  • "We have two holidays a year at Magistrates Court."

    It's such a lovely place to stay with easy access to the lakes and Yorkshire. Fiona and Phil are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Excellent accommodation, comfortable and well equipped

    It’s a beautiful property and Ingleton was the perfect base. Fiona couldn’t have been more helpful. We are booking again for next year. Would definitely recommend

  • "I loved staying at Fiona's place!"

    The location is perfect - no more than 5 minutes (with a 3 year old walker) from the shops and pubs. And about 10-15 mins to the waterfall trail. It is also about 10 mins walk to the bus station (which we used every day since I am not a driver). The apartment is nicely decorated. It feels like being in a boutique hotel. In cold months, the apartment gets warm really quickly. I loved the view from the kitchen and sitting in comfortable sofas in the evenings. The shower worked great, too. Fiona, the owner, is such a great host. I loved the welcome pack she got ready for us. It was more appreciated since my children and I arrived very late after a 4 hour delay. I wouldn't get a chance to go to shops that late. Fiona also helped me with the online grocery delivery that I had missed. She also invited me to see her current project up the stairs - very exciting! I really loved staying at the cottage and communicating with Fiona. Thank you very much and I hope to visit soon again.

    It is close to village facilities, spectacular countryside views but also a short distance to the West coast, Morecambe Bay and the Southern Lake District . It is sited on a busy road with heavy traffic from early hours but this did not detract from our enjoyment. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

    Home from home. Nice touches from the owner who left tea coffee biscuits bread milk butter plus all cleaning materials. Very handy for pubs and restaurants etc. Great views from the rear window. A nice little seating outside to enjoy wine in the evening, if the weather permits. Only observation is that the bath needs either replacing or installing a walk in shower. Would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful week at Magistrates Chambers."

    The property was beautifully presented with everything we could need, and fantastic views as a bonus. Ingleton provided a good range of facilities, and lovely walks from the doorstep. The only negative was some confusion on arrival - Sykes directions for parking/ key collection were unclear, and although detailed instructions are apparently sent separately by the very helpful owner these had been misdirected so we didn't get them! That aside, a fabulous place to stay and highly recommended.

    The accomodation was way above our expectations, such a stunning building inside and out.The parking space in front of the The Old Court house building was like gold dust. Inside we had everything you could need for a relaxing stay and the decor and little additions here and there made it special. Even better was the Wheatsheaf pub was only a 5 min walk away and the rest of Ingleton inluding the spectacular falls was about 10 mins walk. We managed to do the Ingleborough nature walk & Cave, Ingleton Falls, RSPB Leighton Moss and Fell end reserves. Dont forget to try the Seasons bakery just nearby in walking distance too.

  • "The house was beautifully furnished and very clean."

    The Christmas decorations and welcome hamper were lovely details. However there were a number of things we were disappointed with. We couldn’t get any hot water for a hot shower during our stay. I believe there is a technique to it but we couldn’t make it work (we were able to get hot water for the bath though). The internet was also very patchy and kept cutting out during movies. We also ran out of firewood after the first night and were told we had to restock ourselves. There was none left in the local coop and we had to do a 40 min round trip to find some more. One of these factors wouldn’t have been a big problem, but all combined, we left feeling disappointed and like we had been quite overcharged for our stay. We do not feel the price charged was appropriate for the property.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this unique property which has been nicely converted into a holiday let."

    Road noise mentioned by others wasn't actually that bad and it is something I would normally be sensitive to. Ear plugs are provided but I didn't feel the need to use them as the noise of the occasional passing vehicle after 6am wasn't that intrusive. We also had no issues with the cockerel, never heard it at all. Probably due to covid, cushions weren't provided on the sofas so this meant that they perhaps weren't as comfortable as they could have been. Also the bed in the double room was too soft for me and the mattress had some 'roll together', so that did impact on the quality of my sleep. The kitchen has limited storage and workspace, but the room overall looks lovely and is well equipped. Whilst sitting at the table for meals the view was wonderful. The heating and hot water were great, and simple enough to use. Decent water pressure in the shower, and the sinks in the two bedrooms are a thoughful addition as it meant the main bathroom use was kept to just toilet and shower visits. The place was spotlessly clean and quality linen and towels were provided. We'd love to stay again at some point as the cottage is in a great location for waking into the centre of Ingleton and driving to many nearby places of interest.

Only points that could really improve it would be the internet connection (we found it patchy and for wet weather days with a toddler especially it can be handy to be able to stream Disney+ or YouTube). Only other “nice to have” item would be a small dishwasher but that is because I am lazy and don’t want to do dishes when on holiday! We hope to come back and hire both “Magistrates Chambers” and “The Cells” so that parents can also come with. Thanks for a lovely and much needed break! Anyone visiting, do not neglect to go to the bakery down the road, best sourdough bread as well as many other treats both sweet and savoury.

    We didnt think it would be that nice! Super cosy and an added bonus of it being decorated for Christmas. The beds were really comfortable, we were in bed early every night! It really Is a 3 minute walk down the road to the centre of the town to pick up supplies or have a drink. We found the Old Post Office was our favourite and then the Masons on the road near the coop petrol station was super friendly and a great selection of yummy food. We did the Ingleton waterfalls which I would recommend if you are able to walk over rugged terrain. Only very minor draw back was there weren't enough cleaning products / facilities supplied. As we were staying for a week with a 2 year old it really would have helped having a washing machine and I also would have liked to have been able to clean around the fireplace better as it was a battle trying to keep the bits off the wood, ash etc. contained. Other than that we would stay again and would definitely recommend for people to stay there. Excited to see how the upstairs will turn out once they have finished renovating!
