“4th visit this summer”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in May 2013

We are back for a fourth visit this summer 2015, which is a ringing endorsement for this stunning, characterful lakeland property. Our extended family of 8 sleeps in great comfort, with views across sheep-filled fields and down across St Johns in the Vale with barely a man-made structure in-site. A slightly-longer-than-short walk to the local Threlkeld pub allows us to justify any delicious warm puddings on the menu. Loathe to write this review really in case booking a stay becomes more challenging!…

“Brilliant spacious property with beautiful views”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This is our 2nd visit to the Ings and we weren't disappointed. The owners have recently put in a new kitchen which was lovely (only problem was the cooker hood extractor was very noisy?)
All the rooms were well furnished and comfortable and we loved the open fire.
The views are beautiful and although the we went in March the gardens are pretty and would be lovely in the summer with benches and a balcony leading out from the upper sitting room.

“Ings never disappoints!”
Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have stayed at Ings many times for our annual visit to The Lakes. It never fails to provide us with a fantastic base for all members of our extended family during our stay. Inside Ings the spacious rooms are beautifully furnished so a bad weather day is never a hardship! Outside, the location and views are second to none. We will definitely look forward to visiting Ings next year.

“Lovely weekend!”
Reviewed 3 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I've just stayed at Ings & had a fantastic weekend. Stayed for 2 nights (we booked for 3) with my Mum, Dad & Nanna (who has some mobility issues) & we all found it perfect.
The location is fantastic - a 5/10 minute drive to Keswick & 20 min drive from Penrith making it really easy to get about. & the fact that it was only 2 mins of tight country roads off the A road meant even my Mum didn't get stressed!
The cottage was spotless when we arrived & everything in good condition. The kitchen was stocked with all the cutlery, crockery & appliances you need. Which helped great with Saturday nights curry!
Although only 4 of us stayed the space in Ings is great - easily fit 10 people of not more. & lots of things to play, watch & see for kids as well as everyone else.
Overall had a great weekend. The only reason I didn't rate this a 5 overall was because on the Friday night when we arrived, although the heating was on it did take quite a while for the property to get warm. But by Saturday morning it was absolutely fine. I imagine there's not been many visitors around this time so may be why it took a little longer to warm up.
Nevertheless would definitely stay again.
