We are a 4 star guest accommodation and have been awarded a Silver Award by Visit Britain for providing exceptional quality in all areas but in particular in service and hospitality. The traditionally-built Lakeland-stone house, built in the early 1800’s as a gentleman's residence, sits in a magnificent topiary garden featured in “English Topiary Gardens” by Ethane Clarke and George Wright, backed by a stream and overlooking the indigenous country side. The atmosphere is relaxed and tranquil.Ings Village is also the home of the Watermill Inn, CAMRA award winning pub with a national reputation for good food and real ales. With this in mind we only offer B&B.

"Rear facing rooms may be quieter than those at the front."
"We stayed in the Iris room and can highly recommend"
"The small double has the bed against the wall on one side, therefore perhaps request a different one if mobility is not great"
"I would think that all rooms are good, ours was room 4 (Iris room)"
"dont book the 'small double' unless your on your own"
