“Second visit... already booking next year!”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was our second time staying at Ings.

As a group we all had different interests - hill walking, mountain biking, pubs, shopping, feeding the lambs, lazy days, reading and watching movies. Ings is the perfect base to do all of this. So, it doesn't matter what you are in the Lakes to do, Ings will be great for you.

The house is really nice, clean, spacious and the view from the house is one of the most stunning you will get in the Lakes.

Highly recommended. Already making our next booking!

“Cosy, comfortable, beautifully furnished, fantastic views”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have all loved our stay at Ings. The weather has been cold, wet and snowy most days and so the welcoming fires and cosy living rooms have been all the more welcome.
Our teenage children have had the space to spread out and tackle exam revision as well as make full use othe wifi.
We have loved the remote feel and fantastic views yet Keswick is only a couple of miles away. We have hardly used the car, climbing up Blencathra and Skiddaw from the doorstep and cycling part of the sea to sea route.
Everything works too and there's lots of equipment.
Barbara supplied us with lots of coal and logs on arrival.
Bringing Slippers is a good idea as the beautiful stone floors are a little cold to walk on.
Really don't want to go home!

“Seriously fantastic house in a seriously fantastic location!”
Reviewed 24 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Ings was without a doubt, the best place we have stayed using TripAdvisor. The house was absolutely gorgeous with so much space for our whole family which included Grandma too. The kids had trouble deciding which room to sleep in! Every 'need' has been catered for in the house and everything was to a very high standard indeed. The location of the property couldn't have been better with views in every direction, 10 mins from Keswick and a stone's throw from the A66 (but far enough to know you are away from everything). The house was toasty warm in mid December and there was plenty of hot water. Nick was great to deal with and kept us posted, particularly in light of early December flooding - Ings is high up so unaffected. Evidence of the floods could be seen in Keswick (gorgeous little town) but was definitely getting back on it's feet
5+ ⭐️ From us!
