“Great.... again!”
Reviewed May 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This was our third visit to Ings and we have already booked for next year, which probably says all I need to say! Great cottage, great location.

“Beautiful house with amazing views”
Reviewed April 29, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have just got back from staying at the Ings - amazing house. The house is so big - 2 lounges to keep everyone happy! The owners have provided everything you could need on a holiday - games, dvd's and toys. Would recommend it 100%. The owners are very helpful.

“It doesn't get much better than this!”
Reviewed February 22, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A beautiful house,ideal for families of all ages. At the foot of Blencathra.

If you like your walking and Fell running you won't need to use your car again after getting here. Although a car isn't necessary,as public transport and internet services, serves well.

Down the road is Keswick with all the outdoor shops, booths supermarket and numerous coffee shops if needed.

We'd love to come back.

“Comfortable and spacious house below Blencathra”
Reviewed February 17, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The house had everything we needed and was homely and comfortable. It is a very short drive to Keswick, or a pleasant walk, and there are other good walks straight from the house.

“Large and comfortable farmhouse near Keswick”
Reviewed January 8, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

people found this review helpful

This is a spacious and very comfortable farmhouse suitable for an extended family or a small group. It is set by itself in open fields below Blencathra and close to the village of Threlkeld. It is clean and well equipped. There are even two televisions in case you can't agree what to watch! There is plenty of parking space for at least 5 cars.
A number of walks can be done on Skiddaw and Blencathra direct from the house and there are many more within a short car journey. If the weather is poor Keswick is only a short distance away.
There is good pub in Threlkeld that does meals, but it is popular so it might be worthwhile phoning in advance.
This is our second visit and I'm sure it will not be the last.

We had a fantastic 4 nights at the Ings. The property's amazing and ideally located with great views.
The service from the very start of the booking to staying then afterwards was excellent.
The house was really impressive and the 8 of us had plenty of room.
We have booked again as we can't wait to return.
