About this place

Ings Kippers Campsite & Shepherd's Hut has 9 pitches for small tents in flat terraced plots amongst Christmas trees on the side of a steep hill, but campers are rewarded with wonderful views, toilets and showers, free BT Guest wifi, firepits and communal washing up facilities. We can charge phones for you, sell you logs and kindling for your firepit and freeze ice blocks. It's an adults only site and we can't accommodate dogs no matter how cute they are because we have livestock nearby.

We say 'small tents' because the pitches are physically small and only a few of them can accommodate tents greater than 4.5 metres long, and a few are smaller than that. If you can stand up in your tent, then you should check the specification. If it's 5 plus persons, then it probably won't fit. Smaller tents are better because you also have more outdoor living space around the tent and can safely have a firepit.

There is limited parking (one car per pitch maximum and we welcome backpackers and cyclists) and you walk your gear a short distance up our hill to your pitch. Pitches aren't pre-allocated unless there are special circumstances and you have a choice of the pitches which are vacant when you arrive.

The site is ideally located for walkers and cyclists: the Dales Way is very close in nearby Staveley and the National Cycle Network passes our gate. For less energetic campers, the Central Lakes bus route, (no.555), can be accessed from a bus stop 400 yards away.

Nearby attractions include the new Cafe Ambio (50 yards), the Watermill Inn & Brewery (400yards), the Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley (2 miles east), the Handsome Brewery in Bowston on the Dales Way by the River Kent (5 miles east), the magnificent and historic market town of Kendal (7 miles east) and, of course, Windermere (3 miles west).
