New Ing Lodge
New Ing Lodge is positioned in Shap, on Wainwright's and the Westmorland Way, and are easily accessible for the Eastern Fells of the Lake District,
We are easily accessible to the East Lakes - the Eden Valley, Hawes Water, Ullswater, High Street, Askham Fell, as well as the less-visited Howgill fells and the west Pennines. It is a short 15 minute drive to Penrith, and 25 minutes to Kendal. Other areas of the National Park are accessible with a short drive also.
The Wainwright Coast to Coast walk passes directly past the Lodge as does the Westmorland Way. We are an excellent base for the night!
We offer a range of activities from our Lodge. We provide maps and details for walkers (and even a guide if you want it), mountain bikes for hire (with a special rate for residents), and an orienteering course outside our back door. We also can arrange kayaking, climbing and wilderness camping and bushcraft skills courses if you want.
There is so much to do at New Ing it is ideal for a family break.
We provide an excellent breakfast - good healthy porridge, with an option of a full English breakfast, a vegetarian breakfast, or a continental style and we also do evening meals and packed lunches by request.
Just 4 of the local attractions within easy reach from New Ing Lodge are-
Kidsty Pike and the High Street Roman Road. This is a magnificent day's walk. In good weather it will take you between 5 and 7 hours at a relaxed pace.
Shap Abbey. The Abbey stands in a picturesque setting by the River Lowther, with nothing nearby to interrupt the beauty of the lonely and unfrequented site.
It was built in 1199. Most of the buildings are 13th Century in origin, though the striking west tower is early 16th Century.
Rheged Discovery Centre. Cumbria's leading tourist attraction is ideal for a wet day, or a half day's break from activity. It is a 15 minute drive away, and offers excellent cafes and shops, as well as 4 films on the giant IMAX screen, and hosts the National Mountain Centre Exhibition.
Haweswater is a short drive from New Ing Lodge. It is a fantastic spot for a drive, bike ride, or walk. In fact, it can be the base for several walks and bike rides. As ever with the Lake District, there are several pubs and cafes in which to spend a relaxed lunchtime, or to enjoy a drink in the early evening. All are family friendly.
