The property

Troutbeck 0.6 miles.

This extremely comfortable, detached Cumbrian lodge, boasting its very own hot tub, is situated on the well-established Limefitt Park in the Troutbeck Valley, close to Windermere and Ullswater in The Lake District.

Just a few miles from Lake Windermere, this fabulous lodge is perfect for families or groups of friends who wish to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and discover this beautiful valley.

This superb Lake District lodge has three bedrooms, including one with en-suite facilities, and a separate family bathroom.

There is an open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, a family dining area, and a comfortable sitting area where, after a day spent exploring the area, you can relax with a refreshing drink by the warming electric fire and try and catch a glimpse of the local wildlife, including deer, badgers, and a host of birds!

Patio doors lead out onto a large decked area where you can sit and enjoy alfresco dining, take a dip in the hot tub, and admire the stunning scenery across the Troutbeck Valley towards Windermere.

With excellent on-site facilities including a pub serving food and a selection of real ale, an outdoor games area, and pony trekking, this superb location has something for every member of the family.

The bustling town centres of Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside are less than four miles away, and set in the Troutbeck Valley, there are lots of footpaths leading right from the doorstep of this Lake District lodge!

Why not take an evening stroll to the village pub for a drink, and enjoy this beautiful location from a different perspective?

The visitor centre at Brockhole, on the shores of Lake Windermere, is the perfect destination for a family day out with a tree top adventure course for the children, and charming gardens set along the lake shore.

This superb lodge is also ideally placed to explore the Kirkstone Pass which leads into Ullswater, and the lakeside villages of Glenridding and Pooley Bridge, with Aira Falls, a great place to stop off for a picnic.

This wonderful Troutbeck lodge is a superb base at any time of the year.

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.
