustling lakeside town of Keswick and the traditional market town of Cockermouth. The charming village of Caldbeck is a scenic drive across Caldbeck Common. Beach 14 miles. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 20 yards.

Emilys Nook can be booked together with Emilys View (UK1050) to accommodate up to six guests.
