About the local area

Quality real ales and traditional Lakeland grub can be enjoyed at Emily’s Black Lion (below the apartment). If you fancy a larger selection of drinks then head to 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.
