  • "We absolutely loved The Old Coach House."

    We wanted a property with lots of space and that is what we got!. If anything the photographs on the website don't do the property justice and that's a rare thing. Minor issue with heating/hot water fixed very promptly.

  • "TOCH was a fabulous property."

    Great location and the garden was perfect for our dog. The house was spotlessly clean (thanks to Jose). The facilities were good, beds super comfortable, but remember to take your own t-towels and bath sheets, if needed) The WiFi was good in most of the house. Overall, a place we would definitely book again,

  • "What a wonderful, family holiday and a fantastic property."

    The Old Coach House was absolutely perfect for us (6 adults, 2 children, an infant and a dog!) - so spacious, well equipped, cosy and homely. A beautiful family home in a fantastic location. We stayed during the week of all the snow in Cumbria and got snowed in which we found great fun, making snowmen with the children. There was a brief power outage due to the snow one evening, but the owner rang within a couple of minutes to reassure us and point us in the direction of things we needed eg candles, extra blankets. I can’t praise this property enough!

  • "A lovely house, with large rooms and a great decor."

    The only instructions were generic ones from Lakelovers. They could have been phrased in a little more friendly fashion. There was a lack of specific information about the property. For example that the hot water was off and needing switching on. I had a cold shower the first morning.

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay, and found the decor to your liking. We will look at the instructions left in the property to see if they need to be changed. Thank you- The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Extremely comfortable stay for five adults, one baby and one dog."

    Plenty of room for all with large comfortable beds in specious well appointed rooms. There were three bathrooms upstairs, one ensuite, plus a downstairs cloakroom. The house is obviously very loved by it's owners and they have equipped the home to a very high standard. If you love quality natural materials you will be pleasantly rewarded with the use of stone and oak. Best of all was the location. Stunning views from every angle. A lovely little walk up to the Mortal Man pub using the path behind the church. We enjoyed the walk back down looking at the interesting little village. The garden is a mature treat. We were blessed with perfect weather early in June and I found myself just sitting and gazing at the gorgeus environment. Only slight downside is the poor Wifi coverage. A booster here and there might help. Although there is a vast supply of maps and tourist information in the house some local hints and tips and general house information would have been a nice to have. Thank you for providing the makings of a lovely family get together and holiday.

    Thank you for your kind comments. It is lovely to read that you enjoyed the views. We take all comments on board. We hope to welcome you again. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Great accommodation."

    .lovely location only problem..if there was a fire there is only one exit..the front door! There were no keys for the other doors in the property. Is that legal?

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The rear exits from the lounge and the kitchen which are patio doors lead to the patio and should have keys. The main front door which is classed as the main escape door is fitted with a keyless exit in line with expectation. We will check with the owner to ensure that the rear doors can be accessed. *UPDATE: There are keys to the external doors.* We hope to welcome you back. NB. To be clear there is a brass key on the key ring left in the key box and this is for the second lock on the front door and every other external door to the house. Property Owner

    Loads of space. Great bedrooms and bathrooms. Sitting room would benefit from sofas replacing though maintaining the country house style would be ideal. Kitchen very well equipped. Home from home.

    The cottage was very well equipped, comfortable and a lovely garden. Shame the WIFI only worked in the kitchen (just needs a booster). Otherwise a perfect stay and would love to go back. Ate at the Queens Head in the village, lovely food worth a visit.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Coach House, the kitchen was extremely well stocked, plenty of space and the bathrooms were very clean."

    We were disappointed not to have any garden furniture for our Easter week, especially as the weather was glorious. The pillows were uncomfortable and the bath towels were definitely on the small side. My teenage kids found it frustrating that the wifi only worked in 1 bedroom and not in all rooms downstairs, including the games room.

    House requires booster for WiFi - especially in office . Was to be holiday were I could work. Ended up loosing two days as had to return home. Wasps nest in roof above toilet in en-suite. No problem with wasps but needs to be fixed. Fans in en-suite and shower room did not work. Bath towels too small. Shower turn on in shower room very difficult as some times would turn shower on sometimes not. Requires fixing.gardener turned up on Thursday. We did not know he was coming. Went straight into garden did not ring door bell or check with us before starting work. He had his dog with him and just let it run around garden. This set our dog of barking . Took our dog out on lead to meet the gardener dog but it showed our dog it’s teeth. Said to gardener I was not really happy with this situation and he agreed to come back the next day when we had left.

The property

The Old Coach House is simply gorgeous.

Set in the charming village of Troutbeck with its country pub and village store, this statement property would be hard to beat.

The views are breath-taking and the house itself, the epitome of luxury and style.

The ideal place to share a celebration, or simply enjoy a special break, The Old Coach House will wow all your guests.

The main entrance hall leads to the first of two reception rooms.

Described as the drawing room, with open fire and views of the garden, this a very special place to rest and relax.

Moving on to the open plan kitchen and dining room with slate worktops (mined locally from Coniston Old Man), guests are blown away by the feeling of light and space.

Cooking is a joy in a setting like this one.

French doors lead from the kitchen into the gorgeous garden, revealing mountains and more of the fabulous views.

A second reception room can be found on the ground floor, as well as a useful cloakroom with basin and wc. Upstairs are three splendid double rooms, each with a king size bed, and a spacious twin.

The master room comes with luxury en-suite bathroom featuring a romantic double ended bath and bay window…champagne please!

One of the king size beds can be made up as two single beds when arranged in advance.

There is also a family bathroom, also with a double ended bath, and a wet room with amazing power shower.

This floor is also home to the study, a quiet space but still with those spectacular views. Outside the gardens are a suntrap, the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine or morning coffee.

Garden furniture is supplied from Easter to October half term.

There is parking for four cars, ideal for when some of your group want to make the short drive to the lively villages of Ambleside or Windermere.

The Old Coach House with its secluded location, is a glorious retreat with walks, water sports, restaurants, independent shops, museums, galleries, cruises and cinemas on its doorstop.

About the location


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.

We have installed a Heatmiser in the house. Its winter setting is 21 degrees from 6.30am to 10pm except for 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm when it is set at 16 degrees, and 16 degrees again over night. It is controlled from my phone. I am not completely sure about it, as a telephone line fault in the village caused a problem with it, so it is susceptible to power cuts as well as internet/telephone line errors.
