A holiday in a Troutbeck cottage promises the perfect
ingredients for a truly relaxing break in the Lake District
The village links a string of small hamlets along a beautiful
valley, midway between Windermere and Ambleside off the Kirkstone
Pass. A Conservation Area, the atmosphere is sleepy, almost
old-fashioned and many of the cottages and buildings boast charming
architectural features like mullioned windows, cylindrical chimneys
and exposed spinning galleries. Now in the hands of the National
Trust, Troutbeck Park Farm was once the home of Beatrix Potter,
where she bred flocks of Herdwick sheep.
One of the village's oldest properties, Townend House, is
also protected by the Trust - a splendid 17th Century Yeoman's
house, with stone mullioned windows, carved oak panelling and stone
flagged floors. Another interesting old building is Jesus Church,
renowned for its pre-Raphaelite, stained glass windows.
Park up your car and head out on foot, bike or horse along miles
of footpaths and bridleways weaving through the valley. Try the
Troutbeck Circuit, the Kentmere Round; look out for Lake Windermere
occasionally on the horizon. And don't miss the Kirkstone Pass
for amazing views across to Patterdale, Glenridding and Ullswater.
Choose from one of the fine dining gastro-pubs or enjoy a cosy
night's supper sampling delicacies from the well-stocked
village shop. And if you time your stay around Shrove Tuesday,
enjoy food and fun at Troutbeck's annual Pancake Races!
Rest assured, when you book a Troutbeck cottage, you'll
discover one of the quietest, prettiest spots in the Lake District.
