Lake District cottage, ‘gold awarded’ opulence in the picturesque hamlet of Troutbeck, circumscribed by glorious open countryside and with breath-taking views in every direction. The Curious Orange is quite simply a luxurious and quirky romantic bolt hole in a sublime spot. The sophisticated and seductive interior is warmed by a traditional woodburing stove, furnished for relaxation and finished with true flair.
This eclectic and inspired cottage does of course have a name matching the intriguing design and finish; a pretty patio garden with views to die for, the relaxing living space by the fire, a 'style over substance' designer kitchen, the romantic bedroom with separate dressing room, and the luxurious slate bathroom with ceiling raindrop shower, waterfall tap into the designer bath and magical twinkling Zodiac signed coloured lighting.
Outside the patio garden provides the ideal spot for morning coffee, or a glass or two before dinner! You are surrounded by fabulous walking territory and only 450 yards away from an excellent pub serving hearty meals and local ale, within easy reach of a well-stocked shop and never too far from the stunning shores of Lake Windermere. Perfect!

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 with several acclaimed Lake District country pubs. One of which is literally a healthy stone's throw from your cottage, the Mortal Man in Troutbeck village isrenowned for their excellent food, Cumbrian produce and cosy fireside ambience. Perfect for a special occasion.
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.
