Cosy Family Retreat, Troutbeck

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!

Location

A detached Lakeland farmhouse and barn 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 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. 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.

LocationCumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
