Lovely cottage in Ingleton, right near the pub and close to Ingleton Falls. Spotlessly clean with all amenities EXCEPT a washing machine which would have been handy, but no big deal. Only other downside was downstairs toilet. Rained a lot while we were there but you cant change the weather! Ingleton is a lovely village with all amenities. Ingleton Falls was spectacular. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
My wife booked the cottage after we had failed to find decent flights for our planned trip to Rome, so I started from the viewpoint of it being a consolation prize.
How wrong could I have been?
It is clear the cottage has been built and finished to a standard, rather than down to a price. The quality of the building, decor, furniture etc., stands out from the off. The thoughtful little touches are obvious all the way through one's visit. It really did feel like being a house guest with a friend or a favoured family member, rather than being just more paying punters.
As well as being in a quiet spot, the location is perfect, lying within five minutes' walk of two of the village's pubs (the other two are more like ten to fifteen minutes and both worth visiting). The three best places for breakfast (Bernies, Inglesport and my personal winner despite having no WiFi, The Coffee Pot) are at a similar distance.
One of the finest eateries I've ever been to (La Cascada) is only a few tens of yards away and a pretty serviceable Bistro/pizza house (La Tavernetta) is only a minute or two further on.
The Masons Arms does itself no harm with its selection of food plus its range of gins!
If you want a tramp about, there are plenty of options, including the quite pleasant Waterfalls Trail.
All in all, we've had a magnificent week and we've left with our batteries fully recharged and we would recommend this cottage to anybody. My only regret is that I didn't get to try the Old Post Office or M's Spice - but there's only so much one can eat in four nights!
Set in the centre of Ingleton, with shops, takeaways, restaurants and pubs on the doorstep. As other reviewers have stated; this cottage has everything and is immaculately clean. We particularly liked the underfloor heating, making it feel so cosy and welcoming as soon as we stepped through the door. Pretty much home from home.
There is reserved parking on the street as well as a space at the back of the cottage.
The Waterfall Trail is only a few minutes walk away; the White Scar Caves and the Three Peaks are within easy reach by car.
