  • "Very uncomfortable sofa , chair and bed"

  • "This was our 1st time in Bobbin Cottage loved the open plan of cottage and also having an upstairs toilet room saved having go downstairs."

    Cottage was lovely and clean our dog Molly loved the morning walks, not having an enclosed space was not an issue for us personally. We have stayed in Millrace Cottage before but liked the layout of Bobbin Cottage more. We caught the bus a few of times at the bottom of lane. The area is lovely and highly recommend the farm shop down the lane.

  • "The private patio is separate to the property, not attached."

    This should be made clear. Would have been nice for it to have been gated so we could take the dog off its lead. The parking for the property needs to be more clearly marked. We didn't see it at first as someone else parked in it! A visitors/property info book/local info book would have been nice, eg only found the hair dryer on the last day.

  • "Cottage was immaculately clean, beautiful views over the countryside."

    Lovely cottage with all the amenities you need. Nice location only a couple of miles to Windermere. We took our dog so some gorgeous walks set above Staveley with stunning views for miles. Only aspect we would need in the future - and this is personal choice an enclosed outside area with a gate so we could sit with our dog but the lane the cottage is on is very quiet so we just had keep an eye on him.

The property

"Originally a bobbin mill, this barn conversion is now part of Ings Mill Park; a beautifully landscaped area of holiday homes within 5 acres of woodland alongside the River Gowan.

The open plan living space is great for sociable living, with a lounge / dining area with luxurious furnishings and a picture window.

The modern kitchen zone is well-equipped and very stylish.

House bathroom is also on the ground floor with shower over bath.

Upstairs to the two comfortable double bedrooms, plus 2nd WC and cloakroom.

An elevated private patio gives views across the valley, and short stroll takes you to your local - the award-winning Watermill Inn and microbrewery – with great food and ambience.

You're also only seconds from the A591, meaning your daytrips throughout the Lake District will be easily planned.

Ings is a small hamlet near Staveley, 2 miles from Windermere, and 6 miles from Kendal, on the A591.

The road is one of the country's most scenic, as well as providing easy access to the highlights of the Lake District.

Nearby Staveley in easy walking distance, is the gateway to the Kentmere Valley, with a thriving community of walkers and cyclists as well as a foodie destination: Wilf’s café, Hawkshead Brewery.


Bakery and lots of other delights including the Eagle & Child, another great pub.

Walking routes in the Kentmere Valley are well worth exploring.

Shops, facilities, cafes and restaurants are close at hand in Windermere village, along with the superb Booths supermarket, and only a few miles further you'll find Bowness and the shores of Lake Windermere.
