“Seriously fantastic house in a seriously fantastic location!”
Reviewed 23 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!

“Amazing cottage in an beautiful location”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We were all pleasantly surprised by the cottage on our arrival and grew to enjoy our stay more as the week progressed. Fantastic accommodation with comfortable beds, great dining and social areas with a fully functional kitchen made the stay pleasurable.
Tip.
When showering let the downstairs ensuite occupants know, because the shower upstairs will stop running if downstairs run their shower at the same time, this caught a couple of friends out, but once realised everything worked great.

“Fantastic cottage, brilliant location.”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Ing's cottage from 11th September for one week.
Being keen walkers and very familiar with the lake district we wanted a cottage that had great access to the fells as well as being able to walk to a pub for a meal after an exhilarating day.
Ings cottage ticked all the box's.
The cottage itself has a fantastic layout very quirky and homely, the location directly opposite Blencathra meant we could eat a hearty breakfast enjoying great views from the cottage then set off with the added bonus of no car !!! You cant beat that also to top it all after a lovely warm shower we were able to walk from the cottage into the village for a fabulous meal at the horse and farrier pub.
This cottage lives up to everything the description says we cant wait to go back again.
