    “We love Robin Cottage and have stayed many times.”

    Can’t give the higher ratings this time, as the heating was off when we arrived, dead flies all over the landing and several weeks post on the floor. The original cleaning was very good, but that was obviously a few weeks ago and nobody had been back before we arrived.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear your comments regarding cleanliness and no heating at the cottage. I have spoken to Lakelovers and they will look into the heating issue as soon as possible. I have also passed your comments onto the housekeeping team to address your concerns. As the cottage hadn't been in use due to lockdown in November this may have caused the issues you encountered. I hope this doesn't deter you from revisiting Robin Cottage and hope to see you again in the near future. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Owner relations

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.
