    This traditional Lakeland farmhouse sits nestled on the southern slopes of Blencathra in a quiet rural setting just outside the village of Threlkeld. The location in the heart of the Lake District National Park is ideal for keen walkers and cyclists, though the property also makes an excellent base for those who wish to simply relax and enjoy the stunning views and local wildlife. Lambs graze in the field behind Ings and the large south facing garden is frequented by red squirrels and a wide variety of bird life. The property is reached up a tree lined track through a five-barred gate from the lane.

    Ings was originally refurbished from a 17th century farm house and adjoining barn by the actor and Oscar winning director Coli...

This is everyone's favourite but especially the children who love the walk to Threlkeld through the sheep. The position of Ings gives you excellent views in all directions with St John's in the vale to the front and Blencathra at the rear. The property has been refurbished with a lovely new kitchen. The owner was especially helpful. more

We stayed at Ings in 2014 and loved it so much that we booked again for the same time this year. Our experience was just as good (see Aug 2014 review). An ideal location, with a 10-minute walk across fields or road to the village, with it's two good pubs. An hour's gentle walk into Keswick. An ideal base to...

We've just returned from the Ings after a fantastic stay with friends at the Ings cottage the owner Nick has described the cottage to a Tee. The cottage and the surroundings are breath taking and the cottage was very well equipped and plenty of room to accommodate the 8 of us and we all hope to return next year hopefully. more
