The property

Applethwaite Cottage is a superb contemporary Lakeland Cottage set in the pretty conservation village of Troutbeck, renowned for its numerous listed buildings and vernacular architecture and the strong and vibrant village community with a village shop and excellent local pubs and with beautiful views across the valley to the fells beyond, walks direct from the door and Lake Windermere just a short drive away. With a large bay window looking across the beautiful Troutbeck Valley and fabulous Clear View wood-burning stove, Applethwaite Cottage provides the perfect haven to relax and unwind. The endlessly changing view is a delight whatever the time of year and from the patio you can sit and admire the stunning Lakeland scenery. Originally part of a larger Victorian property this cottage has been tastefully refurbished to a high standard. The cottage offers a spacious and social living space and offers a great space to spend time with friends. The matching bedrooms, with vaulted ceilings provide a cosy and comfortable retreat at the end of the day. == Accommodation in detail With outstanding views down the fell, outdoor garden furniture and barbeque area. You will find a private parking space is adjacent to the patio area. On entering the cottage you are greeted by the large open plan living space with oak floors throughout and that lovely wood-burning stove. The kitchen is well equipped and offers all you may need.

Upstairs, the cosy king size master bedroom is complete with open beams and a contemporary ensuite shower room with shower, basin and WC. The second bedroom offers a comfortable double bed and compliments the master bedroom. A modern family bathroom includes bath with overhead shower, basin and WC. Location A romantic cottage in the Troutbeck Valley provides a Lake District holiday experience like no other. Still only a short drive from shops and restaurants in Windermere village, Lake Windermere itself and the vibrant lake shore communities of Bowness and Ambleside, the Troutbeck Valley is a peaceful haven away from the rush. Spectacular Lakeland fells surround this lush valley; scattered with historic Lakeland houses and pretty woodlands, and blessed the Mortal Man in Troutbeck village, renowned for their excellent food, Cumbrian produce and cosy fireside ambience. Perfect for a special occasion. Another nearby pub is The Queens Head Inn; choice within walking distance. There is a local Village shop/cafe offering basic necessities but also delicious lunches and cakes. This is somewhere guests will want to return to, time and time again. There are endless opportunities for romantic Lake District walks from your doorstep. Taking the car over Kirkstone Pass towards Ullswater, you'll pass Brothers Water - one of our favourite spots for a leisurely Sunday stroll. For exploring further afield, despite the blissfully secluded feel of the Troutbeck Valley, you're never too far from the main linking roads throughout the Lake District.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
