The farmhouse is a 17th century detached property exuding character which effortlessly mixes with its 21st century indulgences; ecologically warmed throughout and sleeping up to 8. Luxuriously furnished for relaxation and completed with true flair, creating the perfect holiday home for the Lakes in this sublime setting. The interior, although oozing character, is designed and executed to the highest standard.
The beautiful garden has quite the reputation locally and is full of colour all year round with some wonderful vantage points commanding spectacular views. On the ground floor are essentially three reception rooms, the living room with plethora of oak beams and warming wood burner set in an inglenook fireplace, a second sitting room surrounded by oak panelling and even a Spice cupboard dating 1694, the farmhouse yet designer kitchen / dining room and a day room / conservatory leading into the garden - bliss.
There is a luxurious monsoon shower room at this level which also serves a king size bedroom, with its own staircase. An oak staircase takes to you the first floor where the views get even better and here there are three further spacious bedrooms, two king size and one double together with two further bathrooms and access to the garden. You are surrounded by fabulous walking territory with a footpath directly from the property onto Wansfell.
The picturesque conservation village of Troutbeck is renowned for its numerous listed buildings and vernacular architecture and there is a strong and vibrant community with a village shop and tea room, visiting post office service, church and an excellent pub serving hearty meals and local ales. A few minutes down the road from Troutbeck brings you to the stunning shores of Lake Windermere. Perfect!

Still only a short drive from shops and restaurants in Windermere village, Lake Windermere itself and the vibrant lake shore communities of Ambleside and Bowness, 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. The Mortal Man in Troutbeck village is renowned for its excellent food and local ales, Cumbrian produce and cosy fireside ambience.
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.
