    Hi Andrew. Glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your considered comments. Regarding the wood store in our experience it would be difficult to manage effectively, however there are many places in the local area where additional wood can be purchased. As you will know we always provide a starter basket of wood on guest arrival. Hopefully see you in person for your next visit! Rob & Rachel Property Owner

Wind along the peaceful Troutbeck Valley, which sits mid-way between the vibrant holiday towns of Windermere and Ambleside, and you take in panoramic views as you approach your holiday home. A patchwork of pretty craggy hilltops, spectacular fells and some of the finest English greenery, all marked-out by our beloved, distinctive Lake District stone walls and dotted with grey Herdwick sheep.

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.

No Babies or Children under 12 welcome.
