Camping is at the back of New Ing Lodge, on the lawn and up into the field beyond. We have installed a new toilet/shower block in the old stables and have a wash basin for pots and pans.
We also do evening meals cooked by the Pub Pie Champion of the UK 2011 and from local produce and we take orders up tp 6:30pm. We also do breakfasts from £4 with a wide array of local ingredients as we like things local!
All the hotwater for the showers comes from BioMass produce to reduce our carbon footprint, and we also have recycling on site for those who want to give it a go!

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

We are fortunate to be located on the Edge of the beautiful Lake District National Park and very close to the Howgills and the Pennine Fells. The Lake District is the country's biggest adventure playground with something to do for everyone no matter how energetic, or not as the case may be!
We have walking right on our frontdoor and a small drive away would lead you into the lake district national park where there are plenty of walks.
Mountain biking is a great activity and there is Whinlatter forest at Keswick (about 35 minutes away) where you can hire bikes and go out for the day!
Climbing is in abundance in the area, or if the weather turns then you could always try your hand at the uk's largest indoor wall at Kendal Climbing Wall.
As you may have guest we like our food and theres nowhere better than the lakes grub we can recommend lots of places to eat from one of the last remaining water powered mill yards to boutique chocolate factories.
