“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

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.

“Excellent cottage with great views”
Reviewed May 30, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just returned from a weeks stay at ings, booked ings for my 65th birthday to take all the family 6 adults and 3 grand children aged 2 8 and 12 and had a great week relaxing and walking, ings is a lovely cottage with plenty space inside and outside, the two lounges are great the upstairs one which has plenty of games and toys for the children. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and is equipped with everything you need. From ings you can walk into the village via the footpath at the rear of ings or by the country lane leading to the cottage, the village has two good pubs which also do good food, you can also walk into keswick via the old railway line this is a beautiful walk through the wood along the side of the river . Would definitely visit ings in the future .
Thanks Nick for a lovely week

“When in the lakes, we won't ever stay anywhere else now!”
Reviewed May 5, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed here for a week for my 40th birthday.

The owner provided excellent service and clear instructions.

The house was spotless on arrival.

Great location, easy-to-find despite being hidden away, stunning views, good WIFI, very nice inside and comfortable beds.

A good location for walking - both for those who are adventurous and those wanting something more leisurely.

Also good for those who just want to relax and not do very much.

We did a bit of both!

Good pubs, coffee shops and towns / villages close-by.

We will be back.
