Beautiful Ireby is a tranquil village in the peaceful North Lakes, ideal for visiting Skiddaw and Bassenthwaite Lake with Keswick and Cockermouth just a short drive away. Whatever the time of year, Emily's Nook at the Black Lion offers the perfect location for a couple to spend some quality time together in captivating Cumbria.


Warm and cosy
We recently stayed in Emily's Nook, a flat above The Black Lion pub in Ireby, Cumbria.? The flat was clean, warm and cosy.? On Tuesday, we decided to have a meal in the pub, only to discover that meals weren't served that evening.? However, Mandy, the chef, said that was no problem, opened up the kitchen and?produced four excellent meals - nothing was too much trouble to her. Not many pubs would have responded in that way.? Many thanks Mandy and Mark, the owner

Great place to stay, close to Keswick, very friendly
My husband and I stayed here 5-12 July 2017 and we had a great time. It's about a 15 min drive to Keswick but there are lots of other little villages close by such as Bassenthwaite and Braithwaite etc. It has easy access to all the walks around the Keswick area and we did Skiddaw after parking in Bassenthwaite village and walking from there, you can also access Skiddaw from High End B&B - there's a lay-by close where you can park. We also did Catbells on our last day. Every walk is very scenic, and even if you just walk from the accommodation there are lovely villages to visit. Our accommodation was very comfortable and had all necessities provided The king size bed was extremely comfortable and the bedding was lovely Some small issues that we had were dealt with immediately by the management but one small improvement I would add would be a better selection of glasses in the kitchen (bigger wine glasses!!!). The pub below the accommodation (The Black Lion) serves excellent home made and locally produced food and I would personally recommend the lasagne The village of Ireby is lovely and the locals made myself and my husband feel very welcome. We will definitely pay a visit back here on our next trip to the Lake District
