An outstanding place to stay. The room was excellent and the breakfast was brillant, I have not got one bad thing I can say about the place. I look forward to staying there again in the future. The host made us feel like part of her family and nothing was too much trouble

A really nice place to stay. Not on top of a hill, luckily, as we were walking back from Staveley for a couple of nights, but I really have nothing bad to say about it. Friendly reception, comfortable rooms, a well cooked breakfast (including a special each day)...spot on

I chose the The Hill Ings without any preference to get away for a day from the hustle and bustle of the city and to enjoy the beauty and scenery of the lake district with my wife. Little wonder the hill turned out to be a very lovely little B&B. Good value for money! The most intriguing thing was that... More

An excellent friendly and welcoming B&B. Superb vegetarian breakfast and well-appointed room. Cannot recommend more highly. The premises are ideally situated close to the M6 and although there is no evening meal there is a handy pub close by.

We stayed for 3 nights. Very convenient location for long distance because it is at the beginning of the park and not far from the best attractions, walks, rides. Very peaceful. Superb hospitality and Jo-Anne is a great cook: breakfast also offered with a special each day, quality was outstanding not the usual cheap sausages. Gerry provides plenty of advice.... More

We enjoyed a short stay at The Hill where we were made very welcome by the proprietors Gerry and Jo-Anne Wilkinson. We had a well appointed room overlooking the garden that was attractively decorated and very comfortable beds. Breakfast was plentiful and with a good selection of hot and from the cold buffet.

My daughter and I stayed with Jo- Anne and Gerry for 4 nights. We had a wonderful time and Jo-Anne could not have been more helpful. Breakfast are really good. It was handy having the Watermill pub so close.

This is a wonderful place to stay as a base for the Lakes. We were amazed to have found such a peaceful and high quality B&B. We stayed in the small bedroom, it was a delightful room having all facilities but the emphasis being on high quality. The weather was good and we were fortunate to sit out in the... More

We stayed for 2 nights while attending a wedding in Windermere. Very convenient location and easy to find. Very welcoming hosts, the room was lovely, we especially liked the window seat and very comfortable bed, we slept incredibly well. The breakfast was wonderful both days with plenty of choice and the homemade jams were fabulous. Would definitely recommend to anyone... More
