    “If you're looking for a perfectly situated location for visiting this area of the lakes, well you've come to the right place.”

    Sleep in a comfy bed, eat your breakfast whilst watching the weather roll in over the hills, spend the evening in the pub below hosted by the friendliest of Landlords and welcoming locals. The beer's good, pudding's a treat, nothing was too much trouble and the fresh cod goujons would have fed a family of four! This village is the perfect place to get away from it all but within easy driving distance of the splendid town of Keswick, lakes and mountains. You can walk to Mae's, about a mile ...

    Sleep in a comfy bed, eat your breakfast whilst watching the weather roll in over the hills, spend the evening in the pub below hosted by the friendliest of Landlords and welcoming locals. The beer's good, pudding's a treat, nothing was too much trouble and the fresh cod goujons would have fed a family of four! This village is the perfect place to get away from it all but within easy driving distance of the splendid town of Keswick, lakes and mountains. You can walk to Mae's, about a mile and a half, for a change of venue for lunch, dinner or a look round the gallery, lovely things for sale. If you're a Hugh Walpole, Herries Chronicles fan then this village is mentioned in the book. Our favourite walk was from Ashness Bridge to Watendlath via the lower path, lunch at the cafe and returning via the road. There are so many wonderful places to visit, impossible to do it all in one week, so we will be returning to Emily's Nook, perfect for one or two. Thank you Landlord.

About the location

IREBY

Bassenthwaite 5 miles; Keswick 12 miles.

Ireby nestles in the peaceful fells of the northern Lake District, in the beautiful area to the north of Keswick known as 'Back of Skiddaw'. Once a thriving market town, with the market cross believed to date back to 1200, Ireby is now a truly unspoilt, peaceful fell village. The peaks of Great Calva and Knott look down on the village and the nearby Aughertree Fell was the site of a Bronze Age farm and the remains of a pre-Roman road are still in evidence, a unique and most complete settlement from the Iron Age period. Nearby Bassenthwaite Lake itself, while boasting gentler scenery than others in the region, is still one of the most picturesque places in England. Places of interest nearby include Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Lake with small open-air theatre (reputedly frequented by poets such as Tennyson and Wordsworth), Trotters Farm, and Dodd Wood. Most of the attractions of the Lake District are within easy reach and the quieter Northern Fells are almost on the doorstep. The nearby towns of Cockermouth and Keswick, both have weekly markets and offer a good range of amenities. The scenery of the Yorkshire Dales is within touring distance, as is the city of Carlisle and Hadrians Wall.
