Jacks Nook is a real hideaway for two people. This traditional Lakeland slate built terraced cottage is situated below Church Bank cottage and provides an excellent bolt-hole to escape from the world. At the entrance to the cottage is the bathroom and down several stairs is the double bedroom, open plan lounge / dining area and kitchen. French windows open from the lounge onto a small paved area set high above the main village. Jack’s Nook has everything you could need – it’s cosy, characterful and in an excellent location.
The heart of the village is just a short stroll away where guests can find the well stocked local convenience store – the Langdale Co-op, Brambles Cafe, the Village Church – The Great Langdale Holy Trinity and Wainwrights Inn which sells local brewed ales and provides good homemade food. The famous climbers inn The Old Dungeon Ghyll, New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel and Stickle Barn Tavern (now owned by the National Trust) are just up the Langdale Valley.
Jacks Nook is a good base to explore the many activities in the local area with some of the best scenery and walking right on the doorstep.
There is no designated parking with Jacks Nook but you may find parking underneath the church wall or around the village.
The property is not far from a main bus route. Elterwater, the famous Britannia Inn and Slates Bistro are a short stroll away with a fabulous walk along the river. The cottage is also handily placed to access the Langdale Valley, 4 miles from Ambleside and close to neighbouring villages of Grasmere and Hawkshead.
