Location
This fantastic self-catering property in the Troutbeck Valley takes a great location for a large group holiday in the Lake District. With space for entertaining at home, you'll find a wealth of famous Lake District walks on your doorstep and the vibrant villages of Windermere and Ambleside (on the shores of Lake Windermere) only a very short drive away.
The Troutbeck Valley lies between Ambleside and Windmere, at the start of the dramatic Kirkstone Pass road, which eventually leads to Ullswater. The valley is known for its peaceful atmosphere, where the tourism is hardly noticeable and only a scattering of traditional Lakeland cottages make up Troutbeck. The village has a small shop, a lovely church and a few excellent country pubs to choose from - don't miss a meal at The Mortal Man or The Queen's Head, two of the most acclaimed Lake District pub restaurants.

In nearby Windermere village you'll find an excellent Booths supermarket, a range of local shops and several cafes and restaurants to choose from. Drive on a couple of miles to Bowness village, and you'll find even more. The bustling village boasts plenty of family attractions, such as the World of Beatrix Potter, hire boats on the lake, mini golf on 'The Glebe' and of course the Windermere Lake steamers. There's the Royalty Cinema and the Old Laundry Theatre for rainy day entertainment, and Windermere Golf Club is just a short drive out of Bowness village.
The same distance to your west is Ambleside, on Lake Windermere's northern shores. The village is a must during your stay and offers plenty more in the way of acclaimed Lake District restaurants and tempting local food. Stock up at Lucy's of Ambleside (a wonderful delicatessen) or treat family or friends to a meal at the famous 'Glass House' restaurant. Windermere Lake Cruises also depart from Ambleside's Waterhead Pier.

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.
