About Ennerdale Apartment

Ennerdale Apartment blends the space and privacy of a self catering apartment with the service and convenience of a hotel in a match made in heaven. A hearty Cumbrian breakfast in the hotel restaurant is included each morning! The one-bedroom apartment is part of the renowned Embleton Spa Hotel, less than two miles from Bassenthwaite in the north-west corner of the Lake District National Park and within easy reach of Cockermouth and the Cumbrian coast. The location is perfect for couples or individuals who appreciate having their own space to relax together with a welcoming bar and restaurant on site.

Who needs the Alps when you have the plunging lakes and soaring peaks of the Lake District. Its beauty is staggering and rivals anywhere in the world, which is one reason it is one of England's top holiday destinations. While the more populated towns around Windermere and the south-east can feel overwhelming and crowded, the north-west corner near Embleton remains calm and peaceful, with virtually empty footpaths and mountain bike trails, and no traffic noise to disturb the serenity. As you climb Skiddaw or sail across Bassenthwaite, it's hard to believe that these glorious mountains were once silt on the seabed, or that the force of a glacier created the sweeping Honister Pass. You may even doubt that the quantity of stars and the brilliance of the night sky is real, but we can assure you that every magnificent sparkle is wonderfully authentic.

Eat, drink and shop in Cockermouth, four miles from the apartment where there are Lidl, Aldi and Sainsbury's supermarkets as well as a butcher, fishmonger, baker and a local market every Friday morning. The ruins of Cockermouth Castle make a lovely spot for a picnic, and admirers of William Wordsworth can see the house where he was born. The easiest way to learn more about this historic town is by following the self-guided Town Trail. Keswick is another wonderful market town that's only a 15-minute drive away, giving you an even wider choice of shops, museums and other attractions.

Guests staying at Ennerdale Apartment can use the hotel's bike storage facility. Ride two miles to the edge of Bassenthwaite and the Dubwath Silver Meadows Nature Reserve. Two of the trails to the top of Skiddaw are suitable for mountain bikes, and the base of the mountain is only nine miles away. Those who prefer a more relaxing route can follow the four-mile path going through Wythrop and passing The Pheasant pub and Dubwath Beck. Fell walking and climbing are two more favourite ways to spend time outdoors, as are fishing and golf. Basing yourself at the Ennerdale Apartment means you're within easy reach of everything.

Day trips can include going to the seaside with beaches like Seascale, Silloth and Crummock within half an hour's drive. The Whinlatter Forest and Lake District Wildlife Park are nearby, and it's simple enough to get to top attractions like the Honister Slate Mine and the Ullswater Steamer. Treat yourself to a few hours at the hotel's spa, and you'll end your holiday feeling revived, body and soul.

Location (The Lake District)

Accommodation Comprises:

The apartment is on the upper floor of the Embleton Spa Hotel - a former farmhouse dating from the 18th Century. A full, stick-to-your-ribs, Cumbrian breakfast in the hotel's dining room is included in the cost. Accommodation is all on one level and includes:

  • Light, spacious living area with multi-aspect windows and unforgettable views over the valley and the mountains. Settle back on the sofa and watch a film on the wide-screen TV, or use the apartment's WiFi to watch or read on your tablet or laptop. A dining table for two sits in front of one of the windows for dinner with a view.
  • Modern kitchen with crockery, glassware, pots, pans and other utensils you'll need to cook tasty meals. There is ample space to store and prepare meals. Being part of the hotel means that you can easily pop downstairs for a pre or post-dinner drink beside the log burner, or book a table at the restaurant and have a night off from cooking.
  • Bedroom with a double bed, bedside tables with reading lights, a chest of drawers and a TV. This room also has a panoramic outlook to stoke your enthusiasm for exploration from the moment you pull back the curtains.
  • Tiled bathroom with a shower over the bath, a heated towel rail, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: Guests can use the hotel's grounds where there is seating to sit with a drink and admire the spectacular sight of the surrounding fells. There is plenty of parking (not allocated).

Additional Information: All utilities, WiFi and bed linen are included in the price, as is a full Cumbrian breakfast each morning and the use of the indoor swimming pool (operated on a timetable basis). Short breaks are possible all year round depending on availability (1 night minimum during the week and 2 nights over the weekend). Smoking not permitted. Dogs welcome at an additional nightly charge of £5.
