This fabulous Troutbeck holiday let property enjoys the scenic surroundings of the Troutbeck Valley, which lies between Windermere and Ambleside village. To the north via the dramatic Kirkstone Pass road is picturesque Ullswater.

The Troutbeck Valley is popular with walkers, photographers and those who love to do nothing but admire the scenery! There are a number of walks to enjoy in the area, ranging from a leisurely stroll around Brotherswater to an exciting trek on the Wansfell Ridge.

Whatever you get up to, you'll be tempted by a meal or a pint of real Lakeland ale at the Mortal Man Inn in Troutbeck - One of the best country pubs in the Lake District.

Despite the air of seclusion, you only need travel a few miles to reach Windermere - with shops, Booths supermarket, cafes and restaurants on offer.

There are plenty of family attractions only a few miles further away in Bowness village, including the World of Beatrix Potter attraction, lake shore mini golf, cinema, the 'Old Laundry Theatre' and Windermere Golf Club.

Follow the A591 north and you'll reach Ambleside on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. This cosmopolitan village is great for shopping, offers several acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as The Glass House, and also offers Windermere Lake Cruises from Waterhead Pier. Continue on the A591 to Rydal Water and historic Grasmere. It couldn't be easier to explore!

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.
