New Ing Lodge


We are right on the path of the Coast to Coast Walking Route. So why not take advantage of some warmth, comfort, and a hot cooked meal after a day on the fells! 

Shap on the Coast to Coast

The Coast to Coast Walk is a 192-mile (309 km) unofficial and mostly unsignposted long distance footpath in the North of England.

Devised by Alfred Wainwright, it passes right through Shap and three contrasting National Parks including the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North York Moors.

Shap is located about 1/3 of the way on the route (approximately day 4/5) and as the first port of call in the village, The New Ing Lodge is a welcome haven for the weary walker.

Here’s how to find your way for the last couple of miles on your day to Shap from west, a little help for a tired walker:

How can we help

We offer accommodation in our 11 bedroom and 11 bathroom lodge for bed and breakfast as well as hostel guests. We also welcome campers. We have a bar with local beers on tap and a comfortable lounge with a roaring fire.

We usually serve breakfast from 7 am until 8.30 am and offer a full English, full vegetarian, green eggs as well as salmon, avocado and egg on toast.
We also offer packed lunches which can be ordered the night before.

We take walk-ins as well as pre-bookings, however, during peak times, New Ing Lodge becomes extremely busy as more and more people take on this amazing route, so it would be advisable to call and book ahead. You can view live availability on our BOOK NOW page.

We have collected frequently asked questions on New Ing Lodge and our facilities. Have a look at them HERE.
