  • "We had another wonderful holiday in Butt Hill Cottage - leaving just hours before the snow arrived."

    Thank you for the lovely welcome pack. It was a lovely warm welcome to have the heating on for our arrival, as well as the Christmas tree being up! However there was no cafeteria this time, or slow pot or DVD player - all of which have been there previously. The knob to the wardrobe door in the twin bedroom came off and needs re-gluing! All minor points but the owners should be aware.

    Very well equipped, looks good on the pictures, but is even better in real, 2 pubs nearby - reservation may be necessary for dinner, (unfortunately the Kirkstone Pass was closed, requiring some long deviations for our fell bagging plan)

  • "We loved it."

    ......the positives: dog friendly, the location, the view, the character of the cottage (fireplace, flagstone flooring in the w/c, beams and wooden windows), the outside garden/seating area and the car port. The 'not great but still OK' is that there are a few things that need updating/fixing i.e. the stain/ leak (ceiling near to the entrance), a number of window handles (lose), stain on the carpet (assumed from leak), TV - a number of pixels are broken leaving a line through the screen......all very minor and perfectly bearable but stops us giving a 10 out of 10..... certainly deserves a very good 8 out of 10.

  • "Ideally located in quiet Lakeland village with two good pubs within 5 minutes walk, but not too far from Windermere and Ambleside for supplies."

    We have rented this cottage annually for the past 20 years, which speaks for itself. It is always spotlessly clean and kept to a high standard of maintenance, and indeed refurbishment when necessary. Nice to see that the old post office in the village has re-opened as a cafe for a snack and a coffee within a nice 20 minute walk. Ideal for (now) aged walkers.

    It was very clean and well equipped with walks to & from the cottage. I would certainly recommend this cottage.

  • "Amazing views and location."

    The cottage is lovely and comfortable although a little tired, a little more attention could be paid to the cleaning of the cooker extraction fan also frying pans had to be washed before we could use them as all very greasy. The garden isn't very dog friendly but ok if you keep them on a lead. This is the 1st property we have had without a welcome pack so very surprised that we had to go and find somewhere open to buy milk when we arrived. We really enjoyed our holiday and felt very much at home. We would definitely book it again.

    Thank you for your comments, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We take all comments on board. As the cottage is self catering, properties do not always provide a welcome pack. We hope to welcome you back again. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team. Property Owner

  • "Just back from a wonderful week at Butt Hill Cottage."

    Amazing views. Clean and very warm house. Great walks on your doorstep but also a great base for exploring the Lakes. Very near two brilliant and welcoming pubs. Unfortunately the washing machine wasn’t working (not ideal in January). Although stated as dog friendly we feel it should be made clearer that it is a shared garden with next door and without a gate your dog will have to be monitored whenever let outside. A few logs to start a fire on the first night would have been appreciated to prevent getting back in the car again after a long journey. Overall though a great place and would definitely recommended, sitting watching the deer with a coffee in the morning was magical. Many thanks.

    Thank you for your valued feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Butt Hill Cottage. We will pass your additional comments onto our Maintenance teams. We hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

    There has however been some changes, the old rocking chair has been replaced, and roller blinds on the bedroom windows. We will continue to come back, as like I have said it it a lovely cottage in a beautiful position.

    The only negative is the mattress on the bed is very budget and firm with no give whatsoever. You wake up in the night with limbs aching as they are very low quality and hard.

    There is plenty of walking straight from the door; we had a full day up onto High Street with the return along the ridge, and towards the end of the week we headed over to Scafell Pike - still with clear blue skies and amazing views. The cottage is lovely with lots of space, and only 5 minutes walk to either of the two pubs.

    This was our eighteenth visit to this particular cottage which speaks for itself. It has always been kept to a very high standard and the location is perfect for our needs. A beautiful peaceful Lakeland village, but not too far from all local amenities. Great for walking with two good pubs within 5 minutes walk for food and drink.

About the location

TROUTBECK

Windermere 3 miles; Ambleside 4 miles.

The small Lakeland village of Troutbeck can be found between its more famous neighbours Windermere and Ambleside, close by the Kirkstone Pass. A mixture of houses, cottages and farms, the village is scattered along a narrow lane bordered by a drystone wall. Many of these buildings date back to the 17th Century with features such as mullioned windows and heavy cylindrical chimneys and the northern end boasts its own 17th century inn. Close by, the bustling towns of Windermere and Ambleside are popular with visitors, providing a range of amenities to suit all tastes. Lake Windermere offers boat trips, including the lakeside ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park. The ‘Windermere Steamboat Museum’ displays a fascinating collection of boats whilst children will enjoy the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ in Bowness, where technology brings her characters to life. Within easy reach of destinations such as Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick and the Lakeland Mountains, Troutbeck is ideally situated for exploring all that the region has to offer.

The garden for Butt Hill extends only from the rear of the car port and to the left.
