Description

Troutbeck 0.5 miles. For those looking for a Lakeland holiday with friends or family, this lovely stone-built farmhouse will be sure to impress. Set against the spectacular backdrop of Blencathra, this impressive Troutbeck cottage is on a working livestock farm just half a mile from the tiny hamlet of Troutbeck and just a ten minute drive from the shores of Ullswater. One of our premier Lake District cottages, this Troutbeck cottage offers accommodation of real character and charm, with contemporary styling combined with a more traditional atmosphere to provide a first class holiday home. This Lake District cottage features a spacious sitting room with old oak beams and a warming woodburning stove, a dining room, a snug with a woodburning stove, a modern well-equipped kitchen and four beautiful bedrooms all with delightful en-suite facilities, all with baths and one with a bath and power shower over it. Outside, there is a mature garden, ideal for sitting out after a long day on the nearby fells, and not forgetting of course the local tavern, a former railway hotel, which is a short walk and welcomes visitors with cask ales and traditional bar food. With Ullswater a short drive away from this superb Lake District cottage, guests can take in the beauty of the lake by embarking on a cruise on one of the Ullswater steamers. The pretty village of Glenridding is also a popular destination, with many charming tea rooms and cafes. For the more experienced mountaineer, Helvellyn, the third highest mountain in England, is close to hand and of course, the notorious Striding Edge - not for the faint-hearted! Rheged visitor centre is also close by, which regularly holds art exhibitions and hosts special events. A twenty minute drive away is the bustling town of Keswick, situated on the shores of Derwentwater. This Troutbeck cottage is perfect to get away from it all, together!
Troutbeck near Penrith is a small hamlet with a scattering of buildings and farms, and a local inn. The hamlet lies within easy reach of Penrith, Keswick and beautiful Ullswater. It is also well placed for Scafell Pike, Striding Edge, Rheged Visitor Centre and the rest of the lovely Lake District.

‘Gill Head Farm in general, is absolutely amazing - a beautiful and well-maintained building. The cottage is situated on a farm with views to the open countryside. It was attractive and clean and very spacious for the 7 of us. The beds were comfy and there was plenty of hot water for everyone. There was plenty of room for all of us and we never felt that we were on top of each other. In the day we visited the nearby lake and then hiked around the area, both a 15 minute drive away. The grounds of Gill Head Farm are gorgeous. We cooked for ourselves every day and the cottage was large enough that we could all sit and eat together. The owner was very welcoming and was a great host, we hope to return in the near future.’

‘A fantastic holiday property. Massive for just the two of us that stayed there but would be a great location for families who wanted to explore what the Lake District has to offer. Ideally located between Keswick and Penrith. Will definitely be returning with more people. It was also great to be on a working farm and see all the animals.’

‘What a wonderful week. Everyone at the farm made us welcome and they went out of their way to make our holiday a great one. Fantastic setting, comfy beds, plenty of room and well equipped. A hidden gem of a place that needs no 'tinkering' as it would loose its charm. Central to most tourist attractions and east access to the motorway.’

‘We received a lovely welcome and we knew we could always get the owners help if needed despite being a busy farm and campsite. The home was lovely, it had lots of character and rustic yet the facilities that make it a comfortable home. We loved being in the countryside, it was quiet yet not too far from nearby towns, markets and superstores. If you love to walk and be outside you are near some of the loveliest scenery and views in the Lake District. If you like farmyard animals you have them right on your doorstep. We loved being on a working farm and near to places of interest. We found the kitchen to be quite small and it was a bit inconvenient to have to use the paid for laundry facilities for the campsite rather than having facilities in the home. This however would not put us off staying again.’

‘The house was amazing and we are hoping to go back again soon. We had a wide range of ages in our party there and it was perfect. Can't wait to go back. The owners were so helpful. A great place to get away from the stress for everyone and go walking or just play in the river.’

‘The property was cosy and decorated beautifully with tasteful Christmas decorations. Was really welcoming and would love to go there again. Very highly recommended particularly for wintery nights after long walks.’
