    “Haystacks is a lovely property in a very peaceful location with fantastic views in every direction.”

    Perfect to explore the wider area or relax and enjoy scenic walks from the door step. The furnishings are of a high quality, we were very comfortable during our stay. The information sent by the owners prior to arrival was very useful. We will definitely look to return.

The property

Haystacks is quite simply a gorgeous eclectic Lakeland find occupying a picture postcard outstanding setting with breath-taking panoramic views towards Lake Windermere. For a holiday with 'wow factor' this is a special place and one to spend your precious time together soaking up Lakelands luxuries - step into the impressive living spaces and catch your breath as you gaze through bi-folding walls of glass at the views; we describe the balconies as infinity balconies and you will see exactly what we mean - what a place to unwind. This luxurious escape is furnished for relaxation, designed with your every comfort in mind, embrace the vibrant contemporary, sophisticated and rustic interior, unwind on the glass balconies and soak up the view, cuddle up on the custom made soft furnishings by the warming woodburner, cook up a storm in the sublime kitchen and after a day on the fells or after a night in the local pub, have a soak in one of the two invigorating luxury bathrooms and fall into one of the sumptuous beds - bliss! Haystacks was given its name for several reasons but mostly because it's striking in every way possible! Forming a scenic and select section of this Lakeland residence. Outside the patio provides the ideal spot for morning coffee, or of course one of the glass balconies for a glass or two before dinner! You are surrounded by fabulous walking territory and only 4 mins walk away from two excellent pubs serving hearty meals and real ales, within easy reach of a well-stocked local shop and never too far from the stunning shores of Lake Windermere. Perfect!

This central position affords Haystacks a feeling of elevation and privacy with stunning views to the surrounding fells and lake. The split level accommodation adds to the charm of the property which offers modern style and convenience yet some very traditional features.

About the location


Windermere 3 miles; Ambleside 4 miles.

The small Lakeland village of Troutbeck can be found between its more famous neighbours Windermere and Ambleside, close by the Kirkstone Pass. A mixture of houses, cottages and farms, the village is scattered along a narrow lane bordered by a drystone wall. Many of these buildings date back to the 17th Century with features such as mullioned windows and heavy cylindrical chimneys and the northern end boasts its own 17th century inn. Close by, the bustling towns of Windermere and Ambleside are popular with visitors, providing a range of amenities to suit all tastes. Lake Windermere offers boat trips, including the lakeside ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park. The ‘Windermere Steamboat Museum’ displays a fascinating collection of boats whilst children will enjoy the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ in Bowness, where technology brings her characters to life. Within easy reach of destinations such as Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick and the Lakeland Mountains, Troutbeck is ideally situated for exploring all that the region has to offer.
